Almost 40% of all websites worldwide are WordPress websites. And rightly so! This simple and intuitive CMS (Content Management System) turns everyone into webmasters. Whether you have many years of experience in web design, or are just getting started with your first website, anyone can build a WordPress website. Do you want to use WordPress yourself? Find out below how to get started and what you need to consider.

Every website consists of a number of basic building blocks that you can develop further whenever you want. The first thing you need to do in order to build a website is to register your domain name and choose the right web hosting package.
Before you register a domain name, you should check whether the domain name you have chosen is still available. If it is no longer available, see if you can use an alternative domain name or use another extension (.be, .com, .info, .eu...) that is still available.
Choosing the right hosting plan is extremely important when it comes to creating your WordPress website. Because you obviously would not want to run out of space on your website to welcome your visitors. Combell offers various WordPress web hosting packages.
There is a vast choice of WordPress packages on the market. These packages allow you to register your domain name, choose a suitable hosting package and install your WordPress website in just a few clicks. Most of these packages come with a free domain name for the first year.
With Combell, you can choose between different WordPress web hosting packages.

Have you registered your domain name and found a suitable web hosting plan? Then, it is time to install your WordPress. Did you choose a complete WordPress web hosting package? In that case, you do not have to do anything yourself; the installation process will be taken care of for you. Do you want to install WordPress yourself? With Combell, you can do this with one simple click in the control panel. As soon as your website is activated, you can get started right away.
The choice of WordPress themes is almost endless. They come in all sizes, shapes and colours. WordPress offers both free and paid themes. But how do you choose the best theme?
Once you have installed your chosen WordPress theme, you can start building your WordPress website. Below are a few things you should definitely consider.
WordPress plugins are (small) pieces of code that you can install on your website to add extra functions to it. The WordPress directory has more than 40,000 plugins to choose from. Here is a list of the most important ones.
Be careful: avoid excessive use of plugins. Because that would negatively affect the loading time and performance of your website. Limit the number of plugins to a maximum of 20.
Are you satisfied with the result? Then, it is time to get your website online! But before enthusiastically clicking on the 'publish' button, it is of utmost importance that you have run all the necessary tests to make sure that your website is ready for launch. The most convenient way to do this is to use a separate testing environment. Such an environment is an exact copy of your live website, except that it is not visible to the outside world. It allows you to test new features on your site, without affecting your live environment. Our Managed WordPress packages include such a testing environment.
Have you tested all the features, clicked on all the links and reviewed the content on the testing environment? If so, you can transfer the changes to the live environment. Be sure to check your live website again after each change.
Keep in mind that a WordPress website is not 'finished' when it is online. Because you will need to update your entire WordPress website on a regular basis. And the same applies to the theme, the plugins and the entire WordPress environment. This way, you can be sure that your website will always meet the latest quality standards and that it will be better protected against security breaches. For hackers, not updating your website for a long time is like allowing a cat to play with birds.
Tip: If you choose Managed WordPress web hosting, our WordPress experts will take care of these updates for you!
Lastly, make sure that you constantly measure and optimise the performance of your website. Slow loading times have a negative impact on your findability in Google and on user experience. This article will help you understand how you can make your WordPress website faster.
Good luck and, more importantly, have fun building your WordPress website!
