This video tutorial lesson series parallels the first 5 lessons of our Start Building Your Website Here course. The original series uses BlueHost as a hosting company. This tutorial series uses InMotion Hosting to set up a website instead.  If you’ve chosen to host with InMotion Hosting please follow these 5 lessons and then pick up at Phase 2, lesson 6 of the Start Building Your Website Here course using either the Thesis 2 theme or Genesis 2 theme for WordPress.  The entire series consists of 70 self paced videos that take you step by step through each part of the process. You’ll need no prior knowledge of website building.  We only assume that you can use a web browser and a word processor.
