How to Set Up Hostinger for WordPress

Welcome to Ben’s Experience! In this guide, I’ll walk you through the process of setting up Hostinger for WordPress. Whether you’re a beginner or looking for tips to improve your website setup, this step-by-step tutorial will help you get started.

Step 1: Visit Hostinger

Step 2: Choose a Hosting Plan

Once you’re on the Hostinger website, click on ‘Hosting’ from the top menu, then select ‘Web Hosting’. Hostinger offers three web hosting plans:

  • Single Shared Hosting: Suitable for beginners with a single website.
  • Premium Shared Hosting: Recommended for beginners and those with multiple websites. It offers:
    • Up to 100 websites
    • 100 GB of NVMe storage
    • Unlimited SSL certificates
    • Multiple free email accounts
    • Automatic weekly backups
    • A free domain name
  • Business Shared Hosting: Ideal for those needing more resources and better performance. It includes:
    • All features of the Premium plan
    • Daily backups
    • A free CDN for faster loading speeds

For established websites with high traffic, the Cloud Startup Plan is recommended. It provides a dedicated IP address and priority customer support.

Step 3: Select Subscription Duration

After choosing your plan, select the subscription duration you prefer (1 year, 2 years, or 4 years). The longer the subscription, the better the renewal price.

Step 4: Complete the Payment

Fill in your personal information (optional), verify the total amount, and complete the payment using your preferred method (credit card or PayPal). Follow the instructions to finalize the payment.

Step 5: Create Your Website

After payment, you’ll be redirected to the Hostinger setup page. Choose to create a new website and claim your free domain. Fill in your domain details, select your server location for faster loading speeds, and finish the setup.

Step 6: Install WordPress

To install WordPress, go to your Hostinger dashboard, click on ‘Auto Installer’, and select WordPress. Fill in your website credentials, choose the latest WordPress version for better security, and select your site language. Click ‘Install’ to complete the process.

Step 7: Customize Your WordPress Site

Log in to your WordPress dashboard and install a new theme. I recommend the Astra theme for its versatility and ease of use. Activate the theme and start customizing your site using starter templates.

Step 8: Optimize Your WordPress Site

To make your WordPress site faster, delete any unnecessary plugins such as Hostinger Easy Boarding and Hostinger Tools. Deactivate them first, then delete them. You can also add another user to manage content and adjust settings under the ‘Settings’ menu.


Setting up Hostinger for WordPress is straightforward and user-friendly. Follow these steps to get your website up and running quickly. Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more tips and tutorials!
