BEGINNERS GUIDE TO WORDPRESS

Beginners Guide To WordPress

If you’re looking to create your own website and you’re using WordPress, you’re in luck. WordPress is one of the easiest to understand, most user-friendly options around, and it’s perfect for beginners. To get you started, here are some WordPress basics.

WordPress is an open-source, easy-to-use, semantic publishing platform with a wide array of features, including a free, intuitive content management system. It is designed to be user-friendly without limiting functionality. The site has tremendous community support and a library of 50,000 free open-source Plugins and Themes — with more coming all the time. It has everything you need to build a website for business, self-promotion, education or whatever purpose you need it to serve.

Other benefits of WordPress include the fact that it is browser-based, so you can just log in from any computer to manage your site without the need for any special software, and you don’t need any HTML editing software. You can just type directly into WordPress, and the platform will translate for the system so the content comes out on the front end looking exactly as you entered it. In addition, search engines are very sensitive to WordPress, so if you’re trying to get traffic to your site, WordPress may give you an edge.

A WordPress PlugIn is simply a piece of software that adds functionality to your WordPress site. PlugIns can do almost anything, from creating custom animations, to enabling social icons to handling Search Engine Optimization. While WordPress has a very useful interface, it is designed to be lean and efficient, so you can add only the features you need and not be bogged down with ones you don’t. If there’s something your website doesn’t do that you want it to do, just look for the right PlugIn.

If you’re getting your WordPress hosting from InfoQuest, WordPress can be installed directly from your customer control panel in under 5 minutes.  Alternatively, you can perform a manual installation of WordPress, or have InfoQuest work with you on any custom installation requirements.

Once you have it installed, log in to the back end of your website by typing in your domain name and adding /wp-admin to the end to access the administration area. Then log into WordPress with your username and password. You’ll be taken to the Dashboard, where you’ll find everything you need to add content, change your site’s appearance, set up additional features, etc.

Take some time to look around the dashboard and see all the different things you can do and what they look like before you really go to work. Create a test post to make sure you can do it and see what it looks like. Experiment with different themes for your site’s appearance. Remember, anything you change, you can always change back later.

Absolutely. Great images are crucial to making a site eye-catching and noteworthy. Like most aspects of WordPress, adding images to a post is extremely easy. You can drag an image right onto the post editor where you’re writing your content, or use the toolbar to upload an image.

You can also add images directly to the Media Library on your WordPress site. However, when you insert an image into a post, it is automatically saved to the Media Library, so you don’t need to do this.

Posts are the heart of your WordPress site. After clicking “posts” and “add new,” you’ll get a copy box where you’ll type in the content you want to appear on your site. Don’t forget to add a title to the title box as well. Put in whatever content you want, then press publish to send it to the front end of the site where your viewers can see it.

Posts will appear in reverse chronological order on the site, most recent first. You can always change the dates on a post if you want to. Don’t forget to sort the posts into categories you create, as well as tag them with relevant keywords.

You’ll see that when you have the option to create a post, you also have the option to create what is called a page. A page is a piece of content that exists outside your regular content community. These are static pages designed to provide specific information, rather than regularly changing content meant to inform, sell or serve whatever purpose your blog is primarily for.

Examples would be an “About Us” page or a “Contact” page. People can go to these pages to get the information they may want or need, but it is not part of the main site experience.

Allowing comments on your WordPress posts is a great way to interact with your users. However, you may have specific ideas about how you want comments to work.

Go to the Settings>Discussion Screen to manage the way comments are handled on your site, including how you moderate comments, how link notifications work with your posts and how your site will determine what is spam.

In addition to the WordPress support provided by InfoQuest, there is no shortage of help available for WordPress, so if you get into trouble, assistance is usually only a few clicks away. Remember, one of the major benefits of WordPress is that it’s a community built by users, so there are always people ready, willing and able to help. You can go to WordPress’ own information site to find answers to your questions, or you might visit one of the many WordPress forums scattered throughout the web. You can often even find the answer to your WordPress question just by typing that question directly into Google.

Don’t be afraid to turn to the internet for WordPress assistance. And by the time you’ve been running your WordPress site for a few months, you might even become skilled enough that you can offer some answers and advice of your own to the WordPress community.

WordPress provides the website, but you have to find a place for that website to live. The internet is actually a network of computer servers that host individual websites. When you type a URL address into your browser, it finds the server where your site is located and directs your computer to that location.

You can simply create a WordPress blog, hosted on WordPress’ own server, but this will not provide the level of professionalism you need to have a truly successful website. You want your own domain name, your own related email addresses and other benefits you can only gain from professional web hosting. Without it, your site will probably be seen as just another faceless blog, rather than the key marketing or informational tool it can be and that you want it to be for you.

There are a number of different types of web hosting, each with their own features and benefits. You will usually be making a tradeoff between how private and isolated the server that is hosting your website is and how much you want to pay. The options include:

Shared Web Hosting: In a shared web hosting plan, your site is hosted on the same server as other websites. They do not share your domain name or your traffic, but more popular websites on the server, or many websites getting traffic at the same time, may affect the performance of your site. On the other hand, because you are sharing the cost, this type of plan can be very affordable

Virtual Private Server (VPS): This is a very popular choice for people or companies that don’t want to pay for a full server or share resources with other people’s sites. With a VPS, you are still sharing a server with others, but your piece of the server is dedicated, or partitioned, from the rest. This means other websites on the server cannot drain your resources.

Dedicated Server: This is the most expensive option: renting the entire server. You don’t have to worry about traffic or interference from any other websites on the server because there are no other websites on it.

Colocation: If this is your first website, colocation is not for you. However, if you become an experienced website provider, or your company does, you may end up opting for colocation. You provide your own private server, and the data center simply provides a rack, physically hosting your server at their location.

Reseller Hosting: This is an option you will usually only pursue if you are considering website developing as a business. This is a scenario where you buy space on a server, and then you can resell some of that space to other websites. In effect, it’s a plan where you can sublet server space.

Before going on a long journey seeking a WordPress web host, take a look at InfoQuest. InfoQuest offers professional WordPress hosting that is fast, easy, affordable and always available. Plans start at less than $5 per month, so there’s no big investment, which is great if you’re new to having your own website. In fact, you can even sign up for a 30-day free trial, so you can see exactly how your WordPress web hosting will work before making any kind of commitment.

InfoQuest WordPress web hosting is designed for the new WordPress user. It comes with one-click WordPress installation so you don’t need any technical knowledge at all to get started. You also get around-the-clock support — 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year — so you’ll always have a professional to talk to when you have a problem. You will find this invaluable when starting out, as you may well be working on your website at any time, and problems don’t arise according to a traditional 9-to-5 schedule.

You also get unlimited disk storage and bandwidth, free email hosting and webmail, fast servers and easy-to-use MySQL database tools. InfoQuest is designed for both the experienced and new user of web hosting.

In addition, InfoQuest has three web hosting plans to suit a range of budget and feature requirements.

TERMS OF USE

How much disk space and bandwidth will my plan include?

For plans that include unlimited disk space or data transfer (bandwidth), there are no defined limits on the disk space or bandwidth that we provide with those plans.

That being said, we do require all customers to be fully compliant with our Terms of Service and utilize disk space and bandwidth in the normal operation of a personal or small business website. While it is rare, we may need to put constraints on accounts that are using resources that impact other customers on the same server.

Typically, customers only run into issues if they use their accounts for storage or file sharing, which is not what our services are intended to support. In accordance with our Terms of Services the disk space and bandwidth you use must be integrated into the normal operation of your website.

For Example, customers who are affecting other clients or are using 25% or more of system resources for longer then 90 seconds would be in violation. Please see our Terms of Service or contact us for complete details and restrictions.

What happens if I exceed usage?

If we have concerns about your account’s bandwidth or disk space utilization, you will receive an email asking you to reduce usage.

Again, it is very rare for a customer who is managing a personal or small business website to exceed our usage policies.
