WordPress would be my go to because I rely on it and it is compatible with most systems out there today.
I have a love/hate relationship with WordPress because it does have problems such as experiencing a lot of brute force attacks but I love the flexibility of it because of how far I can take a website. I love creating a theme from scratch and the frustration I go through when I realize I’m missing a semi colon in my code.
Installing WordPress. So you might be wondering how to get started with installing WordPress. You have to keep in mind that WordPress has 2 different sites. .org and a .com.
You’ll want to go with the .org method even though it is more involved, it’s where you can extend the functionality of your website.
Essentially you’ll need a few things to get started.
- Domain name – Domains can be picked up at Godaddy
- Hosting – Hosting for WordPress is best on Siteground or A2 Hosting
These are all subscription. So they’ll be pretty cheap.
Find a hosting provider that is reputable because you want to make sure your site has optimal performance. No one wants to visit a site that takes 10 seconds to load.
Most hosting providers already have a quick install for WordPress.
Purchase a domain name from a registrar like Godaddy. Connect the domain name to your hosting provider by using the name server field in the domain registrar panel. You can find name of your servers with your hosting provider or a confirmation email after purchase.
Install WordPress and good to go! Now you just need to find a theme. Choose wisely as some of them don’t get the necessary updates it needs.
