Among Joomla, Drupal and other CMS programs, WordPress is used by 26.4 percent of the top 10 million websites in the world as of April 2016. WordPress is also a free and open-source platform used by over 76.4 million websites.

I personally chose WordPress because of its ease of use and fast installation process thanks to softaculous. Softaculous is one of the plugins from cPanel that makes our website installation life easy.

This section talks more about how to install WordPress the smart and fastest way.

WordPress is a free platform, however to get the best out of WordPress, some plugins and themes have to be bought. We shall discuss more of the best themes, plugins and logo branding strategies in chapter 14.

CPanel’s fast approach to install WordPress even makes this job much easier.

There are two approaches to install WordPress, the first approach is to create a database with MySQL which is a database management system, and then download WordPress from their main website to your hosting folder before navigating to that page to install.

Knowing how to setup cPanel configurations for your website is one of the key leverages of a website builder. Understanding and familiarizing with cPanel makes anyone smart and fast during website implementations.

CPanel ecosystem spreads hundreds of web developers, thousands of hosting companies, and millions of domains all over the world. CPanel is not just a tool, it’s a software that empowers an industry.

This chapter discusses the best and smart steps to take as a beginner with cPanel like website email configuration and setting up SSL certificates.

Before we start configuring our cPanel, let us find the importance of using cPanel as a control panel.

CPanel is a Linux based control panel which uses graphical interface to manage and control website hosting functions and automate the processes of hosting managements. Its main function is to speed up administrative components of website structure.
Instead of using console which is very tedious and takes much effort to learn and use, cPanel maximizes productivity with it inbuilt programs.

009 - How to select the best market and keywords for your authority website

Choosing a great market for your website is one of the important process to gain real profits and make real money with your website.
The wrong market for your website will result in waste of time and resource.

This is why time, experience, knowledge, patience and extensive research is required to select the right market to create your website.

In the post, “Creativity (Building authority websites)”, we discussed the creative process cycle with talent awareness as the first step when selecting our market.

However, there is confusion with two approaches to the difficulty of selecting whether to use talent as a motivator to market selection or venture capital interest with ROI (return of interest) as a motivator to market selection.

To elaborate further, a person with a great talent on a particular subject or services may choose to launch authority website with this talent.

008 - Overview of Building Authority Website

In my other post, “introduction, the spider technique”, we deliberated on the spider technique, we discussed the purpose of the spider technique and showed how the spider uses the pheromone trick to build the authority spider model.

And how we can use Focus and Motivation to build a strong and will-powered personality. We also looked at the psychology of building authority websites in chapter 7. 

All that we learnt in the previous chapters was to prepare us and motivate us to build our authority website.

Now that we know the whole concept when building authority websites, the psychology behind it, the creative processes backed with motivation, we shall use all those energies we have acquired to build our website.
This chapter is an overview to the guide in building our website. We shall examine the required study guidelines.

We shall also look at how to select the best and suitable market with our talent. Then we shall take a look at how to brainstorm good and catchy domain names, whether expired domain names are still relevant, and also look at how to purchase the name and configure it.

If you are new to expired domains, don’t worry, I will hit it again.
Then we will also discuss some of the top domain name and hosting website companies. We will also go through all the guides and processes in content marketing and copywriting techniques.

007 - The Pheromone Marketing Trick

The aim of marketing is to know and understand the customer so well that the product or service fits him and sells itself. Peter Drucker, influential business thinker of the 20th century

This post describes a certain technique the biological spider uses to catch its prey. And this same technique can be mimicked to online marketing.

This technique works like magic if used extensively. I do my best to describe how to use this technique when creating websites and writing articles.

In the introduction post, we discussed about the spider tensile. According to Wikipedia, the spider tensile is described as the weapon of the spider which is strong as steel but light as feather.

It is described as having a natural elastic compound that can paralyze the spider’s victim with a single strike when in its territory.

I was thrilled when I learnt how the spider seduces victims with a cunning trick I ostensibly named; the pheromone trick.

We shall use the pheromone trick by adapting to it tactics and learn from this spider.

This will fascinate and charm our online visitors to our territory too. Territory here can be our website, or attracting them to the sales page of our product or services page. Every single authority figure has a pheromone trick.

It is the trick that mimics their victims, clients or followers to always be attracted to them like the pull of a magnet.

So what is this pheromone trick? The spider uses this technique to trick, influence and seduce other species to fall into its territory.
