Finally, we are here, to create our first personal or professional WordPress website for free.

In our previous lessons, we learned about websites, how they work, different types of websites, and free website builders online. Now we will learn how to setup a website so that you can work on it and share it with others.

Although there are many other best free website builders, we are going to make our first website on WordPress.

Things To Know Before You Make a WordPress Website For Free

In order to build a free website, you will need these 2 things:

  1. Domain Name – where people can access your website. For example, hostedlegit.com is our address.
  2. Web Hosting – storage where you will keep your website’s files and other documents

You can read more about the domains and web hosting in our types of websites lesson.

Before we move ahead, you should know that to make a free WordPress site, you can’t use your own free domain. What does that mean? Either you have to buy a cheap domain name or use your website on some sub-domain such as your-site.wordpress.com.

Let’s start 

Step 1 – Signup to WordPress.com
