In this tutorial blog, we have mentioned step-by-step guidelines on how to develop a WordPress blog. So, Let’s Get Started!Start a WordPress Blog.
Setting up a WordPress blog is quite easy, but for that you require;
• A domain name (What will be the name of your blog)
• A hosting service provider (This is where your website will live)
• A little bit of time (to set-up the blog)
Once you have finalized the name of your website and hosting service provider, it’s time to start with WordPress development. For instance, let’s consider, you have selected “Bluehost” as your hosting partner with the package “X”.
Once you login into your hosting account, you will find plenty of icons (more than 90% of them are of no use at this point of time) along with the WordPress icon. Find the WordPress icon, and click on it.
Once you click on the icon, you will be redirected to a new page where you will be asked to select the domain name. Select the domain name of your choice and click on the next button.
After that, you will be asked to enter your website name, username and a password for your site (for admin panel). Make sure you check all the checkboxes and then click Install.
Once the WordPress is installed, select the theme of your choice (if you are running on a tight budget, then there are thousands of free WordPress themes available over the web). Once the WordPress installation is finished, you will be greeted with an “Installation Complete” message pointed out in the screenshot below.
Click on the link provided in the greeting message, and you will be redirected to your WordPress login URL, username and password as showed in the screenshot below.
