In this post, we will learn how to make a Business Website Site with MH Corporate Basic Theme by MH Themes.
Theme Demo: Here
Step 1. Buy a Domain Name
Domain Name is address of Website. For example: nytimes.com, wikipedia.com, google.com, facebook.com. It includes: Name (nytimes, wikipedia, google, facebook) and extension (com, net, org, co.uk, com.au…)
You need to buy a Domain Name to make a Site (~15$/year). I recommend buying domain name at Namecheap. Good support, easy to configure.

Step 2. Buy WordPress Hosting
Hosting is used to store data (posts, images, videos,…). I recommended buy Hosting on Cloudways or Kinsta.
Cloudways has good support, powerful, dedicated IP, free SSL, Auto Daily Backup, 2-click WordPress Install and Host Unlimited Domains. BeaverHero host on Cloudways
Step 3. Point Domain Name to Your Hosting
If domain name is house number, hosting is land, website is house. Pointing the domain name is to add the number to the house to create the address.
Step 4. Install WordPress
