There is no doubt that WordPress is the most popular free blogging service currently floating in the market. There are millions of WordPress users in each and every corner of the world. There are a lot of chances that you might also have a WordPress blog related to some of your favorite niche. Also, there are a lot of chances that you might have dreamt of having a WordPress blog with your own domain name. There is no doubt that domain name is a great way to express your blog, its niche and its business. Similarly, you will need a web hosting plan to host your WordPress blog. So, there come a number of techy things to deal with. Though this all is quiet simple, but it becomes simpler if someone teaches you. In this article, I’ll help you people hosting your WordPress blog.
The very first step should be buying a domain name for your WordPress blog. Go to “Godaddy.com” and start entering hundreds of thousands of domain names. This is because GoDaddy is one of the largest domain name registrars and all of the popular domain names have been sold many years back. Anyways, keep on searching different names. Try to register a domain name which includes the keywords of your website niche. This is very necessary to get a good page rank at Google and other search engines.
Once you have completed the domain name registration process, click here, and sign up at the world’s best web hosting service – HOSTGATOR. The reason for getting “only” this web hosting is that it is one of those few web hosting services which offer WordPress blog hosting. The sign up form will ask you for the few basic things in your payment method. Once you have completed the sign up process at HOSTGATOR, just log in to your Control Panel. When you have logged into your control panel, scroll down the page. You will see a section entitled: “Software/Services”. There you’ll see an icon entitled “Fantastisco”. Fantastisco is basically a ‘system’ which interlinks your hosting service (HOSTGATOR, in this case) to your WordPress blog.
When you have clicked the “Fantastisco” icon, you’ll be taken to a new page. There, it will be written “Wordpress” on left hand side. Click “Wordpress”. After that, click “New Installation”. After that, you’ll be taken to a new page, where you’ll be asked to enter the domain name which you want to associate with your WordPress blog. There you’ll have to enter your domain which you bought at GoDaddy. Once you have associated your domain name, go to “Admin Access Data” section. This section will ask you to choose a username and password for your WordPress blog. Fill in the entire base configuration for your WordPress blog and press “Install WordPress” button. Click “Finish Installation” on the next page. Wait for few minutes and you’re done!
