    I don't get it? Add my domain? I don't have a website, that is exactly why I want to use WordPress… Do I make a domain on or what?!

    Add tags "manual wordpress installation" and "no cpanel necessary". I watched over 4 hours of videos not knowing I needed to install using FTP. Awesome video. Great voice over, no shitty background music, information well explained and to the point. I wish I could up vote it more so it were higher is search results.
