BoldGrid: Website Building Made Easy
September 7, 2016
So, you are looking to start your own website. Most likely, if you have gotten to the point of searching for a web hosting network, you know what you want to do with your site. Looking towards hosting, there are copious amounts of networks throwing themselves at you to host your website through their company. Typically, the hosting networks want you to take numerous steps to create your profile, choose your domain, and click through specific offers trying to get you to spend more of your money. Spending more money on things you don’t need is something you don’t need to do. We’re not all Zuckerburgs or Gates, however, online businesses provide a whole new world of opportunities to make money.
BoldGrid, the newest edition to InMotion Hosting’s award winning web hosting network, is one of the easiest ways to set up your own website. In fact, it will help you get your website up and running in only two short, easy steps.
Us geeks at Designrfix.com got to take full advantage of the BoldGrid template and let just say we were amazed! BoldGrid is installed on your WordPress site through one of two ways (through Amp or manually) and is super simple to start!
The two steps start with INSPIRATION. No matter what type of blog or website you run, BoldGrid will have a template theme for you to start with while designing your website. Using your “BoldGrid Coins” (purchasable online credits), you can buy premium images for your website, or always add your own to the online file. The second step in creating your blog through BoldGrid is CUSTOMIZATION. This is where you will start to upload your photos, widgets, removing/adding pages, and posting content to your site.
Why download BoldGrid and not any other web hosting platform? When you work with BoldGrid, it guarantees a more professional look to your site, easier set up with a “drag-and-drop” system while designing your blog, and the fastest loading capability you will ever come by while web designing. If your current blog isn’t managed through WordPress, BoldGrid also has the capability to help you migrate your blog with ease to WordPress, as well!
From this article so far, you may not think BoldGrid is so different from running your page regularly through WordPress. However, InMotion Hosting has a stellar reputation for customer service and upload speed, even winning awards for their amazing company faculty and staff. The Help Center is open 24/7, so no matter where you are in the world, or what time of day it is, a member of the InMotion Hosting/Bold Grid team will be willing and able to help you through your journey of creating your blog through their network.
Now, we want to give you the opportunity to take a look at how simple the BoldGrid download is for anyone and everyone!
When you first visit the InMotion Hosting Website Builder page, you are welcomed with this screen. Notice in the left hand bottom corner of the clip, that they have a chat box for any tech support of customer service questions that you may have at any time.
Next, select the plan that best matches your needs. Are you a beginner when it comes to online stores and business? LAUNCH is the plan for you. If you are a small business owner and already know a little about working a site, POWER is what you are looking for in a website hosting network. Lastly, if you are running a major business and need a high tech, dependable hosting network, check out PRO. All of these are guaranteed to give you your money’s worth, and don’t forget about the 90 Day Money Back Guarantee, no questions asked!
Next, you will install BoldGrid simply by clicking on the install button as it is located below.
After downloading BoldGrid, you will choose one of three options regarding whether or not you already have a domain, have a domain that is not set up with WordPress, or already have a domain through WordPress. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of domains, a simple definition would be the name within the URL of a website, like Facebook has www.facebook.com and DesignrFix has www.designrfix.com. So, if you’re just now getting started creating your website, the possibilities are endless! However, you can’t claim any domains that are already taken, so sadly enough, your site can’t be named www.google.com.
From here, you will be able to customize your website. On the left hand side bar, you will see options to CUSTOMIZE (paintbrush icon), where you will want to use the option of “active site”. Also, your INSPIRATION option is available on this sidebar, accompanied with a lightbulb icon.
From here on out, it is completely up to you what you want to do with your website. WordPress has great options for you when it comes to making your site unique, fun, and easy for your customers to view/use.
