In the next tutorial, we will start building our website step by step with no step. Skip. Thank you for watching. See you in the next tutorial. 4. Domain Name and Web Hosting: Hi. Now I will start this course by introducing the three main things we need in order to get a website online. The 1st 1 of these is called domain name. The 2nd 1 is called Web Hosting. The 3rd 1 is the theme we need to install and build our website. On first, let's start with the domain name. What is a domain name? A domain name is simply the name off your website that appears in the or L when people type it over here to get to your website. Now, as you can see here, the domain name consists of two parts. The first part you see over here, which is the personal or the business. Name off your website to you choose and the second part you see over here, which is the extension of your domain name. And in our case, it's a dot com extension, and there are tens off domain name extensions that are available and that you can pick from like dot net dot info dot me dot com over here, which is one of the most common ones and so on. And you can always pick a domain name for your website as long as that domain name is not reserved by anyone in the world. However, for example, if I have this specific domain name with this extension over here reserved, you can always pick and reserve the same website name you see over here, but with a different extension for example, a dot net or a doctor in full and so on. But for this specific domain name, you cannot pick this one here with this same extension because it's already reserved for me . Now, there is one more thing you need to consider when picking a domain A for your business or for yourself. If it's a personal website, make sure you make it look as professional and as simple as possible and not include lots of numbers like this or dashes and than numbers again, and then letters that don't make any sense. Make sure it's professional, simple and easy to memorize, And once you reserve this specific domain name, no one else in the world can reserve this same domain name. It will be unique and specifically reserved for you, and no one else can use it. Now this gets us through the second thing, we need for our website, which is Web hosting. So what is Web hosting? Well, simply what posting is the service? You need to store your website files so people around the world can access these piles by typing your domain name and the box Over here And in short, Web posting is provided by so many companies around the world whose mere business as to provide high quality Web hosting. Simply. The process of hosting your Web site in these companies is done by storing your websites files, which are connected to your domain name on high powered and large computers that are commonly known as Web servers, and the servers are available 24 7 for access. Besides, these Web servers are connected to the Internet, so people around the world can access your website through them. And this is for domain name and Web hosting. Now, in this tutorial, I will go over free and paid Web hosting. Now for this purpose, I have picked two off the top Web hosting providers in the world. One of them is considered one of the top and free close and providers, and the other is considered one of the top if not V top paid Web hosting provider. Now first, let's start with the free Web hosting provider. I will start by going to this tab over here and to this sample website that I have created on a free Web hosting provider called wicks dot com. Now there are three main reasons why I never recommend free Web hosting providers now. The first reason is that these free Web hosting providers are not search, engine friendly, and most, if not all websites built using free Web hosting providers are not indexed by search engines. And this is really, really important because if your website isn't indexed by search engines, you will be losing a lot off traffic and a lot of valuable customers. That's simply because people won't be able to find you on search engines like Google. And this brings us to the second point off why I do not recommend through Web hosting, which is the fact that free Web hosting providers do not give you a brand herbal domain name, and I want to emphasize a non rentable domain name. Now, in order to understand what a nun Brandel Domain name is, look over here at this extension off this website I have created. If you notice this website does not have its own unique domain name because after the website name is he over here? There is a dot wicks dot com, and it's not a dot com. It's never the same as a dot com. This is what we call a sub domain. It's not a full domain for you. It's a sub domain, meaning that it does not start with your business or personal name and end with the extension you see over here, there is always something in between, which is the free hosting providers name Wicks and also this part over here, which is called a sub directory that represents the website name. Now, once again, this one you see over here is not what we call an international domain name extension, like a dot com or a dot net and so on. It's a sub domain. You see over here, this is a sub domain and not a full domain that is uniquely reserved for you. And this is what you will find on all Web hosting providers that they do not provide you with your own domain name and unique extension. Their name will always be stuffed here in the middle. And this u R L you see over here is not easily remembered by your customers or even by you . It is hard to remember and does not look professional, and it will not help you build trust with your customers. If you have a domain name that looks something like this and guess what? Eventually, in order to build your professional, responsive and beautiful website, you will have to pay for these Web hosting providers, and you will have to pay a lot off money much more. Then you would regularly pay for a good Web hosting provider, and I will go over that in just a second. Because if you want to build a website that has enough storage, enough bandwidth, a good domain name over here and with no annoying and forced ads like the ones you see down here and up here now with these free Web hosting providers, in order to get these features, you will definitely need for your website with those free Web hosting providers to get the ads removed to get a decent domain name for yourself and enough storage bandwidth support and so on. You will have to upgrade for a premium account. Now let's go to a very premium accounts and see what they look like. Now, in order to be fair in this comparison, I will choose the top two packages those guys have, which is the one you see here, the unlimited and the commerce E C. Over here. Now, if you look at the monthly price of these two packed is over here. This one here is for about $16 a month, and this one over here is for about $20 a month. And if you look at what these provide, you will notice that the bandwidth and the storage are not unlimited in this package, which is very, very expensive. And also for this one here, even if it provides unlimited bandwidth, it still does not provide unlimited or what we call on a metered storage. Now let's go to the page or post a provider and see what they have to offer for us. Now, if you look at the most expensive and premium plan those guys have, that is the business plan. You will see it is for $13.56 a month. And if you look at the features they provide you with, there's a neater disk space, which is basically the storage they offer you. And as for the bandwidth, it's unlimited. And as for the domains allowed that you can host on this plan, there are unlimited and the list goes on all the way down here. And even if you look at these other two plans, you will see that they also provide you with a new meter disk space and a new metered band with also still, this one here provides you with unlimited allowed domains, which is the one I have personally purchased and that I will show you have to sign up for in the next tutorial. Now, one more advantage that these paid Web hosting companies provide over the free ones that those guys, they have their servers up and running 24 7 and it is guaranteed that your website will not be down for any reason because they have backup servers and your website is always hosted and won in. But as for this one here, it is definitely not guaranteed with free Web hosting providers to have your website up and running 24 7 because most off the free What posting providers don't have their own servers to host your website on most of them and not necessarily this one. Here they rent servers in other countries that are not maintained by them personally, and that may go down a lot. But with hosting providers like those guys, you guarantee that your website is always up and running, and it's always backed up on their servers. And as for this Web hosting provider, which is called host gator dot com, those guys were awarded the top 24 73 65 customer support among all Web hosting providers in the world. And the offer. So many other features, like 45 Day Money, Back Guarantee and so on. Like you see all the way down here. And I personally, after doing a lot of research and trying out so many Web hosting providers, I have came across this one here and found out that host gator dot com is the top Web hosting provider for me so far, and this is what I recommend for you as well. And like I said before in the next tutorial, I will walk you through the sign up process for this website. The sign up process to get a domain name and hosting for your website. Now. Thank you for watching. See you in the next tutorial. 5. Signing Up for Domain Name & Web Hosting: high. Now that we have explained what we mean by Web hosting and domain name, it's time to sign up for a hosting plan as well as a domain name. Now we're going to sign up for hosting and domain name on this website. Right here it is called host gator dot com h o S t g a t o r dot com Now, from now on, in this course, any website we visit any your l we type right here is going to be available in the resource is section off VI tutorial and simply you can go to the resource is section and just click the link and it'll get you to this website right here. Now it's time to begin the sign up process. First, go over here to Web hosting. Click it now, scroll down a little bit and you can see that we have these three plans available to choose from now. Personally, I have picked this plan right here. Now, as for the business plan, we don't need a business plan. We either need this one here or this one right here. Now, the fundamental difference between these two plans the hatchling and the baby plan is that this plan right here provides you with unlimited number of domains to host. While this one here the hatchling provides you with a single domain meaning that you can Onley host one and Onley one website on this hosting plan. Whereas if you go right here, you can host as many domain names as you want, either for you or for your customers that you build websites. For now, if you click right here, you see that you have a variety of options that you can choose from now. Personally, I have picked the one year subscription. But for the purpose of this tutorial, since I will be giving you a discount coupon and to make it more clear how much discount this coupon gives you, I'm just gonna pick the monthly right here and then I'm gonna click Sign up now. Now, Like I said before, I personally suggest that you have a one year subscription because the discount coupon I'm going to give you gives you 25% discount and you will get a better deal on the year subscription. Now, when you get to this page right here, the first thing you want to do as type in the domain name you want for your business right here. Now, you can always choose to add in the www before your domain name and type in the dot and then add in your domain name, for example, I'm on Add Malik a multi and Montagne, or you can choose to delete the www like I did with my domain Me. Now, if you click right here, you see that this particular domain name is not available because I have already purchased and reserved this domain name. However, you can see that the other domain names with different extensions are available and you can pick from. And if you go over here, you can pick the domain name extension that you want for your website. And if you notice each extension has its own price. Now, in order to make the sign up work, I'm just gonna enter one, 23 after my name and then click right here. And I won't really purchase this domain name because I have already purchased mine. I'm just using this Malik Montagne 123 to show you how to sign up for this web hosting plan . Now we scroll down a little bit and you see it down here. Ad domain privacy protection for this particular website. I'm on and check this one here because it adds $9.95 to your bill. And we don't really need this for now. Now we scroll down a little bit and you confirm the plan you've picked and the subscription period, which is one month in our case, and you see that it has automatically giving you 20% discount. However, I will give you a coupon that will get you 25% discount my personal coupon. Now, over here, you need the enter your user name. I'm gonna end her M a l i k. Malik.

Now that we have finished building our beautiful and stunning website with all four pages, it's time to optimize our website in terms off security performance and search engine optimization. In this tutorial, we are going to be discussing website performance and security. I will show you how to make your website more secure and to have a little bit more performance in terms off page loading. First of all, we will start with website security, so we're gonna installed three main plug ins that will help improve our website security. First, we will go to our dashboard and install each one of these three plug ins, and I will show you what each and everyone does through your website. First, let's gardar dashboard. Now go through the plug ins over here and click on installed plug ins first. Now, over here, you see this aqueous mitt plug in that we have left the activated before This plug in is a really good plug in for anti spamming in track back. Like I said in the first lecture off blooding this website and installed in plug ins, this plug in automatically filters all of the unwanted and weird comments on your posts. So once you activate it, you don't have to worry about anything. Now, in order to activate this plug in, we first click on Activate over here. Now you see this thin banner over here? Pop up, you click on Activate your or Kismet account. Now you click. Get your A p I he Now, over here, you click on get an aqueous mitt A p I key. Now, once you get to this part, you enter your email address, a user name and a password in vain usually sign up down here. After that, you get an A P I key, which is just a code that you need to activate this plug in. It stands for application programming interface. And once you get that coat, you go back to our dashboard and down here, you enter the code and click. Use this key over here and the plugging gets automatically activated and it automatically filters your comments. And you don't have to do anything after that. No, the next security plug in we're gonna install is called I themes Security. We go to plug ins over here and click on add new now in the search box over here, you enter. I themes security and have enter. Make sure you spell it right now we get to this part over here. This is the plug and we want. So we click. Install now and then click. Activate plug in. Now you get to this part you don't need these banners over his sword is gonna click on the X is here and here. Now, if you notice down here, there is security. You click on dashboard. And when you get to this part over here, this box pops up. The only things you need to pick from V's is the 1st 1 here, which is make a backup to make a backup of your website. Now, the next thing we're going to do is click on this one here, which basically means that this plug and make sure that it does not conflict with other plug ins as well as the installed themes. So just click one click secure. Now click on the X over here, and once we scroll down, you can see that these are the flags that this plug in is showing about our system. Now, if you notice there is something called priority. Here we have medium priority. We have low priority and we have completed tasks over here. Now, the only thing you need to worry about as high priority over here this part over here shows us the security holes that are in our website that needs to be handled. So this is the only one we're gonna worry about. So once you see a flag over here, you simply go over here and click. Fix it. Now, when you get down here, you see this part over here. Just check this box and click. Save all changes. Now, once we get to this part right here, it means that we are done with fixing that error. And we are good to go. The rest off the security issues, the immediate priorities and the low priorities. We don't need to worry about the V's like I told you before and make sure you check this dashboard down here regularly and check for high priority alerts and fix them. Now let's go ahead and install the third and last security plug in for this website. Let's hover over here and click. Add new. Now we go to this search box and type in limit law again attempts. Now this is the plug in we want right here. And if you notice down here, there are over one million active installs, and this plug in is very popular because it really helps your website security in terms off locking out the user when he or she tries to access the website dashboard for more than a certain amount off attempts. And it helps protect your website against hackers. And so many cracking programs now click. Install now and like activate plug in Now, in order to added the settings for this, plug in and see what it does cover over settings down here and down here all the way. Click limit, log in attempts. And when you get to this part right here, you see that the lockouts and the restrictions and everything you need to know about this plug in is right here. Let's go through them one by one. The 1st 1 here shows the number of lockouts that have been detected on your dashboard. Whether you try to enter your password incorrectly for more than four times or whatever number you said here or anyone else now down here. They lock out here, you specify the number of allowed tries before the system blocks the user from logging. And now I'm gonna set it to three because I believe three is best in this case. And in terms of the lockout time, I'm on enter 60 minutes and down here, I'm on Enter five. Now, this basically means that once the user re tries to enter the password for five times, it locks him or her out for 24 hours off the system instead of 60 minutes. Now, this is the number of hours until the next reset is done. Don't worry about this. Just leave it to 12. Now, we're gonna leave these two to default because I believe they're good. Now down here, I believe this is the most important feature off this plug in. What this does is that it's since you an email off the log in I p that tried to log in to your dashboard after a certain number of lockouts. Let's check this box right here. This helps you keep track of the I P addresses off people who keep trying to crack your credentials and hack your website and it allows you to take further measures like blacklisting this I p address or block in it. And for any reason, a certain I p address kept trying to hack your website and you got an email about that I p address. Please let me know in the comments section, and I will help you resolve this issue within the same day. Now, once you're done with the editing off this part right here, we click change options and now we go to the performance part off this tutorial cover over plug ins over here and click Add new. Now we are going to install a plug in called W three total cash. This plug in helps us improve the performance of our website in terms of page loading, meaning that it helps our pages load faster. And giving the users over website a much better experience and performance is really an important issue to consider, because statistics show that the websites that give the best user experience usually load in about 2 to 3 seconds, anything after that becomes boring and users will start leaving your website and you will start losing traffic on your website and losing valuable customers. Now let's install this plug in first type in W three space. Total cash. Make sure you spell it right. Then hat enter. And this is the plug in. We want to instal right here.
