In this video I explain in greater detail and in simple language how install WordPress in the Main Hosting Domain.

 

If your main domain does not point DNS to Hosting?

This case is more common than you imagine.

Take for example you, as new client that you land in Websites Are Us, you come from a previous provider, and your domain continues to point the DNS to that other provider, with which in addition to managing the web, you have mail and other services, … a fairly common case.

When buying a Hosting in Websites Are Us you have several options for the domain that will be the main of your account, one of them is to keep it in your previous provider and point the DNS. But of course this process is neither automatic nor immediate, since it requires your approval and also that you change the DNS or request it from your Support if you are not very clear about the process.

Yes, yes, I know that it is a lot of trouble for who has just bought a Hosting and what he wants is to mess around, install a Pack and experience how Hosting is going, how WordPress works and while having fun.

For these cases we have a temporary url, which we provide to all clients in the welcome or landing email, and which is used to install a WordPress Pack (or another one available in your Hosting Panel), and to be able to access cPanel, the Pack installer, install WordPress and use it from the temporary url while the domain contracted or defined in the purchase, does not point to Hosting.

Example of temporary url format for WordPress Hosting:

wordpress-cp2017.wordpresstemporal.com

Where:

With this temporary url you can:

You can not:

Having clarified these points, let’s go to see how to install a Pack in the main folder of the Hosting but using the temporary url that we have provided when contracting the product.

Summary installation process:

  1. Access your cPanel, Pack Websites Are Us.
  2. Click Create WordPress.
  3. Choose the Pack to install from the ones you have available.
  4. Click the green “Install” button for the chosen pack.
  5. Fill in the installer fields:
  • Name of the site: The name of your website.
  • Select in the dropdown the temporary url (without www alias).
  • Binder: Leave it empty (install the pack in / public_html).
  • Administator: You can change the one that suggests you.
  • Administrator email: Put an email that exists from your domain.
  • Web address (URL): Unmodifiable.
  • Installation folder: Unmodifiable.
  • [ ] Overwrite existing data: Check it only if there is an existing installation in / public_html and you want to overwrite it. Eye!! Make sure well first.
  • Click on the green button Install app.

If you look it is very similar to the process of installing the pack under the main domain, and only the selection of the temporary url varies instead of the main domain.

In this other video I explain how install WordPress in the main Hosting folder using the temporary url.

 

How do you see, installing WordPress under the main domain of your Hosting, or using the temporary url if your domain still does not point the DNS to the contracted Hosting, it is a simple process that can be carried out from your cPanel.
