Mentoring: How to Install WordPress

Installing WordPress can be done in a number of ways, so it is important that you understand the pros and cons of each method:

1. Fantastico Deluxe

Many web hosts provide the Fantastico service for installing website scripts and it is really simple to use. You can get a WordPress blog setup in just a few minutes using this method. You simply answer a few questions and the Fantastico script does all the work for you. However, it is certainly not the best method as far as security is concerned, so it is an option I do not recommend.

2. Upload and Configure it Yourself

The above video provides an excellent tutorial on how you can upload and configure WordPress yourself. Before you start, you will need to have purchased a domain and hosting. The domain is your URL ( and the hosting service is what you need to store your website online.

3. Get Someone to Install it For You

This may surprise you, but there are some hosting companies that will actually install and configure WordPress for you – completely free of charge. For example, the following service will do the whole installation for you, for free, provided you purchase hosting from them. It’s a great way to get yourself started quickly and with relatively little hassle: Cheap Web Hosting

Whichever method you choose, if you want to start making money online, get yourself a WordPress Blog setup. It is definitely the right choice.
