Building a Website in 5 Minutes
We don’t mess around when it comes to hosting and constructing websites, even though we like a good laugh. For many years, creating a website was considered a luxury that few people could afford. The amount of technical knowledge, programming skill, time, and effort required to design a website from the ground up made it practically impossible for those who were not developers to even consider doing so.
It’s difficulties like this that motivate us to get out of bed in the morning. A few months ago, the Hostinger team had the bright idea of creating an onboarding system that would walk customers with no prior development or design experience through the building of a fully working, beautifully designed website in under 5 minutes. Let us emphasize that because it is as outrageously ambitious and insane as it sounds. We intended to equip people with an onboarding system that could provide them with a website of their dreams in under 5 minutes by following a series of basic and easy procedures. Madness, madness, madness, madness, madness, lunacy, madness,
Hostinger’s onboarding process is amazing.
“They’ve managed to transform everything that’s bad about website development into a pleasant onboarding experience. I was ready to publish my website before I knew it. This simple procedure would not be feasible without their fantastic user interface, which they have clearly tried and tested to provide a positive user experience.” Daren Low — Founder of Bitcatcha — Check Your Website Performance (Response & Loading Time).
There’s Method to Our Madness
Innovation, progress, and breakthroughs all stem from big ideas that were thought to be crazy at first. Why did we have the audacity to think we could pull this off?
How can you even begin such a massive undertaking? By paying attention to the people for whom websites are designed. Frequently, technological businesses become engrossed in their own worlds, losing sight of the customer’s desire for simplicity. Our everyday encounters with tens of thousands of customers provide a wealth of information and data. Our customer service staff was able to acquire significant information about the user journey, including their requirements, desires, anxieties, and concerns, essentially providing us with the blueprint for what we needed to accomplish.
People were looking for a process that is self-explanatory, easy to understand, and stays away from technical lingo. A process that’s quick, simple, inclusive, and playful. We listened, we rolled up our sleeves, and got down to business…
First and foremost, there’s the content management system to consider. This is the part of a website that only you, the administrator, will be able to see. It’s the control panel, often known as the dashboard, where you may administer your website. Which one do you think you should pick? We provide a list of over 100 content management systems to select from, including WordPress, which is the most popular CMS on the market (for good reason). If you choose WordPress, keep in mind that our servers are equipped with the most up-to-date LiteSpeed technology, which allows WordPress websites to load 4X faster than the industry average.
The concept was straightforward. We’ll leave the design to the professionals, and you’ll get to pick and choose what you want and add the finishing touches. Our team collaborated with Brainstorm Force, the firm behind the Astra Theme, to bring you more than 50 beautiful website designs. You may then utilise the Elementor drag and drop page builder to give the website a more personal touch after you’ve chosen one you like.
Registering a domain name used to be one of those tiresome, mundane, and time-consuming activities that put people off from getting active in the development of their website. We’ve managed to simplify it to the point where you won’t even notice you’re doing it. The registration of a domain name is just another step in our onboarding process. Using an existing domain name that you currently hold with us or elsewhere, or purchasing a new one, it’s all doable with just a few clicks.
You get a migraine just hearing the term “website migration.” It appears to be difficult, time-consuming, and convoluted. It used to be like that, to be honest. The good news is that this isn’t the case anymore. You can choose whether to migrate your website yourself or have one of our expert developers execute the work for you in a dedicated stage of our onboarding sequence.
It’s always difficult to start over. The re-design of our onboarding sequence was built with that goal in mind: to make your first steps with Hostinger as simple as possible. Your onboarding process was designed to make your life easier and your web hosting experience more enjoyable.
