How to Sign Up For WordPress – a detailed guide
WordPress is a website that provides open source blogging services. It is one of the most popular blogging services in the world thanks to its no frills design and simple yet intuitive interface. Making an account on WordPress is easy! Here’s how you can make one:
Step One: Go to WordPress.com
First of all, make your way to the wordpress website. You can find it by typing www.wordpress.com in the address bar, which will take you to a page that looks like this:
Step Two: Fill the form
Click on “Create Website”. That will take you to a webpage that looks like this:
The process is simple: just fill the form by putting in the correct information in the spaces provided. Start with your email address (make sure it’s the correct email address, as WordPress will send you an activation link that you’ll need to open to start using your account!)
Now think of a username. You can change it at any time so don’t worry too much about it. Think of a good, secure password, something that is easy to remember but difficult for someone other than you to figure out.
Finally, think of a blog address. This will be the address people will use to find your blog! So, for example, if my name was Matthew, my blog address could be
A .wordpress.com domain name is free, but you can get a .com website for $18 per month.
Step Three: Choose Premium or free
Scroll down to the bottom of the page. You can see the benefits having a premium or business account, and also how much each of them cost. You can try one of them for free, buy one right off the bat, use the basic version before upgrading or just use the basic version for free (depending on whether you chose a .wordpress.com domain name, which is free, or a .com which costs money). It’s totally up to you!
Finally, check your email. You will have gotten an email from WordPress. Activate your account using this email and you’re good to go. That’s all there was to it!
