    If you self-host, then you will need to pay for your domain name and hosting account. The WordPress software is free. If you opt to use a site, there is no cost.

    I would recommend the self-host ( option. It will cost you about $8/yr for the domain and $80/yr for shared hosting. Unless you want a premium theme, which isn’t necessary, you’re under $100/yr — probably the best money you’ll spend on your business.

    Also, look for hosts that offer “one-click install” of WordPress. Usually this will be listed as Fantastico and/or Softaculous – it makes it super-easy for you (you don’t need to know anything technical to set it up).
