The process of installing WordPress on GreenGeeks is very simple and easy. Here below are the steps you need to go through to install WordPress on GreenGeeks.

Step 1. Select Your GreenGeeks Hosting Plan

First, you need to choose a hosting plan. Go and check out my step-by-step GreenGeeks sign-up guide here for how to do that.

I recommend the GreenGeeks Lite plan, as it’s the cheapest and easiest plan to start with (as I’ve explained here).

Step 2. GreenGeeks Quick Launch Wizard

In your order confirmation email, you’ll find your login details.

Now, log in to your GreenGeeks dashboard. Once you are logged into the GreenGeeks dashboard you’ll be taken to the Quick Launch Wizard.

The Quick Launch Wizard will give you 4 options, from here you want to select “Start New Website“, and select “WordPress” as the app.

Step 3 – Create Your WordPress Site

Next, it’s time to create your WordPress site.

In this step, you are asked to give your new WordPress site a title and description (you can also do this or change this, later), and give you the option of configuring SSL.

Next, you are asked to select a WordPress theme and install optional plugins (you can always change this later).

One reason I love GreenGeeks (apart from the cheap price) is their use of LiteSpeed. It’s a server technology that is guaranteed to boost your WordPress website’s performance, speed, and security. Learn more about LiteSpeed hosting here.

The LiteSpeed cache plugin will always be installed by default.
