How to set up a WordPress Website using GoDaddy

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


This video shows you each step of the process to get a WordPress website or blog up and running in 5 minutes. Use my GoDaddy code “WOWEPR” to get 35% off of new orders This will take you through the process of searching for a domain name, purchasing that domain name, setting up WordPress specific hosting, connecting the domain name with the hosting plan, and initiating access to your website. All functions are completed on GoDaddy.

Hi Erik,

Thanks for the great video. Was wondering, is it possible to take a
site/blog that’s already built in WordPress and then connect it to GoDaddy?
Friend of mine has an existing site on GoDaddy (with their website builder
tool) and we’re building her a new site which is currently sitting at a . URL. Can I use the steps in your video to connect the new
wordpress site to the godaddy domain and hosting or will it erase the
changes we’ve made?

Hello Kabir – you can download WordPress from their .org website and
install it after you have set up your web hosting. Alternatively, you could
sign up for GoDaddy’s WordPress hosting and they will install it for you.
