How-To Install WordPress on SiteGround

2 Super Easy Steps

Get ready to jump into the creativity of WordPress.

We’ve been using SiteGround hosting together with WordPress for years.  One of the main reasons we stick with SiteGround is because of their stellar 24/7 customer support.  Whether you prefer phone, email or online chat they’ve always been there for us for any questions.  And they take the time to walk through every step for a successful outcome.

Below you’ll find the WordPress install wizard instructions from our buddies over at SiteGround.

If you’ve gotten to this step of setting up your blog/website and don’t have your SiteGround hosting yet, bookmark this page, and then head on over to our post  How To Start A WordPress Blog On SiteGround.  We’ll see you back here.

TIP:  We recommend starting your hosting package at the lowest cost $3.95 to save some money when starting out.  You can always upgrade later.

Important Note: Rather than follow the steps below, can always contact SiteGround Chat. If you have (or want to get) Elegant Themes Popular Divi Theme, you can ask SiteGround to install the Divi theme instead of following these steps below. It’s a good idea to have your purchase key easily accessible too.

The quickest way is to chat with SiteGround.  Here’s how to do it.  After logging into your SiteGround account look toward the top of the page for a grey “Support” tab.  Chat with SiteGround WordPress Support and let them know you have, for example, the Divi Theme or whatever Elegant Theme you have chosen. Ask them something like, “I have the Divi Theme and would like to use it for my domain (fill in with your domain name) Can you please upload the WordPress Divi Theme?”

You can find more here, “How To Make A Self-Hosted WordPress Website.”

For those who prefer to follow the 2 easy steps below, let’s get to it.

Setting up WordPress isn’t any easier than with SiteGround’s Wizard Tool.

So let’s break down the SiteGround WordPress install that WordPress raves about and officially recommends.

First thing, get your login details when you signed up for your SiteGround WordPress hosting package.siteground website hosting


Step 1:

To install WordPress using the SiteGround Wizard, first access your Customer Area. After you signup for our WordPress hosting package you will receive all the necessary information you need to login.


Once you login to your Customer Area for the first time, you will see a pop-up asking you if you want to Start a new website on your account. Select that option and click on the WordPress button. This is what you should see.


Step 2:

A new section would appear where you should enter the login information for your new WordPress application. Once you are ready click on the Confirm button.

Next, choose what Enhancements you wish to add to your account – if you want to add any. When you are ready for this step – click on the Complete Setup button.

All Done!

That’s it! You can now go to the front page of your site and check out the newly installed WordPress application.

Congratulations! Your WordPress is all set up, YAY! Do a little happy dance. 🙂   Your account management information will be displayed which SiteGround will email to you along with other useful information.  Now you can go check out the front page of your newly installed WordPress site.  Great job!
