The process of installing WordPress on your new domain is straightforward and simple and should only take about five minutes from start to finish.
All of the larger hosting companies offer Fantastico or similar automated software installation program to install software such as WordPress. With the use of Fantastico, the WordPress installation is reduced to a short series of mouse clicks that virtually anybody can quickly do.
WordPress is installed directly from the control panel of your hosting account. Look for Fantastico or a WordPress icon in the available options of your control panel. Sometimes it will be listed under a “software” heading.
All you have to do is enter the chosen name of your blog, specify a username and password, and tell the software which path that you would like to install WordPress on. There is a drop-down list of all the available domains associated with your hosting account, and all you have to do is select the one that is applicable.
Uninstalling WordPress from a domain is similarly easy. It only requires you to highlight the specific WordPress installation from the list of available options and click uninstall.
Once you have successfully installed WordPress, you can begin the task of learning the software and familiarizing yourself with its features. Thankfully, WordPress is a very simple and you should have your blog up and running in no time.
