They are one of the best web hosting out there you will get a free domain, a free site builder, one click WordPress installer and 24/7 support. This is the overview of the tutorial Let’s start to build your website. We are going to use a theme called Sahifa. To use this go to Themeforest.net, I will leave a link below. This is the Sahifa theme. You can read about it then go to “buy now”, create an account and after that you go to your account name, go down to “downloads”. Choose “download”, click on “installable WordPress site only”.
Go to the folder where you have your downloads, right-click on the folder and click on “compress Sahifa” that makes us a Sahifa Zip-file. We need a Zip-file to upload the theme on WordPress. Go to your WordPress website. Click on “dashboard”, go down to “appereance” click on “themes”. Choose “add new”. Go to “choose file”, click on it. Choose the zip-file. Click on “install now”, click on “activate”. The new Sahifa theme is active.
