Let’s get into it!
Part 1: Set up website hosting
The first thing you have to do to set up your WordPress website is buy hosting.
You can use any hosting provider you want, but the one I’ve been using is Namecheap, and in my experience they do have the cheapest hosting and domains.
You can use my affiliate link to sign up for them here:
Once you sign up, click on “Hosting” at the top and then “WordPress Hosting”.
Here you can select your pricing plan and I suggest that you start with the Turbo plan so that you can get the free SSL certificate.
This will make your website secure so that you don’t see the big “Not Secure” in the URL bar of your site… you don’t want to scare visitors away!
Follow the prompts and click “Next”.
Let’s move on to the next part of this tutorial in how to set up your WordPress website.
Part 2: Set up your (optional) domain
Although it’s recommended, if you aren’t sure whether you want to invest in this yet or not, a domain is optional and you can proceed without one.
You will be taken to an EasyWP site, so just fill in the blanks here, enter your site name, what your site is about and then you will have the option to select your domain.
You can either use the default domain provided to you for free, buy a domain through Namecheap, or transfer an existing domain you have elsewhere.
If you want to buy a new domain, simply head back over to Namecheap.com, go to “Domains” and type in any domain that you want. You can get one for as little as $1 a year, so it’s definitely really cheap.
Regardless of what you choose, you can proceed here by clicking “Next” and now you just have to wait until the WordPress installation takes place.
This can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes, so don’t worry if you’re stuck at a loading screen.
Once you do that, we’re ready to go to the last part of this tutorial on how to set up your WordPress website!
Part 3: Finishing touches
Once WordPress gets installed, simply click on “Admin” and you should be taken to the WordPress dashboard where you can add new posts, pages, add new themes and customize your site!
If you want to add new pages like “Contact Us” or “About Me”, you would use the “Pages” tab on the left side.
If you want to add blog posts about various topics or niches, you would want to use “Posts”.
If you want to select your theme and then customize it, click on the “Appearance” tab on the left-hand side and play around with the settings there.
To access this WordPress site again, the easiest way to do so is to just remember “easywp.com” or save it somewhere, and you’ll be able to log in here with your Namecheap credentials anytime you want and access your site.
Super easy, you don’t get 10 emails sent to you with different passwords, and you can just focus exclusively on building out your site.
The support is also available 24/7 and is very good.
And this is how you set up your WordPress website in just 2 minutes and 34 seconds!
