How to Use WordPress with Hostinger

Hey everyone, welcome to Ben’s Experience! In this guide, I’ll show you how to use WordPress with Hostinger. This step-by-step tutorial will help you set up and manage your WordPress site efficiently.

Step 1: Access Your Hostinger Account

First, log into your Hostinger account. Once you’re inside, click on ‘Websites’ from the top menu. Find your website and click on ‘Dashboard’ next to it.

Step 2: Install WordPress

To install WordPress, scroll down to the ‘Auto Installer’ section and select ‘WordPress’. Click on ‘Install’ next to WordPress. You’ll need to fill in your website credentials, including the website title, administrator email, username, and password. Click ‘Next’.

Step 3: Configure WordPress Settings

For the application version, I recommend using the latest WordPress version for better security. Select your site language from the drop-down menu and click ‘Install’. Your WordPress site will be created successfully.

Step 4: Set Up Your WordPress Theme

After installation, log in to your WordPress dashboard from the admin panel. Go to ‘Appearance’ and then ‘Themes’. Click on ‘Add New Theme’. I personally prefer the Astra theme. Activate it and click on ‘Let’s Get Started’ with Starter Templates. You can choose between an AI website builder or classic starter templates. I prefer the classic starter templates. After selecting your template, click ‘Continue’, skip the optional steps, and build your website.

Step 5: Customize Your WordPress Site

Your new website is ready! Let’s go through some customization options:

  • Add New Posts: From your dashboard, you can create and publish new posts.
  • Create Categories: Organize your posts by creating categories.
  • Add Media: Upload photos and videos to enhance your content.
  • Create New Pages: Add new pages to your site.
  • Manage Comments: Moderate comments from your dashboard.
  • Install New Themes: Change the look of your site by installing different themes.

Step 6: Optimize Your Site

To keep your site running smoothly, delete any unnecessary plugins. For instance, you can deactivate and delete plugins like Hostinger Easy Boarding and Hostinger Tools if you don’t need them.

Step 7: Additional Settings

Under ‘Settings’, you can change your site title, site icon, email address, and more. Customize these settings to fit your preferences.

That’s all for this tutorial on how to use WordPress with Hostinger. I hope you found it helpful!
