Setting up a website with WordPress

Setting up a website can be quick, easy and cheap. In this post, John Espirian shows you a step-by-step guide to getting started with WordPress.

The video that accompanies this post focuses on the ‘how’ but not the ‘why’. If you haven’t read the introductory post in this series, I’d suggest taking a look before following the steps in this video.

Key facts

Here’s a quick summary of what you can expect when setting up a website with WordPress.

Conclusion

I’ve found WordPress to be an excellent Content Management System (CMS) and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone interested in setting up their own website. I’m particularly impressed by the user interface for writing and editing content.

WordPress is no longer a platform just for blogging, and it’s no surprise to me that it now powers more than 80% of all websites.

It’s free to get your own site with WordPress, so why not give it a whirl?
