Step by step process guide on how to create an E-Commerce Website
Let’s get started it’s going to be very simple. We will follow 4 steps to create our e-commerce site. The first part is to launch your website. We use WordPress to get a new website live on the Internet. There are 3 steps in website launching.
The first step is to choose your website name. Go to the domain name finder of Godaddy or Namecheap or any other domain selling site. Enter the name you want for your website and check for its availability. If the domain name is available just go for it. If the domain name is not available you can make a slight change in your desired name.
After finalizing the domain name the next step is to get your hosting. Hosting is a place where files of your website are stored over the internet. You can also choose the hosting of the same domain provider or if you like hosting of some other company you can go for it.
After completing the process of purchasing the domain and hosting, attach your domain with hosting by entering the name servers of your hosting in the domain DNS. Then go to the software installer and install WordPress.
We will use WordPress to create our e-commerce website. By using WordPress you can create websites without coding or programming.
After installing WordPress your website will be live on the internet. To check your site just type the URL of your website in the chrome browser. You can see that we have a brand new website.
