Website Design – Getting Started

Transform Your Vision into Creative Results

We are creative adventurers from building one page websites that showcase your services to more complicated multi-pages designs and e-commerce. Websites that are designed with WordPress are light in weight and super fast.

WordPress is an online, open source website creation tool written in PHP. But in non-geek speak, it’s probably the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today.

Purchasing Your Domain Name

The first thing you need in order to have a website is to have
a Domain name.

A Domain name is what you type in to a browser window to visit a site, such as http://www.linkalead.  A domain name is how anyone from anywhere in the world can access your site.If you’ve already registered your domain name, then you’re good to go for the next step—hosting. If you haven’t registered a domain name, the easiest way is to do it as you sign up for hosting. But you can also purchase (register) your domain name before you are
ready to sign up for a hosting account – Park your Domain

Hosting

 Setting Up Your Hosting Account

In order for your website to appear on the web, it has to be hosted somewhere. Think of hosting like a storage facility. It’s a place for you to store all of your stuff (your website) on the web. The more stuff you have (the bigger your site) the more storage space you need. There are many web hosting companies that offer a wide variety of hosting plans. Just note that with hosting you
get what you pay for. Be careful about choosing a cheap shared hosting plan, as many hosting companies overload their servers, which will impact the speed of your own site. It’s also essential that you work with one that is “WordPress friendly.” While this isn’t an official designation, of course, just something we’ve learned to look for over the years.

 SSL Certifcate is needed for your eCommermce website

Why do you need a certificate?

Information Security
SSL is essential for any website that sells goods and services or captures sensitive content, as it ensures that all information handled stays private and secure.

Provides Trust
Customers visiting your website will know that you have encryption in place with “https” and a padlock icon appearing in the browser’s address bar – an added level of assurance that their information is safe.

SSL improves SEO
Google takes online security seriously and considers SSL certificates on a website as a positive search engine optimisation (SEO) ranking signal. This means that if your website uses SSL you stand a greater chance of ranking higher than your competitors.

WordPress Theme

 Improving your site’s visual appeal.

.

A WordPress theme is a group of files (graphics, style sheets, and code) that dictates the overall appearance of your blog or website. Themes can control something as vast as your site’s layout, or as minute as your hyperlink colors. It’s easy to think of a theme as a ‘skin’ for your site, but they are much more powerful than that.

Rather than simply providing a look and feel for your blog, a theme enables you to control the presentation of your site. For example, let’s say you blog about food, but you also have an online store. The right theme can display your blog posts in a certain way while offering a completely different layout for your store’s pages.

Themes are an inherent part of WordPress. In fact, the platform includes a number of themes out of the box.
