What is WordPress?

WordPress is an opensource web software that allows a non-techy person to create a beautiful website or blog online with out the need to learn any coding. I used it myself for my online business www.mactanmosaics.com.

Do It Yourself WordPress.

You can get this service from bluehost.com or hostgator.com. Both are very reliable companies. By the way, I get a commission if you click and buy from either of these companies. Thank you!

Once I get a hosting account how do I install a WordPress Site?

Please follow the steps below. Its easy.

Step One.

Get a hosting account at bluehost.com. You may also check out hostgator.com. Both companies have a 99% uptime performance.

Step Two.

Log-in to your cpanel account or dashboard.

Once you are logged-in, look for “simple scripts” or “quick install” for hostgator.com.

Click “simple scripts” to install your wordpress blog website. You will be presented with a lot of scripts on the next page. Select “wordpress” under BLOGS.

You will be redirected to a page that will look like this below.

Click “install”. Then follow the instructions. It will take less than 5 minutes to complete the process.

And that’s it! You will receive an e-mail confirmation about the new wordpress installation. Your wordpress website has an admin dashboard that will allow you to customize the look of your website using the built-in themes included on the installation. You can add as many pages or blogs as you want and there are no limits.

If you want to look for theme options that will fit your industry better, you may check-out www.templatemonster.com. They have thousands of wordpress designs and tons of services for a very affordable price. They do offer a custom work service called “template tuning” for a very affordable rate.

I hope I was able to help with the wordpress installation instructions above. Feel free to leave some comments below.
