0044 - From 0 - Website in 1hr
Hi Guys and Ladies,
For those of you new to buying a domain and setting up a website on it, let me tell you that with the help of www.namecheap.com, Wordpress and Wealthy Affiliate it is SO easy.
I registered a domain with Namecheap, paid for it, transferred the hosting (DNS) to WA, chose a Wordpress theme (by far the longest part) and wrote my opening (About Me) page, chose a temporary header image and published the website for the world to see in less than an hour!
OK, you have to be a premium member of WA to have your own domain hosted by WA, and I was already registered with Namecheap, so it will take you a little longer if Namecheap don't already have your details. Also, you have to know how to transfer the DNS to WA, but honestly, it's incredibly easy with Namecheap.
My new website, with temporary header image (photo) and the welcome page, is www.bustersnuts.com .
Buster is one of my girlfriend's two dogs. He's a real character. I am going to attempt to monetize the site in due course, but the aim at the moment is to develop it as a blog, hence 'The Blog of The Dog' !
You're in the best community. WA to go! - Dave.
