So have these updated graphics in the new Bluehost WordPress install, and we just need to hit create account to get going Next we’re it’s time to create your password So we just have our domain name in there and choose any password that meets all their criteria. Try to make it strong Then check that box and then create your account All Right here making a good amount of progress Keep going with us here now Click go to login and it’s going to ask us a quick little test, which is do you remember the password you just made? so make sure you’re on hosting login and remember that password type it in and Now we’re gonna click login All right doing great guys stick with us here we’re almost to your WordPress blog Congrats I’m making it so far it’s a big commitment here you’ve taken and Really you’re setting yourself apart from so many other bloggers that decide to create a free blog Alright, so now let’s create a website with some details. So the first thing is just the name of your site, which is literally just whatever your site title is so, you know, it could be anything like you know Rick school toys or Jamie’s cool, whatever you want to call it. I’m out of ideas, but I just like calling it your domain name, you know Whatever’s in your domain name just put those words in the site title And then for your tagline, that would be like a slogan for your website. So, you know, maybe your favorite quote would work great there All right, and when you do this WordPress is gonna take that information and put it on your blog So you’ll see it once we log into WordPress All right, now it says do you want a blog well I thought we were making blog already Well, this will just make sure that you have blog posts in a certain location So, of course we want that and we’re gonna choose home page so that we have a list of blog posts on our home page and Then it says do you want an online store? Of course? Why not? I could definitely see us selling something like an e-book or some downloadable products or maybe a coaching guide later on All right, so there we have it and we’re gonna scroll down and we’re gonna hit continue So the WooCommerce store is just by WooCommerce, which is a plugin Next it’s time to tell us a bit more about you Luis is basically just trying to understand what sort of site you want to make This will help them recommend you themes give you better WordPress support through their blue sky They’re after a lot of upgraded support features So the more you tell them the better and they will read this and learn about your site so they can help you better Later on So of course, I’m just gonna check all of them. So we get all the options on the next screen Then it says are you comfortable with creating web sites well If you’re with me then yes, but you know after the video you might not be comfortable So we’re just gonna hit the very least one so that you get the most options for WordPress support on the next screen And you get a phone number there if you want to call them for help but Obviously you’re here with me and the YouTube comments are great. So now it’s time to pick a theme that expires you Inspires you not expires These are all great themes I can tell you about all of them as you can see there’s like five hundred and fifty nine of them So there’s really not time to explain all of them But if you want asking about any individual team, I’ll tell you what It’s good for why it’s good and maybe why it wouldn’t be for you I’ve used almost all these themes we see right here But we’re gonna skip this step because I want us to try out the default 2020 theme. It’s really cool And you should know how to use it All right. So before I can finish talking WordPress was installed. This is our dashboard. We’re gonna hit get started Then we’re gonna say no. Thanks for the domain privacy protection because we’re on a budget And before we know it we’re gonna be on the dashboard screen All right. I’m just gonna click away from here by clicking. Um, you know, I’m sure turn it off There we go now we’re gonna hit my sites in the upper left and in order to login we’re gonna click on manage site So this is like kind of a quick little health check on your site. Like how many themes you have? How many plugins? Basically, you’re sort of arsenal of tools You could say we’re gonna hit that button right there And then there’s us and we need to create a password and to do that. We need to hit login So here’s our little guy in a rocket ship and now we’re logged in Things that blew us go really fast guys. So if you need to stop the video and ask a question then please do so I’m just gonna close these little notifications here so that our dashboard is as simple as possible Dismiss that one and Yeah, welcome to WordPress you made it So here we are now and what I want to show you how to do is to go to users and change your password So click on users and then click on yourself Hit edit right there or just click on your name and then scroll down and under new password click generate password nailed it Now we’re just gonna make sure we hide it and click on any password you want Make it strong of course and come down and update it. So now you don’t have to use any other password You know your username, you know your password you can log in whatever you want We’re gonna click on the dashboard button in the upper left, which is also called our site title That takes us from the back end to the front end. So it goes from the dashboard To this site, which is basically how the world sees it. So this is what your work I say It looks like this is the theme it’s wearing obviously looks ok, but not that great And if you click on that button again in the upper left it goes back to our dashboard So it just kind of flips around like a pancake Alright, so that’s pretty cool if you notice in the upper URL bar there’s some weird temporary domain name some time like box 76 Blue goes just does that because they’re not sure like where your domain came from? So if you’re using a domain name from GoDaddy, they’re just gonna give you that so you can actually look at your site But we want to click on the blue host button and then we want to come down to hosting and now we’re gonna go to manage and this is gonna help us get rid of that weird like box temp domain thing because it should just say your domain name.com And you can also see how the dashboards connected to the Bluehost and so on and so forth Alright, so click on home and we can see right there in that little drop-down. We want to just say your domain name.com Like I mentioned before so click my sites Now we’re gonna click on manage site you guessed it now, we’re gonna click on settings and Under site URL. You’re just gonna delete what’s in there. If it’s not your domain name, just delete it and enter in HTTP colon slash slash You don’t need to do a WWE. Just enter in the words of your domain name followed by the dot-com org net Whatever and then click on Save updates So let’s make sure that when we visit your site It’s actually going to be your domain name and not something else that we get to look at to login now You can visit your domain name forward slash Wp-admin that’s just how everyone really does it these days. It’s just the standard for some reason Then popping your username and your password that you chose when we were in that users area Click remember me and bookmark it so you don’t forget this page and now we’re gonna click on login And here we go. Alright So the first thing we’re gonna do is change our theme we have a little bit of time left in the video a couple minutes These are the themes your site is wearing So it’s like all the default WordPress ones if you want to activate them You can just click on the activate button But if you click on the blue plus you can see all the themes WordPress comes with Through the internet through the WordPress library you click popular. These themes are powering like thousands of websites Astra is one of our favorites I’ll give you a video at the end on how to make a WordPress website with a strip But for now just go back to themes and we’re gonna select the default twenty twenty team Really cool really fast and really modern so click on a theme and click activate it to actually use it on your site This will change how everything looks Alright and now we can click on our site title and upper left and see that everything looks different and in the few seconds we Have left. I want to show you how to add a new blog post and Even upload an image so go to new post in the upper navigation Alright and this is the post editor And we’re gonna click on the little cursor at the top to add a title So welcome to the blog is always a good first post to have Explain what you want to write about and what people can stand to get So I don’t have time to write all that and we’re gonna do that later.
