Please don’t get WordPress hosting from wordpress.com. This is not compatible with Lay Theme.
If you don’t have webspace already, let me recommend these hosts.
Their cheapest offers will do and they all come with a free domain name. What’s most important, they have 1-click installers for WordPress which will make the installation really easy.
Install WordPress in your webhost control panel with their 1-click WordPress installer.
Purchase Lay Theme. Download the .zip file and unzip it. You will get lay.zip which is the theme and other addon zip files like laytheme-carousel.zip.
Log in to your WordPress at “http://yourwebsite.com/wp-admin/”.
You can now enter your license key in “Lay Options”→“License Key”.
If you have not received a license key after purchase please take a look at your spam folder. If you cannot find the key there, write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In that email let me know what email address you used for the purchase so I can find your key.
Now install the Addons you want to use:
Repeat these steps to install more Addons. Please note that when activating the fullscreen slider addon, it will already be active for all of your projects, thus changing scrolling behaviour and placement of elements.
If you want to hide your website while you are building it, you can use a plugin like Password Protected.
