The WordPress Logo

When it comes to the best blogging platform, there are several options you can choose from. All are named WordPress.

Just kidding. There are platforms which are not named WordPress. But WordPress dominates the world of blogging.

There are indeed a few versions of WordPress. When I was an absolute novice to the web, I was unable to grasp the differences between wordpress.org, wordpress.com and wordpressdirect.com.

Changing your name servers

You now need to link them before you can get your own site online. You do this by changing your name servers. When you do this, searchers who try to link to your site will be led politely, silently and instantly by your domain registrar to the site you have installed with your hosting account.

Setting up your hosting account

My host

For the purposes of this article, we will use my favorite hosting service, Hostgator. Hopefully, I will not have reason to quit this hosting service even after I figure out why their alligator is eating their own logo. I am working on this mystery.

Go to www.hostgator.com (or whatever your host’s site is). You will be led to their home page, more or less like the screen shot below.
