1. Intro

👋 Hello! In this tutorial i'll be showing you how to create a website with WordPress (a Drag-and-Drop Self-Hosted Website Builder) and using your own domain for FREE, then you've come to the right place! We'll be setting up a domain, getting hosting, and creating a website.

THIS METHOD DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE.

2. Obtaining a Domain

Let's get started! Open Freenom in your browser, and log in or sign up. Its free. Once you're at the dashboard, go ahead and register a domain. You'll see something like this:

Then join our Discord Server. You'll receive your login details there. If you don't have a Discord account, create one.

4. Setup your Website

Let's login to cPanel. Once you're in the control panel, go to Softaculous and click WordPress. (or WordPress Manager)

Then fill in everything. Make sure you set In Directory as nothing. Click "Install" when you're done.
