Creating an amazing WordPress website step-by-step
Our current website isn’t perfect, but we created it without any experience in 3 days and we are quite satisfied with the result. We, therefore, decided to share how we did it, easily, step-by-step.
Firstly, we bought all the necessary domains via a Czech company active24.cz. The difference in prices was negligible compared to bigger international companies and we preferred to communicate with a Czech company. This turned out to save us sometime later.
Secondly, we bought hosting for our domains. We again chose Active24 to have it all together, but there are plenty more companies for that as well. Just google it and be sure to look for the reviews.
Thirdly, we installed WordPress. Normally you have to download it and install it to be able to edit your page, but in our case, we had that covered through Active24 that provides everything needed and you simply log into your WordPress account and edit everything online. They even helped us with that process. (This is starting to look like a paid ad for Active24 :D, but it really isn’t!)
Finally, we opened WordPress and played around for a couple of hours. After trying maybe 5 themes we realized doing it this way would take us forever without any reasonable result. We, therefore, started to look for videos about how to actually make a perfect website when we bumped into the channel of Hogan Chua, who’s video “How to make a Parallax WordPress Website 2017 – AMAZING!” saved us so much time! We simply followed all the instructions in the video and made a couple of changes here and there. We also used many other pieces of advice, he has on his website hoganchua.com. Thank you, Hogan, for your amazing content We also “inspired ourselves” a lot from sites like apple.com and tesla.com using the colors they use, making similar buttons as them and so on. But we will write more about that maybe another time.
