There are a number of guidebooks available on designed to teach beginners how to set up their own website (usually a WordPress site). Sadly, many of them do little more than give people instructions on signing up for web hosting (usually through a site affiliated with the author) and installing WordPress. At that point, would-be site owners may have the barest shell of a site in place, but they'll need another guidebook (or more) to make it appear and function like a typical website.Fortunately, in "How to Create a Website Using WordPress," Brian Patrick provides beginners with an actual comprehensive, easy-to understand guidebook that will actually explain most of the common features of WordPress and give them enough information to enable them to create a decent looking website with a reasonable amount of "bells and whistles." And, although it's geared toward absolute beginners, more experienced WordPress users should be able to get some valuable information from the book as well.Patrick begins with the basics, explaining domains and web hosting. However, he doesn't just jump into a sales pitch for one particular hosting service. Instead, he gives some pointers on how to choose an effective domain name (including explaining the difference between using an SEO optimized domain and a branded domain). He also gives readers advice on things to look for in choosing a hosting service and some free alternatives like WordPress.com instead of standard web hosting. Similarly, when explaining how to install WordPress, he doesn't just assume readers will have a web host that offers one-step installation; he also shows them how to download and install directly from WordPress' website.
