Set Up A WordPress Blog From Scratch
Do you want your own website, would you like to set up a WordPress blog from scratch so that you can put your business online? If you have been running any type of business for any amount of time, than you know how important it is for you to have your very own website on the internet. In this article I will show you step by step exactly how to set up a WordPress blog for your business.
Setting up a WordPress blog is really not difficult at all. There's really only three steps involved and once you have those three steps conquered, all you'll need to do next is perfect your skills. There are two types of WordPress blogs that can be set up to represent your website. You can do either a Hosted (ie: WordPress.com) blog or a Self Hosted (ie: WordPress.org) blog
Set Up A WordPress Blog ~ Difference Between WordPress.com & WordPress.org
The major difference between a WordPress.com & a WordPress.org is that WordPress.com will host your website for you under their terms and conditions, which can be very risky. Whenever you create a website of your own, you always want to make sure you have complete control over your content. The reason being is because if you have been running your website for quite some time under WordPress rules and regulations, and say for instance you put a piece of content on your site that they don't approve of, than WordPress will have the power to shut your website down with no regards to all of your hard work and dedication if they are the one hosting your site.
So you see by hosting your own site using the WordPress.org as your platform, you will have full control over all of the content you put on your site and the only person that could shut you down is you.
