Create a fast WordPress website for your business!
Start a website the right way
In our experience as WordPress developers/designers for businesses in different industries – from news & media, eCommerce, B2B, membership, enterprise, and even personal blogs for almost 10 years, we have seen the trend of needing to optimize the site for speed later on to improve visibility, search ranking, and user experience. Because of this, we at WP Superhero have decided to create guides on how to start a fast WordPress website from the very beginning of your journey, not on the later part.
This page content is intended to help beginners, DIYers, and non-techy entrepreneurs to start a website the right way.
Pick & buy a domain name. A domain name is your website’s address on the internet. A good example would be google.com or yahoo.com. In this step, you have to choose a good domain name for your website. Pick one that fits your brand, short and memorable for your user or target customer.
Through the years, we have been using and recommending Namecheap for the price and easy management. Of course, use your preferred domain registrar or skip this step if you already have a domain name.
Once you have completed the purchase of your domain name, it’s time to get hosting for your website. A web host puts your website on the internet. Selecting a good web hosting is critical in our goal in this tutorial – creating a fast business website using WordPress.
We have tested a plethora of web hosting in the market today and will go ahead and recommend the one that we think is best for business websites. We definitely recommend going with 10Web and you’ll soon see why in this tutorial. They offer a 14-day trial so, there’s no risk to follow this tutorial all the way through to finish.
