Getting Started/Web Hosting

WordPress-Plugins

For assignment two I’m creating a wordpress.org site before beginning  I had to look up all the requirements to actually start.

Here are some sites that I found useful for setting up and also as a sort of reference point that you can check all the stages.

This is like a wordpress guide for dummies, it outlines all the stages of creating a wordpress site and also recommends certain plugins and provides other useful tips. Would really recommend checking out their “comprehensive checklist”.
