But first… Why WordPress?
WordPress is by far the easiest platform to use for blogging. I know there are many other platforms out there like Ghost and others.
However, WordPress beats all of them. If you have another software in mind, go ahead! It shouldn’t stop you from success.
WordPress is known as the most popular blogging platform and content management system. It’s also well known for its ease of installation and usage!

All best WordPress web hosting companies allow you to install WordPress with few clicks. In most circumstances, installing WordPress is a simple process that takes less than five minutes to complete.
What do you need before Installing WordPress?
Installing WordPress with Softaculous!
Softaculous is the easiest way to install WordPress. In this video by WP Crafter, you will see exactly how to install it. Softaculous is provided by most major hosting companies including Namecheap, GoDaddy, SiteGround, Host Gator, inMotion Hosting and so on.
PS: It’s pronounced “Softa-cu-lous”. This guy is funny that way. Btw, you should follow him on Youtube (here), he’s such an amazing guy and taught me a lot of things!
