Three Steps To Your Free Setup

1. Pick a Domain Name

Think of a word that you want to be part of your domain name.  Type it into the white space provided and click on the blue “Search Domains” button.

You will be presented with many possible names. All of them are .coms.  Select one, write it down, then return here and proceed to the next step.  Write down “WordPressForge.com” while you are at it so you don’t get lost.  You can easily return to this page by clicking on the “Get Started” Tab on Your Browser.
