How to create a WordPress site or blog in the next 10 minutes?
If you are accustomed to cPanel, then you will have no problem using A2host cPanel, but if you are new to it, this step by step tutorial will help you in this.
If you have purchased the domain name from elsewhere, you need to point NS to A2Host name servers which are:
Once you have updated the nameservers, or you have used the same domain name that you had when you purchased the hosting from A2host, you can simply start with WordPress installation on A2Host hosting.
Login to your A2Host cPanel account using the domain name and password received at the time of SignUp.
A2Hosting offers two site builder scripts to install WordPress: simple scripts and WordPress. I am not going to discuss the pros and cons of any of them, because you can choose any of them to start with WordPress in 5 minutes. For simplicity of this tutorial, we will use the Mojo one-click WordPress installer. It is free and makes it easy for everyone to quickly create a WordPress blog.
Click on Install WordPress under the Website tab under the A2Hosting dashboard. (See screenshot below)
Click Install on the next page and it will take you to the final WordPress installation page.
Here you have to select the domain where you want your WordPress blog. You can place your wordpress site with www or without www. I would advise you not to use www.
Once you complete the above step, the next step will be to configure options like WordPress admin login and password. Other options, such as blog name, you can always edit them under the WordPress dashboard under Settings> General. Also remember by default the email address of your Bluehost account will be your admin email address. (Email address you must have used at signup)
Click Install now and hold your excitement for 2 minutes. Once the auto-installer completes its joe, you will see the top bar like or similar to the image below.
Click on View credentials and on the next page you can see your WordPress login details.
On the next page you will see the status by doing your wordpress installation and once it says, you will see http: // domain in your wordpress dashboard . You can login by typing com / wp-admin (replace domain .com with actual domain name). Your own WordPress dashboard will look something like this.
Do you know the WordPress dashboard makes it easy to publish your posts and manage the blog?
Now what you need to do is delete sample posts and comments, change the pemalink structure and start blogging on WordPress by configuring other essential settings.
Such easy and quick installations also help to make WordPress the most popular blogging platform and CMS in the world.
