Step 9 - Create Your Website Content

Content is the reason why you want to have a website. There are many types of content ranging from text, images, videos, audio, etc. Whereas Layout is very important, it would be meaningless without good content. That’s why we say that ‘Content Is King!’

WordPress and the new tools such as front-end editors make it easy to publish content on your website. Here are a few WordPress Page Builders that we recommend.

WordPress is a rapidly growing Publisher as demonstrated by Google Trends statistics comparing keyword searches for Content Management Systems (CMs).

There are many things that you may need to take into consideration when creating your website content: avoid duplicate content, demonstrate your expertise to establish your authority in the subject matter and gain the trust of your audience.

Step 10 - Set Up Your Primary Domain Name

OnMax Host Digital - WordPress Website Guide - Set Up Domain Name

While you are developing your WordPress website, we provide you with a staging environment where you can make changes before going LIVE. We also provide a temporary domain.

When you have completed your design work, you can then set up your custom domain name as your primary domain. You can see the screen shot on the image to the left of what the Gateway looks like and where to attach your primary domain name.

Your primary domain name does not have to be hosted at OnMax Host Digital. It can be registered and hosted anywhere else, while your website is hosted here.

Step 11 - Activate Website Security

The Internet is a very dangerous place. You need website security. There are bad guys lurking night and day to break into websites and steal your visitors’ personal information. There is another enemy that you must be aware of: malware. And malware does not discriminate between small or personal blog and large enterprise-size websites.

Unless you protect your website, your investment is at greater risk. You therefore need both an SSL Certificate and Website Security. A valid SSL Certificate will show the ‘HTTPS’ in the address bar together with a padlock.

Internet users are increasingly aware of the need for security because they want to trust that their personal information is safe on your website. In addition to that, modern browsers are now flagging websites that do not have a valid SSL Certificate and notifying users that “This is website is not secure.”

Search engines have also now added Security as a ranking factor because it contributes to the ‘User Experience‘ on your website. Having adequate security on your website also protects your investment. Online attacks can bring down your website.

Website backup is another aspect of your website security. If your hosting server experiences a crash or some other problems, of if your website is infected, you can restore your latest backup to keep your business running.

You can learn more about our Website Security Services. If you need to discuss with our Security Experts, simply Live Chat with our Team or schedule a call back by clicking the orange button to the right of the screen.
