You are probably wondering about the claim I am making about building a WordPress site in less than a minute. I fully understand your scepticism. But I hope by the end of this article you will see that it is possible to do just that.
You are probably wondering about the claim I am making
First of all let me say that I have been using WordPress to build several websites. I settled on WordPress because it provided not only an excellent blogging platform, but it also acts as a content management system, making it very easy to setup and maintain the site’s content and features. If you want to read more about content management systems please refer to this article.
But you needed to know about and how to do the following to build a site:
- ?FTP?ing files
- Setting up databases
- Worrying about DNS or Domain Registrars
- HTML or PHP
- Install xpensive add on programs
Even for a long time IT professional like myself this was difficult to do.
Then you had to do the following to install a website manually:
- Acquire your domain name
- Provision web hosting
- Download the WordPress software
- Create your SQL database for your WordPress site
- Install the WordPress package
- Perform some initial hoesekeeping on the site
- Install essential security and performance plugins and widgets
Do you really want to install the website manually when it can be done automatically in no time at all?
Then came along WordPress Express. Essentially this allows for the creation of a fully functional website in seconds. All the hard stuff is taken care of for you in no time at all. Many hosting companies are using this for their clients. Bluehost and Go Daddy are two of those. Also the internet marketing program known as Wealthy Affiliate is also providing their community initial sites created with this feature. See my article about the Wealthy Affiliate program here for more details of this great program.
Then came along WordPress Express
I would like to show you now the following video which illustrates just how simple it is to now get up and running with WordPress and hopefully put your scepticism to rest.
So now you have seen the power that tools like WordPress Express possess. Out of the box you will get a fully functional website that you can build out easily with quality content. Also since WordPress is supported by thousands of developers you can also add functionality to your site via free plugins and widgets.
