Step 1

You can create a new account on SiteGround that comes with a FREE domain or if you already have a registered account, we can use that instead.

Go to SiteGround.com and choose the “Wordpress Hosting” option.

SiteGround’s Starter Plan will be enough for any type of website and just costs $3.95 per month. If you’re aiming to create more websites for your other businesses, friends or clients, you will need the Grow Big plan.
Type your preferred domain name and click “Proceed”.

Complete the account, client, payment and purchase information and hit “Pay Now”.

Select the Data Center (USA, Europe, or Singapore) that’s nearest to the geographical location of your target users to maximize server response time.

Don’t worry about security. HackAlert will notify you in the event your website gets hacked or corrupted with a malicious program. It’s not required, but for $12, it’s a good warning tool to have nonetheless.

You will receive a confirmation email with all the necessary links and information about your account once you completed the setup at SiteGround.

Step 2
As a Content Management System, WordPress is a really powerful software when it comes to website creation. It manages almost everything for you: pages, posts, links, and so much more!

Login your account on SiteGround and navigate through the “My Account” section and then click the button for “cPanel”.

Click the WordPress icon in the “Autoinstallers” section, “Install” and follow the instructions.

Fill in the required fields with the necessary information under the “Install” section. Always double check your input to prevent future issues.

You can now check your WordPress website by clicking the “http://yourwebsite.com” link or the “http://yourwebsite.com/wp-admin“ to access the back-end!

Now, log on your WordPress site.

Before moving on. You probably noticed that your website looks really bare bone. That’s because we haven’t installed a “Theme” yet. Themes are essential to every WordPress site. WordPress already has a few default and ready to use themes but we’ll show anyway how to install a theme directly through the WordPress.

But you can download any theme from any of the popular WordPress theme directory sites such as the official WordPress Theme Directory page and use the upload option. The file that you downloaded has to be in a “.zip” file format, so always double check!

Return to the “Dashboard” of your WordPress site and find the “Appearance” button at the left Side-bar. At the top, click “Add New”.

Go to Popular so you can see what theme most WordPress websites are using. Use the “upload theme” option to upload your zip file theme.
You can also use the search field if you have any theme preferences in mind. Just click any of the themes and hit “install”.
After the installation, click “Activate”.
You’re WordPress website is now ready for the next step!
Step 3

Elementer is a very powerful drag and drop WordPress Page Builder plugin that’s available for free. It currently has over 2,000,000 active installations on WordPress and active from over 900,000 users.

Step 4
