WordPress

WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

Hosting

Some of the WordPress hosting options that we recommend

Digital Ocean
WP Engine
A Small Orange

We recommend using digital ocean hosting it has great support and you can be up and running quickly using one of their ready made WordPress instances. Check out this one click install tutorial.
