Whether you ever intend to buy your own names or hosting, all participants will benefit from an introductory course in WordPress website development and management – content creation, templates, plugins, widgets, users and security. WordPress is free software and throughout the course participants will actively create their own free WordPress website with free hosting (which can be exported and imported to paid hosting at a later stage if desired).
