How to Create a Website / continuation 3
Step 2. Install WordPress
You will find tons of icons to do different things on your hosting account dashboard (cPanel). You’ll never need to use 95% of them, so you can safely ignore them.
Scroll down to the website section in cPanel and then click on the WordPress icon (this will be the same for most hosting companies).
Now you’ll need to enter your website name, admin username, and a password for your website. Don’t worry, you can change them later in WordPress settings if you need to.
You’ll also need to check all the checkboxes on the screen and then click on the ‘Install’ button to continue.
Quick Install will now start installing WordPress on your website. Meanwhile, it will show you some website templates that you can install on your site. You don’t need to do that right now because we’ll show you how to find and install free WordPress template on your website later in this guide.
Once the installation is over, you’ll see a success message in the top header.
Congratulations! You have created your first WordPress website. You can now head over to the WordPress login page. Your login URL will look like this: http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin
You can login to your WordPress site using the admin username and password you entered earlier.
