How To Set Up An Artist
Website Under 15 Minutes

Welcome to this 4-part course . We recommend that you turn off all notifications and distractions and take notes while watching the videos below. Putting into practice what you learn here will be well worth your time and attention.



The Website Hosting Company I use and Trust

I use the Bluehost as my host for the website.
In the video, I show how you can purchase your domain name and your host from the blue host and then I go into the installation of the WordPress blogging software.

After that, I then show you the basics of how to edit your own website. Get started today with your first website. I started my first site 3 years ago and have never looked back and I have skills that everyone that works online should know.


I recommend that you use a self hosted Wordpress.org website over the freemium websites like Wix, Blogger, Weebly or Wordpress.com. Site like these have large fees if you want to remove their restrictions later on. Plus the only give you an domain addon of their own website. So technically it's not your website, and it's not a good look for branding.

Follow the step by step guide I have set out for the very beginner. If you feel stuck please refer to the video walk through above where I go through I quick detail on how easy it is to start your own website.
