If you’re planning on using WordPress.org for your new website, one thing that you will need to think about beforehand is hosting. In this article I will take you through the steps to set up your WordPress hosting with Siteground, my preferred hosting provider.
The hosting provider for your WordPress website, is the space where all the actual files that keep your site running are stored. There are lots of different hosting options, but the company that I use and recommend to my clients is Siteground. They are not the cheapest option available, but their customer service is excellent, they’re always really helpful if I run into an issue, and it’s solved very quickly. Which is what you want with your hosting provicer, there’s nothing worse than having to wait hours or even days for someone to get back to you when there’s an issue with your site.
It’s really easy to get started with WordPress, but before you do, you need to set up your hosting. Which again is a really simple process, just follow these steps:
Once you’ve got the initial set up, you want to install WordPress onto your site. Another really straightforward process.
Hurrah – you’ve set up your hosting and WordPress site!
Do a happy dance, and then get ready to think about the next step – picking a theme and creating your actual website!
