Can I use WordPress just to build my website? I have a domain and server already

  1. I already have a domain and server. I would like to use WordPress just to build it, using the templates you have. Is it possible to do? If it is, how can I do that? Build, and then transfer it to my own domain?

    Will I have to pay for something? How much?

    Thanks,
    Lucas Guterres

  2. You can get the software here free:

    http://s.wordpress.org/

    Some webhosts have Installation scripts already in place.

  3. Sorry, I downloaded and didn't understand anything. It was a folder packed of php files. Have no idea what is that.

  4. That's why you should be on the other site I posted.

    Those questions cannot be answered here on this board.

  5. The forum for that site is here:

  6. Please read this about the different types of WordPress:

    If you want free hosting on a stable platform and have not much experience with coding and so on, then you can use your domain name with a small fee to map it to your blog here:

    Once you get going with wp.com and comfortable with the lingo, then you can export your wp.com site to your host and use wp.org free software.
