Getting your hosting is a very important part of the process of setting up your own blog or website. It will only take a few minute to get set up and it's an easy process. Here's how to make it all happen.
Start by choosing the shared hosting plan right for you.
Once you've selected the right plan for you, click on the, "Order Now" button and move forward to the next step.
You will see three options on the next screen. Select the one that fits best with your needs.
After choosing the domain name option you prefer, you will need to choose a billing cycle.
The semi-annual option will provide billing every 6 months, while the other options will be billed yearly, every other year and every three years.
Now you just need to click on the "checkout" button. You may get a pop-up asking you if you want to "leave the page" or "stay on the page." If you get this pop-up, select "leave the page" and you will be at the final screen for the sign up process.
Fill in the customer information, select a password, choose the payment option best for you and click "complete order."
Setting up WordPress Quickly
Setting up WordPress starts by logging into your Hostoople control panel. Find the Fantastico De Luxe logo and click on it. The logo looks like:
Opening Fantastico De Luxe will give you the ability to quickly set up WordPress on any domain name you want. Once it's open, you need to select the WordPress option on the left side of the screen.
Now, just click "New Installation" and you will be given a screen to finish the process.
You want to leave the "Install in directory" box blank. However, you need to choose a username and password. Don't use admin as your username as this makes your site very easy for hackers to get into.
You will also want to create a nickname, which should be the author name you want for blog posts, fill in the email, name your site and fill in the description. All of these you can change later if you want. Just click "Install WordPress." and you're done.
Now you are ready to build your website and/or blog on the WordPress platform.
