There is good news for you. There is software out there that is so easy to use, anyone can successfully create a unique and professional website for their business, blog, or portfolio, and the name of the site is WordPress. This article will guide you step by step about the wordpress website and how to install it.

There are two types of websites one is WordPress.org, and the other is WordPress.com. Before it scares you, let me tell you that this difference is only related to the hosting of your websites.

Hosting owns your website or blog on WordPress.org through a third-party hosting channel. It requires downloading wordPress software and buying a domain name on the third-party site. You need to manage the server, and it gives you exposure to get hands-on experience.

WordPress.com offers to host your website. You do not have to download any software. There is a free version and the paid version. In the free version, your website will look something like this www. your website and the wordpress.com, whereas, in the paid version, you get your website name with no sub domain name. A few more examples to understand this better is.

WordPress org is the best fit if you want full authorization on customizing and taking control of your website. However, with taking the authorization a lot, many responsibilities come with managing a website like purchasing and setting up the domain name, uploading and installing plugins, theme, editing website’s code, and security.

WordPress.com is preferable to an ideal match that has most of the hard work done for you. For example, you do not have to manage your server, pay for your hosting, or buy a domain. In addition, many customization options come with a WordPress.com plan to help you make your website look the way you want it to.

Dotcom has a free and paid version. If you stick with the free version, you will not be able to upload any themes or plugins with a wordpress subdomain. But do not worry; you always have an option to upgrade to the premium version, where you can get the subdomain from third-party hosting websites.
