Learn How to Install WordPress with SiteGround’s Hosting

Hi, today I want to show you how to install
WordPress with SiteGround. Back in the day, installing WordPress or similar
content management systems was an absolute pain as it involved creating MySQL databases
and transferring files via FTP clients. Luckily most providers now have an easy-to-install
process that will make it straightforward, even for beginners.
SiteGround is a hosting provider that offers many WordPress-focused features. For example,
they come with built-in caching and image compression to speed up your website. Installing
WordPress is, of course, made easy, too. From your dashboard, head over the ‘Websites’
tab and click on ‘Add New Site’ in order to install WordPress. You’ll be given 3 options for your new site:
Use a new domain Use a domain you already have in your SiteGround
account Or use a temporary SiteGround domain name If you choose the last option your site will
be hosted in a domain like this one. I’m going with this option as this will be a test
installation. Because we are installing a brand new site,
I’ll choose the ‘Start New Website’ option. I don’t need an online store so let’s
install WordPress without WooCommerce. Finally, set up your WordPress admin user
and password and click ‘Continue’. The next step is to add any extras you may
need. Since I don’t need anything else, I’ll click on ‘Finish’. In a couple of minutes, SiteGround will have
installed our new WordPress site. Here we go, our WordPress site is ready! Head over to the WordPress admin dashboard
and login to start working on your website. If you are a beginner you might wonder where
to start. That’s why SiteGround comes with a simple Starter plugin to help you with the
first steps. This Starter plugin will suggest a couple
of templates you could use and recommends some plugins that will be installed directly
on your WordPress site. Personally, I prefer to do things the traditional
way so I’ll click ‘Exit’ and we’ll be redirected to the WordPress dashboard. That’s it. You now have a WordPress site
up and running. You should pick a template, install the plugins
you are planning on using, and start uploading your own content. If you need help with any of this, make sure

luck with your WordPress site. If you find this video useful, let me know by giving it
