This time I want to keep that page, and I don’t want to delete the sample sentence. I mean this one: “Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start writing!”
If you are new to the WP community probably you have no idea what I am talking about. This page will be created automatically with this sentence on the first setup. When you install your WP, you will see it.
First of all, I want to tell you why I am a real fan of WP. I tested the first version of it in 2004, and I still remember how I was surprised about the plugin architecture. So WP touches my life, and it always does. I am happy about that. I want to thanks Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little. Also, thanks to Happy Cog because they changed the admin panel UI of WP ten years ago. Maybe eleven years ago, I am not sure about that. Of course, thanks to all the people who supported this community.
Yes! Where were we? Choose a WP theme and buy a domain. Please do not waste your time. Do not overthink. Just do it today. Right now. Start searching for a WP theme. Start thinking about your domain name.
I bought this domain two days ago, and I decided to use this theme three days ago. Today my site is online, and I am writing this post. Thanks to WP and WP Engine.
Just a minute. I must explain why I choose WPengine. There are other alternatives for hosting, and WPengine is one of my favorite hosting companies. When I am selecting a hosting company, it depends on the project. WP Engine is a fast and reliable solution. When you sign up for a WP Engine plan, you receive the Genesis Framework and 36 StudioPress Themes free. So the StartBreakthrough.com project needs a WP Engine account. But I work with other companies also — for example, Kinsta, WPcart, and WWWS.
So let me try again. Buy a domain and find an unregistered domain name in an hour. Don’t think twice. If you are a manufacturer or a service provider and you do not have a web page yet, do what I say right away.
However, if you already have a web site but you don’t sell your products or services yet, please read this post: “How to Start Sellin with WooCommerce!”
