If you are using Hostgator web hosting for the first time, then you may have a little problem in installing WordPress, but there is nothing to worry about, in this blog you will be told how to install WordPress in an easy way in web hosting

How to get started?

If you want to create your WordPress site, first you need a domain name and web hosting.

Since I wrote this post about installing WordPress on HostGator, I recommend that you purchase a web hosting plan from HostGator. The modest web hosting plan at HostGator starts at $ 2.75 a month, which is enough to build a WordPress website.

Friends, at HostGator you will see two types of web hosting: one will not write web hosting, and the other will write WordPress hosting. If you are going to create your first website, do not be confused between the two and choose a simple web hosting because the price is much cheaper than WordPress hosting.

HostGator gives you a free domain name with its plan. However, you can get this free domain if you pay for this plan for a year or more.

If you choose a monthly or quarterly plan without buying an annual plan on HostGator, then in this case you will not get a free domain and you will have to buy your own domain name.

Where to buy domain name?

While there are many domain registrars on the internet, I have only selected two of the best domain registrars for which you can purchase domain names. These are land registrars:

Both of these land providers are very popular. With it, you can register the domain you want. They both offer you a domain name at very low prices, then be sure to visit their websites once and buy your domain name where you can get a better deal.

Personally, I like Namecheap better because its plans are very cheap and will also give you free domain privacy along with your domain.

If you want to make money on your website or if you want to work on it for a long time, you should buy good domain like .com, .in, .net, .org, etc.

If you need more information about a domain name or want to know how to choose a good domain name, you can click on the link below.

I have provided very detailed information about the domain name in the post mentioned below, so be sure to read this post before purchasing a domain name. You will love this post very much.

Once you have purchased your domain name and web hosting plan, all you have to do is log in to your web host’s cPanel and install WordPress. Your website will be created as soon as WordPress is installed.

WordPress Installation From cPanel:

After purchasing the domain name and hosting, you are given a control panel (cpanel), through which you can control your website.

* After purchasing the hosting, the login details and nameservers are received by you by e-mail.

If you have not bought the domain name from HostGator. So you have to connect the nameservers given by HostGator to your domain account.

You can click on the link given below to get information on how to connect your Domain Name to Hosting cPanel.

Once your domain name is linked to your hosting cPanel, you can install WordPress on your HostGator hosting.

How to Install WordPress?

After adding the nameservers to the domain account, login to your control panel. You will get the login details on your email.

https://hostinghindi.in/wp/ which will also not be good in terms of SEO. So keep in mind that we have to leave this field empty.
