Cheap Web Hosting | Hostinger Review Part 3: Installing WordPress

Keen to make the most out of your website in 2018? I’ve got good news.

This is part 3, continuing my review of Hostinger, aka the best cheap web hosting.

Follow me as I journal my discoveries while exploring the service.

Log in to Cpanel

We are logged in and the first thing we see is the Cpanel, the control panel.

It says my domain is not pointing to our name servers (I should have opted for the free domain during registration, but now I want to use my existing domain).

Let’s go and point my website domain to Hostinger’s name servers.

It takes less than 10 minutes to change the nameservers, but a few hours to take effect.

We cannot see the website in its respectable form before the change. Right now it’s just a bunch of unsightly advertisements on it.

When we refresh Hostinger’s Cpanel page, this is what we see.

Scroll down the Cpanel and we see management tools for Accounts, Emails, Domains, Website, Files, Databases and Others.

What we want to do right now is to get the website up and running with WordPress.

Go to Website Tools

In the Cpanel, scroll down to the set of Website tools.

On the Auto Installer page, we see a whole host of exciting software we can install.

We can create websites for e-commerce, content management, community building, surveys, photos, files and more.

WordPress is under content management and is obviously the most popular.

If you are into e-commerce, PrestaShop and OpenCart look popular here. They are free and open source e-commerce software.

Finally, click Install.

Let’s now check the website.

Ok, wait… it’s not showing.

So, actually, we need to wait for the name server change to take effect.

Will be back…
