How To Install WordPress
Two ways (manual and App center) you can install WordPress on 1&1 host. But in this tutorial, I will only share how can you install WordPress through 1and1 App center.
So let’s start step by step tips…
Fist of all you have to login 1&1 with your registered email or customer ID and password.
After that click on the ‘Contact Overview’ which located left sidebar of the control panel.
But If you have a single contact or website hosting package, you can directly click on ‘1&1 App Center‘
Select WordPress application then click Install Application.
Now you have to type your website title in the create website title box
After that click ‘create website’ blue button.
After creating website name, you have to enter your WordPress site login username and password see (A, B). So put a username and strong password for better security.
Tik the Terms and Conditions link round box (C) and finally click the ‘Continue’ button.
After completing the step number 6 you will see two options to install WordPress in your 1and1 host. Now you have to decide which WordPress installation mode you want to choose.
Tips: If you want to install many themes or plugins on your WordPress site, you have to choose the WordPress standard mode, whereas your Theme and plugins installation will be limited to manage mode. I recommended to you choose a standard mode.
So choose your Installation mode and click ‘Install WordPress’
Now you have to select a domain from your 1&1 package. After that click ‘Assign Domain’ button.
After clicking Assign Domain you will see a new interface. Now wait a few seconds for completing WordPress setup on your 1and1 host.
After finishing the installation you will see the interface below.
Now your installation process is complete. And your website is ready for use.
If you want to login WordParess, you can click on the ‘admin area’s link’ (see the above screenshot) or type URL www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin in the browser tab.
After that, put your WordPress username and password which you have entered the step number 5.
Manual and App center both ways you can install WordPress on 1&1 host. But the App center process is better than a manual process. So before installing WordPress, you should decide which process you like. But I highly recommend you to use App center.
