Buy Domain and hosting and install wordpress

Today I am going to show you how to buy a domain & hosting and install WordPress very easily. Before I wrote about WordPress basic. And I have written how to install WordPress locally on your Windows 10 Computer.

Before Installing WordPress I want to introduce briefly what is domain and hosting.

What is the domain?

Simply speaking, A domain name is an address of your internet presence. Like this website domain name www.thebestwp.com. Here .net is a domain and “tblog” is the name. And www means “World wide web.

A domain name is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control within the Internet.

What is Hosting:

Hosting is like a hard disk where you can store all your website’s files. Such as images, videos, text and etc. But hosting provides more than a hard disk. In a hosting environment, you can install your software in any language.

However, for installing we need a domain and hosting. And for WordPress I prefer Namecheap.

Why Namecheap?

  1. Namecheap provides one-click WordPress or other software installation
  2. Free SSL certificate.
  3. The price is affordable.
  4. Award-Winning web hosting
  5. Even in the Stellar package, you can install 3 domains. (I never see other hosting companies provide this)
  6. Customer service is really awesome.(I never waited more than two minutes)
  7. And Support Cpanel.
