The 3 Easiest Steps To Create a Blog


Form last part of Blogs Tutorial you learned How to Change DNS or NameServer. In this part you will learn The 3 Easiest Steps To Create a Blog. It’s really easy and only 3 easy steps. Exited to see your first blog? Definitely you are and it’s very interesting. So, hold your excitement for few minutes and just follow my steps. You will be able to start your own blog in next 15 minutes.

What you need to create your first blog?

You need only your hosting account user id and password. You can access to CPANEL using your user id and password. Oh! I forgot to say you about CPANEL. CPANEL is a panel where you will maintain your hosting account. Means installing blog, adding domain, sub domain, email account etc. To access your CPANEL you just type as below in browser:

http://yourDomain.com/cpanel

Then it will ask user id and password. Just enter user id and password and you can access your cpanel.

Note: Depending on situation you need 48 hours to access CPANEL after you bought your hosting package.

Let’s Start With The 3 Easiest Steps to Create your Blog:

Step1: Log In to your CPANEL. You will get a screen as below:

Step1.1 Click on Fantastico De Luxe as shown in image.
Step1.2 Now you will get a new window. click on Wordpress in the Navigation bar
Step1.3 Click on New Installation

Step1 is over and now proceed to  Step2.

Step2. After clicking on New Installation you will get following window. I am explaining each step.

Wordpress Installation Tutorial

Step2.1 Select domain to install. If you have only one domain then select the domain name  as YourDomainName.com
Step2.2 Here you have to decide whether you want to install your blog in root directory of your domain or in a sub directory.

Root directory means your blog will be installed in your domain root. For example: http://YourDomain.com

Sub directory means your blog will be installed in a sub directory of your domain root. For example: http://YourDomain.com/SubDirectoryName/

If you choose root directory then your blog URL will be http://YourDomainName.com and if you choose sub directory then it will be http://YourDomainName.com/SubDirectoryName/

In this example I choose sub directory as there is already a blog present in my root directory.

Step2.3 Enter Administrator User Name

Step2.4 Enter Password

(Please copy in notepad as I am going to refer it in next step)

Step2.5 Enter Admin Nick Name
Step2.6 Enter Admin Email Id (your Email Id)
Step2.7 Enter your Blog Name
Step2.8 Give a Blog Description
Step2.9 Click on Install Wordpress

This step is most important and this is the final step of your blog. Double check everything before you click on Install Wordpress. Proceed to Step3(Final Step)

Step3. Once you click on Install Wordpress you will get below window:

Well, these are the 3 easy steps to create your blog. Your blog is already created. However though you have successfully created I want to give some more details so that you can instantly start with new posting.

These are the added step that you want to perform. These steps are not repleted to creating a blog. Just follow to understand better.

Step1. Once you click on Finish Installation you will get confirmation window as below:

      Thanks for feedback. I prefer self hosted blog to Blogger blog. Blogger blogs are not so flexible as self hosted Wordpress blog.

  3. Paul Jean says:

    Nice tutorials! I absolutely like the detailed approach of this tutorials. Most bloggers prefer self hosted WP blog. Simply, because it is much better when in terms of availability of different WP plugins that are really useful to WP users.

  4. This is a detailed tutorial to create a blog with Fantastico and it is very helpful. However not every hosting provider use Cpanel and Fantastico. So EarnMoneyOnlineHubber, if you have time, you can make another post about the common way to setup a self-hosted WP blog.

  5. RROD says:

    Funny how I have been using Cpanel for years but never installed WP like this. I create a DB, add a user to the DB, edit the config.php file and that’s it. :)

    Great tutorial! It’s a shame that so many would-be bloggers decide not to self-host their own blog due to technophobia. Blogging is so much better when you actually OWN your domain and indeed your content rather than being at the mercy of a third=party host who can shut you down on a whim.

    • EarnMoneyOnlineHubber says:

      Thank you David for taking time to comment. Agree with you. Whoever is serious in online business, they should have their own hosting account.

    wordpress is so cool ! i guess there should be more tutorials about tips and tricks related to wordpress

  18. Posible says:

    thanks for the detailed information here. I think anyone can start a blog. i have a month old blog at http://www.naibayblog.com at which i started from scratch and i already customized it.

  19. Is it better to have your blog hosted on your site, or separately (with the articles linking back to the main site)? I seem to get varying opinions on this.

    • It depends actually. You can install Wordpress in the same hosting account. If you use another hosting account for the linking purpose, then this will definitely help your main site. But for that you will have to purchase 2 hosting account.

      Unless you don’t have many sites, I don’t think you should purchase 2 hosting account. Google count backlinks based on Unique Class C IP. Even though you create 100 backlinks from your blog to main site, Google will count just one since those links are from same IP.
