We will set up your hosting and install WordPress for FREE

webhosting and wordpress setupOne of the most common questions we get is from those who haven’t started a blog yet, but are stuck on the hosting setup and getting wordpress installed.

I will admit, setting up a self-hosted blog can be a little intimidating for beginners and I still remember what it felt like with my first blog. But now that we have done this for dozens of blogs, we have the process down.

Since this is such a frequent request from readers we decided to launch a free WordPress blog setup program where we will…

  1. Set up hosting for your blog on your server
  2. Install the latest version of WordPress
  3. Make key SEO tweaks to your WordPress blog
  4. Install some plugins that we find most helpful

And we will do all this for FREE?!

What is the catch?

The only catch is that you have to buy hosting (using our link) with one of our recommended web hosting companies. By doing so, we will get paid a commission for the referral and you will get a great web host and a fully functioning and optimized WordPress blog free of charge. Win-Win!

How do I get started?

If you are interested, just follow these steps below…


Step 1

Go purchase your domain name from Namecheap.com (using this link). It should cost about $10/year.

(If you already have a domain name purchased, just skip to step 2)


Step 2

Go sign up for a hosting package at HostGator.com (using this link). When the HostGator homepage loads click the button labeled “View Webhosting Plans” as seen below.

Next, you can select a hosting package. If you are just starting out the Hatchling package should be fine. You can save more money by signing up for a longer term.

Now if you have already purchased your domain name you can enter it like seen below…

Now just continue to follow the steps to create your account and make your first payment to Hostgator.


Step 3

Once you have signed up and paid for your hosting package, just fill out this form below.

Step 4

Sit back and relax. We will take it from here.

We should be able to get your hosting installed and blog setup within 2 business days. We will then email you with your username and PW – each of which you can immediately change.

Please keep in mind that we are only helping you get your blog set up so you can start posting. We can’t help with layout, design, or formatting tweaks.

      Elliot, we need the info to log in to get everything set up, without it we wouldn’t be able to complete the setup. Once complete we delete the emails and we recommend that users change the passwords at Hostgator as well.

    I you can set me up from where you live, does that mean that I don’t have to have my own internet or even my own machine to do this. I have been thinking about blogging as my job for a long time. I signed up for adsense on a blogspot blog and can’t get the adds to the page, the librarian at my smalltown library even let me turn the cookies on and I still couldn’t get it to work. It may not be my thing but I am not ready to give up yet. Thank you very much

      In theory it would be possible to get going blogging without having your own machine, but to be honest as much time as most bloggers spend at a computer I would say that it would be very difficult to do it without your own. I would suggest looking at a thrift store or in classified ads, as you can probably find a 2-3 year old machine that will be good enough and may only be $50 or $100.

    I left a comment the other day, and now I don’t see it. Do you know what happened?

    • Jonathan

      Hi Michael, I am not sure. Was it on this page?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-De-Rosa/1227764327 Michael De Rosa

    I just emailed you through the contact page of this site with my same concern. An hour ago, I reposted my question here, but when I went back just now, I did not see it.

  • Michael M

    Just e-mailed you. Looking forward to my new blog up and running :)

    I have already set up my site and wanted to know if there was anyway that you might be willing to take a look at it and make suggestions.

    Amazing write-up! This could aid plenty of people find out more about this particular issue. Are you keen to integrate video clips coupled with these? It would absolutely help out. Your conclusion was spot on and thanks to you; I probably won’t have to describe everything to my pals. I can simply direct them here!

  • Perry

    Hey, this sounds great! Can you link a few examples of blogs that look similar to what you will set up for us? Thanks.

    Getting all this set up is about 1/10th of the 101 course. The rest of the course includes training videos on how to use wordpress and additional tweaks, etc…

    I already have a self-hosted WordPress blog hosted at Go Daddy. However, I want to move the hosting to Host Gator. If I sign up for hosting with them, would you be willing to move the hosting for me and perform the SEO tweaks you mentioned?

    I have a huge question: I have two blogs Sweet Peas & Buddies and A Traveling Thought. both are blogger blogs, but I have been toying with the idea to move them to WordPress because the longer I work on the BPU 201 stuff, the more I wish I was using the same platform and stuff. Right now they are sweetpeasandbuddies.com and travelingthought.com. Can I switch them over to WP and still have their addressed be the same? What do I do? I don’t want to lose the little traffic that I have and yet, I want to grow as I learn more from you guys!
