Good evening Lindsay.
Thank you for your question :-)
I think it is great for someone from "a previous generation" to be willing to learn :-)
Basically there is two methods of using Wordpress, The first one being that you can map your existing domain registered with us to be pointed to Wordpress.com(mapping it to Wordpress.com)
The Second is, you can install Wordpress on to your existing hosting package (Linux Silver home) and customise the website from there. This option excludes the need for mapping to Wordpress.com.
Based on the second option, you can install wordpress from your cPanel(Accessible from the ClientZone) as explained below:
Navigate to the ClientZone from this link. Once logged in, click on Hosting > your domain > cPanel > Log into cPanel.
Once the cPanel page open, scroll down to the bottom of the page. Under the Softaculous Apps instraller, click on Wordpress. It will allow you to install wordpress directly in your hosting package with us :-)
The alternative to the above, is the Cm4All site builder. Building and maintaining your site is quite easy and straight forward and can be activated from the ClientZone.
Should you need any more information or assistance, do not hesitate to ask.
Enjoy the rest of your evening and good luck!
