What is WordPress?

WordPress is the world’s most popular tool for creating websites. WordPress is capable of creating any kind of website, from a simple blog to a full-featured business website. You can even use WordPress to create an online store.  

You say you’ve never built a website? That’s not a problem! With WordPress you don’t need any coding or design skills to create a professional looking site. There are thousands of free site designs to choose from (these designs are known as “themes” in the WordPress world). With WordPress it’s easy to build your website without writing a single line of code or knowing anything about HTML.

 

Getting WordPress

Unlike traditional desktop software, WordPress runs online (in the cloud, so to speak). There’s nothing to install on your computer and you don’t need any special tools. You can update your website from anywhere that you have an Internet connection – even your smartphone. There are even free WordPress mobile apps for iPhones and Android phones.

 

WordPress.com is the hosted version. That means your website runs on the official WordPress servers. You can go there right now and create your own website for free in just a few minutes. There are a few limitations to WordPress.com. You won’t have access to all of the thousands of themes that area available. And you can’t use WordPress plugins (those are mini-programs that add special features to your website). There’s also a small fee if you want to use your own domain name.
