I wrote content for my "home" and "about me " pages based on previous responses of experts from here.
I also bought my domain name from namecheap and the business plan hosting from Hostgator as suggested by experts here.
Next, I want to install Wordpress. When I browsed through the posts here, I read conflicting information.
Some posts said "not to install WP via hostgator's fantastico others said "installing WP via fantastic is the way". One said, it is easy and the other said it is hard.
I read here that I need a FTP Software to upload / download files from / to my host Server and my PC.
I read people suggesting Filezilla. I went to the Filezeilla.org site and I see two options:
Filezilla Client and Filezilla Server.
1. Which Filezilla should I get, client or server?
2. Should I go the easy way to install WP via hostgator's fantastic or the hard way of downloading the WP from Wordpress.org and install it myself. If you suggest to go the hard way, can you warriors provide step-by-step instructions?
3. Should I install WP at mywebsite.com or mywebsite.com/blog? Is it easy to create a sub-folder from HG's cPanel?
4. If I install WP at mywebsite.com/blog, how should I post content on the home page and the other pages that are not under subfolder "blog", can I use WP for that or another HTML editor and upload from my PC to my website's non-blog subfolders?
Sorry to ask so many questions. Trying to get my feet wet with technical details now and ready to learn the HARD way if I have to and that is what best for me.
