Once your registration is approved you’ll receive an email from Hostgater with all the details you need to make a free website using wordpress. Click on the link next to your control panel and enter the username and password as provided in the email. This is where we go to access a program call Fantastico Deluxe and install wordpress.
You’ll see a lot of icons on the control panel, don’t be overwhelmed with these, they are just some of the web development tools available. We just need Fantastico Deluxe, which is located under software/services towards the bottom of the screen. It’s a smiley icon and easy to spot. Click on Fantastico Deluxe and under blogs on the left hand column there is wordpress. Click wordpress and select new installation. Enter some log-in details and take note of these because this is what you will need to enter your website. Then install wordpress, click finish installation and then you’ll be provided with a link. Click the link and enter the username and password you just selected and you’ll be looking at your website.
You can now see the wordpress dashboard where you can edit and build a website. Just to finish up this video, I’m going to show you one of the major benefits of this website creator and what sets it apart from other website makers. WordPress has thousands of free web templates called themes that you can use to customize your web page design and allow you to create websites that reflect the purpose of your site.
If you go to appearance and themes on the dashboard and select install themes, you can search for templates for your website. You can browse certain categories or carry out specific searches. These themes are being added to all the time, so there are so many options for building a website. Once you find a theme you like, simply select install and it’s done, it’s that easy. You can totally change the look of your website through a single click; very powerful.
