How do I install WordPress? Print

  • 0

We have made it very easy to install WordPress.

If you're expecting to see 'Install WordPress' in your client area dashboard, unfortunately we do not offer this feature like other hosting providers.

Why? Because those types of 'One-Click' or 'Instant Installs' will limit your control over the installation process.

By default, they typically assign insecure admin usernames like 'admin' and some may even use your hosting account username which is even worse.

Alternatively, you can log into cPanel and use the WordPress Manager or Softaculous script installer which includes a WordPress installation manager.

In your cPanel WordPress Manager, you can save time installing plugins by customizing plugin sets for your WordPress installations.

Note: Be sure to install into the root of your domain.

By default, the installer will want to place it in '', so remove /wordpress from the installation directory setting.
