Support » Installing WordPress » Installation, How do I start

  • Hi everyone. As I know nothing, and I do mean nothing, of this matter, I do ask that people are patient with me.
    I’ve a PC with Windows 10 and wish to start a web site. My needs require WordPress.org, .com wouldn’t do, but I don’r know where to begin. The blogger option would be enough for what I want to do, as long as I can install my own domain name. Is that possible? I’d not heard of servers that are recommended, like PHP and MySOL, so don’t know how you use them. I Did you warn that I know nothing lol!
    I’ve acquired a domain name from Godady, and they can install WordPress for me. Would that be my best option? If so, I presume I’d need to pay the fee of both Godady and WordPress.
    Thanks in advance to any who can help me.

  • Grab a nice cup of your favorite beverage and settle in for a little reading before proceeding. This is a good place to start:

    https://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page
    https://codex.wordpress.org/Getting_Started_with_WordPress

    Those pages will provide lots of great information on server requirements, installation procedures, and info on getting started.

    There is no fee for the WordPress software. You will of course need to pay for your hosting services, but those plans and details can be worked out with the GoDaddy support team, and will depend on what type of plan you decide on.

    Some info directly from GoDaddy that might help point you in a good direction as well: https://www.godaddy.com/help/getting-started-with-wordpress-5140

    Thanks very much for replying. I’ve a glass of my favourite beverage to hand, whisky, and I may need a few! Tried to sign in to the forum, but got a message saying no user of that name existed, but happily going to my profile worked. Now I’m past that hiccup, I’ve looked at GoDaddy, and its fee is to high.
    A WP blog has the features I need, and costs only £2.25 a month, and there’s an invitation to start, but all I’m seeing about using WP makes it sound fiendishly complex. It says you can use your own domain on a blog, yet it’s on the .com page, and somewhere else on WP it says only .org sites allow that.
    Weebly offers a site, with my domain name, for £3 a month, maybe that’s the best choice for me, but thanks for helping.

    No you don’t need to pay the WordPress for installation. only godaddy has hosting charges as per there monthly and yearly plan once u have signup with there plan u can easily install wordpress from there cpanel.

    If you have a domain in one domain provider, and then you need to install some CMS, like WordPress, its not pay anymore. Usually, its include the domain you bought. But if you want to update or backup regularly, you need to extra pay for their services.
