How to Make a WordPress Website from Scratch (UK Version) – Easy!

View the WordPress website you can build at http://www.wpeagledemo.com.

I’ve made a newer “How To Make a Website with WordPress” video over here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBWaEEHqTIs

In this video I show you How to Make a WordPress Website from Scratch, Step-By-Step. We literally start with nothing and finish with a fantastic WordPress website.

I’ve tried to make this video as easy to follow as possible on making your website. If you get stuck at any point please leave a comment below and i’ll try my best to help you out.

You will need to purchase a few things to get your site up and running but it won’t cost much. The main thing is WordPress hosting. For this I recommend the excellent TSOHOST. You’re also going to need the theme. The cost is tiny compared to using a WordPress website developer who charge over £1000 for a website like this.

This video is for people that want to host their WordPress website in the UK.

    Hey Dude, great video. it really helped. I have previously registered a domain name with Godaddy but want to trasfer it to Tsohost & use wordpress as per your advice. Only thing is when I click on my website (just after installing WP) it goes to a page that says "this page is parked courtesy of Godaddy". Ive contacted GD & they have said that i need to get a code from the new register? Any advice? Please! & many thanks in advance. Cheers, Jon

  • thanks great vid and I've subscribed to the channel, dove straight into making my own site 😀 used your discount code too cheers dude

    Hi Alex.
    I want to increase the size of the Logo at the top of the page from the standard 200 x 100px. I know I need to change the CSS but can't find the relevant script. Could you point me in the right direction please. BTW. Great instructional Movie 🙂

  • Hi Alex, I have designed a website using this video and with propulsion, I have a large banner logo across the top of the page but would like to increase the font size of the page header tabs like "Home" "About us" etc, how can I do this? Thanks

  • Linda Mellor says:

    Hi Alex, I am asking for your help once again with the Propulsion theme. I made a page the dynamic template, I have set it to full width and added 4 elements – 2 of them are blog widgets, I am not sure where to go to remove some text on the left hand side, it appears on both blogs – I have searched everywhere to see if I can remove it but I'm getting no joy at all. It has a small flag style bar with little edit icon and the words are 'this entry has 0 comments in 50 OU (the category I created) by Linda'. I would like to remove this, any suggestions how I do this? Many thanks, Linda

    Hi Alex
    Thanks for the offer code (a bit like asda "every little helps").
    I wonder if you could advise me on this minor issue?
    I went to register a domain address as a .co.uk & it said "taken transfer for free" does that mean someone else has it or it is available but i need to transfer it somehow?
    forgive me for not knowing anything at all about this 🙂
    any advice is greatly appreciated & very welcome.

  • Linda Mellor says:

    Hi Alex, Really pleased to have found your informative videos. I have followed your video and used your referral codes and I'm happy to say I have started on my website with the Propulsion theme. I wondered if you could help me further? I want to add a members log in area then add content. How would I go about it? Many thanks.

  • MisterKite says:

    Hello mate, I had set up my Tsohost account and domain and that, but the problem is that it looks like the site has been updated i think, i cannot seem to find the 'add new website' button. Instead, it takes me to a completely different dashboard to what you have on the screen. Any ideas on how I can find this?

    HELP PLEASE ON HOW TO DOWNLOAD WORDPRESS

  • James Harley says:

    Has anyone used hostinger it seems better and cheaper?

  • at 08.00 you use WordPress as the site and click on a logo to do so. But how do we know if that is wordpress.com or wordpress.org

    I find all this quite baffling. I just want to set up multiple (prob 5 or 6) WordPress sites to write about my hobbies but also have adsense attached so that i can make some pocket money. Searching through Youtube to find out how to do this is stroke-inducing.  If you can help by pointing me to a video or some other help, i will enter all your vouchers so you can get your little kickback and buy you a small diet coke.

    The flute music reminds me of Star Trek Voyager whenever Chakotay was getting in touch with his spirit guide, LOL!
