Create a WordPress website

Start by choosing and buying a domain name, setting up hosting, and installing WordPress. Once your site is set up, you will choose and install a theme, and customize with plugins and widgets. You will then enter your content into pages, posts, and headers, and learn the skills required to continually update and maintain your website.
