    I'm trying to install an simple SSL certificate on the site I just completed and having a very difficult time doing so. Hostgator gave me a long and complicated way to do it which might end up deleting all the content. I thought this was a simple process. Can you help me? Thanks


    if you want to build an online store free for as long as you want with no obligation to upgrade unless you want to. with lots of features in the free version such as design, shopping cart, seo, paypal & stripe. adding all these to your store easily in a user friendly environment. No credit card required to sign up and you get a website, data secured with free ssl, choice of free domain names, shopping cart. type yes in reply here and I ll send you details in a message. When you reply yes here in the comments section it improves engagement for this video. just to be transparent I do have an affiliate link for them as well but once you know the name you can google it and join independently if you like. or if you appreciate the free information , you may proceed through my affiliate link or subscribe to my youtube channel for future updates. I don t get any commissions untill you upgrade. And you don t need to upgrade unless its worth it. The choice is entirely yours. Cheers

    how many tools do you need for growing your business? Do you need a website and a hosting? What about a mail autoresponder? Do you want to create videos for you web site and alson your ads? Maybe you will need an app or do Webinars to interact with your potential customers… The good thing is that this platform >> has all of this in a single box.

  • nisha nair

    at the woocommerce settings. i dont seem to have the mailchimp and automated tax option. should i add on a seperate plugin for it?

  • Stanley Tan

    hi hogan.Tx for the great tutorial. may be becos I'm doing this months after you created the video, Themify now ask that I update the theme to 1.4.8 from current 1.4.5. this however requires a license key. I don't remember anywhere in the process that asked for my signing up with Themify. as such do not have a sign in name nor password for Themify and consequently not in possession of a license key. could you help solve this problem as I can't update without the key. TQ

  • Chackie CookieCloud

    Hi Hogan you are the best and you inspired me lot. Please help me ..when I watch your video I was inspired to start my e-commerce website (Dropshipping) but I am scared right now and too risky for me because I am thinking that even I have my e-commerce shop …how can I promote it and market it for free ? I cannot afford the ads by facebook,amzon,etc. Making my website alone can cost like €100 (prefer one yaer + alidropship ) according to your video. And it will be a risk for me as a student and really really broke in life and alone, I am really happy that you made a video about "how to make e-commerce website without SHOPIFY. I was looking a lot of video on YT and just you did the step by step method. I am afraid because if I make my website and no one is buying… I dont want my e-commerce website just a "dead shop" . Can you help us to promote it for free or market it for free without ads ? Thank you so much hogan your my inspiration right now . I am loosing hope please help me or us with our online business .

  • Nikita Inaya

    Hi Hogan,

    I'm working on my 9th webshop for a customer but I can't seem to find a solution for this problem. I don't know where I can customize the background colour of the icon (1, 2, 3 etc) that you get when you put something in your cart. Also I don't know where I can customize the colors of de dropdown of my cart. I hope you will have the answer.

  • Aliyah Ong

    Other than the domain and hosting sites, is there anything else that needs to be bought? Like a business plan in WordPress? I tries using WooCommerce before but it is only available to business plans. Or will the site fall under business automatically because WordPress is installed thru HostGator?

  • Billionairing

    Hey Hogan,

    Hi Hogan great tutorial ! My homepage title gets overlayied when screen changes size, its responsive but doesnt look nice, any way to change this ?

  • Georg Andres Veskioja

    Hey, Hogan! Yet another fantastic tutorial! Altough it was 3 hours compared to the previos hour and a half, still very enjoyable, very well explained and straight to the point. Couple of questions:

    1. How to great a switch to a second language and how to built that one up? For example, can't figure out how to translate the whole cart and buying process into another language etc, so that "Add to cart" and "checkout" would show also in different language, maybe even the url bar(not that important tho).

    2. How to put the logo between the top nav. Something like this : about us shop LOGO blog contact
    My idea, was to disable the header and build a "fake" heading in the builder(really just a part of the body). But then I have to start messing with my hooks as well, so may be there's an easier way.

    Thank you in advance! Cheers!

  • Kuus OÜ

    Great video! one difficult question: so, I made a custom header with sticky header using this tutorial:, but it breaks when I go to my blog page or open any of my posts.
    If I go to the settings->reading and remove my blog from being a "Posts page" it fixes the blog page. I think it has something to do with the sidebar…
    you can take a look at and scroll down: ;
    Thank you in advance!

    Hello Hogan. I admire your work. Lots of interesting things I found out. However, I have questions: first – how to change the default descriptions, e.g. All, Price, Related products to another language? Second – how do you record the screen? Greetings from Poland.

  • Abe Rickard

    Hey Hogan, I was just wondering about the part around 01:39:08 where you are adding products to the homepage – I am able to drag the WooCommerce widget to the homescreen, but nothing shows up and if I click on edit I have no options available. It also did the same thing for the Product Category widget as well.
