    Hello People!

    this is my first time downloading WP. It came as a WIN-ZIP compressed file. But I cannot see a folder or what not, to instal the software onto my laptop?!

    Could someone please explain what to do?

    many thanks, Peter.

    You need a web server to run WordPress. Do you have a hosting account or are you planning to run WordPress on a local web server?

    Hello 'esmi'!

    Thanks for the reply...

    Could you explain for me please? I am totally new to this.

    Apparently you have to buy a domain name, then buy a host, then WP should instal automatically, right?

    So 'Host' is the provider for a 'server', right?

    Once I have these two, what do I do then?

    I appreciate any help.

    Many thanks, Peter.

    Correct

    No - you then have to install WordPress on your new hosting account. See Installing_Wordpress.

    Okay. Once you have a domain name, and a host/server for your URL and Site Creation Software, you can just put it all together somehow?!

    Hmmm...I not so clearly on how it all comes together? Could you explain in more detail please? It would be much appreciated.

    Depending on your host, you will have to install wordpress differently. Hostgator Uses cPanel
