Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Many people want to build a website, but don't have any knowledge in html and css coding. Other people just want a fast and easy way to build websites. For these people, Wordpress is the best choice. Using Wordpress to build a website is super easy and fun to do and I'm going to show you how.

Wordpress doesn't require you to have any knowledge in programming, but many people are confused when they need to set up Wordpress. I'm going to help you on your way, so you can start using Wordpress to build a website.

In order to build a website with wordpress, you need a couple of things. Firstly, you need a domain and webhosting. This is very easy to set up and relatively cheap. Go to, set up an account there and buy a domain with webhosting. It will cost you about 4 dollars per month.

Next you need to download Wordpress. You can download the latest version at After the download, unpack the .rar file anywhere you want on your computer.

Now you need to put the Wordpress files on your website. You can do this via an FTP program. The FTP program I personally use and recommend is CoreFTP. It's a very easy to use program and is completely free.

Start CoreFTP and log in, using the information that was given to you by your webhost. Now, just copy and paste all the files and folders you've unpacked earlier into your website.

When that is done, go to your browser and go to your domain. You'll see a message that there is no wp-config file. Click on the button to create that file. You need to fill out some information. If you don't know what to do, just go to your webhost's website and log in to get the information you need.

When you've completed the form, create a catchy name for your blog and fill in your email address. When you're done, you'll receive your username and password to log in. Write these down and log in in the next screen.

Congratulations! You are now behind the scenes of your very own website! From here, you can add pages, posts, install themes, plugins and every thing you need in order to create your own masterpiece online.

Using Wordpress to build a website is very easy to do in just a few steps. It might take some getting used to in the beginning, but once you get the hang of it, you wouldn't be able to imaging building a website without it!
