10-Step Guide To Using Wordpress Software including Creating First Website!
- -- --- -- -
In the previous guide, you learned which web hosting companies are recommended by WordPress.org. To refresh your memory, these are Bluehost, SiteGround, and Dreamhost.
Each web hosting company has its pros and cons, one may be better than the other in a particular aspect. But the most important thing to note is that you really can’t go wrong with any of these three hosts.
If you want to go web host shopping, you can try out each host for a short period of time as all three hosts offer money-back guarantees. Bluehost and Siteground offer 30 days while Dreamhost offers a 97-day money back guarantee.
Now, what’s really great about these three hosts is that they make it super easy for new WordPress users to get started on WordPress. A few years ago, you’d have to have some technical knowledge to be able to install WordPress on your website.
You’d have to download WordPress from WordPress.org and then upload it to your web host via FTP or file transfer protocol. But not anymore.
WordPress 1-click install is the easiest way to install the software on your website. As the name suggests, all you have to do is click a single button, wait a few minutes, and you’ll have a brand-new WordPress website!
But, is that really all there is to it?
Well, in a sense, yes. But you still have to fill out a few essential fields before you can install WordPress. Don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything technical, if you’re worried about that.
