WordPress is the most widely used blogging software out there. It provides the backdrop to some of the most visited blogs and websites. Though some of you think it can be hard to learn how to use WordPress, I assure you it is not. If you are interested in starting a blog, then the video below will show you exactly how to do it. The only caveat is that you have a web host that provides you with Cpanel. I believe that most Unix/Linux hosts install cpanel on their servers, so you shouldn’t have a problem. If you are looking for a host to start a blog on your own domain, then look for one that has Cpanel.
If you are not sure what Cpanel is, then I will just give you a quick run-down. Cpanel is like your website management console. You can add email addresses to your hosting account, create new subdomains, add new domains to your account. You can create new databases and add cool features like WordPress. Cpanel is your instrument panel for website management. The best part about Cpanel is that you can install WordPress with a few easy steps through a great add-on called Fantastico. It usually comes with Cpanel, but if your host does not have it, then you might want to ask. Below is the detailed video of how to install WordPress through Cpanel.
