WordPress Website Setup D.I.Y. Guide
This article will show you the easiest and cheapest way to set up a website from scratch including domain registration, hosting plan subscription, and setting up the website using WordPress.
Why do we recommend using WordPress as your website content management system?
We recommend WordPress because it is flexible, expandable and of course extremely beginner-friendly. You don’t require an IT degree to handle it. Some important features include the plugin architecture and their template system which is also referred to as WordPress Themes.
Build a WordPress website from scratch (in just 4 simple steps)
Step 1 : Domain Registration
Domain name of a website is the “yourdomainname.com”.
Buy a .com domain name with Namecheap.
WHOIS ID Protection is included to protect your personal information and reduce the amount of spam to your inbox.

Step 2 : Hosting Plan Subscription
Websites are hosted or stored on special computers called servers. You will need to subscribe to a hosting plan from a web hosting service provider.
We recommend you the Semi-Pro CPanel Web Hosting Plan by ServerFreak.

ServerFreak is one of the best performing hosting companies with superb support.
Step 3 : Connect Domain with Hosting
In your Namecheap account page, under your purchased domain, click on “manage nameserver”.
Check “Use custom nameservers” and fill up the Nameserver 1 and Nameserver 2 with the “Account DNS” from ServerFreak.
Step 4 : WordPress Installation & Content
Go to your ServerFreak Cpanel and install WordPress for your website.
Choose a WordPress theme and insert your content. Design your website accordingly.
