To add a new WordPress website to your hosting plan, follow the steps below 👇
Step 1 – Add a Website to Your Hosting Plan
In the Websites section, click on Create or migrate a website:
If you have multiple hosting plans, you'll be asked to choose the one you wish to add your website to. Further, you'll be asked to specify the type of website you wish to create.
After that, in the step Create or Migrate a Website, select the option Create a new website:
Finally, in the step Select a Platform, choose WordPress.
Step 2 – Create Login Details for Your WordPress Account
In this step, do the following:
Select the preferred language for your WordPress account
Specify your email address
Create or generate a strong password
Finally, click on Continue.
Step 3 – Select Plugins
Choose the preferred plugins from the list of suggested ones and click on Continue. Alternatively, you can skip this step for now and install plugins once your website is set up.
Step 4 – Select a Template
Choose the preferred theme for your website from the list of suggested ones and click on Continue. Alternatively, you can skip this step for now and install a theme once your website is set up.
Step 5 – Use the AI Text Generator
Insert your brand name and a short description of your business, and the AI will help you create content for your website. Once you do that, click on Continue. Alternatively, you can skip this step for now and use the WordPress AI Assistant later.
Step 6 – Name Your Website
Now, specify the domain name of your website. You'll find two options:
Choose a Domain – use this option if you want to:
Use your domain that's registered at Hostinger (if any)
Purchase a new domain
Use an Existing Domain – use this option if you want to use your domain that's registered elsewhere (not at Hostinger)
If you select the Use an Existing Domain option, you'll be asked to point your domain to Hostinger servers. Once that's done, click on Continue.
After a few minutes, your WordPress installation will be completed, and you can start building your website using WordPress or go back to the control panel.
Step 7 – Access WordPress Dashboard
Once installation is complete, you will be able to manage your WordPress by going to the Websites section of your panel and clicking Edit website:
Delete your WordPress installation
If you don’t see any changes on your website after the successful installation and your domain is pointing to Hostinger, make sure to clear the browser cache.
