is WordPress Compatible With a Mac Computer?

When working on a WordPress blog, it’s important to make sure that the main device you’re using can actually access your WordPress blog’s dashboard. I mean, how will you be able to work on your blog in the first place if your device can’t access it?

So, can it?

Assuming you’re using hosting services such as Bluehost, yes, you can use and work on your WordPress blog on even on a MacBook Pro, iMac, or MacBook Air. Fortunately, as long as your device has an internet connection and has a decent internet browser like Chrome or Safari, you can work on your WordPress blog.

Can I use my phone instead?

You can use almost any device to work on your blog; and yes, you can even use your Apple or Android smartphone or tablet if you want to work on your blog on the go.

And if you don’t have internet connection on your device when you’re out, you can simply write your blog posts on your favorite notes app temporarily, and simply copy-paste the content to a new WordPress post later.

Hosting your WordPress website on your computer

We heavily don’t suggest self-hosting as it can be quite technical and complicated, and that your website/blog will have significantly higher uptimes(a lot fewer chances of your website being offline due to bad internet connection or power outages) when hosting your website through services such as Bluehost. On the other hand though, if you’re a developer and you definitely know what you’re doing, you can refer to this article: How to Install WordPress Locally on Mac using MAMP
