How To Create Your Own Website With WordPress:

It’s not that hard to get started and create your own WordPress website. In this guide, I will discuss the basics of those who want to learn how to set up a website. If you want to immerse yourself and learn more, I’ll refer to some links at the end. This guide does not explain how to change the look of your website just the way you want it; you may need basic knowledge of HTML and CSS, as well as understanding PHP. However, there are some WordPress themes that let you change and design about almost everything on the website by making different settings; Thesis is such a WordPress theme.

1. Test WordPress in the easiest way

To easily test WordPress, I think you should start an account on it’s free and a simple way to get started with a website or blog. There you can choose a name for your page type: ( you can also buy your own domain name via, so your page gets the address rather than takes care of everything else.You just need to think about finding a beautiful theme to use on your page.

2. Full control of the website

Do not want to have the website via but still want to use WordPress and have full control of all code. Then you get an account on a web host, where you can register the domain name you want for your website, just as you can on, but with the difference here you have full control of the code on your website. However, you will need to download the source code from and install it on your web host if they do not support (one-click install).

When it comes to which web host you choose, I can recommend GoDaddy who have a good and friendly support. Regarding domain names, it is most common in the UK with the, .com, and .org endings. My advice is to register a address primarily if it is available, otherwise a .com and .org in the last hand.

3. What is WordPress?

WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) or content management system. There are several different CMS tools, such as Drupal and Joomla which, like WordPress, are built with open source, meaning they are free to download and modify as needed. Examples of other CMS licensed are EPiServer and SiteVision.

Of the systems I tested, WordPress is by far the easiest to get started with, maybe that’s why it’s so popular. WordPress is today the world’s largest CMS and operates around 20% of the entire world’s websites. WordPress is developed by a large community that provides updates, new themes, and plugins with different features. WordPress is also translated into most different languages.
