How to build your website.
How do I setup my website from scratch?
If any of you have been having trouble setting up your website from scratch here is a simple step process to help setup your website from beginning to end.
1) Registering your Domain
First go to Godaddy.com Or any other domain provider of your choice.
2) Adding your hosting to your domain
After you’ve registered your domain name you’ll need to setup your hosting. Godaddy usually offers a hosting option that will help your website go live instantly. LondonThemes uses godaddy for it’s hosting, This will be my recommendation. Another alternative is buying your hosting elsewhere and adding the DNS(Domain Name Servers) to your domain. Clicking on the domain name brings this option up.
3) Installing WordPress to your website.
Once your hosting is setup you’ll need to go to WordPress.org and download the latest version of WordPress the download link is usually located in the top right of WordPress.org website. Once you’ve done this install it using either FTP or you can get Godaddy to add this for you.
3-A) Installing WordPress using a Ftp.
My recommended program for installing WordPress via Ftp is FileZilla. Enter your Host(Ftp Url) should look like this ftp.yourwebsite.com After add your hosting Username and Password and you’ll be logged into your hosting. Drag the file’s from the .zip file you downloaded from WordPress.Org afterwards visit your website and follow the installation steps. Please be sure to have your Database setup using MySql so WordPress will know which database your using for your Website.
3-B) Installing WordPress Godaddy
4) Adding your WordPress Theme to your WordPress Website
Now that you have WordPress installed your ready to install your WordPress Theme. There are 2 ways to add a WordPress Theme.
4-A) Install WordPress Theme in admin area.
Click Appearance >> Themes >> Install Themes >> Upload(The Blue link right under install theme’s tab. Once you click this it will bring you to a page for you to upload the .zip theme file. This is only the theme zip file not the entire content’s you download from LondonThemes. The theme file can be found inside the zip you downloaded from LondonThemes. Example: broadcast-theme.zip
4-A) Install WordPress Theme Via Ftp
Once you’ve logged into your ftp, upload the .zip theme file to your wp-content/themes/ hosting folder you’ll need to be logged into your ftp to see your wp-content/themes folder.
