Building a WordPress Development Site on SiteGround
Creating a WordPress development site via SiteGround is a series of steps that need careful attention. If you follow the procedure accurately, you can have your site ready in no time.
Step 1: Securing a Domain and SiteGround Hosting
First thing’s first: you have to secure a domain and hosting. After purchasing, SiteGround will send you an email to guide you through the basic set-up of your account.
Step 2: Installing WordPress
On your SiteGround hosting account’s cPanel, locate and click the WordPress icon. It will prompt you to the WordPress installation screen and just follow the on-screen instructions.
Step 3: Logging into WordPress
After installing, you can now log into WordPress using the URL yourdomain.com/wp-admin (replace ‘yourdomain’ with your actual domain).
Step 4: Choose Your WordPress Theme
Once logged in, go to Appearance → Themes → Add New. You can select from thousands of themes available.
Step 5: Add Essential Plugins
Plugins extend the functionalities of your website. Depending on your needs, you can install SEO, security, page builder, and other plugins.
Step 6: Customize Your Site
You can start customizing your site by going to Appearance → Customize in your WordPress dashboard.
Step 7: Create Pages and Start Posting
From the dashboard, go to Pages → Add New to create your web pages. For blog posts, go to Posts → Add New.It might seem daunting at first, but with time you should be able to get the hang of it.
