GoDaddy is a popular domain registrar and hosting provider company. GoDaddy offers domain and web hosting plans at a cheap price. The installation process of WordPress on GoDaddy is quite easy. Being a beginner you can use the one-click installation software “Installatron” to easily install WordPress. The installation process is as simple as installing “Adobe Photoshop” on a computer.
In this guide, I have explained in simple guide language, so that even non-technical persons can learn. Installing WordPress is a very simple process, even you can install WordPress in less than five minutes.
What to do Before installing WordPress on GoDaddy?
Before installing WordPress on Godaddy, you must have a GoDaddy web hosting plan and a domain name. As GoDaddy offers domain names and web hosting plans at very cheap prices, you can also buy.
If you want to buy a new Web hosting plan for a WordPress site, we recommend Bluehost. They are one of the largest hosting company in the world, and they are also an official WordPress hosting partner.
For TechNeem users, they’re offering 50% off and a free domain name as well.
Now, if you are ready with a good web hosting plan and domain name, then you are also ready to install WordPress.
Login Hosting cPanel of Godaddy
There are two ways to login to GoDaddy Hosting’s Control Panel (cPanel). One is direct access to the control panel and the other is through a GoDaddy account.
How to direct access to cPanel account to install WordPress?
To login directly to the cPanel account, type the site URL in the address bar of the web browser and add “: 2082” or “: 2083” as a suffix. For example, your site URL is “www.example.com”, type it “www.example.com:2082” in the browser. If your site uses SSL certificate than use “: 2083: (www.example.com:2083) or if not using SSL then use”: 2082: (www.example.com:2082 ).
Now, you will be asked to fill in the login ID and password to access the cPanel account, for cPanel fill the same ID and password as the GoDaddy account. If you are unable to complete this process then you can also log in through a GoDaddy account.

I will guide you.
How to fill WordPress Installatron form to install WordPress
Select the domain for the drop-down for which you want to install WordPress.
Usually “blog” is the default text in the directory column. If you keep this text as it is, your URL will look like “http://www.example.com/blog” and a physical directory will be created on the server’s hard drive, the path will be like “/ home / yourcpanelusername / public_html / blog / “. In my case, I left it blank because it is an optional field.
If you are creating a blog, you can leave it blank because while blogging, you will need to create all the web pages related to the topic of your blog or if you are building a website for a company, then you can publish your blog on a separate blog page. Finally, if you are confused then leave it blank, you can set it later.
Keep this default.
Select your language.
WordPress (License agreement)
Select “I accept the license agreement”.
There are three options: 1. Do not automatically update, 2. Update to new minor versions and security releases. 3. Update to any new version. Here you are asking about how to update WordPress. If you are confused, keep it by default as you can change it anytime. In my case, I chose “Update to New Minor Version and Security Release”. My recommendation is “Update to New Minor Version and Security Release”.
WordPress Plugin Automatic Update
Set it as your choice or keep it default, you can change it later. In my case, I had chosen “Do not automatically update WordPress plugins” because there are some plugins that are inactive by me, I do not want to update automatically.
WordPress Theme Automatic Update
Set it as your choice or keep it default. You can always change this later. In my case, I chose “Do not automatically update a WordPress theme” because I was a beginner at the time and I was using a free theme. I did not want to update the free theme automatically, without knowing what changes have been made to the theme. Now, I am using a pro theme and I changed it to “update automatically”. As a beginner, you can also follow the same process.
Automatic Update Backup
TechNeem’s recommendation is to select the first option “Create a backup and automatically restore the backup if the update fails”.
Type and remember the username for your WordPress admin panel. You will need this username every time you log in to WordPress. The admin username can also be changed via cPanel.
Also, Type and memorize a password, you need it with administrator username to access the WordPress admin panel.
Type your email address in administrator email column.
Type Title name for your Blog or Company website like – “TechNeem”, “apple” etc.
Type a tagline of your blog or a company like – “Open Happiness” of Coca Cola, and “Think Different” of Apple, etc.

If you are confused about filling any column then you can keep it default and change it later. Finally, after filling the complete details click on the “+ Install” button. Now, Installatron will install WordPress, wait until the installation is complete. After the installation is complete, you will see the installed application in the “My Applications” tab, with its site URL on the tab of the “Installatron panel”.
Click on your site URL that has a prefix as “wp-admin” and looks like “http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin”. If you see a pop-up that says “Create a WordPress website”, click “No Thanks”.
If you will click on “Continue” it will take your website on “wordpress.com” instead “wordpress.org”. Read what is the difference between wordpress.org and wordpress.com.
After clicking “No Thanks”, you will be redirected to the WordPress admin panel. Now your WordPress is successfully installed.

For next time login WordPress admin panel, you need to type “http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin” in an internet browser.
