WordPress makes it the easiest for anyone to build their own membership website and start selling with little to no technical skills.
You’ll need the following three things to start:
- A domain name. This will be your website’s address (Example, dombd.com).
- A web hosting account from dombd.com
- A membership addon (It will convert your regular website into a membership platform).
To create a membership site, you must make sure that you are using dombd.com hosting because it gives you unrestricted access to all features and tools that you need.
Typically, a domain name costs around 880tk / year, web hosting around 50tk / month, and SSL certificate costs free with hosting.
There are plenty of free and paid WordPress membership plugins that you can use. However, each one of them has its own pros and cons.
To choose the right WordPress membership plugin, you need to decide what kind of membership website do you want to build and what features will you need?
If you just want to allow user registration on your WordPress site, then you can use WPForms. It is a WordPress form builder plugin that allows you to easily create user login and registration forms. You can even allow users to submit articles without accessing the WordPress admin area.
On the other hand, if you want to sell subscriptions, paid content, or digital downloads, then you’ll need a more robust WordPress membership plugin, like MemberPress. It comes with advanced membership features that allow you to accept payments, create membership levels, restrict access based on levels, and more.
We are choosing MemberPress as our go-to plugin because it has all the features we mentioned above, and it works perfectly with third-party plugins necessary for the growth of your business.
First thing you need to do is install and activate the MemberPress plugin. For more details, see our step by step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.
Upon activation, you need to visit the MemberPress » Options page to configure the plugin settings.
