Installing WordPress on your own website means using a tool provided by your web hosting account. Don’t worry, it’s all automatic, it only takes a few minutes and you only do this once.
May new bloggers are intimidated by installing WordPress on their own website and that’s why some end up on very limited sites like “WordPress.com” where you can’t do everything you want.
You want to have your own website and install the full WordPress right on to your own site.
You don’t need “WordPress.com” or “WordPress.org” — you just need a tool that’s included when you get a good web hosting account.
Reliable web hosting for a decent price *ad
First, log in to your web hosting account. Then go into the CPanel.
Look for an icon named “Softaculous.” Click that icon.
Click where you see WordPress (or the WordPress logo). You should see a menu with an “Install” link on it. Click that Install button.
Select your website address in the dropdown menu.
Be sure the section that says “In Directory” is blank.
Scroll down and choose a unique username (not “admin”) and set a strong password.
Scroll down and click Install.
That’s it. You only do this once and now everything else will be done from the admin interface of your own WordPress site.
