Installing WordPress

Once you have your domain and hosting, you now need to install the WordPress site. Remember, WordPress operates a platform that allows you to access your site’s content on the web with a limited to non-existent knowledge of coding.

The benefit of using a service like WordPress is that they add all the code you need to your site to make it functional from day one.

All you need to set up your WordPress site is upload this program onto your hosting.

WP Engine has a quick install program to help you upload WordPress in less than two minutes. The basic install provides you with full access to your WordPress dashboard and a basic blog to use for your business.

When you do the install, make sure to write down the login link and your user and password, so you can access the WordPress Dashboard.

As we discuss in the next section, using WordPress is easy once installed. Use a good hosting service like WP Engine just makes the process easier.
