How to set up your Blog in minutes!

Whether your starting a coaching, fitness, non-profit or any other business, you need a strong Internet presence. The first step to making money online and getting found is to score with a winning website. Ready to get your WordPress site up and running in minutes? Follow the steps below and you’ll be off to the races!

Step #1:

Click Here To Set Up Your Hosting Account & Aquire or Transfer Your Domain…

Your hosting account is where your website or blog will be hosted and your domain is your website’s URL (AndreaBolder.com is mine).

My #1 hosting recommendation is Hostgator because:

  1. They are a proven hosting company.
  2. Their customer support is awesome and based in the USA.
  3. They also have some of the lowest rates offered!

Step #10:

Hostgator will install WordPress on your server and let you know when it’s complete (takes a few seconds)…

When your Install is complete a reddish box will appear at the top of your page. Click the small arrow on the right to see the dropdown information box which contains your website login credentials including your username and password.

IMPORTANT: Save this information somewhere where you won’t lose it. You will need it for step #11.  

You can change your password to something more familiar later under the profile settings.
