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.
You’ll then be asked to enter the title of your Blog and your email address. When done, click “Install WordPress”.
WordPress will thenl provide you a username and password. A copy of your information will also be emailed to you. Note them carefully for future reference. Then click “Login” to get started…
You may be asked for your username and password, and then you can login and get started configuring and writing your new blog!
