A moment but that costs so little less Than it costs to go and eat out now if You thought this video was free because It's on YouTube it's not it's going to Cost you a thumbs up on this video down Below so if you could pay that Hefty Cost right now then we'll go ahead and Get started so the first thing you got To do is get set up with a domain name And your web Hosting account your domain Name is just going to be the name of Your website you use one every time you Use the Internet it's what you type in In the search bar so like Google's Domain name is Facebook is or apples is Hosting is going to be a little bit Different your host is where you will Store all of the information that is on Your website so your text your images And all your files basically your Hosting is a computer that runs 24 7 That is there solely to hold all of the Information on your website your domain Is going to cost you about 15 a year and Your hosting can vary anywhere from Three dollars a month up to nine dollars A month but it really just depends on The plan that you choose so in total for Both you can expect to pay around forty Five dollars a year but I'll show you How you can get a huge discount to make It even cheaper in just a minute all Right so now that we know what they

Actually are let's get you set up with a Web Hosting account and a domain name And fortunately we can do both of these At the same place so all you have to do Is open up your browser and go to order New and this will bring you To hostinger we always recommend hosting Her because in our opinion they're the Most affordable hosting and what you get For the price is really Second To None On top of that you can get a free domain Name and their customer service is top Tier as well but you don't have to take Our word for it there are a ton of Reviews of a bunch of satisfied Customers that love it for the same Reasons that we do so when you visit Their site via order or The link in the description an exclusive Extra discount is going to be Automatically added so you can pay the Lowest price possible that is a referral Link so you get an exclusive discount And they know you came from the channel And it helps to support the channel as Well so if we scroll down here we can See all of the different plans that they Offer I always recommend the Premium Plan because of everything that it Provides at such an affordable price you Can read through the descriptions of all Of them if you want but what I'm looking For here is the free domain and the free Email and the reason I like that is

Because these are things that other Companies would charge you extra for but They come with this plan on hostinger Now if you're looking to make more than Maybe one to three websites I would go With the business plan once you get into The five or six website range the extra Features that you get are just a little Bit more beneficial but don't worry if You aren't sure just go with the premium You can always upgrade at a later time For our purposes today we're going to be Going with the Premium plan so we're Going to click add to cart and you will Be redirected to your checkout page so The first thing we're going to do is Choose a period of time that we want to Pay for you could do one one month 12 Months 24 months or 48 months now the More you pay for in advance the more Money you're going to save I choose 12 Months because the domain registration Is 12 months and I want my domain name And my hosting to renew at the same time It just helps me keep track of it then We're going to scroll down it'll prompt You to create an account or log in if You already have one and then it'll ask You to choose a payment method so as we Can see here we could see the original Price was 143.88 the domain was 9.99 the Setup was 4.99 but today for the whole Year we are paying 32.29 with the Discount and with the coupon code

Applied now this should automatically be Active if you come from our link but if Not just make sure you enter the coupon Code wpcrafter to get the additional Discount so I'm going to fill this out You fill it out and then I will see you On the next screen so here we are this Is going to ask us a couple questions to Create a more personalized experience We're going to hit start now and then I'm actually going to skip this so we Can get straight to create a new website So we're going to hit select We're going to select WordPress so this Is where you're going to create the Actual login for your website the Account that you just made was for your Hosting and that's where you'll manage Things like your billing but this is the Account that you'll actually use to log Into your website and make any changes So we're going to select a language Which for me is English the admin email And then I will make a password This is going to ask us about if we want To install any plugins don't worry I Will explain what those are later as Well so I'm going to skip that I don't Need a template we're going to skip that We will write our own content later so Remember earlier we talked about your Domain name this is the step where we Can do that this is the address that's Going to be pointed at your website so

If you have a domain name in mind you're Going to click select and you're going To type it in here and then once you do That you're going to click search and It'll tell you if it's available or not I also want to point this out if you Click this drop down arrow you can Choose but of those I Always so I'll type in a Domain that I know is taken so you can See it'll tell you the domain is already Taken try searching for some other Domain keep in mind that there are over A billion websites so your first choice May be taken but keep trying until you Find one that you like and that is Available so then what we'll do is Click Continue and then we'll be brought to a Page where you can add all of the Registration information for the domain Name so this is where you'll attach all Your personal or business information to The domain so that way they know if There's an issue with the domain or the Account they know who the owner is and They know how to contact them then once You enter all this information you're Going to hit finish registration so then You'll be brought here this is where you Can do a quick overview of your Information you can hit finish setup so This is just getting everything set up For us and once it's all said and done

Long ago this is what our website looked Like and now it looks like this fully Loaded with navigation all these Different pages every plugin you need And that's the beauty of starter Templates it gives you so much for Absolutely free it does all the heavy Lifting it's built the pages for you It's given you the design it gives you Such a strong starting point and now at This point really all we have left to do Is learn how to customize it So now realistically all we have left to Do is insert our own pictures videos and Text into the website to really make it Ours if you're viewing a page up here in The admin ribbon you can click edit with Elementor so once you're in the Elementor editor you might get a prompt That says to turn on containers this is A feature that enhances the layout Options within Elementor so you're going To find activate container you're going To click that link and you're going to Go right here where it says flexbox Container and where it says default You're going to drop down that menu Click active Scroll down and save your changes this Is going to be in your Elementor Settings under features and this is Something you're going to want to keep Your eye on these are things that often Add new features or enhancements to your

Website that can really take it to the Next level so while they may be in their Experimental phase it's still something That's worth keeping your eye on so now That we're done we're going to go back To our site and click edit with Elementor so here we are this is the Elementor editor something I want to Point out if these say section if you Click on it you will get a button right Over here that says convert and that'll Just take that section and convert it to A container but for now we're going to Close out of this Navigator so before we Start editing let's talk about Containers what is a container well Basically a container is just like a Section of your page that holds content So you can see this dotted line right Here that's a container everything in This is held in in this container that You can identify up here with these six Black dots and you can see all of these Rectangles within the container that Represent different widgets now what is A widget they can be anything from text To images or buttons or even complex Things like forms or galleries you see In Elementor on the left hand side here These are all of your widgets there are A ton of them to experiment and play Around with but these up here are Generally going to be the most important Specifically The Heading the image the

Text the button and the container up Here now the heading widget is typically Used to create titles or the headings For pages and posts so if we click this We can see that this is a heading over Here you'll see what kind of heading it Is there is H1 through H6 and those are Just organized by order of importance so Your H1 is going to be the most Important heading on the website and so On and so forth and like we mentioned Earlier there is the container widget Like I said this almost acts like the House that stores all of the other Widgets you can also customize its Layout in this menu so if I wanted Everything horizontal instead of Vertical I could do that If I went to style I could change the Background to a different image or just A solid color in here and then some more Advanced things like padding and margin If you don't know what padding and Margin are don't worry I will explain Those in just a minute then there is Also the button widget now this allows You to create interactive buttons on Your web page you can customize its text What it's linked off to and just like Everything else you can change its style In the style tab over here but these are Generally used for calls to action like Sign up learn more buy now usually Buttons are used to guide users towards

A specific action and you'll see this is Different from the H1 not just because Of its size but this is what you're Going to use to format all the other Text that's on your web page this will Be used for things like product Descriptions or about sections and just Like the heading over here you can Change what it says you could change the Style of it how you want it aligned you Can change the text color if you click This you can see all of the theme colors So that you're always choosing something That looks good on your website and you Have your advanced section again like I Said this is ideal for paragraph lists And other text content that isn't a Heading and if we scroll down here we Can see the image widget now this is What you're going to use to insert and Customize images on your web page you'll Choose your image right here by clicking Choose image and you can upload things To your media library or something cool That starter templates comes with is It's integrated with pixabay which is a Massive library of stock photos that you Can choose from to just download Directly to your website this is just Another one of those really cool ways That starter templates makes building Your website incredibly easy so if I Wanted to change that picture to this One I would click the download

And there it is I'm going to hit command Z to undo that but that's how you use The image widget same thing over here You could change the style of it you can Change the opacity which is how See-through the image is and then Advanced again you have your layout Options like your padding and your Margin and I guess now is as good a time As any to explain what padding and Margin is so exactly is padding and Margin so imagine your content is like a Picture frame padding is the matting That goes inside the frame creating Space between the picture which is your Content and the frame's edges which is Your container it adds breathing room to Make sure that the picture doesn't touch The frame directly on the other hand Margin is like the empty space on the Wall that surrounds the frame itself it Defines how much space there is between The frame or your container and other Objects nearby it helps give the design Balance and prevent it from feeling too Crowded so now that we have that Understanding if you wanted to create a New section on your website using Containers you would click this plus and Then choose whichever one of these fits Your needs so I'm going to choose this And then we're going to click this grid Up here to get back to our widget menu So let's say we wanted to put everything

In its own container in here let's do a Heading and then an image and then some Text so we can see all of this is Sitting nicely within this one container So if we wanted to make everything go Horizontal we could or vertical or Reversed but let's stick with vertical The text if I wanted to Center that I Would Center that here under alignment Let's choose the picture we recently Downloaded from pixabay and we can Center that as well and then we can make This text say whatever we want by Editing it here or over here and that's How easy it is editing with Elementor You just drag and drop whatever you need Drag it in drop it and you're good to go And like I said editing everything is Pretty much the same you have your Content your style and your advanced Settings or if you're in a container Your layout your style and your advanced Settings so we're going to delete this Because we don't need it and then always Make sure you click update to save your Chain changes now let's talk about this Menu down here so you have your Navigator this is just going to give you An overview of what your website looks Like what I like to do is bring it up Bring it over to the right and I keep it On the right hand side here so that I Always know where I am in the website And it also makes it easier to just

Navigate through so you'll see once you Drop it down you can click something It'll bring you right there so down here As well we also have history if you Click this this shows you all of your Editing history so this is going to keep Track of all of the edits that you have Made in this session so that way if you Make a bunch of edits say you're trying A bunch of different colors a bunch of Different fonts and you just need to get Back to where you were when you started You can scroll all the way down click Where you started and it'll bring you Back to where you were and undo all of The things you've changed you can also Preview your changes with this this just Shows you a live view of what it Currently looks like And then there is responsive mode so Responsive mode opens this little ribbon Up here and it'll show you what your web Page looks like across different devices So we can see all right this does not Look great on a tablet that's something We should fix or on mobile alright there Are things missing why is that grayed Out and I'll teach you how to fix this At the end once we have everything Designed but that's how you're going to Check to make sure that your design Looks great across all of the different Devices so now that we have that Understanding like I said really all we

Have left to do is insert our own Pictures videos and text and then this Website is our own so let's get into it So for this website I was thinking let's Just turn this into like a pet sitting Service so the first thing I'm going to Do is change the background by clicking These six dots and then I want to do a Slideshow so we're going to add images So we'll add this one and then in the Free images library from pixabay that I Mentioned earlier let's just search for Pets and I'm just going to grab a couple That I like and then for my gallery I'm Just going to select these three and Then down here click create new gallery Now here we can change the order that The pictures are going to show so let's Do the Corgi and then the cats and then Back to another dog insert gallery and I Want this on an infinite Loop so that Way it just plays over no matter what This is going to be the duration that Each one plays for so let's make that a Little shorter let's do three and a half Seconds I like the fade transition but There's different ones here you can play Around with We're going to go back up to fade you'll See here next to background size this Little desktop icon that means that what You're changing here is only going to Affect the desktop so if I go into Responsive mode and go to tablet or

Mobile they'll have a similar icon which Means you're only editing for that Viewpoint and then I want to turn on the Ken Burns effect now the Ken Burns is Just like a slight zoom in it just adds A little bit of movement to it I think It looks nice I'm going to go to the Background overlay and I'm just going to Make the opacity I'm just going to make it a little bit Darker so the text and the button pop Off a little more and then over here I'm Just going to change this copy now so I'm going to take this from we all love Nature and we'll just say I'll change this text let's say Um And then for all of this I want to Justify the content to the center and This is our new hero section and again All I did there was go into these six Dots into style and change this to a Slideshow I changed the copy here change The copy here and then I'm going to Change the button just to say book a Stay and then if I wanted to add a link I could add that link right here so now I'll scroll down and we'll say and I'll Change this to pet sitting setting Sitting grooming training something to Be aware of when you're editing sections Like this these images are all the same Size so just be aware of whatever images You put in here if they are different

Sizes it's going to look weird and it's Not going to look as clean as this so if You have any control over the aspect Ratio or the size of your images I would Definitely take that control to make This look as clean as possible so let's Change this image So see now again these are all the same Size images so this looks just fine and Scroll down here you'll start to notice Again it's all the same basic building Blocks this is a heading this is an H4 So it's a little smaller but it's bigger Than just a regular text this is an Image all of that is nested in a Container so if you wanted to take a Testimonial change the image you could Click it and then click choose image and You could replace it with this you could Change this testimonial so we'll just Change that to Thank you Jane I'm scrolling down this is an About Us Section so this is probably where it Would make sense to put a picture of you So you could choose your image And upload this picture of you you could Change the alignment of it if you wanted To with these buttons right over here if You go to style you can change the width Of the image which is more or less the Same as like changing the size of it you Have a find out more button which you Can link I would imagine to like again

An about or a Services page which you Could do right here you could change Your copy here and here and then this is The last container we have to edit and Then our home page is pretty much done So let's take this go to style and let's Just choose another image for the Background here let's do another type of Pet let's do a guinea pig hey look at This little guy that's a good little guy So his head's a little cut off here so What I'm going to do is change the Position to top Center and we'll see all Right now the whole pig is in frame but Now the bottom is cut off so let's try Center Center perfect now let's go back To the background overlay make that Darker so we're going to click this make It black and then change the OPAC Capacity now I want this text to be White so it pops off so we're going to Go to the text the style Tab and the Text color we're going to make white now You could do that either by using the Color Picker like I just did or you can Go to this little Globe icon which is Going to have all of the global colors Used across the website so I could Choose one of these as well I'm going to Do the same here so click go to style Click the theme colors find the white And there we go and I want to justify All the content again to the center and That is how you would edit this page to

Make it your own I mean that's really it I mean the bulk of learning how to do This is just learning the different Tools that you're going to be using in Elementors so if you were to take Everything you learned and just do those Changes across the whole website then Boom you have your own custom website Ready to go so the only things left we Really have to do now are change the Logo change the theme colors we'll go Over editing the header and the footer And then we have to make sure everything Looks good on tablet and mobile so for The next part we're actually going to be Getting out of Elementor and back into The theme customizer so we can change up The header of the footer the logo and The site icon so make sure you hit Update to save the changes to your Website and then we're going to go up to This menu and we're going to click exit So if we look at our website this is Going to be our header The very bottom is our footer This is our logo and this little icon Right here that's going to come up on Different tabs is going to be your site Icon so Elementor can edit pretty much Every part of your website except for These things so we're going to click This to get back to our dashboard we're Going to go over to the left hand side And look for appearance you're going to

Hover your mouse over it and then you're Going to click customize So this right here is where you're going To go to edit your header footer your Site logo your icon and your Global Colors as well so if we go up to Global And colors this is where we can change The color palette so see this yellow Right here and how it changes to like a Darker yellow when you hover if I click Color one And let's say I make that a nice light Blue And I click color two And I make that a slightly darker blue You'll see That it now changes and it'll be like That across the entire website so Anything that was using those colors is Now using these new colors so if I Wanted to make all the text just black I Could do that and you'll see again Everything that was that kind of Darker Green color is now black so we'll Publish that to save our work We'll go back We'll go back again and then to edit our Header we're going to click on the Header Builder now you'll see right down Here is like a drag and drop version of The menu that we have up here so this is Your primary menu this is the button and We'll see if I drag this like if I want To put that in the center it'll reflect
