    Hello,

    I am only just starting to learn here. My plan right now is the following. Does that make sense?

    1. Download XAMPP and install on my PC. I donĀ“t have a domain, website or webhosting provider yet.

    2. Download WordPress on my PC. Again, no connection to any webhosting/domain.

    3. Create my website with WordPress on my PC.

    4. Once I know what my website should look like, get a domain and webhosting contract.

    5. Upload the wordpress website to this webhosting space and thus make the website publicly available.

    Am I roughly on the right track?

    Thanks for any comments.

    Yep, that sounds like a decent plan of attack to me.

    When you get to step 5, make sure you follow this guide: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress
