a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL that is usually used with the MySQL or MariaDB database servers but can also use the SQLite database engine. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system, referred to inside WordPress as Themes. WordPress is most associated with blogging (its original purpose when first created) but has evolved to support other types of web content including more traditional mailing lists and forums, media galleries, membership sites, learning management systems (LMS) and online stores. WordPress is used by more than 60 million websites, including 33.6% of the top 10 million websites as of April 2019, WordPress is one of the most popular content management system (CMS) solutions in use. WordPress has also been used for other application domains such as pervasive display systems (PDS). WordPress was released on May 27, 2003, by its founders, Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little, as a fork of b2/cafelog. The software is released under the GPLv2 (or later) license. To function, WordPress has to be installed on a web server, either part of an Internet hosting service like WordPress.com or a computer running the software package WordPress.org in order to serve as a network host in its own right. A local computer may be used for single-user testing and learning purposes. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
basic step is to choose hosting (i.e. the virtual place at the provider where our site will be located) and the domain or name of our site (e.g. mysite.com).I have been working on website development for 10 years and now I recommend A2 Hosting to my clients as the fastest cheap hosting. Compared to other well-known brands, at A2 Hosting we don’t have to buy in advance all year long (which costs around $100), but we can start from just $4 a month and have a fully functional website. Okay, so go to A2 Hosting homepage (http://bit.ly/a2-special-discount-ebook) and follow the instructions on the screenshots or video. Screenshots with a description can be found below, however, if you prefer to watch the video guide, here are is two movies – first about creating site in 10 min; second about creating a site with $5 or less!

asks us for a domain. If you don’t have your domain, you can immediately buy a domain for a year (e.g., .com domain costs around $10). This is a great offer for beginners who have not bought domains from other registrars and do not want to play with DNS changes.
select the third option (remember to enter the domain name correctly – after setting up your hosting everything will be based on the name you gave earlier). If you want to do it as cheap as possible and pay only $1.50 for domain or do not pay for the domain completely, see “Site For $5” bonus page at the end.
the payments and settings of our hosting. Here you decide whether you want to buy hosting straight away for e.g. a year and have payments off your head, or you prefer, however, to pay a smaller amount every month. As you can see, by registering from my link, you only pay $4.90 per month! Below you choose the location of your hosting – if the site is to be directed to people from the USA, select USA. If you live in Europe, choose a server from Europe. Scroll down – the last option to choose will be “Auto-Install Application”. Choose WordPress A2 Optimized as on the screen. You can leave the rest as it is and click Continue
a summary of the domain purchase will be displayed – if not, we are in the last step. Click “Checkout”, fill your personal details, choose PayPal, Skrill or Credit/Debit card and pay. After clicking “Complete Order” wait to configure everything. It’s best to come back in a few hours
don’t have WordPress installed. You already know how to check it from the previous step “WordPress Installation” If everything is ok, skip this step and continue to the WordPress Configuration pages. We won’t write much here – we’ll show everything on the screens. You must start by entering the “Welcome” email from A2 Hosting which gives the details to change dns and the login link. From there, you will log into the cPanel from where you can install WordPress on your hosting. See screenshots.
last step. Here we have room to show off and depending on the type of page we need, we do it a little differently. We will show here a way to configure using the Elementor plugin and in case you just need your simple blog. First, go to cPanel WordPress Installations (you saw it on the previous page) and click in the person icon. Please log in if you have to. You will be transferred to the WordPress Dashboard or the “management center” of your site.
time to install the theme. If you are starting a personal blog, I recommend searching Google on the phrase “free wordpress themes / free wordpress blog themes”. In this case I will show work with Elementor plugin, so our theme will be “OceanWP”.
will suggest installing additional plugins. We recommend installing the first two, i.e. Elementor (which will be our building block tool) and Ocean Extra. Third plugin – Rank Math is also a great SEO plugin, but don’t worry about it right now. For Install, just click “Begin installing plugins” and click install.
options, blocks and tools thanks to which we can create the dream page. Everything is very simple – just practice a little. We leave it to you – on the Internet you will find hundreds of guides about Elementor. If you need our help, write to us at “Need Help?” – we will try to reply as soon as possible. Good luck! Bonus – Webiste For $5 or $3 You can build your site for $5 a month. You can even have it for $3! Everything is shown in the movie. The trick is that we buy our cheap domain earlier, e.g. with the extension .club or .xyz, then we change the dns to those from A2 Hosting and we have a normally functioning website. You can find out where to buy such domains in the video. If you don’t care about your domain, you can use this domain from A2 Hosting! After choosing the hosting option (e.g. WordPress Hosting or VPS) we have the choice of domain. You can choose for free the last option with your name, e.g. mypage.a2hosted.com. You’ll only pay around $3 for hosting! Not bad at all, right? See the rest in the movie: https://youtu.be/oFx8q41Wbsw *The Ebook contains affiliate links from which we receive a commission.
