All right hello and welcome back this is our next tutorial with Hostgator cPanel. Now you should have received your email with your username and password so that you can log in to your cPanel which is where all the magic happens on your host gator account.
So I’m just going to go ahead and login and pad ow this is the Hostgator cPanel now there’s all kinds of things that you can do from here but the only two things that we want to focus on is we want to get our name servers so that we can put them in our GoDaddy so make sure you have your GoDaddy account up in fact I’m going to go there now and I am going to pull that up I’m going to sign in and then I’m gonna go to my domains and I’m going to find the domain that we worked on and that is I mogul television there oops I passed you there you are I mobile television.
We’re going to manage hit manage I’m mobile television is going to take us to the settings page and we’re going to scroll down to nameservers and we’re going to manage click manage name servers okay and we’re gonna do um we’re gonna do the custom and we’re going to enter custom name servers okay so now we’re going to go back to Hostgator control panel and we’re gonna scroll down it’s gonna be on the left hand column that we’re looking at sidebar I guess you can call it and at the very bottom you’re gonna see where it says name servers we need to copy those two lines of code and we need to copy and paste them each line into the GoDaddy so I’m going to do one at a time I’m gonna copy the top one and then I’m gonna paste it in the top server line there and then I’m going to go get the second one and then I’m going to go back and copy it – Go Daddy and I’m gonna hit.
Okay and then I’m gonna hit and now it says hostgator and then I’m gonna hit save all right so the request that shows that the right hand top has been submitted it’s going to take a few minutes for it to take effect so what we’re going to do now is we’re going to create our WordPress now let me go over to wordpress.org so you can see that this is wordpress.org and this is where you can if you were just downloading it you can download a fresh copy of wordpress.org into downloaded onto your computer if you need to if you need to switch out your WordPress for whatever reason but this is how you would do it outside of a if you didn’t have a hosting and you had maybe your own servers you would download it and then upload it from your computer that way and it goes in to tell you about Hostgator Hostgator has been around I mean I’m sorry wordpress.org has been around for a long time and you own it once you you know you you get your hosting account.
This is your online home it’s your online hub your website your blog whatever you want to call it it’s your online hub that’s where you’re going to do your activities that’s where you gonna do your blogging that’s where you’re going to attract your your ideal client L you’re going to have your branding this is where you the magic is created so you don’t want to do something like this with a wordpress.com or some blog spot.com you don’t want to host your account well you won’t host it because it’s free but you don’t own it you want something that you own and wordpress.org is the originator it’s been around forever at least 2006.
I’m not sure what the history 2005 maybe earlier there’s a lot of other new apps for blogging apps posting or website apps posting like I think it’s a square peg or there’s all kinds of new ones popping up and a lot of those are limited on what you can do with web wordpress.org you’re not limited you can do whatever your mind can think of and that’s why I love it also a lot of the plugins and we’ll talk about plugins in a later tutorial a lot of the plugins have been made and designed all the good stuff have been designed for wordpress.org and plugins what plugins do their little bits of code that help to add or design certain things on your web page on your on your on your blog and sometimes you want to do something different you want to add some creativity you want to add some specialization on your blog that’s what a that’s what a plug-in does and a lot of these new systems don’t have that option because the since wordpress.org has been around for so long it’s a free what do they call it it’s a free community where people can create for WordPress and they’ve done that and that’s where the plugins have come in and I love plugins I mean I use the hell out of plugins sometimes it can cause trouble with incompatibility but it’s it’s not like it was when I first came on where you put a plug-in that wasn’t quite compatible with another plug-in and it broke your whole site and all hell all you saw was code lines of code when you try to log into your account now things are so much easier it’s plug-and-play nowadays you don’t have to learn any kind of code or anything like that it’s awesomesauce so I just wanted to show you wordpress.org so how we’re going to download the wordpress.org app we’re going to go back into now that we have our name savers directed to Hostgator our URL is now directed to Hostgator and we’re going to we’re going to pull up our wordpress.org and there’s a quick and easy way that they do it now that they didn’t use to do it before and let me see if I can find that line do you do to to to you you it’s one click it’s over here it is here it is one quick install it’s under the software services look tab down by the bottom and it’s a quick install so we’re going to click on that it should just log you in automatically let’s see if I have to press login anyway okay I’m back I’ve added my add-on account there’s a little extra stuff you have to do now because you won’t have to do that when you signed up for your hosting package you put your domain name in there after you paid for when you went in and you set it up and you created your payment and paid for it you put your hosting packet or your URL in there at that time so it should show up when you go in to your WordPress to create your WordPress account so I’m gonna go back into my wordpress account and hopefully this has worked.
I’m going to install my wordpress account and then i’m gonna go over here to look for my and there it is i mobile television yay there she blows I’m gonna use my random email my normal email we’re gonna call it i mogul i mogul yeah like hitting the spell television and evening clips I am the admin and first and last name all right so there we go I found I so I located my my url which year should be in there you shouldn’t have to do an add-on like I had to do and then I put my filled out my information here username and I put an admin user as me and then I’m just going to hit install WordPress and they are setting it up now okay says your install is complete click here to view your notifications so I’m going to click there and this is where they I don’t like the way they do this on with a lightbox or whatever you want to call this but I’m going to copy all of this they’re gonna mail this to me but I’m going to copy all of this so that I can make sure I paste it and email it to myself but I’m going to go directly I’m going to click directly to my WordPress panel and then we’re going to login so as it stated my username is April so when I go in I’m going to put my username and then I’m gonna put they give you a password which of course you’re gonna change this is not going to be the password you want to keep all right so copy that and let me just go in and once again copy all of this and paste it in a notepad really quick so that I don’t forget just in case you lose that page and then we’re going to login and voila voila that is.
I’m gonna hit save that is this is our wordpress wordpress dashboard okay so now in the next video we are gonna start customizing looking for a theme and customizing our website and so I’m really excited for the next videos it’s the the key part is over with this is the fun part where we actually get to design our website alright so that’s it thank you so much and I will see you in the next video you.
