Hey biz/ i am starting a website and could use some help.

I figured I'd go with a Wordpress since i have experience with it. Is there a better alternative ?

I don't plan on making money with the website for some time. Its mostly content oriented, there is no actual service provided. I am mostly counting on affiliation, which probably won't be for a few months or whatever time I need to (hopefully) get some decent traffic.

Is is worth going through a hosting company now ? If so which would be best ?

Any tips appreciated

Good to know thanks. Was going to buy a domain name through them (0,85 cts) yesterday but figured it could wait a bit.

I am OP btw, probably posting under another username right now.

Anyone has some insight regarding wordpress or other similar products ?

Wordpress is good. I make websites as a side hustle.
It is limited if you dont know any html css and php tho. I write a lot of code to personalize and modify themes so they dont look shit.

Same shit right here. Most WP themes are annoying, but you can tweak a lot with CSS. I don't even know much of the synthax myself but if I know what I have to edit, I can always ask the nerds @ cuck overflow or just google it.

Is it only you writing on the site?

If so it's cheaper to write Jinja template and generate static pages.

No server scripts just a webserver.

Need to be tech savvy but it's faster than any CMS and way cheaper.

How much do you charge for a wordpress site?
>>
>>1740879

I do not know anything about html/css. I am currently working on a wordpress website (not mine) so I post a bit of code when needed but its all given to me by IT.

I don't want something to complex desu, a few categories and a good overview of the articles is good enough for me as of now.

However, the website I am working on was already made when I arrived, I don't even know what to expect desu.

Anything you can recommand ? Any good guides for beginners ?

>>1740893

I will be alone yes, It's going to be my side project basically, for when I get back home from work.

I'll look up Jinja but I don't really care about the price desu (If I understood well wp would cost me around 4$ a month or something), quality of the website and easy use is the most important.

Also, I am planning on writing in two languages so static pages is probably not best.
>>
>>1741010
I don't know much about your project. Why wouldn't static be the best?

What's the purpose of your site.

You can run a Vps for a year with a webserver for $5 a year hosting static generated page.

I just looked it up on the internet and it seems that static pages don't allow for the content to change depending on the IP of visitors.

However, now that I think about it, I am mostly aiming for organic traffic, it's not really a problem if people get on the website through google search.

I am out of work so I am going to have a look. The website would basically be a collection of rather short articles with a few pics. Nothing crazy, I just need to be able to categorize it clearly and have a nice layout that's about imo (I am probably underestimating my needs though).

>>1740893

What do you mean by tech savyy btw ? I am willing to learn the basics but there is so much I can do all by myself working 40 hours a week.
>>
>>1741027

I don't want to say to much about the purpose but let's just say that it aims at helping/inform people.

I am more on the marketing/management side so I don't have much knowlege about the actual inner working of a website. I am not even sure I know what I want really.

I'd say I want some advice on how to create a website as a complete beginner and do it right the first time around. I don't mind paying a bit but I don't want to be overpaying either or worst, pay for crap I can't even use.
>>
Anyone here ?

I looked up Jinja and this is way beyond my capacities.

I am in the process of registering with bluehost and at this point they are trying to cross sell me tons of services. What is really useful ?

Domain privacy protection
Site Backup Pro
Search engine jumpstart
Sitelock security
Comodo PositiveSSL Bundle

That's what it's looking like for the moment

Google is my friend I guess :)
>>
I'm pretty doing the same. Started about 4 weeks ago. So far i've written around 25ish posts for my website.
No bullshit, just content articles with pictures, where I try to hit an unsaturated niche.

No organic traffic yet. It is a bit demotivating, but as far as I have understood, it takes around 4-5 months before google starts sending you any traffic, since the domain is completly new and Google has to "Trust" you. Don't know if that is some boogus.

When I get traffic, I can start to try and get some money from them.

>>1739943
fuck bluehost, go with siteground
>>
I had GoDaddy and it fucking sucked. I did the trial for azure and it was super easy and intuitive (I had everything set up in minutes), but my impression was it was getting expensive fast.

I recommend arvixe. I've been paying $8 a month for the last 3 months, but it does everything I need (ASP.NET WEB API with MS SQL database). their documentation is kind of outdated and getting through to India is annoying but it's working out now
>>
Anyone recommend where I can hire a WordPress coder to change somethings about the theme I bought?
