The Easy WordPress installation just got easier!

by Melissa Smich on October 19, 2009

WordPress is a very popular blogging and content management application. They are also well known for their simple installation process. And with our Application Installer it makes it even easier to get your new blog up and running quickly. Follow these steps below and you’ll see it’s a piece of cake to get started!

Log in to your control panel with your domain name and password.

If you have a Linux hosting plan, you’ll see a “Linux Hosting” section on the upper left of the screen.

Then under the “Web Site Tools” section you’ll see the “Application Manager”.

To select WordPress, click on the GO button on the right side.

Then you can click on the “Continue” button to proceed with the installation. A new window will open with the name ”Wordpress Installation”. Determine the sub-folder to install your blog to. Say you have the domain name “fredd.com”; Do you want to use “fredd.com/blog” or choose something else like “fredd.com/my-life/”.  If you want the blog to be the main part of your website, leave the field blank and it will install it on the root of your website.

You can also choose some plugins to install automatically, as well as a few WordPress Themes to get started with.

Now your WordPress installation will begin as the files are copied directly to your web hosting account.

This does seem very easy. Is Tumblr harder to set up?

Tumblr is easier to set up, but WordPress has a lot more useful features, especially for online businesses.

This is very easy, considering all you can do with the program.

WordPress is simple to use as well as install–a great choice for any newbie blogger.

i agree, potsnpans. i’m not even sure i would’ve stuck with blogging had it not been for wordpress’s easy-to-use features.

It’s certainly easy to install a WordPress blog. It’s also very easy, I might add, to create your own website using WordPress — shockingly easy, I’d say.
