How To Install WordPress On Hostgator | Hostgator
WordPress Install Tutorial Hey guys, Bryan with WP Cupid Blog and today
I’m going to be showing you how to install WordPress on Hostgator step by step in this
Hostgator WordPress Install tutorial video. I’ll be providing you with a 60% off hosting
promo code shortly. Make sure you subscribe to our channel as
we are always posting new WordPress tutorial videos. In this video, I’m going to be going over
four different steps to install and setup WordPress on Hostgator. Step 1 is how to sign up for an account with
Hostgator, step 2 is choosing a hosting package, step 3 is registering a domain name, and then
step 4 is how to install and setup WordPress on Hostgator so you can start making a WordPress
site with Hostgator. The awesome folks over at Hostgator have provided
me with an exclusive Hostgator coupon consisting of 60% off Hostgator web hosting. I provided the link to Hostgator in the description
along with the Hostgator coupon code for the 60% off offer. The 60% off hosting coupon is CUPID60. A little disclosure, the link is an affiliate
link. I’ll receive a commission which helps support
this channel and helps us put out WordPress tutorial videos on a regular basis. Some awesome features you will get with Hostgator’s
hosting is a 1 click WordPress install, 24/7 support from Hostgator, they also have award
winning support, they offer a 45 day money back guarantee. You’ll also receive over $200 in advertising
offers from Google and Bing. Hostgator is one of the top web hosting providers
and Hostgator powers over 8,000,000 million domains worldwide. Feel free to click the hostgator link in the
description to walk through the steps with me to setup wordpress on hostgator. Once you click the link you will see Hostgator’s
web hosting page like you see here. Keep in mind Hostgator does change their landing
page quite often so if it looks different don’t worry. The remaining steps after this stay the same. You’ll see a get started button. Click the button. You will see three different plans you can
choose from. The Hatchling plan, the baby plan, and the
business plan. The plan I recommend going with is the Hatchling
plan. You can have one domain name with this plan. You can always scale up to one of the other
two plans if you need too. If you have more than one website you will
want to go with the baby plan as this includes unlimited domains. The business plan comes with unlimited domains
as well and includes a few free addons such as Free SEO Tools, Free Dedicated IP, and
Free Upgrade To Positive SSL. Go ahead and select the hosting plan you want
by clicking the buy now button. You will now be on a page where you want to
choose your domain name. Type in the domain you would like to use along
with the domain extension for example .com, .net, .org, etc. I recommend going with a .com if you can as
this is the most common domain extension. If you already have a domain name just click
on the I already own this domain and put in your domain name. When you select your domain name to buy Hostgator
will say if it is available or not. If it’s available it’ll say available. If it says unavailable it will say unavailable
like you see here. If your domain is unavailable trying adding
the, a hyphen, or changing your domain extension. You will see domain privacy being selected
for your domain name purchase. It’s completely up to you whether you go with
this addon or not. Domain privacy protects your personal information. It’s very common without this selected telemarketers
and spammers will call and email you quite often. If you go with domain privacy Hostgator’s
default contact information will show so you won’t have to worry about spammers. Once you decide on that we want to choose
our hosting plan. Just make sure the package type is the correct
plan you want. Next you want to choose the billing cycle. You can choose to pay monthly, every 3 months,
6 months, 12 months, 24 months, and 36 months. You will see you will save the most money
the farther out you purchase your Hostgator hosting for. I’m going to show you how to get hosting even
cheaper than what is listed in just a second. Next, you want to enter your username. Pick anything you would like. Next just enter your 4 digit pin. Make sure to remember this as this is used
when you need to talk to Hostgator support. Next you want to enter your billing information. Over on the right hand side you will see where
you can put in your card information or you can pay via a Paypal account. After you input this infromation go to the
next section where you can add additional services if you would like too. Next, you will see https SSL Certifcates. This is a free Hostgator addon and it makes
your site secure and all sites should have an SSL Certificate. You will see protect your site from hackers. This addon monitors your site and lets you
know if a hackers gets into your site and places a virus or malware to your site. Next, you will see get professional email
from Google. I’d unselect this as you get free email accounts
with your Hostgator hosting. Select this only if you’d prefer to do it
via Google. Next, you will see back up your hard work. This will create a backup of your site. This can come in handy if you make a mistake
or something happens with your site you can with a click of a button backup your site
to a recent previous version. Next, you will see improve your search rankings. I’d recommend you unselect this as this just
gives you insights into your site and rankings. All of these add-ons are completely optional
and up to you to get. You can always upgrade to an addon at any
time. Next, you will be at the enter coupon code
section. You will see a Hostgator promo code automatically
entered. Keep this coupon code if you are purchasing
your plan for 24 months or greater to get maximum discount. Replace the promo code that is there with
CUPID60 to get the greater discount for monthly plans up to paying for a 12-month term. Now, just scroll down and accept the terms
and conditions and click the checkout now button. You will now be directed to a thank you page. Hostgator will now email you your Hostgator
receipt and your Hostgator CPanel login credentials. Once you get the email just click the link
and login to the Hostgator CPanel. Once you are logged in we want to install
WordPress. You will see one click installs. Click this and we want to choose WordPress. Next, you want to choose your domain name. You can pick it from the drop down. Leave the box next to it where it says directory
blank. Now just click next. Now, it will say Blog Title you want to put
in the name of your site here. Enter the admin username, password, and other
information to use for when logging in to WordPress. Next check the automatically create a new
database and check the you agree to the terms and conditions. Once you do that click the install now button. You will now be redirected to a installation
complete page that lists out your WordPress login credentials. Now you want to enter your domain name at
the top of the search engine and put a /wp-admin. Just like you see here. This will take you to the WordPress login
page for your site. You will receive an email with a link from
Hostgator with a login url as well. Once you log in you will be in the WordPress
dashboard where you can begin in creating your site. That is how to install WordPress on Hostgator. Alright guys, thanks for watching. That is my Hostgator WordPress Install tutorial
