Everyone should have their own website. It’s something I’ve always stood by and in this video I’ll be going over everything you need to know about setting up a website from why create a personal website to how to pick a platform & domain and, finally, what to do with it once you have it.

Hey team, thanks for checking this video out 🙂 If you want my personal recommendation for website platforms, I'd 100% recommend Ghost. Been using it since 2016 for my own personal website. Here's a cheeky affiliate link – https://ghost.org/ali
“How to build a website”
Spends 10+ minutes talking about why you should have a website.
Hi Ali, I'm thinking to start a blog for a long time. It's not about anything serious, no business involved. I'm an absolute beginner in this field; plus, as a doctor doesn't have much time either. I just wanted to share my paintings and a few stuff that I like to write about. But I'm wondering how different is a website from a blog. I tried to google it, but it's still not clear. Thank you 🙂
I will restart blog websites again.
I love you, Ali!
i love your video
Wanna understand in a better clear way If he sounds Faster to you Try 0.75x ✌🏻
Thank you. Simple, straightforward. I liked that it's "I just had the idea to start a blog 3 seconds ago" to have something published in a week. With some general long-term goals to give direction past "just write/post." Google search was a lot to shift through when you don't know what you need to know. Glad I got this recommended to me today!
and before people say: stop watching than
I CANT MY TEACHER MAKES ME WATCH THIS
I'd like to take issue with the part where a Google domain is recommended and "just link it to the Ghost account." It was a helluva lot more involved than that. I'd also recommend NOT purchasing a Google domain. Go elsewhere.
Ugh. How about something for people who actually are looking to use their old computers to set up personal servers. WAMP is a thing these days.
You can iron your t-shirt before shooting the video
waste of time
This guy. Has an affiliate link. Tells viewers not to use it. Legend!
how do you feel about wix to start a website
Don't tell your parents
I will remember that
Herpes total cure thanksgiving to #DrMacaulay 👈 Channel for helping me cure my herpes🌿🍉🌿🍃
Its easy buy extremely expensive. 22,000 one time payment is 🙁
Would you also recommend cross-posting on Medium along with a website?
I was looking more for actually how to build a website. Great info.
really thought its about building website ….not bed story time
Are there any underground schools in the US? I’d like to learn this skill.
Do you hold the domain or simply hand it over and not do maintenance or whatever
Thank you so much ❤ it is very motivating and satisfying who wanted to start a website
Would you recommend having separate websites for personal blogging and professional services (freelance/business) or is it okay — or even better — to have it all on the same website?
I'm hoping this video will or has changed my life(I don't know how that makes sense lol). I've got a lot of plans at this point and I hope I can make good on them. Thanks Ali! Love the channel.
How do I do it. Is it possible to do with no money
I invest ⬆️⬆️ with is services online and it is 100% save and secure ✅
Doubts cleared 😁 thanks
Man how long does WordPress take to propagate??? im waiting already 6 hours
Does anyone know where is the video of Ali interviewing Ghost founder John O'Nolan or does anyone have the link? I tried to find it but no luck so far, thanks.
i know that these websites are probably better but i wanna know how to make websites from scratch, i don't know how to though.
Thnx for uploading wonderful info… I am following your ideas and approach……your content inspire me much more than i expect….🙂
such an insightful video! thank you <3
this guy is a lagend <3
Thanks a lottttttttt
I bought domain name from Google but cannot import to Ghost, please I need help
A very useful vid, thank you so much !
Very encouraging, thank you
Mann, I was lost this noon. About how to create a website, or to actually create one or not. Thanks for giving me a direction.
This is my second time viewing this video. Thanks once again Ali… I am at the point of wanting to set up my website and your advice and ideas are so valuable (I wasn’t ready first time round😊) 😘
I'm THIS many years old, and I feel like you just changed my outlook for reals! LOL
Thank you so much for your transparency and for being aware how daunting website creation may be. Shout out to your house mate! That helped a lot!
hey man really informative video thanks for everything but i just couldnt take of my eyes from those 3 posters behind you…i want them too can you tell me how can i get one ?
14 dollars a month is still a little steep, but I like the nice graphics design I can do for my site on SquareSpace.
Do you know any platforms that's cheaper, but still solid for giving your site solid presentation and organization, like SquareSpace?
Thank you so much, I'm definitely going to do this today.
too much talk
Great videos ❤️
You have been helping me a lot and I appreciate for all the love that you put into making your videos to help others create. Thank you🙏🏾✨❤️
What if i want to publish my comics on the site wich site you recomend?
