Requirements For Installing WordPress (CMS).

For Any WordPress Installation you need a registered domain name and a  good web hosting that offers a Cpanel option. These are some of the best web hosting companies that you can register with.

  1. Interserver.net
  2. Godaddy.com

  4. hostgator.com
  5. stormhost.com

I will recommend interserver.net because they have the lowest price when it comes to hosting the good news is their prices are locked and also gives free SSl for Https websites. 

Now lets start with our installation now that you have a domain name and a web hosting, we will first login to our control panel where we can locate the installation files. if you you don’t know how to find your Cpanel try these, example.com/cpanel and then login in with your Cpanel credentials or contact your service provider.
