Need to setup website with user registeration

Posted on 2012-08-14

Dear Experts,

First of all I'm not a web designer and I need to setup a website for personal free service.
I have domain and hosting ready, and I have made some simple web pages using free website templates provider.

I have to setup user registration which is like I want the visitor to sign up using registration form and the registration should be something like I want them to register and submit for registration but I want to manually approve registration by reviewing them myself.

So if the user register, at last step, they should get to the page mentioned that
" Thanks for registration, .....your member account will be active in X hour "

And soon as they registered, I should get notification email about new user and I'll manually approve user registration .

The next is I want to put a link about "Donate" and once user click on donate, it should take user to Donating page from which the user can donate money to my Bank account using Master Card.

For above two things, is there Website Maker software that can do ?
Or is there Website builder provider that has above two functions I want ?
If there is not, could you please let me know some instruction how I can make it ?

If software or website builder is not free too, I'm willing to buy it.
If above both requirement require to have PHP, SQL, I have all included in my hosting plan. Thanks for your help.

    Hi ,
    I am a wordpress expert. My company

    I suggest wordpress is the best solution for you. Install wordpress on your domain. Your hosting account should have automated wordpress installation methods. If not contact me.

    Then you can see plugins section after logging on with your admin username and password.
    Now this is a good plugin for the membership requirements you mentioned.

    You can see this video of mine for help installing plugins

    You can use this plugin for Adding "Donate" feature to your website.

    Via Paypal

    Via CNY, USD, SGD. Intergation alipay, paypal, moneybookers, visa mastercard, china union pay payment system

    Welcome to EE.

    If you want to promote yourself or your business, the proper place to do it is in your profile.  If you want to offer services to members then you can use the job board.  

    If you post comments like that the moderators may consider it a violation of the rules and take action. Some experts might just post a complaint about your post but I won't be doing that because you are new on the site and probably not yet familiar with how things are done.

    There is no delete option, only a moderator or admin has authority and tools to delete.  There is an edit, but it is only available for a short time after posting or until another comment is added. There is no harm done. I was just trying give a little guidance.

    Hi BMT,

    Let me consider your site as . To access the wordpress dashboard you need to go to and enter your username and password.

    You can setup your website on wordpress. There are 1000s of Free and paid themes and also you can make on your own too.
    You can add content to it. Well thats basics.

    I hope you have seen this video of mine
    It describes how to install a plugin on your WP site.

    Just visit this site and browse around to see if this is what you need.
    This is one of the site im working currently. It uses a plugin called Restrict Content Pro for membership features.
    The plugins are available at this website.
    For donation plugin you can use this :
    which is a leading "donate" plugin.

    There are many free plugins that match your criteria. If you did not liked those plugins you can always google them or Go to and search for the plugins you need.

    If you have trouble installing plugin then watch my video again clearly and follow steps ive mentioned in it.

    Let me know if you have any more questions !

    Thank You,
