How To Install A Domain Name Into WordPress



The easiest way to install WordPress is to login to your C-Panel (control panel) of your webhost and you can choose Fantistico to install WordPress.

That is all for the basic explanation and let's get this into practical on how to install a domain name into WordPress.

1. Webhosting

You need to buy a website hosting service. I strongly recommend Hostgater which start as cheap as $4.95 per month. If you are a beginner in this thing, I would recommend you to use a Baby Plan which is just $7.95 per month. I have been using it without any problem and their support are really good.
Here are the main benefits for using Hostgator Baby Plan:
- Unlimited Domain
- Unlimited Disk Space
- Unlimited Bandwidth


2. Domain Name

You will need to buy a domain name. If you are very new to internet marketing, you can buy a domain name from the webhost company itself. Of course, there is a more cheaper places to buy domain names like GoDaddy or NameCheap.However, you have to learn how to transfer your domain name pointing to your webhosting server. If you buy your domain name directly from you webhost, you can skip this step.
