  1. Yes (and maybe no). Do not confuse [Wordpress.com](https://Wordpress.com) with the open-source [wordpress.org](https://wordpress.org) framework. The most common way is to download the wordpress package from [wordpress.org](https://wordpress.org) and install it on a local server with XAMPP, MAMP, WAMP, or similar service, but you can also install something like Local by Flywheel, in which you can create and build WordPress installations locally in seconds.
