How to Make a Website with Own Domain


Website is useful to show our existence on the Virtual World. The Internet. We could show people who we are, our thoughts, our products, etc. It’s good if you have business, a politician, a preacher, and many other.

Making a website is quite easy usually. But if it’s our first time, we should learn what we should do step by step. First, we should choose an available Domain Name such as Then you have to register the domain and also get a web hosting for that. DreamHost is good. But you have to pay it via credit card such as Visa or Mastercard. I used Arvixe because I could pay it via Paypal.

You should get domain and web hosting in the same place. Otherwise, you should point the name server in the domain dashboard to your web hosting places. You should fill in the name server and IP address.

Then you should choose the Content Management System (CMS) such as WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal. I use WordPress and download it from With control panel or FTP software client such as Filezilla, I extract it into root/wordpress directory so the file and folder looks clean and neat.

To map the index file to the wordpress directory, you should change the Settings>General in wordpress from

WordPress Address (URL):


WordPress Address (URL):

You should copy .htaccess and index.php in root/wordpress to the root directory

You should change index.php line code from:

require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . ‘/wp-blog-header.php’ );


require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . ‘/wordpress/wp-blog-header.php’ );

While .htaccess should have code like this:

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress

I change the Permalink Setting into:

Day and Name

It’s to increase the SEO.

I add plugin Jetpack and Akismet and turn the sharing option. Don’t forget to activate the sharing and set all the sharing option on.

I also get plugin Recent Posts Widget Extended to get a better Recent Posts with thumbnail by using our widget. I put Popular Post and Categories on my widgets.

I choose Atahualpa Theme. Be careful of using Free Themes because some of them are inserting ads code that bring your visitor to XXX Porn Side and you could loose Google Adsense for that.

You should setup the sidebar, widget, and also the header image.

After that, you could start writing pages and postings.

These are the websites I already made:
