How to Get Started with WordPress in Three Steps

  1. Get hosting 00:59
    • The first thing you want to do when you get started with WordPress is to choose a hosting company.
    • We recommend WP Engine. It is a top tier hosting platform that comes with many great features.
  2. Download WordPress 01:24
    • You can head over to the WordPress website, or install right from WP Engine!
    • These are two trusted methods of installing WordPress.
    • Be wary of other 3rd party install softwares or plugins. They can have vulnerabilities and install extra software that will bloat your website.
  3. Choose a theme framework 02:33
    • There are many different themes out there, but our favorite by far is the Divi theme.
    • It is just an all around great platform with many features that make building and designing websites very easy.
  4. Check out these YouTube channels for more info on getting started 03:13
    • YouTube channels like Darrel Wilson and WPCrafter have many tutorials on how to get started with WordPress.
