If your chosen hosting company offers QuickInstall, it’s super simple to install WordPress on your domain.
Here are the steps you will need to take.
1 – Log in to your HostGator dashboard and scroll to the bottom, until you find the “Software/Services” section.
2 – Click on QuickInstall and then choose WordPress.
3 – Fill out the form with your information. Make sure that if you are using WordPress to run your website, you leave the box after your URL blank. Click “INSTALL NOW”
4 – After WordPress has been successfully installed, you will see the following screen. Please take note of your LOGIN URL, USER NAME and PASSWORD. You will need these to access your new site.
And now you are done.
Log into your new WordPress site using the info from Step 4 and update your password by going to USERS on the left menu. Make your password something difficult to guess and NEVER use “admin” as a user name OR password 🙂
