WordPress is a popular content management system (CMS) that enables users to create a website from scratch, or to improve an existing website. WordPress is free and open-source software released under the GPLv2. To install WordPress on a root domain, you will need the following:
A domain name that is registered and available for use
A hosting account with a WordPress installation
A copy of the WordPress installation files
1. Register a domain name and host it on a hosting account.
The first step is to register a domain name that you will use to host your WordPress site. You can find a list of available domain name providers on the World Wide Web.
Once you have registered a domain name, you will need to host it on a hosting account. There are many hosting providers that offer WordPress-compatible hosting plans.
2. Download and install the WordPress installation files.
The next step is to download the WordPress installation files. WordPress is available as a free and open-source software release under the GPLv2.
The WordPress installation files are available for download from the WordPress website. You will need to download the files to your local computer.
3. Install WordPress on your domain name.
The final step is to install WordPress on your domain name. You will need to unzip the WordPress installation files that you downloaded in Step 2 and then upload the files to your domain name. You can use a domain name registrar to help you with this process.
After you have uploaded the files, you will need to activate the WordPress installation on your domain name. Activating the WordPress installation will enable you to create your first WordPress website.
