WordPress’s
Duality

If you search for WordPress
online, you will find two results of the software – WordPress.com and
WordPress.org. The difference in them is that – WordPress.com allows you to
make and host your website on their website. However, they have the right to
delete your website if they feel like you might at any time be violating their
agreement terms. You also cannot use plugins or monetize your website with ads.
This makes WordPress installation difficult for beginners.

This is the reason you should
prefer WordPress.org to build your website. The installation of WordPress
software provides the same design range and layout customization options while
giving you the option to self-host. There are some advantages when you select
to self-host your website, like being able to monetize your website with ads,
access thousands of plugins, having the option to customize your store. This
offers you to customize your website entirely. It also gives you the freedom to
own your domain name.

 

Steps
Install WordPress on Your Computer

There are two ways to install
WordPress on your computer. You can either do a local installation and then opt
for a hosting plan or you can host directly through a website.

We will talk about the web
hosting step in detail further in this post.

Local Installation

WordPress installation on
your computer locally is lengthy and can be confusing. All the website data
will be stored on your PC in local installation, ready to use. However, that
does not mean that it will automatically get uploaded for everyone to see on
the internet. To achieve that, you will require two things: a hosting plan and
a domain name. If you don’t want to go through the lengthy installation process
of WordPress on your computer, then registering for a hosting service and then
migrate your website to it. An easier alternative to this for beginners is to
select a web hosting provider.

All you have to do is choose
a web hosting provider.

agree to all the terms and conditions of the web hosting service. Once you have
completed all these steps, click on the “Install” option.

STEP
