What Is WordPress And How To Install WordPress

WordPress is both a blogging platform (located at WordPress.com) and also a self-hosted website creation software package that you can download and install to create your own custom website – you can find the download and more detailed information at WordPress.org. This duality between these two entities is what most often confuses people when it comes to WordPress, but in web development circles we are usually talking about WordPress as website creation software rather than the free blogging platform.
