Support » Fixing WordPress » How to setup host

  • I have just started out making my website and I was just confused about a couple of things.

    – What is the difference between WordPress.org and WordPress.com. Which one is better?

    – How do I purchase domain with Bluehost as my host so I can have .co.nz at the end of my domain.

    I am very new to WordPress. Any help is really appreciated.

    Thanks

    What is the difference between WordPress.org and WordPress.com. Which one is better?

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are two different entities: https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_vs_WordPress.com

    How do I purchase domain with Bluehost as my host so I can have .co.nz at the end of my domain.

    Please contact Bluehost directly.

    Do I have to contact Bluehost directly to switch to that host as well?

    How do I change my hosts?

    Contact your provider. We have nothing to do with all that.

    The purchase of a domain name is done through a registrar. It is separate from the purchase of hosting, although a lot of companies do both. Regardless of where you purchase either one, you have to point the domain name to the hosting, so that your web site will be found at your domain name.
    After you have hosting, then you install WordPress, which is why we “don’t have anything to do with all that”.
