How to Create a Professional Blog or Website without Coding | Make a Professional Blog or Website without Coding
Do you want to make your own blog or a professional website? But you don’t know anything about coding. Still, you can create a professional blog or website. In this blog post, I’m going to share that, how can you make a blog or a website like a pro without any coding. Here are some simple steps that you have to follow in order to create a professional blog or website.
Here, I will share what I personally think is the best way to make a website or blog and make your work done completely with ease. So just follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Buy Domain Name
The very first thing you have to do is to think and purchase/buy the name for your website, called as Domain Name.
For example- Suppose that ‘terminternet.com‘ is the name of my blog, so it is my domain name. In a similar way, you have to buy the name of your website or we can say Domain name. The domain name can be purchased from various websites like GoDaddy, BigRock, etc.
Step 2: Buy Web Hosting
When you’re done with buying the domain name, you need to buy web hosting. Now, probably you may have a question that what is a web hosting? Just like you need a space for living on this planet, it might be a quarter, a room, a villa, a home, or anything where we generally live in, either we pay the rent for it or purchase the place. In the same way, we need a space on the internet to put our data, which is called as web hosting. And to purchase it, we need to pay. You may purchase a web hosting from any one of the websites like GoDaddy, HostGator, Bluehost, etc.
Now, when you have completed the above-mentioned two steps, only then you will be able to make a website, otherwise, you can’t.
Step 3: Connect Domain to DNS Server
Now the next step is to connect your Domain name with your web hosting so your blog or website might become online. Now let’s check how could you connect your domain name with the web hosting.
At first, you have to go to the website from where you have purchased your Domain name and sign in there.
After you done with Sign in, you have to look for the option ‘Manage Domains’. Clicking on this link will show you, your purchased domain, Click on the domain name.
After clicking on the domain name, you will have an option ‘Manage DNS’, click and open the link.
Under manage DNS screen you will have a ‘Nameservers’ option where you have to put the name of your web hosting that you may have received on your e-mail.
At last, just go with the save button and within 24-48 hours your domain name will be connected to your server name of web hosting then, your blog or your website will be online.
Step 4: Open Control Panel
Now, when you have successfully connected your domain name with your web hosting, it turns to manage the blog. You need to open control panel now, from wherever you have purchased web hosting, just after the purchase, they send an e-mail and, in that e-mail, they have mentioned the address of Control Panel. From the control panel, you can manage the entire blog or website.
(Please do not share your password with anyone as it may lead to delete or hack your blog easily, keep your password secret).
When you’ll open the URL of the control panel it’ll open the control panel and ask you for username and password that is given to you in your e-mail inbox. Fill the username and password and Log in. You opt to change your username and password after you log in first time with the given username and password.
Now when you are logged in to Control Panel, it’s up to you how will you set up or manage your blog. If you know the web programming languages then simply using the ‘file manager’, ‘directory privacy’ and ‘FTP accounts’ you can set up your own personal blog.
But if you don’t have any kind of knowledge about web programming languages then you can go simply with the ‘Softaculous Apps Installer’ click on it and it will jump you to a new screen from where you have to click on ‘WordPress’. After clicking on ‘WordPress’, click on ‘install’. Then a new screen will appear with a form with various options in which one will be ‘URL’. In this URL you have to fill the name of your Domain like a URL, like this one ‘https://www.terminternet.com‘. Leave rest of the things to default in this section and jump to the ‘Admin Account’ section where you have to set the admin username and admin password, after this just save the settings. Note down the admin URL from this screen, as this is the URL from where you can manage your blog or website, also take care that you never share this URL to anyone.
Now, simply click on admin URL and on new screen click on ‘Login with username and password’. Now fill the username and password here that you have recently set in the admin account section and press ‘Login’.
Now as soon as you log in, you will have ‘appearance’ option in the side navigation menu, click on it and select Themes, on themes click again. Now this will let you add themes from various themes according to you by pressing the add new button on that screen, that you can use for your blog or website. To use any theme just install the theme and make it active.
Now from the same navigation menu, add pages and write posts and publish them. WordPress also offers many plugins and various themes for free.
Yes, I know this is a little bit hard and time-consuming to make your blog more attractive so you’ll learn more about it on your own as you work with this.
