Create your own functioning, beautiful website
You know you need a website for your small business or blog. It’s not going to survive without one.

The goal of this course is to get you a fully functioning website suited to your needs for the lowest price possible. However you will need to buy a few things.
You’ll need to register a domain name (the web address people use to find your site). You’ll get shown how to do this. Approx cost of AU$20 per year.
You’ll need to host your site on a server. The course shows you how to do this as well. Approx cost AU$200 per year.
You’ll need to download and install WordPress – the content management system that’s going to run your site. This is free to download and use.
You’ll need a theme to get your website looking spiffy. You can get free one’s however the one I recommend in the course is US$89 per year.
