So you've probably heard that it's so much better to have a self-hosted WordPress website than it is to have something like WordPress com Wix or Weebly or Blogger but now you're wondering how do I set that up? In this video I'm going to show you how to set up a self-hosted WordPress website using NameSilo and SiteGround Alright guys so we're all set up here we've got our stopwatch over here on the left and I'm open to the NameSilo website
I'm gonna just click this little start button right here and we will be off to the races All right so the first thing I'm going to do is search for the domain name that I want and I know that this is available because I recently searched for it so I'm gonna click the dot-com box if you want any of these other domain extensions go ahead and click that I'll click "register checked domains" okay and all I'm going to configure over here is to set the privacy setting to "WHOIS privacy" and then I don't have a coupon code so I will just click "Continue" Alright so now we have to actually create a new account Okay, now I'll click "Create my new account" hopefully that will work and it did so for my payment let's just fill all this in Alright now I'll click "Place my order" and we should be done at least we're done getting our domain name
Alright so it says your order has been processed click here to manage your domains so I will click here and there we go here's my new domain name So I'm in my account right now I'm not gonna close this window 'cause I will need something from it later
I'm gonna open a new window and now I'm going to set up SiteGround So I'm gonna go to SiteGroundcom and look we're only at 3 minutes now I'm gonna go to "Get Started" under Reliable Web Hosting You can actually go to Managed Web Hosting – it's going to take you to the same page if I'm not mistaken so I'm gonna sign up for the startup plan you can get the grow big or the go geek but since this is just a tutorial I'm gonna sign up for the cheapest one because I don't want to have to you know spend more money than necessary just for tutorial so I already have a domain so that's what I'm gonna put in right here now that's the one I just bought and I'll click proceed and off to fill in all my information again I'll have to fast forward so that you're not so bored okay so now I'm going to just sign up for the trial for one month but if you are setting up an actual website not just a tutorial then you should probably select 12 months all right so um I will confirm that I have read and agreed to the SiteGround Terms of Service I do not need news and special offers because I already get those And
awesome so we're at what maybe five minutes and almost 30 seconds and so far we have already bought our domain name and signed up for SiteGround The next thing we're gonna do is actually set up our WordPress site so now I'm actually going to click this little button right here that says "Proceed to customer area" and I am going to start a new website Okay
Thanks, guys! 'Bye!
