Σ Sigma Hosting is mainly a video tutorial website

Σ Sigma Hosting is mainly a video tutorial website that make it easier for you to search within the transcript of videos for solutions of problems you might face during your journey in dealing with different webhosting companies. So, we are very sorry if the text is not well organized and we may work on it in the future but for now we hope you get the benefit mainly from the video then you may need to have a look on the transcript. Thanks for your understanding 🙂

today I'm going to start you off and creating your own website using Wix Wix is what I have used to create the Urban Rhino site as a teacher I've also used it to create a couple of other sites for our food pantry that I run and I'm the prom coordinator so I've made a prom website I've also made multiple other web sites for friends and family members so I'm gonna walk you through the steps of basically setting up a web site just the the very start is what we're gonna get into logging in how you're gonna choose your template on Wix and then we will go from there in the next video so once you go to Wix calm and you're gonna see you know once you actually have your login information created you would normally just click on sign in and it will automatically take you to that sometimes it will keep you automatically signed in if you choose that option so right now I'm gonna hit get started this is where I would click on this new to WIC signup obviously by default and you'll see my email and information here that is for my Urban Rhino blog that that would take me to those web sites that I would edit so new to Wix so if you are a student of mine this is where you're going to click or if you are just an urban runner viewer of this video and you want to check this out and get started go right here so new to Wix sign up you're going to enter your email address here and type your email password type your password again and hit sign up because I already have an account created I am going to just login so once you do all that those steps like I said from now on you're gonna go to the login part so I'm gonna do that and I'm gonna hit login I'm not to robot sometimes this will pop up this is kind of a newer thing it's pretty annoying but it wants to make sure that you're not trying to log into someone else's account and sometimes it does it once sometimes it'll do it three times so you just have to verify this all right so good job I'm not a robot hit login and you're going to see some websites here so this is my Urban Rhino one obviously you should have seen that before Bulldog pantry which is the our school corporations pantry that I said that I am in the coordinator for our prom website there I am the president of our my daughter's PTO so there's our PTO was I I just combined them all into one email address it was a lot easier to have everything all here together there's another one here a website that you'll see some later tutorials I'm starting to create a website for my sister and so you will see some of those so for this particular tutorial from here what you're gonna want to do is create your template so you're going to go to explore I'm sorry you want to go to create new site right here so once you click on that you can pick on what kind of website do you want to create and if you have something specific in mind like you know for sure that you are going to be selling a product you might want to start by looking through the online store one if you know that you're going to have a blog for sure you can start there however all of these I had to pause it there first again so if you're doing a blog you could start there and then any of these though you can add the store part to or the blog there are a million other apps you can add to these websites as well so for my students what we're gonna do is we will start with and let's go to blog we're gonna hit choose a template and there is one on here that I'm going to have all my students use and I'm going to provide the link for you guys but for the rest of you who aren't my students let me scroll through these a little bit so you can just kind of get an idea of how different all of these templates look and they can all be customized so just because you're choosing one of these doesn't mean that's exactly the way it's going to look so you can change the color scheme you can upload different pictures you can upload your own pictures or Wix provides pictures as well but let me find the website I think the one that I chose is actually under arts so let me get that so under creative and I believe it was portfolios let's try this one so you can see all the different ones and if you click on this one right here this is the one that we're gonna be using if you go to view so usually when I create a new website I'll go through and look at all the different ones that I like and I will hit view and I'll let that one pop up and then I might go back and look for some more and hit view again and then that way it opens a new tab with the three or four top ones that I like and then I'll kind of look through those and really narrow it down to the one that I want to use so now that I've chosen the website that I want to use so for my students in my jewelry and glass classes that will be creating their own websites starting this year this is the website that you will be using and worry we are all using the same one so that my tutorials will make a lot more sense that way they look the same for all of you so if you go to inter site maybe it's going slow here you'll see what this website is going to look like so again for my students they will be changing this out so it has their name there they can have it's a jewelry designer jewelry and glass designer whatever they want it to say there they're gonna feature some of their pieces that they'll make them claps here and if you're an artist or a graphic designer or whatever and you wanted to use something like this this would be where you would you know pick out your best pieces to feature on that first page so there's a portfolio there is a client showcase which my students are actually gonna take that tab out and about which is like a bio page a contact page here and then you know if they wanted to be able to book book appointments or whatever online they have that option so if you are a hair stylist or you run some kind of business where you would need to take appointments you can do that like I said if you wanted to sell product so you know for instance my students that they wanted to sell their jewelry pieces down the line they could actually create a store and I will show you in a later tutorial how you can do that and so from here the last thing I want to show you is just basically clicking this site like this is the one that you want to choose and how to save it so click Edit this site that will automatically add that website now to that dashboard of website so your dashboard when you first logged in like I said looks like this so now you can see that website is on here added to all the other ones that I have right now it's unnamed and it doesn't have a domain name so the domain name is for instance on my Urban Rhino one is WWF in Rhino Columbus com so that's something you can purchase if you want a more official one and Wix like for my students you guys will have just a generic it'll probably say Wix comm backslash and your name that will be your website name any of you that wanted to pay to upgrade to have a more professional site you can do that at a later point so this is kind of the interface of the Wix website so you can get started you can watch those videos if you want just click off and this is what it looks like so I'm going to get into more of the specifics of how to actually build your website and how to edit this template in a later tutorial the last thing I want to show you is how to save it so if you click save up here the very first time you do it it's going to ask you to name it so if you are student of mine you're gonna do your first and last name if you are not a student of mine you can name it whatever you want and so for the sake of my students I'll just put my name and so it would look just like this now mine says Urban Rhino because I have a an upgraded website so yours won't say that but just know that this is gonna be the title of your site right here save and continue okay and then what will eventually happen is at some point I'm going to ask you guys to publish your site and what that does is that makes it officially live so that will make it to where someone you can tell them what your website you know go to this web address and they will be able to pull up your website but for my students until we get it further along and more added to your website we won't publish it but you will just continue to save it so just hit done so right now this site is unpublished so you can't type it into an address bar and find it however it's saved so when I come back the next time all my work that I would have done would still be saved okay thanks for watching in the next tutorial I'm going to get more into how to stinks for watching this video make sure you stay connected with urban Rhino on social media and
