We already have a hosting package with 123-reg. But having just viewed your WP installation guide, I realise that that our hosting package does not contain a control panel etc for WordPress. Can I create the WordPress website locally (on my mac) then upload all the files to my hosting ftp site? I have already installed MMAP
Yes you can do it this way…but you will still need to install WordPress on your hosting account first, then you will need to upload your database, plugins and theme to your hosting server.. So it will make your life easier to build your site on your hosting server to start with.
