  6.  Now select any of themes or just skip. Theme can be selected later if any of these does not suits your need. (Better to skip, just note name of theme if you like any of given).
  7. chose your domain. Like mine is “littlebyteblog”. Your domain will be extended with wordpress.com. If your chosen domain is not present, try something else. (if you just want .com or .net or .org without wordpress, then you have to select a upgraded membership).
  8. Select free plan or skip if there is no free plan option.
  9. Enter email id, username, password.
