Easy Ways to Install WordPress on cPanel

Creating a website with the WordPress platform is quite easy, especially with the Softacolous installer application. In addition, make sure you already have a registered hosting domain.

If you don’t have it, please buy at an Indonesian domain hosting provider and make sure the panel you buy uses cPanel. Because there are various other hosting panels that exist today such as Plesk, DirectAdmin, Zpanel, SEO Panel, Cyber Panel and others.

Login cPanel

The first step, please log in to your cPanel account. Username and password are usually provided by the hosting provider you rent. If you buy domain hosting at Qwords.com, after the payment process is complete you will get information about the username and password to login to cPanel. There are 2 ways you can do this, namely by:

  • http://yoursite.com/:2082
  • http://yoursite.com/cpanel

Setting Name Server

Especially for those of you who buy a domain and hosting in a different place, you must point the hosting name server to the domain first. After that you can wait until the DNS propagation process is complete, which usually takes about 1 × 24 hours. If you buy domain hosting in one place, ignore this second method.
