What is WordPress

WordPress is free and easy to use. It works well with thousands of plugins and extensions that make your website effective and useful.

This therefore makes it easy for every one to have a website in 2021.

How to find, register a domain name and buy hosting

A domain is an address for your website on the internet. Such as Google.com or justcreativedesigns.com.

It is nice to get a domain name relevant to your niche but it is not a must. The content you put in the website will help it in being found and not the name.

For example, a few years ago we never knew what google meant but now we know it as an awesome search engine.

Step 1: Go to Buy a Domain and Hosting

Click on shared hosting and toggle from monthly to annually. Choose the LH-Micro package. We can update this later to a better package.

Step 2: Type the name you chose for your domain and make sure it shows dot com at the end. Make the name simple and easy to remember.
