Let’s discuss today and have a practical on how to install WordPress and creating a blog site. It’s in fact very easy you just need a small guidance if you are not much familiar with it.
Today we are going to install my WordPress and creating a blog site on cPanel of the HostGator hosting which I have taken a year ago and my site ask-techbulu was hosted however as its not generating much lead. So I am going to remove it and will install a new WordPress site with the same domain name i.e ask-techbulu.com.
As we have already discussed in my last two tutorials you would be requiring Domain name and hosting which you can choose from any of the companies like GoDaddy, HostGator, BigRock and Bluehost, all of them are in the market from long time. Creating a blog site with a good theme is our main purpose.
Steps we are going to follow for a perfect and fast blog site will be:
- Install WordPress
- Changing the Theme
- Installation of Relevant plugins (All in One WP Security, Contact Form 7, Jetpack, Yoast or Squirrly, Updraft, WP fastest cache, WP Mail SMTP and WP Smush)
- Creating Pages (About US, Contact Us)
- Creating Categories
- Creating Menu
- Understanding Sidebar, Header and Footer
- Creating Posts (Discussion in detail)
So let’s get started and creating a blog site.
