How to make your business live?

The term to ‘go live’ means the process that includes pointing your domain name to your site. Once your site becomes live, everyone will be able to see and access your content. It involves a few steps listed below:

How to make your business live

Get a domain name

Domain name is an official address for your site on the web. It is a unique address as there cannot be any duplicate addresses on the net. You need to purchase it from a domain name registrar. The domain name will come at a price. There is a certain amount you need to pay per year and you can register it from one to 10 years. You need to pay for it because there is a central ‘address book’ of all the world’s domain names that has to be updated and to maintain that, payments are required. Domain names usually end with .com, .net or .org.

Web hosting

After you buy a domain name and want people to see your website, you will need a web host for that. Web hosting enables users to store their HTML and image files. In other words, if you want others to read or browse your website, you will need domain name and hosting both. Then you will need to install WordPress to your domain. Most of the hosting companies have integrated click installation for WordPress. You just need to browse your hosting cPanel and you will come across the way to install it.  For that, you need to log in to your hosting account and go to the control panel. There you will find the WordPress icon. Choose the domain where you want to install your site. Finally, press the ‘Install Now’ button and that will give you access to your WordPress site.

Set a Theme or layout for your site

This step involves logging into your WordPress dashboard to change the layout and start building your site. And you will also need a theme which will go with your topic or content on the site. You can find more than 1500 free themes on your WordPress dashboard. After you have selected a theme, you need to click ‘Install’ and then‘Activate’.  If you are not too happy or are confused about the theme, you can come back later to search and change the themes as often as you want. Change in the themes won’t affect your posts and content.  After you are done with the theme’s installation, you can start creating content.

Install plugins

WordPress also enables users to install different plugins and help make the website more personal. To install plugins, go to Plugins option and select ‘Add New’ and then start your search. There are more than 25,000 different plugins that you can choose from.
