Okay, right out of the gate (despite the whole point of my attempts to build a website) it is not possible to have a hosted website for free. I’ve tried all sorts of different ways to do it, but if you want your own domain e.g. “www.robkirkpatrick.com,” you’re going to have to spend some money.
Once you get your own domain, I can start helping you save money – at least for a little while. I’ll get into DNS management, web hosting, and then WordPress. Remember, I’m not a professional. But you might just be able to get a live website up and running through this guide.
