WordPress Website – Step 1 – Building A Free WordPress Site

By Palma

In this article I would like to explain the easiest way to build a WordPress website for yourself. This is a very simple process and can have you up and running on the internet very quickly.

The first decision you need to make is how you want to host your WordPress website. There are two options available to you. The first option is to host your website with WordPress and is 100% free. The second option is to have your WordPress website hosted by your own provider. I highly recommend having your WordPress website hosted by your own provider but there are varying costs involved.

You will have to purchase a domain name-

1. Varying costs depending on who you purchase from and the time period you purchase for.

2. If you beloved this short article and you would like to receive a lot more information with regards to best free porn sites (https://www.skynlondontantricmassage.com) kindly stop by our website. I recommend purchasing a domain name for a minimum of two years because you will get ranked higher in the search engines and it is a onetime fee for period you select.

and you will have to purchase hosting-

1. Varying costs depending on the hosting provider you select and the plan you decide to purchase. These are generally monthly fees.

2. I highly recommend using HostGator for your WordPress website because of the tremendous support they give to their clients.

Now let me quickly explain the difference between the two options. Option 1 will give you a website URL (what people enter in their browser bar to go to your site) that will look like this your_website_name.WordPress.xxx and option 2 will give you a website URL that will look like this your_website_name.xxx (or instead of the.com you might choose a.net or.org). With option 2 you have much more control over your website and also obtain much better rankings in the search engines.

Now it is time for you to make a decision on which option meets your needs. I will now explain the steps you need to follow for the free option in this article. My next article will explain option 2.
