How To Install WordPress On WPX Hosting

Jason Moss:

Hey, welcome back, Jason Moss here again. And in the last video we set up a WPX hosting account. In this video I’m going to show you how to install WordPress on your domain and your WPX hosting account. So let me drop down here real quick and let’s get started. So we are inside of our new WPX hosting account. And last night I showed you that this was pending. Let me tell you why that was. It was because when I went through the checkout process, I actually did not check out fully. I, I thought I had paid but I didn’t. So you go through the process, but once you’re in here, you need to go over to the invoices section and you’ll see it used to say on paid. So then you click on that invoice and then you pay with PayPal, you can do either to subscription or onetime payment.

Jason Moss:

If you do the one time, then you have to just keep paying it every single month. Of course. Okay. so that is all done though. Everything is good to go. Once you get the invoice paid, you will see this. It’ll say active. Okay? And I’ll say like manage all sites in this account. So let’s get started real quick. You just hop in here, you can go to your dashboard. It’s going to pull this up. Manage all sites in this account. Once you’re in here, you’re going to see a page like this with your domain, of course. All right? And you can see some of the things are blurred out right now. You know, that’s just for privacy reasons. But the first thing you’re going to want to do and that you have to do is you have to grab your name servers. Now every account’s going to have different name servers.

Jason Moss:

Like you might see something different here. That’s perfectly fine and normal. Okay? So you’re going to want to copy this first name server, all right? And then you’re going to go over to where your domain is registered. Now if you registered your domain with WPX, it’s going to be a simpler process because it’s, you won’t even have to do this cause it’s all you registered with WPX, they change it for you automatically. Okay. But my domain is registered with Namecheap so, and this goes forward if you have it with Namecheap or go daddy or anybody else. Okay. since I have it with Namecheap, I’m going to go to my account here and you can see here is my domain JW moz.com. I’m going to click on manage

Jason Moss:

And once this pulls up, then I’m going to enter in those name servers. All right. And here we go. You come down to name servers right now it is on name cheaps. They’re hosting it at the moment because there’s nothing on this website. So you click on here, click on custom DNS and you have named server one and two, drop it in named server one that you just copied. I just paste the second one in there and change this because the other one was 45. Go back, double check that. Yeah. And ask 45 okay, so there we go. Make sure you hit the little check Mark, which is the save

Jason Moss:

And you are good to go on your registrar side of things. Okay. And we can head back over. Okay. There saved says it could take up to 48 hours to take effect with propagation. Yes, that is correct. But usually it takes, you know, just a few minutes, maybe an hour or so. Okay. But once you have those name servers change, come back here and we’re going to go to websites. Okay. And you can see this account only has five websites allowed on it. So this is number one. All right? First thing we’re going to do is install WordPress installed WP. Very simple. You just click the button. You don’t have to mess with any of the C panel stuff. That’s the best thing about WPX hosting. They don’t have C panel. It’s their own custom system, which makes it much easier. All right. You can see it looks like you don’t have any existing installs under this domain, so just go ahead and click install WordPress. All right. It’s gonna pull up some information and let’s see here. Let’s make sure on some of this, yeah, your database, you don’t need to change anything there. You can just use the default admin email. That’s probably going to be default for everybody unless you do want to change it, the username you are going to want to change that. So you can change it to whatever you want

Jason Moss:

And then your password, obviously you want to make that all right. And the next thing you do, once you have your password and your admin entered in there, you just go ahead and click on deploy WordPress. Okay. And it is finished. This pops up, it took all of a minute there. It gives you your admin user that you created. And then the password which I hit generate password on their little form. So it just generated me a password here. Make sure to copy that. Of course. All right, you can X out of that. We can go to the website. Let’s check something here.

Jason Moss:

Okay, so it’s not ready at the moment. I’m going to pause the video and I’ll resume when it is ready. All right. That didn’t take long at all. You can see if you come over to JW moss.com, the website is up. This is just the standard, a WordPress default, you know, thing that they put up there on a new installation. You can see that it is not secure. When I install this, it did the SSL option automatically for me. So I’m guessing that that’s just taking a little bit of time. Sometimes that SSL certificate takes a few minutes to propagate fully. Sometimes if I refresh it here, it’ll be secure. But everything’s good to go. We can log into this now and let’s see. I was put this information in,

Jason Moss:

Make sure everything is correct. Okay, perfect. So everything is logged in. All right guys, it’s been just a few minutes and the site is now secure. I checked with their support which I’ll show you in just a second. And they said it would take a few minutes to propagate fully like I mentioned, but you can see up here in the the URL bar, it is now secure. You can click on it, connection is secure. So that was done automatically. I don’t know many other hosts that install an SSL for you automatically. And a lot of them don’t even do it for free. Okay. This is all for free. It’s all included which is awesome. But here’s the thing, I was in here looking around and I noticed because WPX is all about speed. All right? They, they, you know, label themselves as like the fastest host out there.

Jason Moss:

That’s one of the reasons I love them. But if you look, they installed a, this was automatic. They installed the w three total cache plugin automatically. So I was curious, did they you know, add in some settings in there automatically? So I checked with their their support and this is where WPX stands apart from every everybody else by far. Okay. Check this out. So they had a little chat window here and they always say they’re online. It’s 24 hours. Okay, so I’m logged into my account so there’s nothing else I have to do. He says, hi Jason, how can I help you and guys look at the timestamps here. Okay, look at the timestamps and how much time passes. All right. I took a second to reply. I asked him a question if that cache plugin automatically is configured cause there’s a lot of settings in that cash point.

Jason Moss:

He said you have to configure it. It’s not automatic. And he gave me this link so I clicked over onto this link and it’s like super simple to do. They, they lay it out for you very easy. There’s one thing that you have to install and you just have to hit the import button on the plugin. I’ve actually done it manually and it was super, it took me all of a minute. Okay, but look what WPX does. Okay. Close that. I don’t even prompt him for this. All right. He gives me the link and then he says, you can download the settings and import it. Of course, we can always assist you with this. Okay? If you guys have never had a host before, like with any other websites you won’t realize how awesome this is. Okay. Because no other host website hosts goes out of their way to help you with things like this. All right? It’s awesome. So I said, so you can install the setting for me. He said, sure, Jason, all I need is the WP admin credentials, you know, the username and the password. So I supplied that for him there.

Jason Moss:

All right? He said, thank you. Let me check please. Settings are sucks. Sex successfully imported. All right? This was not even a minute. It wasn’t even 30 seconds. 1154, 1155 and boom, he’s done. Okay. Just like that.

Jason Moss:

All right. And then of course I asked him about the SSL and he said it would just take a minute or so, which it did. But that is why I loved WPX. They will go out of their way to help you with anything on your website. Hey there, they’re not going to design or build your website of course, but anything technical, they’re going to help you with things like that. Okay? They do things like when you need to change records on your domain, if you know what that is, like if you get like a G suite account or something like that, you have to put all these different records in your domain. And they will do it all for you. No other host does that and no other host makes it easy to talk to support you have to do like submit support tickets and wait for people to call you and stupid stuff like that. With WPX, it’s one little chat window and boom, you’re chatting with them literally within 20 to 30 seconds. It’s, it’s amazing, but everything is set up on the domain. WordPress is installed, everything’s good to go. You are ready to start building your website. But hope this all makes sense. Hope it is helpful to you and you can see why WPX is awesome. If you have questions or comments below just leave it and I will get them answered for you, but I will see you in the next video. Thanks guys.
