How to install your WordPress Blog via your C-Panel

By

Ok, by now you will have followed the first steps to creating your blog…. so again well done 😉

I have created as promised a video tutorial showing you how easy it can be to install WordPress via your C-Panel…

After watching you will see how something that seemed like a difficult task is actually easy to do ….

but as I always like to provide valuable snippets of information, you will also see how to set up a professional looking email address ….

Most people will have generic email addresses, maybe like tommy@gmail.com or tommy@hotmail.com , which is ok, however appearance can be everything and small things can make a difference when it comes to presenting yourself to the online world 😉

I am sure you would agree that support @ tommy-mclaughlin.com or support @ yourdomain.com not only cosmetically looks better but I would say it automatically installs a sense of confidence in the subscriber or reader?

Which do you prefer?

You are now well on your way to getting your first post under your belt on your new blog, I will be posting another video tutorial in the next day or so, showing you step by step how to upload themes and plugins to your blog to help you get the most out of Worpress.

As always, feel free to comment and let me know if there is anything else you would like covered.

    Hi Tommy,

    Thanks for your leaving a response to my comment on Dean’s blog re google analytics. I sorted now, I found a pluggin that did the job quick and easy, I will post it on my blog.

    No, I’m not the Mark Austin from Canada, I’m just outside London, Uk. Now I know why markaustin.com or anything similar was impossible to get!

    I see you are using the same theme as me, another John Thornhill fan?

    All the best,
    Mark

    hi tommy–

    i have a couple of questions…

    1. how did you get your catagories to list like they are with the nuber of articles in each one? i would like to do that for my blog instead of having them all together.

    2. i having trouble uploading my files from filezilla on to the internet.
    the problem is when i look at the side for my computer, i see my product from alex, but i do not see my ebook or my websites, so i can not load them onto the internet.
    do you know what the problem might be??
    thanks for your help,
    mandy

    Hi Tommy,
    I was trying to follow your advice last night. I went to namecheap and bought a domain name (.ca) Now what do I do? I know I need a web host but I don’t know how to do it. webgator seems to only be for .com, .net, .org, etc but not .ca Should I get the hosting service from namecheap? Please help. I’m a super newbie and feeling totally lost.
    Thanks,
    Sarah

  7. @ Sarah –

    It is hostgator I talk about, if you follow these steps, you will be fine:

    1. goto http://www.hostgator.com
    2. click ‘sign up
    3. select ‘I will use My Existing Domain and update My Nameservers only.’
    4. type in the first part of your Domain in first box in second smaller box enter the prefix – ca
    5. click ‘next
    6. in the coupon box – type wordpress (your first month is 1 cent.)
    7.click next
    8. continue through enter name address etc
    9. click verify order
    10. you are done 😉

    Once you recieve your emails from Hostgator, see the link below that will show you how to change your nameservers:

    The video tutorials on my blog will show you how to install wordpress.

    Any other questions then please let me know

    Thanks

    Tommy
