How To Build A Website From Scratch: If you are looking to build a website from sratch for personal, business or online passive income streams, then we have the solution for you. We use WordPress and we have found it to be an excellent tool for creating websites, especially websites from scratch.
Before you start building your website, you will need to register a website domain name and find a website hosting plan. Usually, when you purchase a website hosting plan, these companies provide a place to register domain names. Furthermore, some website hosting plans include one free domain registration.
There are several ways to build a website from scratch. We have used several methods over the years. However, the method that is easiest these days is WordPress. We use WordPress to build websites for ourselves and for our clients. We also use Dreamweaver but today with mobile friendly websites (responsive designs), WordPress is the best way to build a website from scratch.
How To Build a Website From Scratch

How To Build a Website From Scratch With WordPress
Once you have setup WordPress on your web hosting account and registered your domain name, you are ready to start building your website.
You will need to choose a WordPress theme for your website. There are free themes available; however, I encourage my clients to purchase a premium theme that comes with step-by-step instructions for setup from beginning to end. Once you get familiar with your theme, you will begin to customize it to your liking. I use Studio Press child themes with Genesis framework.
Not everyone can set up WordPress or WordPress themes, so our clients usually employ me to setup their websites with WordPress themes and then I hand it over to them. All they need to do then is write content for their website. WordPress allows you to build a great website with themes and plugins (most plugins are free). As you can see, this website is a WordPress website using a Studio Press child theme with the Genesis Framework.
