Now that you’ve registered a domain, it is time to set up hosting for your site.
The host is where your site will live. Just as I used GoDaddy as my example for a domain registrar, I will show you how to set up hosting with Blue Host, which is the company I used to host this site.
I am going to take you through six steps here:
- Setting up your hosting plan
- Connecting your domain to your host
- Installing WordPress
- Installing a WordPress theme
- Configuring WordPress
- WordPress Plugins
It’s all pretty easy – just a matter of clicking, copying, and pasting. And then, before you know it, you’ll have a live site.
