Your hosting account comes with the ability to add applications, such as WordPress in just one click. OK, 2-3 clicks if you want a more custom install. But still pretty quick. Here’s how.
Finding an Application
- Login to your cPanel control panel
- Scroll down to the last section. Here you’ll see some common applications. You can click View More to see all available applications
- You can then use the search in the top right of the screen to find your application or scroll through all of the applications on the page
- Click the application you want to install then hit install this application
Check through the details. If you want to install in the root of your site (so this becomes your main website, be sure to leave the directory blank. If you want this to be an extension of your main site i.e. example.com/my-application, then the name of the sub-directory on the directory box.
You then just need to review the options, agree to the licence, set your admin credentials and click install.
This will take a few second to complete. You’ll then see a page that shows you it’s all done and details (including how to get to the admin panel). Make sure you keep this information safe.
That’s it. It’s really easy to install applications on your web hosting account.
