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 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.
