How To Make a Website: A WordPress.org Blog in 10 minutes for $5/month
A wordpress.org blog is created with hosting on a Linode virtual private server (VPS) in less than 10 minutes. I show how to create a website which includes: A “one-click” VPS+Wordpress setup, attaching the domain name to the IP & setting up free https (SSL) using Certbot (letsencrypt). I teach by example: I set up my very own WordPress.org site for grokshop.tv. This is my first experience with WordPress or WordPress.org, however I have many years of professional website development experience & know how to make a website in many different ways. This solution is “unmanaged”, so basically that means – they won’t hold your hand much or at all. But, its also generally cheaper than a manged solution. If you need any help, just ask!
