Using WordPress For Your New Dating Website

With the right niche your new dating website can become very popular and generate an extra income for you. Getting started can be a bit of a challenge if you have never built a website before.

Have no fear. On this page I'll be sharing some amazing WordPress Templates that will make starting your own online dating website easier.

The templates that I'll be showing here all work on a shared self-hosted account for Wordpress. This means that you will need to do the following:

  1. Purchase your own .com domain name through a company like BlueHost
  2. Set up your hosting account
  3. Install WordPress on that hosting account
  4. Install one of the templates that I'll go over here in this article

Once you follow these steps you will have a basic Wordpress Dating Website site and ready to customize and start your online dating business.

If you are new to WordPress you may want to learn a bit more about this very powerful platform before deciding to use it to build your dating website community. (Google Wordpress to learn about the system and it's capabilities)

For those of you that are familiar with WordPress you probably know that WordPress is pretty popular, for 1 in 4 websites around the web use it to manage and maintain their content. This means there is tons of resources out there to help you learn about WordPress and get comfortable using it.

One of the best things about WordPress is that it's 100% Free and it's included and free to install in as little as 2 minutes on most major website hosting companies.

I choose blue host because they offer the infamous 2 minute WordPress install on your domain included when you setup your hosting account. You can register your domain and setup your hosting account instantly and be online in about 5 minutes.

  1. Blue Host (Quick 1 minute WordPress installations Free!) $3.50 per month

One you've selected a hosting company you can quickly install your WordPress site using installation service.

If you choose bluehost you can install wordpress on your own, or contact their support team to walk you through installing Wordpress.

WordPress Dating Site Software Templates

After you have your WordPress software installed you can setup your dating site quickly with these all-inclusive WordPress Dating Site Themes.

All of the themes that I've outlined below are full dating software solutions based 100% in WordPress.

They include robust features like:

  1. Customizable profiles and
  2. Custom fields,
  3. Billing and recurring payments,
  4. Member videos
  5. Flirting Features
  6. Online Chat
  7. Member Blogs
  8. Forums

Quick Overview

Before you start checking out the themes let's review the 3 steps to setting up your dating website on WordPress.

  1. Purchase your hosting account (Bluehost or Hostgator)
  2. Install Wordpress (you can do this or your hosting company)
  3. Install your specific dating website theme that you have purchased

Keep In Mind --

Wordpress alone is just your foundation or framework; it won't function as a full dating website system until you purchase and install the theme you want to use.

Choosing a theme can be a little difficult. You want to make sure you take a good look at all of the features that's included. Think about your future members and what type of options you want them to have access too.

Also keep in mind that WordPress is a great place to start but you should always be thinking ahead about how you want your site to grow with your members.

Once your site is up make sure you check out my other Hub (How To Start Your Own Dating Website Business) with tips on marketing and promoting your new WordPress Dating Website.

Once You Choose The Theme

Once you choose the theme it's time to install it. The themes that I've recommended on this hub all include customer support. You can get in direct contact with the author of theme theme for specific instructions and help setting up your theme.

If you have no experience with Wordpress this support will definitely come in handy.

Also be sure to check that the theme includes a demo install. This means that all of the content that you see when you are previewing the demo is included for you to install on your own site. This will help you customize a lot easier.

It can be challenging getting your site just the way you want it. But just remember these themes are a great starting point to get your dating website business started. The goal is to generate income so that you can expand.

Wordpress is a great platform for you to grown your online dating website business.
