  6. Choose a Hosting Package • A wrong hosting package can spell dooms for your site. While there are many lucrative packages in the offering, choose one that would meet your needs. • Does it support WordPress? Does the package support multiple domains? • How much bandwidth and storage is being allocated? • What percentage of up-time is being guaranteed? You need to consider these closely before making the choice.

  7. Upload Wordpress • In the next step download the latest version of WordPress and upload it into your hosting account using the FTP (file transfer protocol). • You may need to download a FTP client program for this. Once done you need to create a database. • This is where all your data i.e. content, configurations and user data would be stored.

Here you would need to set the login id and password. • You would receive a confirmation mail. Choose a strong login id and password to prevent hacker from taking advantage.

  9. Choose a Theme • There are thousands of free and premium themes available for WordPress so take your time in choosing a theme that meets your requirements. • There are a few things you need to look for these include – brilliant design, valid HTML and CSS, support, strong code base and compatibility with the latest version of WordPress. • Download the documentation available as it will help during customization. If you still can’t find a good theme, you can design one in PSD and convert it into HTML/XHTML and CSS.

  10. Basic Configuration • In the next step you would need to configure the basic settings of your site. Start by activating Akismet which helps in checking spam. • It comes in-built with WordPress. Next configure the permalinks. By default it would be something like yoursite.com?p=232. • You can change it to post name to make it friendly for the search engines. Next you can disable the comments if you want to.
