How to Setup a WordPress Blog – Step by Step for Beginners 2017
Hello. Paul here from Teachmor.com. In today’s tutorial, I want to show you how to build a WordPress website, step by step, using the simple Blue Host WordPress one-click install. There’s two things that are required for this. First, you’re going to need a domain name. This will be the name of your website. I prefer Namecheap.com for this. The second thing you’ll need is a hosting account. I prefer Blue Host if you’re just starting out.
You have two options when buying your domain name. Option number one, you can get it from a domain name register like Namecheap or Go Daddy. Option two, you can pick up you domain for free for the first year when you sign up for a new hosting account over at Blue Host. However, if you go this route, it’s a bit more expensive to renew every year and it doesn’t include the free privacy protection that Namecheap does, which is why I prefer Namecheap.
If you want more information on why I prefer Namecheap, you can find the video I created, either on my blog or my Youtube channel. If you bought your domain name from Namecheap or another domain name register, the first thing we’re going to have to do is switch the domain name servers from that domain name register over to Blue Host. I’ll walk you through this step by step.
Once that’s done, the second thing and the last thing we have to do, is we simply need to install WordPress onto out Blue Host hosting account, which I’ll show you as well. The good news is the entire process can be done in under ten minutes. I’m going to walk you through installing a WordPress website using Blue Host, step by step.
Let’s get started. The first thing we need to do is, we need to log in to our domain name registrar to change the domain name server over to Blue Host. I’m going to use Namecheap for this, but the same applies no matter what domain name register you’re using. It can be GoDaddy, or any other one. Let’s do that now.
By the way, if you haven’t signed up yet you can sign up here. It’s a pretty self-explanatory process. If you need any more instruction, I actually created a video that you can find on my Youtube channel showing you how to do this. It’s pretty self-explanatory. Once you’re done signing up, you’ll have a username and you’ll have a password. You’re simply going to log in.
Once we’re logged in, I’m going to head over to the domain name that I want to install WordPress on. If you remember my last video, I actually picked up this domain; which is Buildyourfirstblog.com, which will be used for a future challenge i’m about to create. You simply head over to the manage button, click it, and this is where we’re going to change our domain name servers over to Blue Host.
I’m going to scroll down a bit just so it’s more centered. As you can see right here, it says name servers and there’s a drop down arrow. We’re going to hit the drop down arrow. We’re going to click custom DNS. This is where we enter the Blue Host name servers. Blue host is NS1.bluehost.com and NS2.bluehost.com. We’re going to hit the save button.
