So you’ve decided to set up your WordPress website. Go you! You’ve created your hosting account with one of my favourite hosting providers, Netorigin, by using my step-by-step instructions in this post. And now you’re wondering how to get your new website up and running. It’s another simple process, I promise!
- Log into your Netorigin account
- Navigate into Services
- Head right to Actions and click cPanel (control panel)
- Click on WordPress under the Featured applications and click install
- Next you will see the form for selecting WordPress options:
- Add Domain. This is where your website is going to be installed to, for example, website.com.au.
- Choose the recommended WordPress version.
- Choose not to automatically update
- Add Administrator log in details (and take note of them!)
- Add your email address for Administrator email
- Add Website Title as the name of your business. Add Tagline
- Limit login attempts
- Choose No for multi-site
- Choose Automatically manage for Advanced Setting Management
- Click Install
- Click on your website address, add login details.
And you will arrive at your brand new website! The next step is setting up your website with themes and plugins.
p.s. I do receive a small affiliate commission should you use Netorigin, but as I use them for my websites I totally, 100 percent trust them.
