The first step is purchasing your domain. This gives you a name and a marker. Your domain isn’t a website. Your domain is an address. But you need that address to be attached to your home. Your web hosting location is your home that the address points to. There are many locations that are willing to host your website so that you can have your input on the internet.

Wordpress:

Wordpress is a great host for information websites and blogs. Wordpress has a built in login that will allow you to update and post your information and your pictures.
