Register free domain at CO.CC - Free Domain name registration + Free DNS service.

Put your server details there

1. Download the software.

    I personally recommend wordpress. get it from here

2. Create WordPress database and user in MySQL

    In your control pannel find MYSQL databases

    Create a new database .

    Create a new user

3. Configure

    Open the downloaded file in first step

    Rename the wp-config-sample.php file to wp-config.php

    open it using notepad

   

/ ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
/** The name of the database for WordPress */
define('DB_NAME', 'database_name_here');

/** MySQL database username */
define('DB_USER', 'username_here');

/** MySQL database password */
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password_here');

edit the "****_here" fields according to details you provided earlier

If you want to skip 3rd step then follow this step

4.upload the files to your server

If you placed the WordPress files in the root directory, you should visit:

http://example.com/wp-admin/install.php
If you placed the WordPress files in a subdirectory called blog, for example, you should visit:
http://example.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php

this page will show up

fill in the details and you are done :)

5.  if you did 3rd step continue from here

upload the files using any ftp client (i used FileZilla)

6.  Your site will be up :D
