You will learn how to download and install the software needed to build WordPress websites offline on your local computer. Once you have built a WordPress site you will learn how to download and install a plugin that will enable you to compress the local WordPress site, and then migrate it to an online hosting server. Occasionally with the plugin method you may run into migration problems with some host providers. You will learn a second method to migrate your WordPress site manually without using a plugin. This second method is a little more complex as it involves exporting and importing your databases, but it is a failsafe method that should work with all hosting providers.
