How to Build a Simple Website with WordPress (2021)
This video will show you how to build a simple WordPress website, step by step, and in a way that anyone should be able to follow.

I created this WordPress tutorial for complete beginners, and the whole process will take LESS than 60 minutes.

So if you need a website for a business you’re starting, or just if you want to build one for fun… This is how you do it!

DOMAIN & HOSTING

When it comes to building a website with WordPress, we only need to pay for 2 things, which are a “domain name” and “web hosting” (WordPress itself is free).

I personally recommend using hostgator.com for both of these. HostGator are who I use myself, and also who I have the most experience with.
