Are you wondering about the type of websites you can create with wordpress?

Well, this will clear your doubts that WordPress is an amazing tool that can help you create any type of website. 

In this article I will list out 100 different types of websites in different niches with examples.

Let’s Begin.

Getting started With WordPress.

As a beginner the question of the type of website you can create on wordpress is very common. The first step you need to take before deciding on the type of website you can create are

  1. Getting a domain name.
  2. Getting web hosting.

Recommendations: We recommend using Bluehost or Namecheap when starting out for your hosting and domain name.

Bluehost gives a free domain name as a first timer when you buy their web hosting plan for $2.5 per month, also they preinstall the wordpress platform for you and they have great customer service to help you out.

Name cheap gives all first timers a discount when you buy domain and hosting from them.

What are the two types of wordpress websites?

  1. Self-hosted WordPress sites (WordPress.org): This is when you install WordPress on your own web hosting account and have full control over the site. You can customize it as you want, add your own plugins and themes, and monetize it any way you want.
  2. Hosted WordPress sites (WordPress.com): This is when you create a website on WordPress.com, which is a fully-hosted platform that manages the technical aspects of running a website for you. While you have less control over the site, it’s much easier to set up and manage, and you don’t need to worry about web hosting or site security.Although it is very costly.

Now that we have understood the difference let us list out all the different types of websites you can create on wordpress.

Key points:

  • Prepare to be paying up to $7 a cup by the end of the year
  • Shipping costs and natural disasters in coffee regions are being blamed for the price increase
  • Australians consume one billion cups of coffee annually, but cafe owners say an increase in price won’t change that

It’s nearly five times the container prices of two years ago due to global shortages of containers and ships to be able to take things around the world.

The pain will be felt from the cities to the outback, but Mr Parnham said the increase was well overdue, with the average $4 price for a standard latte, cappuccino and flat white remaining stable for years.

“The reality is it should be $6-7. It’s just that cafés are holding back on passing that pricing on per cup to the consumer,” he said.

But roaster Raoul Hauri said it hadn’t made a dent in sales, with more than 300 customers still coming through the doors for their daily fix. “No one really batted an eyelid,” he said. “We thought we would get more pushback, but I think at the moment people understand.

“It is overdue and unfortunately it can’t be sustained, and at some point the consumer has to bear that.”

Paving the way for Australian producers

While coffee drinkers will be feeling the pinch, Australian producers like Candy MacLaughlin from Skybury Roasters hopes the increasing cost of imports will pave the way for growth in the local industry, allowing it to compete in the market.

“[In the ] overall cost of business, we haven’t been able to drop our prices to be competitive, so we’ve really worked on that niche base,” Ms MacLaughlin said.

“All those things will help us to grow our coffee plantation once more.”

She said the industry could eventually emulate the gin industry, with boutique operations cropping up across the country.

“I think the demand for Australian coffee at the moment is an ever-changing landscape and more and more Aussies are starting to question where their food comes from, who is growing it”

“What you will get is all these kinds of niche coffee plantations who develop a very unique flavour profile and then market in funky packaging and appeal to certain markets,” she said.

“That’s where I see the next stage of the Australian coffee industry going.”
