123host website hosting


Wordpress is probably the most popular web software. It is easy to use and can be made to look great. There is a bit of a learning curve, but there is also lots of help out there.

Before we get started, let's clear up something that confuses a lot of people, the difference between wordpress.com and wordpress.org.

Wordpress.com is where they host your wordpress site for you at the wordpress organisation. It isn't too bad, but you can get a little trapped there and also your options are a bit limited.

Wordpress.org is the division of wordpress where they give away the software for you to host it yourself at a webhost like 123host.com.au. You can download the software and install it yourself, but why would you when there is a quite straightforward method using your domain control panel - see the How to install Wordpress link below.
