In this video I am going to show you how to create your own website.

Creating your own website is actually a lot easier than most people think.

With todays technology, you can have a great looking, fully functioning website up and running in just minutes.

Even if you have never done anything like this before, by just following the simple steps I am about to show you, you will be up and running in no time.

the tutorial I am using is over at www.SimpleWebsiteTutorials.com so you can follow along with it if you like.

First of all you will need to choose a domain name for your website.

So head over to SimpleWebsiteTutorials.com and scroll down a little until you see the "Domain Name Availability Tool".

Then enter in your desired domain. and click "Search"

If the domain you entered is not available, try something else, you can add a word or two to make it unique, or use a .net or .org extension.

Now, You are not going to register the domain just yet, because In a minute I am going to show you how you can get your domain registration for free.

So once you have found an available domain name that you are happy with. Scroll down a little until you see the link to Green Geeks.

In this tutorial, you are going to use Green Geeks to host your website, they are one of the top web hosting companies around, and they are currently running a special offer that allows you to get a free domain for life when you sign up with them.

So click on the link to Green Geeks and you will be taken to their website where you will then click on the Sign Up Now button.

Next you will need to enter the domain you chose into the box on the left named "I need a domain"

So enter your domain in there and click Next.

then you will just need to enter your details & Payment information to setup your account and choose a Plan for your web hosting.

It's completely up to you which plan you use, but if you pay for 12 months or more, then you will get your domain registration for free. (which will save you about $10 a year)

So once you have chosen a plan you need to enter the Coupon Code: So if its not already in there, enter TODAYOFFER with no spaces to get the maximum discount off your order.

Then click Create My Account.

You will then receive an email from Green Geeks when you account has been setup, and you can just follow the link in that email to your Account Manager.

Login to your account Manager and you will see your domain name and a button that says cPanel Login, so click that cPanel Login button.

Next you simply scroll down until you see the "Fantastico De Luxe" icon, and click that, then click WordPress. We are going to use wordpress as a base to build our website on.

Then just click on the New Installation link and enter a username and password.

then click Install Wordpress.

Ok, your basic wordpress website is now setup and ready for you to customize it anyway you want.

Congratulations, you have just built a basic website.
