Installing WordPress for in 5 Minutes!

Ok… sorry for the little hiatus folks – have been out of town on a golf trip to the RTJ Alabama Golf trail… If any of you play golf and get a chance to go – it is fantastic.

Anyways, if you recall we bought the domain and are going to make a site for it (and make a little money). So after getting the domain, I am now going to show you how to set up simple wp hosting for our site.

I am choosing to build the site on a platform called wordpress which is the easiest way to build a professional looking site these days. In addition to using wordpress, I am also just choosing to host the domain at Godaddy as well. This makes the process simpler – which is nice on your first site. Here is a little video I did showing how to set up wordpress hosting quick and easy…

How to setup WordPress hosting on Godaddy in 5 minutes:


So, if you are following along and building your own site with us on the challenge here, then here is a link to the wordpress Godaddy hosting page. If you already have a hosting account it is a little different setting it up – but still not difficult.

I will be making lots of shorter posts on these site setup topics in the next few days – so watch your inbox if you want to follow along.

Also, I would recommend a couple of things. Subscribe to the blog via the RSS link at the top – you can just do the EMAIL subscription choice and it will send you an email any time a new blog post is up. I will be doing another video explaining how all this works.

Second, make sure to like our facebook page as we will be putting a lot of the videos up there and it can be more of a real time conversation about the topics.

As always feel free to ask any questions in the comments section below!

I have a word press site already but thank you any way! For products and information about healthy foods and their benefits. Go to my website!

Hey Jgodbolt… hopefully some of the next posts will be very helpful to you then! On these first few posts it is hard to know how much people need me to explain. So, I am going to just explain everything I think people will want to know.

To your success with your site,

I just did this for my website. Thank you. It was really easy. Now onto the hard part I suppose. I hope Wordpress will make it easy to design my site. I think I want to try to do this myself without any outside help.

That’s great Lauren :)

There are lots of “themes” for wordpress that make it really easy to design your site. I will go over them in a video soon!

Good luck and all the success in the world to you!
