There are two ways to get started…
- WordPress.com gives you a fully hosted, paid website solution with everything included, from your domain name to hosting and support. This is a paid solution and offers a number of different plans and pricing to suit your needs.
- WordPress.org is a free, open-source version that any developer can download and build on free-of-charge. This is our preferred option and all of our sites are built using this method.
Once downloaded and installed, it gives developers and users a fantastic, easy-to-use, ready-made platform on which amazing, functional websites can be created. The framework is simply a set of website files and folders, which can be downloaded directly for free or, with most web hosts, installed directly using a one-click app installation. Alongside the web files, it is also powered by an SQL database.
