Building fully customisable websites
If you want to build a WordPress website and have full control over customisability, you can use WordPress.org. Although WordPress.org is completely free to download and use, you will have to pay for your domain (web address) and hosting yourself, as well as for certain plugins or themes. Depending on the providers you use, the cost will differ. We recommend the following hosting companies if you’re based in SA:
Basic websites with limited customisability
If you want to build a very basic website and aren’t bothered by having a lot of functionality, you can use either the free option or one of the paid versions of WordPress.com. The paid ones include a domain and hosting, so you don’t have to worry about that.
Only want a blog?
If you only want to have a blog and aren’t really bothered by advanced customisation and plugin freedom, this course is probably not for you. Head over to our other articles to learn more about using WordPress.com for free blogs.
Keep the following in mind:
- If you just want to play around and learn how to use WordPress without spending money, you can consider installing a desktop server. This will be discussed in Volume 4 of the course.
- If you want to use specific themes or plugins, it might cost you extra. There are many free themes and plugins, but just keep it in mind.
- If you sign up for the course, we suggest watching all the videos before starting with anything, and then working your way through it again while setting up your own website.
- Also, just keep in mind that the content of the videos shows an older version of WordPress, so there might be slight differences in how WP functions when you follow the presenter.
