So what I’m gonna do now is show you how to set up GoDaddy hosting and do the automatic WordPress installation. So the first thing we’re gonna do is get the discount on our hosting for godaddy.

Once we get here I’m just going to click on the GoDaddy offer and that’s gonna automatically apply the discount for us. Now we’re gonna jump right in and start setting everything up.

Okay, guys. So the first thing we’re going to do is click on this green get started button. And this is where we’re going to choose our free domain name. So whatever you want your website to be called, you can check here to see if it’s available. And once you decide on the name, you can just enter it here.

I’m going to enter mine. And now I’m going to click on search to see if it’s available. Okay, it is. So I’m going to click on select and continue. And as you can see, our promo code has been applied to our entire year of hosting. So we got the discount, which is cool. And now we’re just going to click on create account.

All right, and now we’re going to fill out this form for our Go Daddy account. And some of this information is going to be blurred out just for privacy reasons obviously. But all we’re going to do is enter our email address.

If you don’t have one, I just recommend maybe going to Google and signing up for free Gmail account. And then you’re going to come up with a username and a password and then also a pin number. And these can be anything you want. Just make sure you guys save all this info somewhere, so when you need to log in to GoDaddy, you can.

So now I’m just going to enter in my information. Okay. And then after we have all that filled out, we’re just going to click this green ‘create account’ button. Okay. Now I’m just going to put my billing info in. All right. And once that’s all done, we can go ahead and click on save.

Okay, now I’m going to be using a card to pay. They also have Paypal too. You guys can choose any method you’d like though. They’ll all take us to the same place in the end so it doesn’t matter which one you choose. All right. Now my payment info is in, so I’m just going to click on this blue save button.

Then we’re ready to complete the purchase, so we’re just going to click on this green button here. All right guys and that’s it. We got our hosting now and we’re ready to move on to the next step. Okay, so what we’re gonna do now is click on this blue add site button.

And then we’re just going to leave everything like it is, build a brand new site and then wherever it’s recommended you can just put it there. And now we’re going to come up with a WordPress username and password. So just like for the other stuff, just come up with a username and a password and then make sure you save that information somewhere.

Okay. And then after you do that, you can just click on add. And this is just currently installing WordPress for us. All right. And that’s it. WordPress is installed. That’s the simple one-click WordPress installed right there for ya. And now we’re just going to click on this blue WP admin button.

And then once we get to this page, just go ahead and click on “no thanks”. And that will just automatically take you to your WordPress dashboard. And this is the place where you go whenever you want to edit your site.

Okay, guys. So before we do anything, we’re going to go verify our email from Go Daddy. And so we’re just going to go to our email accounts and there should be an email from Go Daddy that says please verify your email address and here’s mine. And just click on verify email now.

Okay, and that’s it. It’s been verified. Okay, now I’m back over on my WordPress dashboard and I’m just going to refresh this page right here. And then after you do that where it says no, just click on “change domain”. And now click on add domain and find your domain right here. Mine’s already selected and make sure this is selected.

It says make this primary domain for the account and then after you have everything selected, hit add. Okay, and we’re just going to wait on this to update. It just takes a couple of minutes. All right, now that’s been updated and what that just did is change the location of everything that we’re going to be making on our WordPress website.

So it’s no longer to this FTP upload site. It’s now going to all be on our main domain. Okay, guys. And now I’m going to show you how you log into your WordPress account anytime you need to edit something on your site. So what we’re gonna do is open up a new tab and then you’re going to take your website and you’re going to put it in.

Then you’re going to put /WP-admin after the.com or.net, whatever your domain is. And then after that, click enter. And then when it comes up here, all you do is put in your account information that you created earlier. So again, it’s just your domain name /WP-admin anytime you want to log into your WordPress account.

All right, so I just put my information in. Now I’m just going to click login. And now this will take us right back to the WordPress dashboard. And now we can finally start building the actual site in the video below!
