Before we start with the process, let’s look at the introduction to Joomla and the basics of it.

Now, it’s time to start yours.
1.To launch your site, you have to create an account with Joomla.
2.Once you have clicked on the link, <— this page will appear. As I written on the image, enter the name of your business or personal name. (If required business name not available, please enter your name or initials of your name)
3.In this page there are two options for you to select. When you click on Advanced settings, the image beside this paragraph will appears. Here you can select, the version that you want to use, location of the server, choose template and renewal period of your site. You can setup daily renewal option in Joomla.
4.If you want to purchase hosting, go through Add hosting and support button and it will give you the best plan options for your site.
5.Once you have done all these accept the terms and conditions of Joomla and click on launch now button.
It asks to register with Google, Facebook or manually (means need to enter your details in a form with your email address).

It will take couple of minutes to set up your site with chosen template, so you can relax or take a sip of coffee 🙂 .
Done. Here is the look of dashboard of your site. It’s CCP (Cloud Control Panel)
That’s an amazing control panel. You can see lot of options here. Your site will appears under the Product/service tab. When you click on that link your site appears in new tab.
check the test site here, which I have created. It appears like that.
If you click on the Login button on the right side of your website link, the control panel will open, there you can modify the site options and edit the content.
In CCP you will see lot of options in the left side of the panel. From here you can open an online store or get trained on Joomla. You can become an affiliate for Cloudbase3 by opting for it.
