    Hi,
    I am very new to creating websites using wordpress.I had a few questions:

    1)Can I first install WordPress on my laptop, select a theme, create a couple of pages.
    2)Now,I choose a domain name, and then host my website?

    Can the process be done in this way or do I have to first get a domain name, and select a hosting site and then download wordpress?

    Thanks for your help!

    Best,
    Renuka

    You can install and create your site on your laptop, but you will then need to move the site to a host - and that can be a bit complicated if you are not familiar with servers, FTP, etc. These articles should provide more info:
