Do you want to create an easy-to-build website or personal blog? If you have purchased a domain name or are ready to buy a hosting package, this class is for you. WordPress is a powerful and easy-to-use tool for building virtually any kind of site. We will guide you through the hosting domain process and will help you install WordPress on your own server. You will review the steps to configure settings, pick a theme, add pages and a blog; learn how to add photos, gallery, video or a map, or sell advertising, set up PayPal on your site. You will learn to build online forms, back up your database and update the site. There is no need to bring your own computer, just the credentials of hosting and website are needed. If you need to purchase a hosting package, WpZipHost is recommended.
