We’re going to go through a complete website creation and I’m going to show you the very best and easiest way of getting your new website online from start to finish.
I’m going to be with you every step of the way so you’re never going to be stuck and this is going to be no hassle whatsoever. It’s the quickest and most effective way of doing this.
This is what you’re going to be creating. Just have a look at this beautiful header, so if you’re a beginner or even if your more experienced, this is going to help you out so much because I’m also going to give you lots of tips and tricks to getting your website out there and the best way of creating a new website, and here’s your about page.
Again, a beautiful animation comes up and a contact page.
This website that we’re going to be creating together is inspired by people like apple and Mashable because all of these people use a beautiful big header at the top.
Just like this is inspiring and it draws people in. So hope you’re excited. Are you ready to get your new website online? Let’s get to it. Okay, I can’t wait to get going with this.
I’m really excited to create your new website with you. The first step is to choose a domain name and we’re going to be doing that in a minute. In the second step, we’re going to be creating a website and then the third step is called a share, like and repeat.
And this is all about me giving you some tips and tricks of my own that I use all the time to get your website out there and build your brand. So all really exciting stuff.
So let’s start on step number one. And for this step, all you need to do is click on the link in the description of this video. So if you’re watching this video on youtube, just go down to the description and find this link and click on that and it’s going to take you over to hostgator.com and you’re gonna be saving up to 60% by using hostgator because we’ve teamed up with hostgator and we’ve managed to get you up to 60% off your web hosting.
(When you sign up for Hostgator through my coupon code (wordpresshero) I will earn a commission for referring you, at no additional cost to you. This helps us continue to create this awesome content for you.)
This is a huge saving for you, so I do really encourage you to do this with us and by using hostgator. So you definitely want to click on get started now. So just click on get started now and it will take you over to this page. And in here is where you choose your new website’s name, which is also called a domain name.
And all you do is type that in here where it says search for a domain name. So you would type in whatever you want for your website name here, and then you can choose some.com.online.site. Anything that you’d like, care.co is down there. So do that right now.
The business plan is probably the best one to use if you want to set up a shop, but we’re not going to do that in this video.
But of course, if you’d like to do that, you want to choose business. Baby plan means you can have unlimited domains and the hatchling plan is just for one domain. So I’m just going to have the hatchling plan.
This is absolutely incredible if you’ve never used wordpress before. A theme is like I said, the look and the feel of your website is how it functions. So as you can see how you’ve got a few themes already installed and these are WordPress’s default themes right now.
The active theme is 2019 so the look and feel would be how it looks like right there. And then the 2017 to the right of that. So let’s click on add new theme right here. And this is going to take you to WordPress’s thousands and thousands of different themes available.
And you know, feel free to look through these sometime but you don’t need to right now because we have found the best theme to use and it’s called ocean WP. So just search for ocean WP in the search right here and here it is. It will appear here. And then all you do is click on install and activate.
And ocean WP has everything you need for a website, for a blog, for a shop. It does everything. It’s a pretty incredible theme. It’s actually probably the best theme we’ve ever used. A website’s made easy, so we don’t really bother using anything else is one of the best themes we’ve ever come across.
So as you can see now your new active themes, ocean WP, and you’ll have a little notification up here saying this theme recommends the following plugins, Elementor and ocean extra. So let’s begin installing these because we’re going to use those going forwards.
So let’s click on begin and stalling. And then from the dropdown, nope, sorry, you need to click here to select both of these and then from the drop down, click on install and apply and that will start installing and activating those plugins. Perfect. There we go. And don’t worry about this error.

Hello James the video was really great but you didn't taught us about blog sections, you only covered the home about and contact section!! so for blog we have to follow the same method you did for home, about and contact page??pls do reply
amazing tutorial, can you please help me if I can get the header like the logo, tagline and menus in the center rather then in the side. I want a simple white centre header
Thanks you James. I immediately downloaded the image pack and opened it. I have viewed all the images, and they are excellent. I believe it would be impossible to follow along with the video, unless we have, at our disposal, the beautiful images you are providing. I will now have much more confidence, as I follow along with you in your wonderful and informative tutorials. If anyone might be interested in how I pursue learning while viewing your video, I will be glad to provide an email address and help them. Of course, I would not attempt to post an email address without your permission. I will be glad to share my tips with any interested viewers.
Your comment about anyone being able to create a website is likely true in many instances, however it has been my experience that it takes the proverbial "patience of Job" to learn how to do it. The task definitely requires infinite patience, persistence, and a strong desire to succeed to achieve the ultimate goal. In my opinion, creating a business on the internet is not all that different than creating a bricks and mortar business. Of course, there is a much more likely chance of success and on a grander scale than with a traditional bricks and mortar business. There is no doubt computers and the internet have an extremely bright future – as they increase our efforts exponentially. Hopefully, those of us who struggle so mightily now, will ultimately reap the benefits we are seeking.
The link to the free image pack doesn't work for me either. Great video, but I can't continue till I can access the image pack download. I will be on pins and needles till it's available, as this is fantastic training! Thank you so much…
James — great tutorial but the link to download the image pack does not work
Thank you for your reply. There's something I've been meaning to ask of those who work within WP (I don't. I'm a designer using XD mostly). It has never been made clear to me why there is the need for both the Theme and the Page Builder? It seems that the Theme sticks you with headers and footers (that may be tedious and may conflict with the design prototype), while the page builder does the yeoman's share of the actual building of the website. Great if you could explain. Best to you.
James, is there a way to do layers like in design software? Say, if you have a gradient background for most of the homepage, how are images and test overlayed? Thanks.
I am getting an API error and i cannot create a page from elements
Great tips James!
Great tutorial ?!!! Thank you for sharing and I look forward to seeing more from you.
Thanks for info about these cool plug-ins!
Nice video James, great job 🙂
Minor detail, how does the site look on mobile? Does it work that easy to switch views? It should be a key factor I'd say
I am still waiting for the pinterest drainage blog or website beginner tutorial
You have forgotten that these tutorials are repeated. I hope you can remember.
