DQ's WebSolutions – WordPress Web Design and Resources
My Name is David Querry owner/creator of DQ's WebSolutions, located in Huntingdon, Pa. I have been creating websites since 1998!
DQsWebSolutions focus is to help start-up businesses, do it yourself types and those of you that want it all done for you. Put your WordPress website or blog to work for you! Earning passive income is what it's all about, right?
I use WordPress and The Genesis Framework along with Child Themes from StudioPress. The Genesis Framework provides a secure and easily customizable foundation that has built-in features like SEO Optimization and Responsive web design and state of the art security.

At DQ's WebSolutions you will find the resources, tools, tips, and training to start your own personal web presence. The resources that we recommend are the same tools we used to learn, understand and build our first WordPress Website. If you would prefer to hire someone to build your website, let us design it for you.

The first thing required to start your own website is to register your domain name. I suggest you register your domain with the hosting provider you choose. Most hosting providers will give a free domain (for the 1st year) if you sign up for their hosting plans.
For WordPress, I use and recommend using SiteGround for both. Check out our easy to follow step by step instructions for registering and hosting your site with SiteGround. I highly recommend using the Start Up (starts at $3.95 mo) or GrowBig shared hosting plans. Take advantage of the low introductory prices and sign up for as long as you can. The hosting plan will increase after the initial period is up. I use the 24-month plan for most “just starting out” websites.
After you get your www.yourname.com and sign up for a hosting plan, now it's time to build that website.
