Every year, independent and expert developers compile reviews that help
rank the top WordPress hosting companies based on different needs of site owners.
You can find solid hosting options starting at just a few dollars a month and
going up from there.
When you sign up with these companies, you will also have the option to choose
a domain name for your site, if you do not already have one.
Once you have a hosting account,
you will have access to what is referred to as one-click installs.
These let you enter in the basic information for
a WordPress site, like the name of the site and
your login information, and have a WordPress site up and running in minutes.
If you want to try out just playing around with WordPress, we also have work spaces
at Treehouse that let's you launch a ready to go WordPress site to learn with.
For example, in the video notes you can find login information for
a practice WordPress workspace.
