In less than ten minutes, he’ll explain
- Domain Name

How to Create a Website or Blog: Review
The only difference between Daniel’s steps and mine is that he uses Fat Cow instead of Blue Host as a web host and he uses one of the free WordPress.org themes called Bold R Lite instead of BookSnapper, which, for a small fee, is customized especially for authors.
He also gets a bit ahead of what I’ve covered so far by taking you through a few steps in customizing your site. Don’t worry, we’ll get to selecting your theme, customizing your site, and writing your first blog post later. Plus much more.
I suspect that Daniel’s video will reinforce all the steps and decisions you’ve made so far.
If not, watch the video a second time and a third. It’s only 6.4 minutes long.
