How To: Make a Personal Website
Personal website, your place for portfolio, etc. All these are sometimes required fields on the job application form.
You are building your personal website, your own website for absolutely of charge where no credit card is needed.
— Even tho I can make this my personal gig on Fiverr, and make money from it, I will share this SaaS (Service as a Sale) with you — I won’t I will share my 10-year experience and give you a free tutorial.
First of all, a disclaimer: I am not, nor this text has anything to do with technologies and/ or their vendors being used. Freehostia, freehostia.com, cPanel, afreedns.org, and others are not affiliated or connected with Medium.com or me.
— Also there is a uk.to domain, where you can add “yourdomain” subdomain where the .uk.to will be added.
The default route on the picture above shows the “A Record”, and #2 shows NamesServers (NS) DNS1, and DNS2 of freehostia.com (MUST!) as they ``hosted`` your website.
Once you have selected, i.e., http://whereandhow.my.to/ that will be your “A” DNS record. Now, it can confuse sometimes you where you need to edit DNS records, on the site where you got the subdomain from or Freehostia.
DNS: “A RECORD”
A — DNS record points to the IP address where your site, in this case, whereandhow.my.to is hosted (at the Freehostia, find “Default Route:” IP address and change it at the Step 1 website (FreeDNS).
DNS: “NS RECORD”
NS — DNS record point to the dns1.freehostia.com and/or (backup) dns2.freehostia.com in our case. DNS NS record is pointing to the NameServers usually dynamic nameservers. So that’s why they look like dns.example.com because the first letter “D” means — dynamic.
Add two NS records, with dns1 and dns2 for freehostia.com where you have HOSTED your website.
This is where you have finished with this website. Now, you can switch to Freehostia.com and your account. ( NOTE: PLEASE DON’T FORGET YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD WHEN REGISTERING, AND USE THE CHOCOLATE PLAN WHICH IS FREE)
Once done, in our case, it should look like this (A record is hidden — the IP address):
Once all is displayed like this, disregard the SSL (the lock pad icon) — you can go now to “Applications Installer”:
Entering the final phase:
After that, the final step:
There you are, you have just made a WordPress site, that someone takes 100$ or more for it, but with me and donating/supporting me — you will learn to do things where you can earn and do things remotely on-site or for yourself (like this example that makes all three in).
