To create your website you will need a domain name and a website hosting account. In this tutorial we will cover signing up for both of those with SiteGround. SiteGround truly is a great hosting company and I personally use and recommend them.
After you have signed up for hosting with SiteGround there are a few important things you need to do to initially set up your account. There are some emails we need to attend too, then we need to perform the initial website setup from our SiteGround account, this is easy and installs WordPress for us to get the ball rolling.
WordPress is now set up and running, we should configure some initial settings and do some starter SEO stuff. The SiteGround wizard has installed a handful of plugins for us, one of those is an SEO Plugin called Yoast SEO, let's configure that also.
I have shown you how to customize the HomePage, however that was mostly modifying the demo content provided to us. In this tutorial I'll show you how to create a new page from scratch using the Elementor plugin. We will style this page to match the look of our website.
With SiteGround hosting we get this additional 'SG Optimizer' plugin for WordPress which helps boost the loading speed of our website. This is a good bonus and we should definitely use it. In this video I'll show you how to configure that and also to ensure we have told search engines to index our website.
