Now I help you deciding which of the offered Web Hosting Packages from Siteground you should choose. It really depends what the purpose of your Web Project will be. Start up will be most suitable for most of the small Website Project. Grow Big can be appropriate if you plan to create more than one Website on this hosting. GoGeek is only recommended if you really need more resources and you expect to have a lot of traffic right from the beginning.

After we installed the wonderful Zephyr Theme we now have a quick look at the default Appearance of our Wordpress Website.

The Default Look of our Website

The Visual Composer is a fantastic tool that speeds up the development of your Website. It is also fun to use because it comes with a ton of prebuilt interface components to include in our Page.

Getting to Know the Visual Composer Plugin

In this video we start building the first row of our homepage. We are going to add a beautiful image of a yacht that takes up the entire width of our Website.

Adding a Background Image to the Header

Now we finish the first row of the Homepage by adding an actionbox on top of the background image. An Actionbox is a great element that we can use to achieve an action like clicking a button from the user.

Adding the ActionBox and Title

In this video we enable the transparent header feature which just looks fantastic and modern on our Website. This is one of the best feature of the Zephyr Theme if you ask me.

In this course you will see how a modern and professional Website is built in Wordpress. I am convinced that learning is much more efficient if you learn from practical examples. This is why I won't bother with any boring encapsulated lessons. All you learn is part of the greater project Website.

From the very beginning to the completely finished Website I show you every single step.

There are 4 steps that you need to cover to bring your personal Website online:

  1. Getting quality and reliable Web Hosting
  2. Installing Wordpress on the Webspace
  3. Adding a fantastic Theme
  4. Making the Website

All these steps are covered in very detail in this course. There is no step skipped, you will see exactly where to click and what to do. So no need to worry about any confusion.

Creating Stunning Layouts

The Website that we build in this course is so appealing because the structure of the visual elements is "candy for the eye" :). With the amazing Page Builder Visual Composer there are barely limits to what you can do to your Wordpress Website.

A modern Website needs beautiful and large images that appeal to the visitors. Getting these image resources is usually very expensive, but I show you where you can get amazing images for your Web Projects for free.

No Coding Skills Required

We will not write a single line of HTML or CSS to build the great Project Website.
