About This Class

In Part I of Building your Website/Blog from Scratch with WordPress Part 1: Choosing a Domain and Hosting, you chose your domain name, registered it, chose your provider, and picked a hosting package. You are now ready to install WordPress on the site.

This is easier than you might think! It is an extremely simple install but you don't know until you know, right? At the end of this class, your domain will be live with the default WordPress theme. It won't look like much just yet, but you should find it very rewarding to have your first website up live.

In Part III of this video series, we will talk about themes and customizing your site!
