WordPress is much more than just a website builder - begin to discover the possibilities for yourself today as you learn how to put together great websites that are both flexible and powerful.
This introductory course introduces you to the full version of WordPress, shows you how to set up a live "test" website for nothing, and then gives you a complete website template to work with.
Within an hour or two you could have your first website up and running, ready to build into your unique piece of the web.

You also get access to my valuable WordPress resources to help you as your website grows, including niche research, keyword tools, hosting services and much more.

Before we set up our first WordPress websites, we'll take a look at some Hosting Service Providers and what they offer.
