How to Have a Domain Name and Free Hosting at WordPress.org

Hey, Everyone, I hope you’re doing well! I recently got a new laptop and decided to try out some of the awesome tools that are available for bloggers like myself. One of the first tools I tried out was WordPress.org. I decided to write a quick tutorial on how to have a domain name and free hosting at WordPress.org so you can get started creating your blog today! Let’s get started.

Install WordPress On Your New Laptop or Desktop

The first step in getting started with a blog at WordPress.org is to install WordPress on your new laptop or desktop. You can do this using the free WordPress installation tool from WordPress.org. Just visit this page on your new computer and follow the instructions to grab a copy of WordPress.

Once you’ve installed WordPress, go to dashboard (the big button in the upper right corner) and click on settings. This will bring you to your WordPress settings page. Here you can change the name of your blog and setup the email address where you’ll receive notifications of new posts.

Create A Subdomain At WordPress.org For Your Blog

Now that you’ve got WordPress installed and ready to go, you can create a subdomain at WordPress.org for your blog. To do this, click on the settings tab at the top of the WordPress dashboard and then click on subdomains. This will bring you to a screen where you can create a new subdomain for your site.

In the Name field, type in the name of your blog. For example, if you named your blog CoffeeTips, you would enter coffeetips as the name of your new subdomain. Then, in the Additional Settings field, you can configure the settings for your blog’s subdomain.

Let’s say your subdomain is coffeetips.wordpress.org (without the quotation marks). You can put your blog’s content in this space. The advantage of this is that visitors will be able to easily reach your content by just going to coffeetips.wordpress.org. This is also the URL you’ll use to access your blog’s content from outside of WordPress (via email, for example).

Register Your Blog At WordPress.org

Once you’ve created a subdomain for your blog, you can register it at WordPress.org. To do this, go to your subdomain (in my example, coffeetips) and then click on the register button. This will take you to the WordPress Dashboard where you can enter the information for your blog. You can give your blog a name, a brief description of what your blog is about, and an email address where you’ll receive notifications of new posts.

You can also import content from other sources to your new blog. To do this, click on the import button and select the folders containing the content you want to import. Make sure you select the all option before clicking on the import button.

Make Sure You’ve Got Free Hosting

It’s important to have free hosting when you’re first getting started with a blog. This will make sure that you have plenty of space to experiment with your new blog (and to grow with it!). There are many different hosting providers, but you should aim to go with one of the popular free host providers like Bluehost, GoDaddy, or Hostinger. You can get started with a free trial of any of these hosting providers, and if you decide that you like their service, you can sign up for a hosting plan.

Install WordPress On Your Old Laptop Or Desktop

If you’re still using the old laptop or desktop that you had when you started your blog, it’s time to install WordPress. You can do this using the free WordPress installation tool from WordPress.org. Just visit this page on your old computer and follow the instructions to grab a copy of WordPress.

Once you’ve installed WordPress, go to dashboard (the big button in the upper right corner) and click on settings. This will bring you to your WordPress settings page. Here you can change the name of your blog and setup the email address where you’ll receive notifications of new posts.

Create A Subdomain At WordPress.com For Your Blog

You can also create a subdomain at WordPress.com for your blog. To do this, go to additional settings (the gear icon under the dashboard) and then select subdomains. This will bring you to a screen where you can create a new subdomain for your site.

In the Name field, type in the name of your blog. For example, if you named your blog CoffeeTips, you would enter coffeetips as the name of your new subdomain. Then, in the Additional Settings field, you can configure the settings for your blog’s subdomain.

Let’s say your subdomain is coffeetips.wordpress.com (without the quotation marks). You can put your blog’s content in this space. The advantage of this is that visitors will be able to easily reach your content by just going to coffeetips.wordpress.com. This is also the URL you’ll use to access your blog’s content from outside of WordPress (via email, for example).
