Setting up WordPress

1. Do you have a domain name?

If not, pick and name and see if the domain name you’d like is available. Go ahead and purchase your domain. Places to register your domain name include GoDaddy.com, Gandi.net, and Namecheap.com.

2. Now, you need to choose a hosting company (if you do not already have one).

WordPress has a short list of hosting companies they recommend for hosting a WordPress sites. We recommend using http://www.bluehost.com/ or http://www.godaddy.com. There are other hosting sites you can find at http://wordpress.org/hosting/ .
