WordPress – An Overview

I Have A Website But I Want Better Results – Can WordPress Help Me?

If you already have a website, consider the following possibilities:

Your website may have been built using WordPress but you may not know it!

Over 25% of all websites use WordPress. Your website could be built using WordPress, but for some reason, your web developer hasn’t informed you of this.

After all … a website’s a website, right?

Wrong! WordPress is so much more than just a website or blogging software. It’s also a powerful content management system, a cost-effective traffic generation and business marketing tool, and a flexible, scalable, and modular platform that lets you quickly build (and automate) almost any kind of business model or idea you can conceive.

If you’re wondering whether your existing website runs on WordPress or not, check out this tutorial:

If your website is powered by WordPress, use our step-by-step tutorials to learn how to grow and manage your online presence. We cover everything from how to use WordPress, to how to automate web traffic, how to protect, maintain and keep your website secure, how to easily update your WordPress software, add-ons (called plugins) and web design templates (called themes), and so much more!

You can keep your existing website and use a WordPress blog to explode your online marketing results!

WordPress is free, easy to use and puts you in complete control of your online presence (that’s why millions of users people worldwide love it!). You can keep your existing website and add a powerful blog (or membership site, e-commerce store, etc.) to your domain (or another domain) that you can then use to drive more visitors and prospects to your business.

Our tutorials show you exactly how to install WordPress on your domain (and where to install WordPress if you already have an existing website), how to expertly configure all of your settings, and how to use WordPress, with no coding skills required … for FREE!

Can I Really Build A Professional Website For My Business With No Coding Skills … In One Day?

Yes, you can!

Our comprehensive step-by-step tutorials will show you how. Everything you see here on WPCompendium.org was built using WordPress by someone with absolutely no coding skills (you can read more about us here) and we can show you how to do the same for your business idea or organization.

Building A WordPress Site - Timeline

Fact: Once you know what to do, installing a WordPress website or blog on your domain only takes a few minutes.

In fact, we’ve recorded a quick video below where we show you how to install WordPress on a brand new domain name in less than 60 seconds …

If you follow our WordPress Installation step-by-step tutorials from start to finish, the first time you install WordPress will probably take you a day. The next time you install WordPress, it will probably take you a few hours. Once you have mastered the process, performing a new WordPress installation will take you no more than a minute or two. You’ll be able to install WordPress on your domain with just a few mouse clicks!

Building a website with WordPress - Timeline

(Building a new website with WordPress – Timeline)

As the above diagram shows, installing WordPress on a domain name only takes a few minutes. Configuring WordPress settings after the installation takes a little longer (1-2 days or more). Preparing the initial content prior to launching your site is what normally takes the longest time in this entire process.

The Bottom Line: Build In One Day, Launch In One Week!

You can build a new website WordPress in one day – in fact, you can build it in minutes! A newly-installed WordPress site will even work right out of the box (WPCompendium.org uses a default WordPress installation theme!)

If you want to get better results with your website, however, you will want to spend a few days planning your website before installing, then configuring your settings after installation, and adding your initial content before launching. Regardless of whether you plan to create the initial content yourself, outsource it or a combination of both (e.g. you write the content and hire a graphic designer to create your logos, headers, banners, etc.), you should allow at least a week or two, then, before your new website is ready to launch.

Building A Website With WordPress -  Costs

If you install WordPress yourself and follow our detailed step-by-step tutorials and our Digital Business Blueprint, here’s what you can expect in terms of initial costs in addition to your time:

  • WordPress Installation & Configuration Tutorials: FREE!
  • WordPress Software: FREE! (Learn more)
  • Domain Name: $10-$12 p/year.
  • Web Hosting: price varies, but can start from as little as $50 or less per year.

As you can see, you can create a professional website for around $60 per year, plus your time.

The Bottom Line: Start Inexpensively, Spend Only When Necessary!

We show you how to launch your website very inexpensively and how to grow and manage everything yourself with many free and low-cost options and solutions.

After your initial costs, we do recommend budgeting a few hundred dollars for expanding the functionality of your website with some useful premium plugins and improving your web design with a premium theme.

With WordPress, anything and everything can be easily changed at any time, so there’s no need to start off investing large amounts of money. We recommend starting simply and inexpensively and doing as much as you can yourself until you have a clear and better understanding of your needs.

Building A Website With WordPress From Scratch -  Why Learn To Do It Yourself?

Building A WordPress Site - Why Learn To Do It Yourself?You are probably wondering … why build your own website? Why not just hire a professional web developer to build a website for you?

Great question! Consider these facts, however:

Fact: It takes less time to do it yourself!

As we’ve explained earlier, you can install WordPress in minutes, configure WordPress settings in a day or two, and launch a professional website in just a few days.

After your website is launched, you can easily get most things done yourself or in-house very quickly with easy-to-install and easy-to-use WordPress plugins, WordPress themes, and WordPress widgets. Our step-by-step tutorials will show you how to easily get things done without requiring technical skills or getting experts involved.

Fact: Most people don’t save time or money outsourcing!

In many respects, the idea that outsourcing saves time and money is a myth. You will only save time outsourcing services like website management, website maintenance, and online marketing if you have a clear understanding of the work that needs to be done and the processes involved. If you don’t, you have no way to discern the quality of the advice given to you or measure the effectiveness of services until things have run their course, your money has been spent, and you are left with either a positive or negative outcome (e.g. ROI).

It’s like people who use brokers to trade in shares. There are two types of people who do share trading … those who know what they are doing and those who don’t. Those who know what they are doing save time and money outsourcing because they understand how to qualify and instruct brokers to execute the client’s business strategy. Those who don’t know what they are doing often end up buying products and solutions from salespeople with self-serving interests and wasting valuable time and money in the process.

The way to really save time, then, is to educate yourself about WordPress and the web planning process before getting web developers or technical experts involved. This way, you will know what areas of your digital strategy are faster and easier (and cheaper) to get done in-house, and what can be outsourced to truly save you time. Once you are informed, you can then communicate your business strategy clearly to service providers and provide specific instructions to technical experts. This will help you get better results.

Fact: Learning WordPress will save you thousands of dollars in web development costs!

Spend a few minutes online and research the cost of getting the following kinds of websites built for you:

  • A professional website or blog for marketing your business or organization online that has been fully configured to instantly notify search engines and automatically syndicate your content to social media sites (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) and online directories as soon as a new article has been published on your site,
  • An e-commerce store with integrated online payment processing facilities,
  • A membership site that automatically processes payments online, registers new members, assigns them to the correct membership level and lets you schedule and automate content delivery,
  • An event management website with automated online payment, event registration, and calendar booking/scheduling facilities,
  • A customer support helpdesk website that automatically presents users with relevant knowledgebase answers before they contact you and assigns support tickets to different departments in your organization.
  • Lead capture web pages with video presentations and social sharing features that automatically add your prospects’ details to a sales funnel, newsletter, email marketing list, etc.

Consider what the cost would be, if you decide to expand your digital presence to include some or all of the above sites.

Getting the above sites built by professional web developers will cost you tens of thousands of dollars or more!

As we’ve just explained, you can build a professional website with WordPress from as little as around US$60 per year.

Now here’s the best part …

Once you know how to install and configure a WordPress site (which our step-by-step tutorials show you how to do), you can easily create any of the above types of websites (e-commerce store, membership site, customer support helpdesk, landing pages, etc) with inexpensive WordPress plugins and themes that can be installed easily and configured quickly, saving you thousands of dollars in the process … all without requiring coding skills!

Here is one more fact …

Fact: WordPress is addictive! 

Once you learn how to build and use websites with WordPress, you will have no shortage of ideas for new sites and new businesses online. With WordPress, the possibilities are truly endless!

So …

If you can build any type of website you can imagine from scratch at minimal cost, launch it in a few days, and get most things done without delay or coding skills, then the real question is …

Why would you not learn WordPress and build a great website yourself?

Yes ... you can build a great website with our free WordPress tutorials!

Because WordPress is so flexible and scalable and there’s so much free WordPress support available, you can take your online presence very far with minimal cost and only consider bringing in technical experts or investing in custom web development or web design once you have a clear understanding of your needs, and only if and when outsourcing work becomes necessary.

With WordPress, outsourcing is an option, not a requirement!

Learn the basics of using WordPress and you will become an informed and empowered user, save time and money, and be in complete control of your digital presence. WPCompendium.org’s free WordPress step-by-step tutorials will help you achieve all of this.

How To Install WordPress Using cPanel

Learn how to install WordPress on your domain in minutes using cPanel with no coding required.

Liquid Web Managed Word Press

How To Install WordPress Using cPanelThis tutorial is part of our WordPress installation step-by-step training module, where we show you how to install a WordPress site or blog with no coding skills required.

***

The easiest and fastest way to install WordPress on your domain is using software installation scripts provided in your web hosting management console. We recommend hosting on servers that offer the cPanel hosting management console.

If you have been following our WordPress Installation tutorials, you should have a web hosting account already set up with cPanel.

For more information about choosing a web hosting provider, see this tutorial:

In this tutorial you will learn how to install WordPress in minutes with cPanel using two popular software installation scripts:

  • Fantastico
  • Softaculous

Practical Tip

In addition to our detailed written tutorials, we also suggest watching the video tutorials listed in our WordPress Installation Video Tutorials section.

How To Install WordPress On Your Domain Using cPanel

Installing WordPress on your domain with cPanel only takes a few minutes. Make sure that your web hosting account has cPanel with either Fantastico or Softaculous software installation scripts configured as this will make installing a WordPress site on your domain a really simple and very quick process.

WordPress Installation Software

(WordPress Installation Scripts)

If your domain is hosted on a server with cPanel and you do not see either of these programs installed (go to your ‘Software/Services’ panel and look for Fantastico or Softaculous), contact your webhost provider and ask them to install these scripts on your server.

If you are not using cPanel hosting, then see this tutorial to learn how to install WordPress manually:

Your cPanel Account

Log into your cPanel account …

cPanel login

(cPanel login)

If you have just set up a new domain and logged into your webhosting account for the first time, you may want to go into the Mail > Email Accounts area and set up your email addresses, aliases, forwarders, usernames, passwords, etc.

(cPanel Mail panel – Email Accounts)

For help setting up email accounts, see the tutorial below:

  3. Administrator-username: Choose a login username for your site’s administration area.
  4. Password: Choose a password for your site’s administration area.

Fast WordPress Installation Method #2 – Install WordPress In cPanel Using Scriptaculous

Fantastico is a popular script installation program used by many web hosting providers, but it’s not the only program you can use to automatically install WordPress on your domain.

Depending on your web hosting service, you may see different software installation programs as an alternative or in addition to Fantastico. If you don’t see Fantastico listed in your cPanel admin area, look for an alternative, such as Softaculous, Simple Scripts, etc.

Softaculous offers a similar WordPress installation service as Fantastico, but with added features. Many web hosts provide Softaculous instead of Fantastico.

In cPanel, scroll down to the ‘Software and Services’ panel and click on Softaculous
