Before we can install WordPress, we need to set up your domain. Here’s how:

  • Purchase a domain from a domain registrar like GoDaddy, Namecheap, or Bluehost.

Step 2: Setting Up Your Web Hosting

Next, you’ll need to set up your web hosting. Here’s how:

  • Choose a web hosting provider. Some popular options include Bluehost, SiteGround, and HostGator.
  • Follow your web host’s instructions to set up your hosting account and connect it to your domain.

Step 3: Installing WordPress

Now that your domain and hosting are set up, it’s time to install WordPress. Here’s how:

  • Log into your web hosting account.
  • Look for the “Install WordPress” button. This is usually located in the control panel or dashboard of your web hosting account.
  • Follow the prompts to install WordPress. You’ll need to enter some information, like your site name, admin username, and password.
  • Click “Install” and wait for the installation to complete.
