    I geniunely feel lost when it comes to that.

    I want to start up a shop with Wordpress and shit i am confused.

    1.Do i need to pay to wordpress to use it ?
    2.I saw i have a few plans there and the last one includes unlimited premium themes,Those are not every theme you can find out there right?
    3.If i buy just a wordpress theme,I can go from there for free?
    4.How customizable is wordpress in terms of design,I mean a theme is just like a skeleton no?

    This is seriously frustrating and i can't afford myself using shopify or something like that if i want a top level website.

    1. No, not unless you want to use Wordpress.com. I would recommend WP.org.
    2. You can find more themes, but again, I'd recommend using Wordpress.Org and buying a template from Themefores.
    3. Pretty much or you can use a nulled theme from BHW. There are free theme threads all over the place.
    4. A theme is like a skeleton with a designated look that's able to be customized.

    Shopify let's you have a free trial for like a week.

    WordPress is free from WordPress.org, you can go for the paid version but I wouldn't. Go to http://wordpress.org and look at the free themes, for now just look and familiarize yourself with it

    Hmm nice info here.

    What about the first steps?

    Start with a host, then i can build my wordpress inside it right?

    So before make the wp, i start buying a domain or something like it?
    Host?

    What u think about Poweruphosting, hear its $9/M and i can do multiple domains (looks like i can build more projects, its it right? )
    i feel lost in this part of the plan, can some1 give me a light? Thank you.

    1. Buy a domain.
    2. Buy hosting and set the DNS of your domain to your hosting.
    3. Use an autoinstaller on your Hosting cPanel to install Wordpress.
    4. Yes, you can have multiple domains on one hosting account as long as that is one of the features of the package you bought.

    No you just pay for commercial plugins.
    Simple steps:
    1. Get domain and badass hosting.
    2. Install wordpress.
    3. Buy Premium Theme like x theme,avada or enfold
    4. Install woocomerce and all the plugins you need. maybe you need to pay for some good ones.
    5. Run the world! :D

    hmm..
    X theme has even it's own host so its optimized for their theme and scripts and support will be good as f***
    I'm not from america but I think in USA Hostgator is a good one. But don't trust me on this point. Do reasearches and comparisons.

    You can use Wordpress for building a website with all the available themes and plugins. Wordpress plugins are basically widgets or tools that can help enhance your website and extend its features. It includes things like attaching a Facebook comment box, a direct tweet options, an audio player, etc.. Wordpress Themes allowed users to change their website as they saw fit; they could now change color, the layout, the design, the font and so much more.
