Well the first and most important resource is WordPress itself where you can not only download the software but also explore the free themes, plugins, the documentation, support and forum – anything that you could want to know will be within that website. Allow a few hours to browse, read and learn.
Please note that any links on this page that have * beside them are affiliate links – that means we receive a percentage of any purchase made from that link.
Hosting: our first recommendation is Ezpzhosting – affordable and reliable with brilliant customer service with servers in the UK and in the US.

For clients that we also host, we have a dedicated server and continue to enjoy the most amazing support from Dan and his team.
