The two most popular ways to create a blog are through Blogger and WordPress. In this WordPress installation tutorial, our goal is to offer a comprehensive WordPress installation tutorial for beginners and advanced users alike providing a platform to share their ideas with the world.
WordPress is known as the most popular blogging platform and for its ease of installation which is commonly known as famous five-minute installation. We are going to show you how to install WordPress via one click installation application for beginners, manually via FTP for intermediate users. Lastly for advanced users and developers how to install WordPress locally on their computer.
Get a Hosting and Domain name
WordPress needs a domain name and a web server space to work. A domain name is the address people will type to access your site and a server space is where your content and files are hosted online. I usually suggest people to get a domain and hosting from the same place, in that way you’ll save some money and time. I personally use Godaddy managed WordPress hosting. It do all dirty backend work, providing me extra time to manage other aspects. You also qualify for free domain free of cost with this hosting.
Remember, all domain names are created equal and having one puts you on the same playing field as any big company out there. Anyone anywhere in the world can access your site by simply typing few letters in their browsers. Get a domain name from any Internet domain registrar although I recommend Godaddy (it’s the world’s largest ICANN-accredited registrar).
By now you owe a domain and web hosting. GoDaddy managed WordPress hosting comes with one click installation. All you need is to enter your username, password and email ID. Your site will be ready within couple of moments. You will see a confirmation message on your screen. Anyone can then access your new site.
Install WordPress on Local Computer
Local WordPress environment is commonly used by theme and plugin developers who want to see how their work looks like before they present it before the audience but this locally installed WordPress is exclusively for you and general public on net cannot access it unless you upload it on your server. We have already shared how to install wordpress on local server using WAMP on windows computer in our previous tutorial.
