learn how to create unique websites for your company – WAU
WordPress is one of the largest platforms in the world for creating websites and blogs. And, for yours to stand out, it is necessary that it is unique. The Websites Are Us University Advanced WordPress Course teaches you how to do this.
When doing Digital Marketing, professionals and companies need to stand out from the competition, this goes for both strategy and digital channels, with the website being the main one.
O WordPressis a very effective platform for creating professional websites and blogs, as they have themes and functions that bring you closer to what you really want.
But having the same themes, plugins and widgets as other sites in the same niche as yours does not make you unique. Also, what to do if you want a template that is 100% authentic? Or a theme developed based on conversions?
To resolve these points, the WAU University created the Advanced WordPress Course and we wrote this post so you can get to know him. Come on?
How to create WordPress site
First let’s see what it takes to create a website on WordPress.org using the steps we show you here.
Choose a domain for your site
The first step is to choose and register a domain for your website. You can do this through companies like GoDaddy to purchase a .com domain or Registro.br to purchase a .com.br domain. The price ranges from R $ 30 to R $ 60 per year.
It is recommended to choose a link that is easy for your audience to memorize, in addition to being consistent with the business niche.

Choose a host
After having purchased the domain, the next step is to choose the host, that is, the server on which your website will be hosted.
If your site is new and does not receive as many visits, you can start by hiring a shared server. However, as the number of visitors grows and the site needs more capacity, it is interesting to migrate to a dedicated hosting plan. Therefore, when hiring, take into account these types of accommodation.
Once you have your website’s domain and server, the next step is to install WordPress on your website.
To do this, simply go to WordPress.org and download the installation file in zip format. It must be inserted in the “public_html” folder inside the hosting’s file manager through cPanel or FTP.
So, when you enter “/ wp-admin” after your website URL, you should follow the on-screen instructions for installing WordPress. When the message “Success! WordPress is installed ”appears, it is a sign that the stage was successfully completed.
Choose theme, plugins and widgets
WordPress brings, by default, a white and unadorned template with the message “Hello, world”. Therefore, to give an identity to the site, it is necessary to choose a template that can be both paid and free.
Then, the site will also need plugins that give it the necessary functionality.
For example, let’s say you want social media sharing buttons on your website pages or lead generation contact form. Plugins can do this.
The widgets take care of the functions displayed on the website such as search bar, categories, calendar, among others. Within the WordPress dashboard you can choose which widgets you want.
