At Make Sport Fun we build our websites in house using WordPress – here I explain how you can install your own WordPress website from scratch in under 4 minutes.
Go to www.bluehost.com and click on sign up now. Bluehost is one of the most popular WordPress hosting systems out there, and a very good hosting option.
Enter the domain name you want to use (e.g. makesportfun.com) and click next
Enter all your billing information and sign up.
Once you’ve got an account set up go to cPanel – your user interface. Scroll down till you see the software/ services section and click on WordPress
Click on install.
Enter the requested information and click complete.
Bluehost will start installing WordPress for you.
Once it’s complete it will provide you with your login details.
If you click on the link for the login then it will take you to your administration login page, where you can login using the login details from the previous page.
If you click on the link for the site then it will take you to your (very basic) site – live on the internet.
The next steps are to install a theme, change the layout and generally make the site look the way you want. Then you can start adding your content.
