The basic of WordPress

As I’ve told you that WordPress is the most popular blogging platform, so you can blog smoothly on this.

 

There are two versions of WordPress – WordPress.com and WordPress.org

 

WordPress.com is a free blogging platform that will let you create free blogs. You will only get sub-domain on this free platform where the common main domain is WordPress.

 

So, if you create a free domain named xyz on this platform, then you’ll ultimately have a blog named xyz.wordpress.com.

 

WordPress.com also offers paid options where you’ll get the main domain such as xyz.com, but the hosting will still remain on WordPress.

 

Most bloggers don’t like to run their blogs on WordPress.com because of the limited customizations.

 

WordPress has the other version which is WordPress.org that’s the most popular for blogging. A blog made on WordPress.org is called the self-hosted WordPress blog.

 

With WordPress.org, you can choose your hosting and domain as per your wish. So, the ultimate customization facility can be achieved through using WordPress.org.
