This lecture is produced in three different formats: HD Video, Mp3 and Pdf. Just scroll down if you wish to download educational material.

For this tutorial, we are going to take a look at how to buy  domain name.  Now there are lots of sites that will allow you to buy a domain name.  We’re going to be using GoDaddy.com, but other sites include name a namecheaps.com, bluehost.com, and many more.  So let’s go ahead and take a look at our front page here and see what kind of specials Godaddy is offering us.  Along the top, we have domains, hosting and servers; we’ve got storage, web design, how to generate income, web-based e-mail, SSL Security, auctions, and My Account.

Now I am not logged in yet, but we’re going to take at that in just a moment.  When you scroll down, you’re going to see a box that says “search for new domain name”, and we are going to look for a domain name that we want to use.  And in this case, it is going to be Wordpresstutorialhub, and at the end it says dot com.  Now you can use the drop down box, and you can choose .net, .org, etc.  You can use any of these tags afterwards.  And once you find one you want to use, click on “go”.  So right now this is available, and it shows us the different options that they are offering.  Right now it is $12.99, and you can click “add” and it will go into your shopping cart.  You can also choose to add an addition to .com, .co .net, .info, etc..  The .info actually comes free with your .com with a special they’re running right now.  So choose any tags you want to use.

It also shows you other variations you may want to consider.  So you may decide to use one of these instead, if you don’t want to use your original, and it shows you the price.  It shows you premium domains you may want, and these are all using more expensive because they are more likely to have people do searches on these particular word sequences.  Underneath, you may see a country or region domain that you may want to use, and then again underneath it has additional pricing for additional tags.

So I’m just going to choose the one we originally put in, Wordpresstutorialhub.com and I’m just going to click “add”.  You can see that it has popped up over here in my shopping cart.  We’re going to continue to registration.  Now notice in red it says that you can get bulk pricing, and if you do that you can add five more domains and it will lower the price of each domain name.  But let’s click on “continue registration”.

It now has another window that has popped up that shows us that we can get three more or that you can get five more.  You may decide that you want to get these names so that if people put in these word combinations with these tags, they will end up coming to your site.  And it will show you how much you can save at the bottom.  Or you can click on ”no thanks”.  If you are already a customer, you can go ahead and log in.  If not, you can go ahead and create your domain registration information.  First name, last name, e-mail address, address, city, country, state, zip code, and phone.  You can tell all of these are required because they have a red star after them.  So go through and fill out all of this information.  Since I already have an account, I’m going to go ahead and log in.  And click “next”.

On the next page, it’s going to take us to our domain registration information.  It will show us what our domain name is, and we can also view or edit it right underneath, and then it will ask how long we want to register with this name.  I’m going to buy it for one year.  Next is going to ask if you want to certify the name, or keep it uncertified.  If you certify your domain name, it certifies that your website name belongs directly to you, rather than a hacker.  It will also display the certified name seal on your site.  If you’re going to be hosting your domains elsewhere, you can set your name servers in the next box.  And you can include free auto-renewal protection if you want to click right here.  Right now it’s set to free auto-renewal, but you can change this by clicking.  You can click here for product disclaimers and legal policies, click on three for your privacy and domain protection.  And we’re going to use the privacy with business registration, because we don’t databases to find us quite yet until we get the website built.  So I’m going to click “select”.

And you can see again, this has popped up our shopping cart.  Next is activate your domain.  Right now our e-mail address is inactive, but if we want to activate our e-mail addresses, which would be, say, your name at Wordpresstutorialhub. com, you could click here for five or 10 e-mail addresses with unlimited storage, or you can get their complete e-mail package.  This is only $5.49 a month but you can also choose these other packages.  Almost all sites are going to offer these types of packages.  If you want to add hosting, you can also choose a hosting plan.  As you can see here they offer two hosting plans: the web hosts economy for $4.74 a month, as well as the web hosting deluxe plan for $6.64 a month.  And you can also choose other features for your site, which include an SSL certificate, which guarantees your customers information; a search engine enhancement, which is $35.88 a year to bring more traffic to your website, and a shopping cart that allows you to put 20 products in your catalog for $9.49 a month.

I’m happy with what I’ve already chosen, so I’m simply going to click “next”.  The next stage is my shopping cart.  This will show my domain name and any other details that I chose.  Once again it allows you to add matching domains and it also allows you to choose a private registration service or a business registration service.  Once we have everything we want, we’re going to go ahead and click on “continue to check out”.  I’d like to use Paypal to pay for this site, and it will ask if I want to use my saved Paypal profile and I’m going to click “OK”.  So now, as you can see, Wordpresstutorialhub.com belongs to me and a no one else can buy it.  So I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and I hope it helps you get through the process of purchasing your domain name.  We will see you next time!

Hi in this tutorial, we’re going to take a look at how to buy your web hosting.  And the web hosting is where you are actually going to have your web sites home.  So all of your files will be in this server, just like they would be on your hard drive.  For this one, we’re going to use blue host dot com, and I’m going to actually put in a special address up here that will allow me to buy my hosting for a lower price.  And it’s WWW.blue host dot comtrackspecial bonus.  And I’m going to go ahead and click enter, and it will take me to a certain page. 

This page is going to allow me to buy my web hosting for $4.95 a month, so this is a savings of $2.00 a month.  This will also have all the features that come with this web hosting.  It will also show you other services offer by the hosting company, such as their 800 numbers, how to resell for web hosting, and how to actually use your Cpanel, which is what you’ll use to build your site.  And then down on the bottom, that we have one click script installs.  So if you want to use any of these, you would just click on them.  That would be Wordpress, june law to recall, etc. 

For the moment, we’re just going to go ahead and buy are hosting.  I’m going to click sign up now.  First, you need either tell if you have a domain name or if you need a domain name.  I actually already have a domain name, so I’m going to type in right here.  However, if you need one, this will allow you to type in the domain name, choose dot com, .net, or any other ending you want, click next, and it will tell you if your domain name is open, and if you can buy it.  I already have a domain name, so I’m going to go ahead and put it in and I’m going to put it in as illustrated underneath, which is just the name of my site, which is Wordpress tutorial hub dot com, and I’m going to click next.  If I have any questions, you can start right here to chat with one of their customer service representatives, or you can call them at these 800 numbers.  I’m going to go ahead and click next. 

Now I’m actually going to be transferring my domain two blue host, because I’ve already gone the domain name and the domain I had no one is Wordpress tutorial hub dot com.  You can also choose .net, dot org.info or Dobbins,.  Each of these additional domains Kos $11.00 ID 5¢, Siew can add those on if you don’t already on them.  Next I’m going to fill out the account information including my business name if I have one, my first and last name, my street address city state zip code, phone number, and e-mail address.  You can also put in your mobile number if you wish. 

If you’re out scroll down you see you can also choose their pro package, which includes faster speed, more power, and better security, which it plus it’s only in 1995 a month instead of the normal price of 2495.  Siew can choose that option as well.  Underneath that, as our package information, whether you want to start with three years, two years, one year, or if you just want to do AVG pro for 12 month price for 1995 as explained up in that box above.  We’re going to go ahead and buy for 24 months.  You can also choose the site like domain security, and the site backup pro.  To find out more information about the nose, you will just click and those boxes.  Again, you can read all about information about those options, chat with a live person, or call the rate hundred number. 

Funny are going to go down to billing information and it will bring up the billing information or you can click on more payment options and decide to pay with plate play and pay with paypal.  I’m going to be using a MasterCard for this account, so I’m going to be using the drop down next to card type, put in MasterCard, fill out my credit card number, expiration date, and then the three digits.  Cut on the back the card.  Once that is done, I’m going to click on I agree to the terms of service and cancellation policy.  Always read those before you click them because you’re basically giving in your signature the brat them.  I’m going to go ahead and put my information and now.  Next it’s going to ask for the upgrade to suit my needs, including additional domain names as I discussed before, and it also includes available domains that are close the name I’ve already chosen, and if I want to search for register he domains register, I can do that as well. 

For additional domain names their $11.00 Monday 5¢ per year.  For the big sender’s e-mail attachments, this allows me to put the files into the cloud and send them through e-mail.  This goes up to two big gigabytes.  If you decide to use the service, it costs a 95 a month and it will add it to your card.  You can also back up your pro with your site backup and restore toll, which is 1295 year period that can vary will be worth it, especially if this is the first website you put together just to make sure you don’t lose your website and that it’s always backed up correctly.

How to get webhosting for your Wordpress website Preview 07:00

Instructor: Penny Peters

This lecture is produced in three different formats: HD Video, Mp3 and Pdf. Just scroll down if you wish to download educational material.

For this tutorial, we’re going to take a look at how to change the domains DNS. And the DNS is the address that the web servers will try to find to locate your web address.  Right now we bought our web hosting on Bluehost, but to show you this particular tutorial we’re going to change the DNS on GoDaddy, which is where we bought our original domain name.  As explained on the other tutorials, most of the sites have the same Cpanel or control panel setups, so no matter which one you bought, they should have basically the same thing.

First, I’m going to go ahead and log into my domain.  Once I am into FoDaddy, I’m going to go into the domain dashboard of the page I’m trying to work on, and this one is Wordpresstutorialhub.com.  I am going to scroll down, this gives me all of my domain information, my domain enhancement and related products, and below right here you see it says DNS, the nameservers’ or the DNS manager.  The DNS is the domain nameservers’ manager, and right now this gives you the information you need on the DNS. Over here you see it says NS05.domaincontrol.com. This allows me to set my nameservers or to manage my DNS records.

Now if I want to, say, used the Bluehost hosting that I had gotten earlier, I can go into the domain manager, pull up my nameservers tab, and it shows me right now what my DNS is for the site, which is NS1.Bluehost.com.  And it also shows my IP address.  So let’s say we actually had bought our web hosting on GoDaddy but bought our name from Bluehost. So what I would do to choose the nameservers would be either to click to set nameservers and click if you want to park your domains, forward your domains to your correct website, if you have a hosting account with domains, or if you have specific nameservers for your domains. 

Let’s say that I want to redirect from the web site at host my name to the actual website that I have on my hosting.  I click I have specific nameservers, and you’ll see that it comes up with a combination of letters and numbers, then the name of the site dot com, usually in nameserver 1 and nameserver 2. If I go to Bluehost and look into my nameservers, it will give me an as 1.Bluehost.com and ns2.Bluehost.com, and that’s what I want to change mine to.  So I’m going to right click, hit copy, go back into my domain manager, go into the nameserver, and I’m going to paste, either by right clicking and hitting paste or control+V or Command+V, depending if you have windows or Mac, and I’m going to grab the second one as well and make sure that I’ve got the correct nameservers under my nameserver box. You can also can add more if necessary. Or as I said, you can forward your domains. 

So let’s say you have an old domain and you want all of your addresses to forward to your new correct website, and you can also click on that, and it will show you how to forward your domain so people will be taken to your correct current site, and then you can click ok. Once that’s done, it usually takes between two hours and two days for your nameservers to be set correctly, but that will ensure if someone comes to your web site’s name they will be taken to your current site.  And you can also click on manage DNS records.  Since I’ve already put that I’m going to be changing this, it’s not going actually let me do anything with it now, but if you decide to change anything in the future, you can just click on that and follow the instructions. This also shows your DNS manager.  And if you need your calendar, e-mail, fax, or any other DNS information, this is the DNS information for those. 

Now there is usually one other way to forward all of your domains, and in case you’re using a Cpanel, I’m going to show you in Bluehost.  As I said, most Cpanels are pretty much the same depending on which hosting service you get. And if you scroll down, you’ll see in the Cpanel ithas that you can go to your domain manager.  If you go into your Cpanel, you’ll see that you can also go to redirects and this will redirect any old website you may have and then it will direct them to your new website. So you can make this permanent or temporary, put in all public domains that are under the name that you have bought.  In this case, it is going to be Wordpresstutorialhub.com, and also if you have a back slash. 

So let’s say you have a sub directory that is members, or special, or something like that, you can put that back slash in that sub directory and you can redirect to the website where you want to go. You also have a choice if you only want to redirect of people type in www, if you want to redirect with or without the www, because not all people use the www at the beginning, or if you don’t want to redirect if the person uses www. And click wildcard redirect if you want to make sure that every sub domain for this site will go back to the appropriate domain, and click on add.  So those are two different methods of going in and setting your nameservers, and forwarding your websites if necessary.  I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and I look forward to teaching you again the next time. Thank you for listening.

How to change DNS and redirect domains 05:17

Instructor: Penny Peters

This lecture is produced in three different formats: HD Video, Mp3 and Pdf. Just scroll down if you wish to download educational material.

For this tutorial, we’re going to take a look at the Cpanel or control panel of your website.  Now this has a whole bunch of really fantastic tools for you to use.  It will allow you to do everything from search engine optimization to adding ecommerce to your sites, to giving you templates, allowing you to control your email address, your files, domains and so on.  So let’s go ahead and take a look at the setup first of all.  The first thing you should know is that you will be using some of these departments more than others, and the great thing about the Cpanel is it will usually allow you to click on one of these and drag it up to wherever you need to go.  So the ones you use most often will be at the top of the page. 

So as you can see, at the top of the Bluehost panel; they’ve got a promotional items which are usually different specials you can get from their sponsors, including their Adwords, their yellow page listings, boxed art templates if you’re not sure what you want to do with your template and you want to build it up.  It has partners, and there are different services you can integrate into your website, including online payments, cloud storage, which is basically having all of your information stored on a remote server, preferences, and there is a getting started wizard here, too. 

So if you would like to click on that, it will take you through all the ways you can get started on using your Cpanel. It allows you to update your password, it gives you some how to videos which can be very helpful, you can update your contact and billing information. If you decide you want to use web-based email, this is also a large part that allows you to do that. There’s an e-mail marketing part, your web mail address that you can click on, and this will allow you to set up your e-mail address and password, and that way if someone sends you an email through your website it will go directly into you email account.

You also will have Postini, which is a great anti-spam program that is offered by Google so you won’t get too much spam coming to your email. You can set up auto responder so if someone sends you an e-mail through your site, they’ll automatically receive an e-mail back saying that you have received the e-mail and will be responding as soon as possible.  Forwarders that every time you get an email address and you want it forwarded to another one, you can have it automatically forwarded to another one, whether personal or business.  It has the e-mail lists, advance e-mail campaigns, user level filtering, you can import addresses, usually from Excel or from a database, you can send large files, you can adjust your spam adjustments. We also have site builders; Wordpress is extremely popular right now.

With Wordpress, it usually is just basically a plug and play type of thing, you can put in different functions and it allows you to update daily, and you can put in Google and Facebook and all kinds of good things there. You can also put in Simple Scripts and Weebly Website builder from Bluehost. Underneath is your file manager and this is going to be very, very important.  You’ll have a site backup and restore, and when you do make changes to your site, you always want to run a site backup and save it to your computer so if something happens you can come back later and you can restore your site, say, before anything went wrong. 

We’ve got file managers, and the file managers are where you will actually go into your server and you’re going to load all of your website files onto there. And if you click on that, it will allow you to use your directory for your website to go in. And once you get to here, it’s going to pull up all of your files and allow you to load your website and any widgets you may have, any databases and information.  It is also going to show you your disk space usage, take a look at your FTP accounts, and your FTP accounts are where you can keep large files of your own for customers or partners to download, or they can upload their stuff to your FTP accounts and you can pull it straight off from there, so it’s an easier way to send large files to each other. Website movers, you can sign up for unlimited FTP; for logs, this is going to show you how much bandwidth your site is using.  It has a Webalizer, and this is going to show you statistics on how many people are coming to your site, where they’re going on the site, where they’re coming from, their country of origin, things like that. 

You can choose your log programs, you can take a look at our statistics, you can take a look at all the statistics of your latest visitors and logs, and this is just a great way to see if your site is being successful and if it’s being looked at by the people you want it to be looked at, and this will allow you to kind of set up a better marketing campaign.  For security, we have ways to password protect directories, so people can’t get into certain parts of your website without a password. That’s very common for sites that have paid information on there that you don’t want just anyone to be able to get into. You have your SSL and TLS manager; that is your safety settings manager.  You can get into there and set that to make sure that your customers’ information is private and safe and yours is as well. 

We have our domains, again you can register a domain, you can transfer a domain, which we’ll look at in the next tutorial, and that will allow you to, say, buy a domain name on a different site like we did with GoDaddy and transfer that domain to your webhosting. You can add subdomains, which is when you can have freeowrdpresstutorials.com, but you also want to set up freewordpressvideotutorialsdot commembers, or freewordpressvideotutorials.comspecials , things like that.  You can set up the sub domains that will lead people to the correct site.  You can add on domains, and this when you can add a domain that isn’t already associated with your account, and we’ll have to verify ownership, and choose if it’s an add-on or parked. If it’s an add-on that means it’s going to point to a different sub-directory your account.  If it’s parked, it is going to go to the same directory as your primary domain or it can be unassigned.  And we’ll show you that later as well. Going down further, you can also do a redirect, so let’s say if someone types in freewordpressvideotutorial rather than tutorials, it will also redirect them to your site. T

here is also a DNS zone editor, and we already looked to the DNS in our other tutorial and that is your domain nameservers’ zone editor. You can put in your Google apps wizard and then your domain manager, that is going to allow you to change your DNS and things like that. Below, we’ve got your database tools.  The database tools will allow you to build up databases.  This could be of users, or visitors to your site, and databases are really helpful because they will allow you to do things like setup e-mail blasts and other large scale projects. Underneath we have software and services that are offered. All of these aren’t free, so you’ll want to go through and take a look. There’s some that are well-known like Simple Scripts and Perl Modules and Ruby On Rails.  There are Wordpress themes that are very popular. 

You can go in and build your page straight up from the Wordpress themes.  There’s also a Trendy Site Builder, so those are a good thing to go through and see what they’ve got. And then we’ve got the  more advanced programs such as Apache Handlers , image managers for pictures and PDF files, we’ve got Frontpage extensions, we’ve got process manager;, your 404 settings, which is if someone goes to a site that doesn’t exist on your server, that’s called the 404 page. And then we’ve got ways to follow Bluehost on social media, so this is for you to follow Bluehost on social media, not for anyone to follow you on the social medias.  But if you would like, you can go ahead and click on the social media sites. Keep in mind, like I said, you can move these wherever they need to go to make them easy for you to find when you’re using them. Now let scroll up again. 

We’ve got notices right here on the left hand corner, and this shows that right now they’re offering a free one-click install of a Wordpress and that is a special you can click on right here. This is a find tool so if you know what you want to do but are not sure in which of these tool boxes to find the tool, you can just type it in right there.

This will show your most frequently accessed areas, which is easy because it will just take you straight where you are usually visiting, and then your stats. So this shows your domain name, your user name, your home directory, and this is where you will be putting all of your files for your website, the IP address that you last logged in from, and your monthly bandwidth transfer. And right now I haven’t started building my sites yet so it doesn’t have anything. So I can click on expand stats, and you’ll see that it will bring up how many sub-domains, part domains, e-mail accounts, and etcetera that I have.  So all that information is on the left side. If you look over further to the domain manager, basically you can get to the domain manager through the Cpanel like I showed you. The site builders, upgrades, all of those things are under the Cpanel. So you can either go through and find them here, or click on them along the top. So I hope that this was a quick and easy way for you to take a look at the Cpanel, and I hope this is helped you out.  I look forward to seeing you at the next tutorial.  Thanks for listening.

High.  For this tutorial, we’re going to take a look at how to use and add on domain and this up domain in our control panel or Cpanel.  We’re going to use host gator for this tutorial, so what we’re going to do is scroll down until we get to our domain seCpanel.  We're going to use host gator for this tutorial, so what we're going to do is scroll down until we get to our domain section.  And here you can see we have sub domains at on domains, part domains redirects, an advance dns is the entries. 

I'm going to go ahead and click on sub domains first.  In a sub domain is a domain that has a URL for a different section of your website.  According to this, it can use your main domain name and a prefix.  So in the sub domain box, I'm going to go ahead and put in my sub domain name and it's going to be Wordpress tutorial hub two.  And here you'll see that says in lap .net.  But I can also make it any of these in the dropdown.  But I'm going to leave it as in lap .net.  And then down here it shows what our document route is. 

So if you were to go into your files, you would see that it would be public HTML,tutorial hub.  And I'm going to click on create.  And it shows me that this has now been created.  So it's at Wordpress tutorial hub 2. in lab dot net.  And that is our sub domain.  So let's go ahead and go back and if we scroll down you can see that we've got our subject mains.root domains doctorates, read erections, and actions. 

So this shows us what our sub domains are, and you can see we've got a few of them in here, and it shows us with their addresses are.  If they are be directed, meaning that if somebody types this name in will it redirect them to another web site, so it can even be your website.  If you want to manage the redirection or if you want to remove the file.  So that just means that basically if anyone types in Wordpress tutorial hub to dot in lab dot net, it's going to go ahead and take them to the sub domain off your website.  And you can link this back to your own domain if you want or any other domains.  So that's really simple. 

There's really not much more to say about than that.  So I'm going to scroll backup, and I'm going to go into my Cpanel again, and this time I'm going to take a look at my ad on domains.  Scrolling down, I'm going to click add ons, and this will allow visitors to reach one of your sub domains by typing in your sub domains URL.  That means you can put in additional domains on your new account if your host account allows it.Provider allows it.  These add on to me is a relative to your accounts home directory, and you know that the little house right Provider allows it. 

These add on to me is a relative to your accounts home directory, and you know that the little house right here means that it's your home directoryand then the document bridge.  So let's go ahead and put in our new domain name and I'm going to put in Wordpress tutorial hub 3. com.  And you must put the dot com and you'll notice that this will not turn into a green arrow until you do.  Underneath, we have our sub domains and FTP username and it comes up automatically as Wordpress tutorial hub three. 

You can change that if you want to, but I'm just going to leave it the same.  And then here are document route is home, public HTML, Wordpress tutorial hub dot com.  Underneath we can put in our password or you can use the password generator, and click on add domain.  And it shows us that this new add on domain has been created.  So let's go back and scroll down, and this shows us our ad on domains.  Again, this is our domain name, the domain name with a document route, the username that was chosen, whether it was retracted, and if you want to remove it or manage the redirection.  Meaning that if someone comes and types in this add on domain name, is it going to be a redirect it to another site or to your main page.  So that's how we add a sub domain and can add on domain.  I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial.  Thanks for watching, and I will see you at the next one.

Hi.  For this tutorial, we’re going to take a look at how to install Wordpress automatically on those web servers that don’t offer Fantastico Deluxe. For this one, we’re looking at Bluehost, and we’re going to take a look for the Wordpress button that is featured on its Cpanel or control panel. And we’re going to scroll down until we find Site Builder. 

Now I’m going to click on Wordpress, and this is going to show us how to install Wordpress on our website, or actually for our website. It also gives us external links for the official site for Wordpress, documentation, support forms, how you can donate to Wordpress, read reviews about Wordpress, or go to custom web design for Wordpress.  We’re going to scroll down, and it has directions to install Wordpress.

You can click on install Wordpress.  You can click on install or import below, and by doing this you accept the simple scripts Terms of Service.  And you always want to click on this box to read them before you agree to them.  And underneath there is also an article on creating simple scripts.  And here at theop it also gives versions, plugins and themes that we can add, licensing information, bugs and reported issues, and a script list.  And this script list allows us to put any of these into our Wordpress page.  But I’m going to go back to my Cpanel. 

Once again, we’re going to have to click into my site builder for Wordpress, and I’m going to click on install a brand new version because I don’t have an existing installation already that can be installed.  And I’m going to click install because I have a brand new version rather than import, which is for an existing installation. Clicking install, it shows that it’s loading, and it’s going to ask which version I’d like to install. If you’re not sure, just pick the latest one, especially if it shows that it’s stable.  Next it is going to ask where we would like the Wordpress installed. 

This is our domain name, and I’m going to make a sub directory called tutorial folder.  And I’m going to make a sub directory called tutorial.  Next are the advanced options.  These include administrative privileges, database configuration, and more options. Let’s go ahead and click to display, and this will allow us to give your site a new name, to generate a random administrator username and password if you don’t want to use your own, or you can just put your username and password in here, and you can just automatically create a database. 

And this is going to create a new database for this Wordpress.  Underneath that shows us plugins and themes, including the commerce, small business themes, and Wiziapp, which allows your site to be turned into a native Iphone app.  Finally at the bottom is legal information. I actually want to click these off right now because I don’t want any of those plugins, and I’m going to click I’ve read the terms and conditions once I’ve read the terms and conditions, and click complete.

And our installation is now complete.  The shows us our site URL, our log-in URL; you can select it, then copy, and paste this into your favorites or click on bookmark this link.  The username is admin and right now this is my password because I didn’t reset the password.  So you will probably want to copy and paste that somewhere as well.  Once that is done, you’ll want to go to My Installs, and this shows that you have already installed Wordpress.  And this allows you to go to the admin login, extend, Uninstall the Wordpress, Advanced, and Find Support. Underneath you always have the script lists, and you can add these as well to your web hosting.

So if you want to go ahead and make changes to your Wordpress account, they’re going to automatically update to your Bluehost webserver. If you have any questions, click on support, and you can either call their 188 number, which is toll free, or start right over here with a simple scripts.  So I hope that this helped you out and it’s shown you that you can actually use Bluehost and Wordpress easily with a few clicks of a button. So thanks for watching and I’ll see you at the next tutorial. 

How to install Wordpress automatically using webhosting software 04:08

Instructor: Penny Peters

This lecture is produced in three different formats: HD Video, Mp3 and Pdf. Just scroll down if you wish to download educational material.

For this tutorial, we’re going to take a look at how to install a Wordpress automatically with Fantastico De Luxe.  Now if your web host offers Fantastico, this is a fantastic way to just do a quick installation of any Wordpress site.  So I’m on Hostgator right now, and I’m in my control panel, or Cpanel.  And to find the Fantastico De Luxe icon, I’m going to scroll down until I find the software and services bar. 

Once I get here, Fantastico De Luxe is one of the Software Services is offered.  I’m going to double click it, and it’s going to allow us to install automatically all the scripts are over here on the left hand side.  You’ll see that it has blog capabilities, such as Nucleus and Wordpress, and we’re going to do Wordpress. It also has content management, customer relationships, discussion boards, etc.  Also, keep in mind that if you remove any of these scripts from your Fantastico, it’s going to free up space on your databases. 

So let’s go ahead and click on Wordpress to see which details the can give us.  Now according to this, Wordpress is a blogging software with a focus on ease of use, elegance, performance, and standards with a huge selection of themes and plugins.  So let’s go ahead and click on it, and this gives us a home page, which is http://Wordpress.org.  It gives us a link to the Wordpress support form, it allows us to do a new installation, and it shows us current installations that are already in our site. 

So let’s go ahead and do a new installation, and it’s going to ask what domain I’d like to install it on.  And if you use the drop down, it will show you the subdomains that we have for our site.  So I’m going to go and leave it on imlab.net, and I’m going to install it in a directory.  And I’m just going to name this directory Wordpress.  This will be in a subdirectory called Wordpress that is on the domain imlab.net.  If you don’t go ahead and type in the name and directory, it will put the files directly into your root directory. 

Keep in mind, as it says here, the directory should not already exists because you’re currently creating it; I’e typed in the name into the box for install directory.  Underneath that will give us admin access data, and it will ask for your username, and let’s go ahead and put in a name and then a password. And then it’s going to ask for a base configuration.  So the admin nickname is going to be… and then it is going to ask for the admin e-mail address, your site name, and the description. 

And I’m going to click “install Wordpress”.  And now it tells us the SQL database and the SQL user imlab_WRDP is going to be created and used for the installation.  It also tells us that we’ve chosen to install a domain imlab, in a subdirectory called Wordpress in the access URL will be http://imlab.netWordpress.  And to continue, we’re going to go ahead and click “finish installation”.

On the next screen, it’s going to tell you that while Hostgator does offer Fantastico, it’s not going to actually give you support for the Wordpress, but it will allow you to auto-install and auto-configure.  And it’s going to tell you that you need a username and a password to enter into the admin area, and it gives you the username and password.  Then it gives you the full URL to your admin area.  So if you like, you can hit control or command V, if you’ve got PC or Mac, left click, and it will open it up in a new tab.

Once you get here, you can bookmark this so it will automatically go back to your administration page when you go in and make any changes to your Wordpress page.  You can go back into the Wordpress overview, or you can choose to e-mail the details of this installation.  So I’m going to put in the e-mail address I’d like it to go to, and I’m going to click on “send e-mail”.  It sent the installation details, and I’m going to go back into my Wordpress overview.  Now I can login to Wordpress, I can make my site active, and it will automatically save all my changes into my Wordpress site.  So I hope this is helped you out, and made this a little easier for you, giving you a better understanding of Fantastico De Luxe. We’ll see you at the next tutorial; thanks for listening.

How to install Wordpress using Fantastico De Luxe 04:11

Instructor: Penny Peters

This lecture is produced in three different formats: HD Video, Mp3 and Pdf. Just scroll down if you wish to download educational material.

Hi.  For this tutorial, we’re going to take a look at how to download and install Wordpress on your web server site, even if you don’t have an easy one button click.  So let’s go ahead to Wordpress.org, and we’re going to find a page that says download Wordpress 3.4.  At the time of this recording, 3.4 is the latest version used, so I’m going to go ahead to click to download, and I’m going to tell it that I want the zip file, and click download Wordpress 3.4. 

I’m going to save the file, and then I’m going to double click and open the folder where the file is saved.  And it’s in my download folder.  I’m going to minimize that screen, and then I’m going to go into my Bluehost Cpanel.  I’m going to scroll down to my file manager and double click, and I’m going to put this into the web root.  Once I’m in the web root folder, I’m going to click on new folder and I’m going to create a new folder called manually.  Because this is where I manually put in the Wordpress. 

And click on create folder.  And now it pops up in my Cpanel, and this is in my root file.  Next, I’m going to reopen the folder where I have saved my Wordpress.  I’m going to right click, and I’m going to tell it to go into Winzip, and I’m going to extract it into a folder that has my name, downloads, in Wordpress.  I like to arrange my files by date modified when I’m doing a job like this.  Once I’ve got it here, I’m going to right click again and I’m going to click on add to Wordpress.zip.  And it’s going to add all of those files to a new folder called Wordpress. 

And a folder should pop up showing my original size and my compressed size, and I’m going to click OK and then get out of these folders.  So once I’ve got that file saved into a sub folder, I’m going to click on my manually folder, I’m going to click upload, and I’m going to find that folder that I just made.  So I’m going to click on Wordpress and I’m going to tell it open.  And it’s going to go ahead and add that whole series of files that are in that folder on to my web server into my manually folder.  So while that is going, and it’s going to take a while, let’s go back into my Bluehost Cpanel and now we’re going to build a database.

The database is going to be under my SQL databases, and we just have to find out where my SQL database is, I’m going to double click on that, and I’m going to put the name of the new database and /manually.  And click on create database.  That database has been made, so I’m going to click on go back, and I’m going to go across this database that I made, right click, and I’m going to open up my Notepad++, and I’m just going to go ahead and open up a new folder and paste that in as the database name.  And I’m going to type in there that that’s the database name. 

Next, I’m going to add a new user.  Then it’s going to ask you to create a username, and I’m just going to make this imlab2.  Now you can only use up to seven letters or numbers, so you want to make it a good one.  Then we’re going to click on password generator.  Once it comes up with a password, we’re going to copy it, and we’re going to paste that into our Notepad++ file, just so we know we’ve got it someplace that it’s definitely correct.  And then I’m going to tell it that I’ve copied the password in a safe place, and to use the password.  And I’m going to tell it to create the username.  So it’s now added this user and this password. 

And I’m going to click on go back.  Now I’m going to scroll down again and I’m going to add this user to a database, so the user is the imlab2, and I’m going to add this to the manually database that I just created that is now having all my files downloaded into it, and click add.  The next page is going to ask for which privileges you want to give this user.  Since its user’s me, I’m going to click on all privileges, but you can click any or all of these if you want to.  And click make changes.  And click on go back.  Now if you scroll down to our databases, you’ll see that in my manually folder, the user imlab2 is a user.  If you want to get rid of any of these user names, you can just click on X, or if you want to get rid of the whole database, click on delete database.  All right, so now that we’ve done that, let’s go back out to our Cpanel.  I’m going to go and check on my third tab, which shows how much progress has been made on my uploading this file. 

As you can see, I’m now complete, so I’m going to X out of the third, go back into my second, and it looks empty.  But if you click on reload, it will show you that all the files are in there.  So now I’m going to click on Wordpress to file, and I’m going to tell it to extract, which is right up here on the right, and this is where I’d like to extract it to, so I’m going to click on extract files.  This will show me all the files that came out, and I’m going to click close and then again I’m going to click reload.  And there they all are, everything from my admin content pages all the way down. 

So now my Wordpress pages uploaded to my web serve
