page website step by step from start to finish. I’ll be showing you how to access professional 
pre-made WordPress website templates to make   Creating your one page website an easy process. 
No matter what template you want to use I’ll   Be showing you how you can easily turn it into a 
single page website. I’ll also be going over how   To create your one page website using one of the 
most popular drag and drop editors Elementor page   Builder so you can build a professional looking 
one page WordPress website via drag and drop. The great thing about this single page 
website tutorial is it is extremely easy to   Follow along with even if you have no experience 
in starting and creating a one page website.   At the end of this video, you will have your 
WordPress one page website successfully created. The first step I'm going to cover is 
how to choose and register your own   Domain name for free. A domain name is 
the name of your website. For example,   The website name for youtube is Step 2 I'll be going over how to choose a hosting 
provider. An easy way to think of hosting is it's   Like the physical storefront of your website. 
To have a WordPress website, you have to have   Hosting. Step 3 is going over everything WordPress 
and creating your WordPress website using   Professional pre-made templates and building your 
site using the most popular drag-and-drop editor. Let's get started with the one page 
website tutorial for beginners video. The first thing you want to do to create your site 
is to click the link in the description below to   Be taken to Bluehost so you can take advantage 
of our exclusive Bluehost discount, where you   Will be getting a free domain name and up to 
73% off web hosting for your WordPress website.   Make sure you click the link in the 
description to get this great deal. A little disclosure. The link is an affiliate 
link, meaning I'll receive a commission from   Bluehost at no extra cost to you. Plus, 
you'll get an awesome Bluehost discount. A little about Bluehost. Bluehost powers over 
2 million websites worldwide and over 850,000   Blogs around the world. They are also 
recommended by since 2005.   Installing WordPress is a quick and 
easy process that makes creating a   WordPress website that much easier.
They provide 24/7 support via chat,   Email, and phone. And they have 
a 30-day money-back guarantee.   If, for any reason, you are unhappy, you can 
cancel and get a refund within the first 30 days. Once you click the link in the description 
below, you'll be on the Bluehost page.   Click the get started button. You'll now 
be on the Bluehost plans page. You'll see   Four different plans you can choose from. The 
Basic, Choice Plus, Online Store, and Pro Plan. You’ll see the Bluehost hosting 
terms you can choose from are 12  

And 36 months. You’ll get the $2.95 
pricing with the 12-month term. The Basic plan is a great plan if 
you are going to have just one site.   This plan comes with one 
website, and 10 GB SSD Storage. The Choice Plus plan allows unlimited websites and 
comes with 40 GB SSD Storage. The Choice Plus plan   Comes with free domain privacy, free automated 
backups for 1 year, and malware scanning.   Domain Privacy protects your personal information 
from the public and will show Bluehost’s default   Contact information instead of yours in the public 
whois database. The automated backup will backup   Your site daily and will allow you to restore 
your site to a previous backup with a click of   A button in case something happens to it like 
a website crash or an editing mistake. Malware   Scanning will scan your website for malware on 
your site and notify you if malware is found. The Online Store plan comes with 
unlimited websites, 100 GB SSD Storage,   And everything the Choice Plus plan comes with. 
This plan is good if you are going to have an   Online store as it comes with a bunch of extras 
like an exclusive store theme, store analytics,   And $450 worth of e-Commerce plugins for 
your online store like unlimited products,   Secure online payments, bookings and appointments, 
shipping labels, product search and filtering,   Gift cards, wishlist, and 
customer account creation. Something I want to note is you can 
have an e-Commerce site with the Basic,   Choice Plus, or Pro plan as well. You just won’t   Get the extra e-Commerce features the 
Bluehost online store plan provides. The Pro plan comes with unlimited websites,   100 GB SSD Storage, and features such 
as the domain privacy, daily backups,   And malware scanning. The Pro plan also includes 
a free dedicated IP and optimized CPU resources. With a dedicated IP instead of 
your site sharing the same IP   Address with others, you’ll have your own IP.
Optimized CPU resources is good for high-traffic   Sites or resource heavy sites. The Pro plan 
provides more speed and power for your site.   For most, the basic, choice plus, or online 
store plan is what you’d want to choose from.   You can always upgrade to the Pro plan as 
your site traffic grows to a high volume. I’m going to choose the 
Basic plan for this tutorial.   Once you decide on a plan to 
choose click the select button. You’ll now be on the domain page where you can 
choose your free domain name for your site.   You can type in and search available 
domains under the create a new domain.   If you already own a domain name you can enter 
it in where it says use a domain you own. If you can’t decide on a domain name you 
can click the create my domain later link   And you can choose your free domain name 
at a later date in the Bluehost dashboard.

Click next to proceed to the next step.   You’ll now be on the create your account page. 
You now want to input your account information. Next, is the package information section.   You’ll see domain registration free as well as 
the Let’s Encrypt SSL Certificate being free. Next, is the Bluehost package extras section.   What you see here can vary on the plan you 
chose as some plans come with some of these,   Or if you didn't choose a free domain 
name Domain Privacy won’t show. All of these Bluehost package extras 
are completely optional and up to you   Whether you want any of them or not. 
First is Domain Privacy + Protection.   I do recommend domain privacy + protection as 
it'll keep your personal information private so   That spammers and telemarketers won't have access 
to your personal information and contact you by   Phone and email with offers of their services. 
When you register a domain name no matter what   Company you choose the domain goes into the public 
whois database as domain names are regulated. If you select domain privacy + protection 
it'll show Bluehost’s default contact   Information instead of yours. Highly 
recommend domain privacy + protection. Next, is Site Backup also known as Codeguard 
Basic. This will backup your site daily and you   Can restore your site to a previous backup with 
a click of a button with their one-click restore. An example of where this package extra can 
be good is if your site gets hacked into or   You mess something up while creating it, 
or editing it you can restore it to the   Version right before whatever happened took 
place and everything will be back to normal. The next addon is Yoast SEO Premium. 
Yoast is the #1 WordPress plugin for SEO.   Something I want to note is Yoast SEO is a 
free plugin you can download in WordPress.   Yoast SEO Premium comes with additional features 
such as full access to Yoast SEO academy that   Helps you learn about SEO, 24/7 Premium 
support, it’ll save time and spot ranking   Opportunities with Yoast SEO workouts, prevent 
your visitors from ending up on dead links,   Content quality and link suggestions as you write 
your content, you can view your blog posts and   Pages as they would show on search engines and 
social media posts to help you optimize better. In my opinion, the Yoast SEO 
free version is all you need   As it is super helpful in guiding 
you to optimize your site for SEO. Next, you’ll see Single Domain SSL. 
Bluehost does come with a free SSL   Certificate for your site so this add-on 
isn't necessary unless you want to upgrade   To a Positive SSL Certificate which will 
allow you to show a site security badge   On your site if you'd like and with the 
positive SSL Certificate you'll have a   $10,000 limited guarantee warranty by 
Comodo which protects your customers.

Next, you will see Sitelock Security 
Essentials. This add-on checks your   Website daily for malware and protects your 
site from hackers and malicious attacks.   It will notify you if your site has been hacked 
into and malicious code has been placed into it.  Sitelock Essentials also 
removes malware automatically.   This add-on can be beneficial and 
give you peace of mind if your site   Were to get hacked into and malware is 
placed on it. It isn’t necessary though. The next add-on is Google 
Workspace Business Starter.   This package extra provides you with an email 
address ending in your domain name along with   Other features provided by Google workspace 
such as Gmail, calendar, chat, cloud storage   With drive, video conferencing with meet, and many 
more Google workspace features. I do want to note   That Bluehost does come with free email addresses 
ending in your domain name so this add-on isn't   Necessary unless you really want to utilize 
all the added features with Google workspace. Next, enter your payment information 
in and click the submit button.   Bluehost will now email you your Bluehost receipt. Next, enter your payment information in and click 
the submit button. Bluehost will now email you   Your Bluehost receipt. You are now directed to a
