From zero to hero page – first steps to create a simple website

Online Workshop

Getting your business online is not as hard as it may seem. For many businesses just starting out on a shoestring budget, using external suppliers to undertake this task is cost prohibitive.

With many tools offering free or low cost ways to get started online it's tempting to jump straight in to get your business online fast, but not all platforms can grow with your business.

In this session we'll walk through what to consider when choosing a domain name, registering the domain name, and setting up Cloudflare to improve website performance and security. We'll then look at the different "flavours" of Wordpress, from the low cost cloud based service at https://wordpress.com to a 'Managed Wordpress' solution, through to self-hosting the open source version of Wordpress (https://wordpress.org). Each of these solutions support different needs, with a different set of features depending on the needs of your business.

Wordpress is the most widely used content management system (CMS) on the web, powering around 36% of all online websites. From humble beginnings as a blogging tool, the Wordpress platform is now driven by a global community of passionate open-source advocates, ensuring the platform adapts to meet the needs of the current online environment.
