When I teach the Website Creation Workshop, I often get the question: “Where do I install WordPress?” and the answer is: “Wherever you want it!” You see, you can install WordPress at the root of your domain name, as in www.thebestthemes.com, or you can install it in a folder as in www.WebsiteCreationWorkshop.com/blog Here is a YouTube video I did that explains this: If you already have a website, and you want to add a blog to it, you can put it in a folder on your hosting company servers as /blog or /articles or /news or whatever you want to call it. Or if you want you can install the WordPress site at the root of your domain, and that is the site. (I prefer this method, since the URL links are shorter) (Hey, if any of this seems too techy, just put your question about it in the box below)

“I would recommend the Website Creation Workshop to anyone who wants to gain the freedom of building their own online presence!”
I am very grateful for Christina and her team to develop such a wonderful and useful course!
The workshop is so well-organized that a non-technical person like me can learn and master at my own pace. It teaches almost anything you can think of while building a website. I also had chances to ask my own questions and get answers on live calls. I feel so empowered that I can put up my own beautiful websites, and produce content that I want to share with the world.
I love the precious “real estate” on the Internet that belongs to me, instead of building on the rented land such as social media. I used to work with web developers on websites, it’s very time consuming with numerous back-and-forth emails and calls on any design idea or change, let alone the cost, time delay, and headache associated with it.
I would recommend the Website Creation Workshop to anyone who wants to gain the freedom of building their own online presence. I did it in four months with about an hour a day. It is an incredibly freeing experience to learn from Christina. Thank you!
“I’m so grateful to Christina Hills and the Website Creation Workshop!”
I’m so grateful to Christina Hills and the Website Creation Workshop. My professional passion is all about empowering the individual – and the Website Creation Workshop certainly fits that bill as well. After several ‘store bought’ websites and feeling terribly dependent upon my web designers, it’s so empowering to be able to handle any issues that come up, to have the Website Creation Workshop as a resource if I run into any issues I can’t solve on my own, and to be able to tinker with my design and wording to my heart’s delight without having to wait in line to get it implemented by someone else, and racking up a big bill for every tweak I want to make.
I have loved this process of learning to be an independent designer, user and modifier of my own website. I’m so grateful that I was able to go away for a period of time while ‘life happened’ and come back and pick up where I left off with ease, thanks to a little help from you all. I’m very grateful to you for providing this service.
“I am not a technically savvy person. And I just completed a gorgeous website that I’m really pleased with!”
“I am not a technically savvy person. And I just completed a gorgeous website that I’m really pleased with! Christina’s WCW is extremely well organized and detailed. Even I could follow it with ease! I feel empowered, because the world of websites is no longer a big mystery. What a wonderfully surprising silver lining.”
“It is EMPOWERING!”
Christina’s Website Creation Workshop was FANTASTIC! As a graphic designer, I know how to make things look pretty! But I learned so much more about building an interesting and effective website.
Christina teaches at a pace that is slow and powerful, so all of the details have time to soak in. I highly recommend, and do to all of my entrepreneur friends, Christina’s training. It is EMPOWERING! Thanks!
“Super big thank you to Christina!”
After following Christina Hills online for a while I found her instruction to be very thorough, and honest in approach, so I decided to give the Website Creation Workshop a try. It happened at a time when I was struggling with another web designer, again, a grand total of four designers over a period of 15 years!!! I couldn’t be happier to not have to make those angry, frustrated calls anymore. Seriously!
Aside from things typically taking way too long, if they were even done, creative differences tended to be a problem for me as well. “What do you mean you don’t want to do that?” I find myself repeating over and over for things like “Why is the site not mobile responsive?”….. Never again!
Super empowering to not be subjugated to the will of another. With my vision, and the skills I’ve learned, I can build what I want, and change/modify it when I see fit, or necessary. Super big thank you to Christina and the WCW team for helping me get here!
“I am glad to have taken a chance on this course and am so happy to have completed this website!”
I have attempted to learn WordPress many times with online tutorials, and continued to hit “roadblocks” where I couldn’t figure out how to move forward.
With the Website Creation Workshop, I was able to understand how WordPress works so much more clearly and was able to ask critical questions when needed. I am glad to have taken a chance on this course and am so happy to have completed this website – one that I hope will be the first of many more!
“I love my new site and I feel very proud of myself for pushing through my anxiety to learn so many new skills!”
Christina’s methodical and detailed approach to teaching WordPress is amazing! I had been afraid of WordPress before joining the WCW!! But Christina and her team make it all feel manageable, one step at a time.
I love my new site and I feel very proud of myself for pushing through my anxiety to learn so many new skills. There is no way I could have done it (or would have had the nerve to try) without Christina Hills and the WCW. Thank you so much!!
“Couldn’t be happier with my outcome!”
“Your course was very thorough and provided so much content, but in a very organized and feasible way.”
“I highly recommend Christina’s course – and have to many, many people!”
“I never thought I would be this happy with a website!”
I never thought I would be this happy with a website! I was stuck between paying AT LEAST $5000 for someone else to create a good website vs. creating a website myself that I wouldn’t really like. I didn’t want to pay that much, but I knew that I didn’t have the expertise to create even a bad website.
But with Christina’s Website Creation Workshop, I produced something that I am proud of and that is constantly getting me compliments! The step-by-step process is very straightforward and easy. Christina has “game-a-fied” the creation process so you see yourself making progress as you go. Not only do I love my site, but I’ve been able to even help some other people because of the training I’ve received!
“Christina Hills’ Website Creation Workshop course is The Best online course I’ve ever taken!”
Christina Hills’ Website Creation Workshop course is The Best online course I’ve ever taken! Here’s why: It’s way more than information-packed (which it is). It took me, step-by-step, to create my own website in a way that was thorough, and easy to understand, and supportive, and encouraging, and easy to follow … AND FUN!
Yes, there’s a learning curve, but after the first few modules, I was having FUN being creative, building my very own website exactly how I wanted it. I’m thrilled with the result, and I’m excited to show off my new site to a new and wider audience!
“I have a website I love!”
“I have gained skills and confidence in designing my own site!”
Christina and her team have finessed the tricky balance between challenge and encouragement through an on-line platform allowing for even the most technically-challenged entrepreneur to be successful with developing their own website. I have gained skills and confidence in designing my own site – and now maintaining it — all while having fun! I’m so glad I found you when I did.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”
“Thank God I found Christina and her team!”
WOW! I can’t believe I created my own website! When I began this journey I was not sure I could really do it. After years of having paid others to create and maintain a website, I thought I might be getting in over my head. Thank God I found Christina and her team!
They have a fantastic program that allows you to move at your own pace and ask questions along the way. Everything is beautifully put together and well thought out. I think this is the only way I could’ve accomplished this. I did the work knowing someone was there to patiently guide and support me when I needed it. Thanks to Christina and her team for a putting together this beautiful program.
“I highly recommend The Website Creation Workshop!”
I’m so very grateful to Christina Hills and her fantastic team for empowering me to create and manage my website. Her explanations are clear, up to the minute. They provide not only of the necessary technical information, but also a nice dose of encouragement and strategy as well, which makes it possible for even a technophobe like myself to accomplish this project.
In addition, the structure of her course and continued support allowed me to go at my own pace, which was absolutely necessary for me. I highly recommend The Website Creation Workshop!
“The Website Creation Workshop has been extraordinarily helpful and made it fun to build a website!”
The Website Creation Workshop has been extraordinarily helpful and made it fun to build a website – and in a shorter time than expected. Building a website used to be something I dreaded, but knew that I had to take care of as a new online entrepreneur. I feel proud of what I have accomplished, and empowered to maintain and improve the site on an ongoing basis. Thank you so much Christina and team!
“I can officially say that I am in business worldwide!”
“I have found you and your staff to be some of the best in the industry!”
One of the things I love about you and your company Christina, is that you run it from an abundant loving place, like you’re caring for your fellow human. Along with all your brilliant teaching skills, you make it easy to want to stay connected to you, Christina, because you have built in the space for people to be human and change their mind or go through hard things and you support us in that.
I have found you and your staff to be some of the best in the industry to work with when issues come up. I appreciate this about you and it’s what will keep me coming back!
“I’m honored to be one of Christina Hills students!”
I want to deeply thank you Christina Hills and Team for the outstanding quality of the program and the kind and helpful assistance I received all along my Website Creation Workshop journey. I will keep being and attached member of Christina Hills Community and I’m honored to be one of her students.
“Christina instills confidence and independence in her students.”
“Christina provides a wealth of information in a clear, concise, practical and fun manner!”
Christina provides a wealth of information in a clear, concise, practical and fun manner. I tried to do my own WordPress website and ended up frustrated and with unsatisfactory results. After attending a free webinar about the Website Creation Workshop, I knew immediately that she was an excellent teacher, presenter and a person of heart.
I am so thrilled with my new website and my ability to control and grow my content over time. I ran into some challenges along the way, but Christina and her team were there every step of the way. That is a sign of a great teacher! Thank you Christina and I look forward to continuing the journey with you in other workshops.
“If it weren’t for the Website Creation Workshop, I might still not have a website up and running!”
If it weren’t for the Website Creation Workshop, I might still not have a website up and running! Christina goes through things step by step so that you not only know what buttons to click, but why.
The knowledge will continue to be helpful so that even if I have someone else manage updates on my website, I can easily go in and make quick changes myself and will understand what I’m asking someone else to do. This was a great way to get myself going!
