In the previous tutorial, we have seen how to buy domain name and web-hosting. This post will guide you to create WordPress blog within 5 minutes.
There are many web-hosting available over the internet and BlueHost is one of the best quality hosting provider. Techrrival.com is hosted on Bluehost from the beginning. One of the major benefits that you will get from Bluehost is performance.
Note: Here I am using BlueHost shared hosting, but this tutorial can almost be applied on any web-hosting supporting One-Click Installs.
Steps to Create WordPress Blog on BlueHost in 5 Minutes
Self-hosted WordPress is the best platform for starting a blog. Bluehost offers standard cPanel which comes with one click installers of many scripts including WordPress. Now let’s get started :
Login to your Bluehost hosting account. After logging in click Hosting on the top menu and then click cPanel in the submenu. Scroll down to website builders. There you will find an option to Install WordPress.
After clicking Install WordPress, a new tab will open and you will be redirected to WordPress one click install page. Click Install.
Now select the domain on which you have to create a wordpress blog and select the directory. For example, if you want to access your wordpress blog at www.yourdomain.com then keep directory empty. Similarly, if you want to access your wordpress blog at www.yourdomain.com/blog then type blog in directory box. After filling the details click Check Domain.
Type name for your new blog, username, and password. This username & password will be used for logging in to WordPress admin dashboard. I will recommend you to choose username other than ‘admin’ for security purpose.
Check Automatically create a new database for this installation & their terms and conditions. Then click Install Now.
You will find your wordpress installation status on the top of the page.
After installation completes, you can access your site at www.yourdomain.com and wordpress dashboard at www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin
