I'm just setting up a complementary health business and have bought .co. and .com domain names in preparation for creating a pretty basic (free) website (very simple, a few images, about 5 tabs along the top of the page). I don't yet have hosting. I've registered for a wordpress account but what I have appears to be a blog so I think I need to download from wordpress.org. rather than wordpress.com? My question is this: after downloading the latest wordpress release, what do I do to get to a point where I have something to edit? I have downloaded wordpress and have files on my computer but I don't know what to do now to get going. Do I have to open something up? Do I need to have hosting in order to start building a website, or can I create it on my computer and then upload it to my host when I have one?
Please be gentle with me; I don't know any tech-speak as you can tell and this really is Greek to me.
Thanks for your time and your patience.
