You have your domain and hosting, let’s get WordPress installed.

[box type=”tick”]This is a follow-up post to Domain Registration and Website Hosting and is based on that domain and hosting set up. It’s a reseller account through GoDaddy.[/box]

If you have another 5 minutes, let’s just get WordPress working on the domain and hosting you just purchased. It’s as easy as:

  1. Log in to your new account.
  2. Go to your Account page.
  3. Scroll down to Hosting and Economy Linux.
  4. Click Launch.
  5. Choose the domain you just bought.
  6. Enter user name, password and email.
  7. Wait maybe 10 minutes.
  8. Go to your domain, log in, and you’re up and running!

That’s about it! Keep that user name and password in a secure place and make sure your WordPress user name and password are difficult.

It's about as easy as point and click and you're up and running with WordPress.
