Welcome to the world of WordPress! Whether you’re a seasoned web developer or a first-time website owner, WordPress has become the go-to platform for building beautiful and functional websites. In this quick and easy guide, we’ll walk you through the process of setting up your very own WordPress website in less than 5 minutes. So, grab a cup of coffee and get ready to unleash your creativity!
But first, let’s talk a little bit about WordPress. According to a report by W3Techs.com in 2021, WordPress is being used by 40% of the top 10 million websites in the world. As a powerful content management system (CMS), it offers a user-friendly interface, a vast array of themes and plugins, and the flexibility to create everything from simple blogs to robust e-commerce sites. With WordPress, you don’t need to be a coding expert to build a stunning online presence.
Now, if you’re wondering how to get started, you’ve come to the right place. We, at Cloudbase, are here to guide you through the process of setting up your WordPress website effortlessly. Our WordPress web hosting plans provide the perfect foundation for your online journey, offering reliable performance, and outstanding support at affordable pricing.
So let’s get started!
Registering a New Web Hosting Account for WordPress
Ready to embark on your WordPress journey? The first step is to register a new web hosting account with a web hosting provider. In this example, we will be using our system to demonstrate the registration process. Don’t worry, it’s a breeze! Just follow these simple steps:
1. Visit our website at https://cloudbase.my/wordpress-hosting/ and explore our range of WordPress hosting plans. Choose the plan that suits your needs and budget. We offer three web hosting plans, each with a different disk space that caters to different website requirements.
2. Once you’ve selected your plan, you’ll be directed to the registration page. Here, you have the option to either register a new domain name with Cloudbase or use an existing domain name. If you already have a domain, simply choose the “I will use my existing domain and update my nameservers” option. Enter your domain name and click “Use”.
3. Take a moment to review the summary of your order, ensuring that all the details are correct. Once you’re satisfied, click “Checkout” to proceed to the next page.
4. On the “Checkout” page, you’ll need to provide some personal details, billing information, and create a password to set up your new account in our system. Rest assured, our secure checkout process keeps your information safe and confidential.
5. It’s time to choose your preferred payment method. We offer options such as Credit/Debit Card or FPX (Online Banking) for your convenience. Select the method that works best for you, and then click “Complete Order” to finalize the registration process.
Shortly after completing the registration, you’ll receive an email confirming that your WordPress web hosting plan has been activated on our CMS. In that email, you’ll also find important information about the nameservers to use for your domain name.
To ensure your website functions seamlessly, log in to your domain name registrar’s account and update the nameservers according to the instructions provided in the email. This step ensures that your domain name points to Cloudbase’s servers, enabling visitors to reach your website.
Please note that it may take some time for the changes to take effect due to a process called DNS propagation. This period typically lasts 48 to 72 hours, during which your website may be temporarily unavailable. Once the DNS propagation is complete, your domain name will be successfully connected to Cloudbase’s servers.
Stay tuned as we guide you through the next steps: the simple process of installing WordPress on your domain name.
Installing WordPress for Your Website
Now that you have your web hosting account set up with Cloudbase, it’s time to install WordPress and get your website up and running. Don’t worry, the process is simple and can be completed in less than 5 minutes. Just follow these steps:
1. Start by logging in to your web hosting account at https://cms.cloudbase.my. Once you’ve successfully logged in, you’ll be directed to the client area, where you can access your services, manage account details, and make payments for your hosting plans.
2. In the client area, locate and click on “Log in to cPanel”. This will give you access to the control panel, where you can manage various aspects of your websites, including DNS settings and email accounts.
3. Now that you’ve logged into cPanel, look for the “WP Toolkit” option on the left menu. Give it a click, and you’ll be on your way to installing WordPress effortlessly.
4. At the next step, you’ll find a button that says “Install” or “Install WordPress”. Go ahead and click on it to initiate the installation process.
5. You’ll be presented with a list of installation options for your WordPress website. Here, you can customize various settings to suit your preferences. For example, you can select the language in which you want your website to be displayed. It’s always a good idea to choose the latest WordPress version available for better security and up-to-date features. You can also set up the administrator account for your website, including the username, password, and email. If you’re an advanced user, you have the option to configure database settings and automatic updates. Once you’ve configured everything to your preference, click “Install”.
6. Sit back and relax while our system takes care of the installation process. It will proceed to install a fresh copy of WordPress and set up the necessary database based on the configuration options you selected.
7. Once the installation is complete, you’ll have the option to install additional plugins and themes to customize the appearance and functionality of your website. Feel free to explore this option later if you prefer.
That’s it! You’ve successfully installed WordPress on your domain name. Now, you’re all set to unleash your creativity and start building your website. If you encounter any issues during the installation process, contact us and our friendly support team will be glad to assist you.
