Installing WordPress is a straightforward process.
Before installing the WordPress on your webhosting site, you need to add domain name to your webhosting site. In my case, I am using SiteGround and GoDaddy.
I recommend SiteGround for hosting, since it is fast, secure and have outstanding support.
Watch the Video below to see how to.
Inside your domain control panel (cPanel) search for WordPress. If you are using SiteGround, you will find it under cPanel WordPress Tools.
Click Install and choose the directory you would like to install your new WordPress blog. If this a new domain most likely you leave the directory blank so the blog will be installed on the Home Page. (YourDomain.com) Enter your blog title and tagline. You can easily change this later. Choose a username and password. Do not use admin as the username as it’s easily hacked. Enter your admin email address which can be used to reset your password. Everything else is optional. Click Install.
Once installed you’ll be directed to your blog or a page with the login URL.
WordPress Setup and Settings
Log into your WordPress blog and go to updates.
Update any current plugins and themes. The trick to a hassle-free WordPress blog is a secure password and keeping your plugins and themes up to date.
Inside your WordPress Dashboard go to Settings > Permalinks and change common settings to “Post Name”.
To change your homepage go to Settings > Reading. Here you can choose your latest blog post or any age you wish.
Themes and Plugins
There are thousands of plugins and themes for various uses. We recommend only install the plugins that you need. Installing dozens of plugins often leads to the website slowing down or causing issues.
