Building a Restaurant Website with WordPress

WordPress is the most flexible and easy to use platform to build your restaurant website. It gives you access to dozens of payment platforms, third-party addons, thousands of templates and plugins. See our article on why you should use WordPress for more details.

You will need a self-hosted WordPress.org site to take advantage of all the powerful features of a WordPress site. See our guide on the difference between WordPress.com vs self-hosted WordPress.org site.

To start your restaurant website, you will need a WordPress hosting account. This is where your website will live on the internet. You will also need a domain name, which will be your website’s address on the internet such as wpbeginner.com.

We recommend using Bluehost. They are one of the largest hosting companies in the world and also one of the official WordPress hosting partner.

Next you will need to install WordPress. If you want step by step instructions, you can follow our guide on how to start a WordPress blog.

After the installation, you can pick a theme from our expert selection below and then follow instructions in our how to install a WordPress theme article.

WPBeginner 2016 Recap from Syed Balkhi

Wow what a year has this been for WPBeginner. Not only did we grow in all aspects from traffic to team size to revenue (coming from our premium plugins), but we also got a new site design after 4 long years.

Our YouTube channel doubled in size. We now have over 500 free video tutorials that have been watched by over 6 million people, and we have almost 47,000 subscribers. I would really appreciate it if you can subscribe to our YouTube channel. My goal is to reach the 100,000 subscriber mark in 2017.

Amanda and I welcomed our first baby, Solomon (born in October). To celebrate, we donated the wp.org domain to the WordPress foundation. Several of you asked for a picture, so here it is:

This was also a great year for WPBeginner’s family of products.

In March, we launched a new WordPress contact form plugin. It’s called WPForms, and we have both a free version and a premium Pro version.

I wrote a full WPForms backstory about how and why we started WPForms on my personal blog. It’s a fun read.

So far it’s being used on over 50,000 WordPress websites, and our users absolutely love it. Try the free version, so you can see the WPForms difference!

Our WordPress gallery plugin, Envira Gallery, doubled in size. We now have over 30 addons that makes Envira the most flexible and easy to use WordPress gallery plugin in the market.

We did a major overhaul to our WordPress slider plugin, Soliloquy. Aside from the completely new website design, we also significantly optimized the plugin workflow and added several new addons.

Our signature product, OptinMonster, continued to push the limits in 2016. Our team nearly doubled in size, and we have added tons of conversion optimization features such as dynamic text replacement, onsite retargeting, onsite follow up campaigns, and so much more. Seriously, if you’re not using OptinMonster, then you’re losing subscribers every day.

Michael Stelzner from Social Media Examiner added 250,000 new email subscribers using OptinMonster (see the case study).

We have a lot of exciting things coming up in 2017 including the revamp of MonsterInsights in January.
