In this blog, we will discuss a complete step-by-step tutorial to install the WordPress tool to manage your website. Additionally, as always we will also explain the important theories of WordPress to our beginner readers. So let’s start-

What is WordPress and Why it is Used?

Let us be precise and to the point in this blog, WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) that allows you to build and host your own website(s). WordPress offers you plugin architecture and ready-to-use templates for building professional-looking websites. Also, using WordPress you can build your own-

  • Websites
  • Online Stores
  • E-Commerce Platforms
  • Blogs

Moreover, WordPress offers two types of plans- a Free Plan and a Premium Plan. You may choose as per your needs and budget. Let us now move to the next question. What WordPress is Used for? Well, WordPress has the following uses-

  1. It helps you build websites.
  2. Then, it enables you to host the website that you have built.
  3. Also, you can customize the website as per your business needs.
  4. You can check for the SEO-friendliness and readability of the website and its content

Moreover, you can understand WordPress Development as the act of installing software that helps you build, develop, customize, and host a website. And there are two types of WordPress installation methods-

  1. Building a free website with WordPress.Com
  2. And, secondly using WordPress.Org for a third-party host.

Confused? Well, let us explain

What is WordPress Org V/S WordPress.Com?

Don’t worry! There is not much ado about WordPress.Org and WordPress.Com. Actually, if you are a beginner then you must know that many professionals prefer web hosting services from third parties like-

  • Bluehost

  • GoDaddy

  • HostGator

  • WP Engine

  • Kinsta

And many others. Third-party hosting is used by professionals who have specific requirements in terms of website speed, appearance, mobile responsiveness, size, and some other technical features. However, if you are a beginner or non-IT individual who wants to run your own blogs or online stores, then the free version of WordPress is sufficient for your needs. So now let us explain the free version first-


If you are a beginner who wants to have your own website but does not have the core technical knowledge about hosting and purchasing a domain, then choose WordPress.Com. WordPress.Com is a complete package for the beginner’s website. And remember that beginner’s website does not mean that it will not look professional or will have development flaws. In fact, it is like leaving everything up to WordPress and focusing on the business. However, you may not find fancier templates, bug fixes, SEO analytics, readability scores, online payment collection, and others in a free plan. But if you want a simple and beautiful website, then a free version will be best for you. In fact, if you are about to start your blog, then WordPress free plan is just made for you. To install WordPress this way you will need to-

  • First, go to
  • Then, create a login account. You may use your existing Google or Facebook account.
  • Alternatively, you can also manually sign up with your personal E-mail ID and password.
  • Next, you will be redirected to the welcome page-


  • Then, simply click on ‘Start your website.’
  • Afterward, you will get the option of choosing a domain name for your website. Just use the keywords. For example, if you want to build a website on Makeup review, then use the keyword ‘makeup review’ and WordPress will automatically suggest you the domain names. However, Appinnovix will suggest you use the website title you have decided as the keyword in the domain. It is a special SEO tip from us!

Now when it comes to content management (CMS) tools like readability and SEO analytics, you will need to install plugins.

But remember that Plugin tools are not free of cost. You will need to pay monthly, half-yearly, or annual fees to run the plugins. Also, the plugin tools will require periodical renewal. However, if you are already aware of the Yoast SEO and readability guidelines, then you will not need the plugins. But if you still feel under-confident in your content readability and SEO friendliness, then we will advise you to get Plugins for your website. Here is how to install WordPress plugins-
