How to Set Up a WordPress Website in 6 Easy Steps

WordPress is an excellent choice when getting started with a website. Not only is it a user-friendly CMS (content management system), but it’s also extremely customizable and scalable—allowing your site to evolve as your business grows. With WordPress having such a large community of users and developers, it’s easy to find support and advice for any questions that might pop up as you’re building out your website.

Getting started is super simple:

  1. Install WordPress: Most hosting providers offer a one-click installation for WordPress, which is the easiest way to install WordPress on your website. If your provider doesn’t offer this option, you can manually install WordPress by downloading the install files from the WordPress website and uploading them to your hosting account.
  2. Choose a theme: Be sure to pick a WordPress theme that suits your website’s style and functionality. There are plenty of free and paid themes available online to choose from.
  3. Install plugins: Plugins help add additional functionality to your WordPress site. Be sure to choose plugins from reputable sources with positive ratings and good customer support.
  4. Customize your website: Customize your website by adding menus, pages, and content.
  5. Optimize your website for search engines: Use WordPress plugins (such as Yoast SEO) and optimize your content for search engines to help increase your website’s visibility and traffic.
  6. Test your website: Test your website for proper functionality, speed, and responsiveness. You’ll want to check that your website works well on different devices and browsers to ensure the best possible user experience for your visitors.
