When you register domain name and have it hosted you will get hosting
information of your site. It is this information you need to link to your
Let‟s use this domain name: http://www.bizexperttraining.com as
example for the rest of this lesson.
Here is the link to cpanel –
When you get your webhosting details, you will have been given a
username and password, this is the username and password you will
use to sign in into your cpanel. Note: The above information is for
explanation only. Don‟t try to play funny game with it. Now let‟s login
to your new cpanel http://www.bizexperttraining.com/cpanel.
If you type that URL in your browser you will see a pop up asking for
your username and password. Login with your username and password
and click „ok‟ button. It will direct you to your cpanel. Just like you can
There are a lot of things you can do with your cpanel.
The application that we need to install your blog site is called „fantastico
De Luxe‟. You will see it in your cpanel. Let me give you its exact
picture, when you scroll down your cpanel
Click on that blue icon above „fantastico de luxe‟ which I have
embedded in a square. It will take you to fantastico main page below:
You will see the wordpress software. Click wordpress and it will take
you to the next page where you can install your first blog site. The next
page looks exactly like this:
You will see the size of your website and see how much spa
ce is needed for your blog, the normal size for a blog is 9.02MB as you
can see above, if you have enough space, then you will click on New
From the above picture you can see that there are several boxes. Some
are filled with text already while others are not. Now let‟s fill the
Study Diagram below:
The first box already has your domain name filled automatically.
Second box is empty. You will have to leave it empty except if you are
not installing your site on the root directory. If your site is install on your
root directory, what it means is that whenever people type in
www.yourdomainname.com they will see your site.
However, if you have a static site on your root directly (i.e homepage)
already. You can install your blog site on new directory. In that case you
will put the name you want to call that directory in the second box.
Otherwise leave it empty.
Third box - suggest username here. You will need this to login to your
blog site admin where you can make changes on your site. This login
information may be different from your cpanel login info.
Fourth box - suggest password here. You will need this to login to your
blog site admin where you can make changes on your site. This login
information may be different from your cpanel login info.
Fifth box - put your nickname here. This is the name that the newly
install site application will recognize your post with. For example on one
of my site my nickname is Naijapreneur. If you've visited
http://www.youthsbusiness.com before you must have seen this several
Sixth box - is filled already. NO need to change it.
Seventh box - is filled already. NO need to change it. However, if you
don't want to use your domain name as your site name you can change

sentence summarize what your site is all about. Or in short phrase tell us
what your site visitors will benefit.

You still have two more steps to take. So let us continue……
Here is the next page you will see after clicking that – Install Wordpress
in the last action step.
On that page all you have to do is to click on – finish installation.
That will take you to this next page:
With the last action step, you finished installation of your site. Note this
link on the picture above: http://bizexperttraining.com/wp-admin that is
the link to our new admin panel; where we can edit and make changes
on our new site.
Your own will look like
At this point you have two options.
1. To just copy down that the URL (i.e. your blog site admin).
2. You put your email address in the next email box in red circle to have
the same login info sent to you automatically. I prefer this option. At
least you will have the record.
Now the installation detail is on its way to your email box.
You have accomplished the first part of this process.
Let‟s look at the outcome here: Open a new window and type in your
domain name there. i.e. www.yourdomainname.com
Here is the picture of my own newly installed site.
Take note of the 3 circles I put on that page. They are the first changes
we have to make on your site. That information is auto-generated.
Now lets login to your Blog Site Admin to start giving your site a new
look. Did you still remember the right URL?
You get it – it is - http://yourdomainname.com/wp-admin (remember
you will have to change yourdomainame.com to your new domain
Alternatively if you don‟t want to use that URL every time to login to
your admin area, you can click on „login‟ link from your site homepage.
See diagram below –
Whichever way you login here is the next page you see – you admin
Before we start editing, let‟s first discuss important parts of this admin
area. Check the diagram below –
Let us quickly explain each of the above numbered items in your blog
site admin area.
Number 1 - Dashboard: This is the main panel of your site. You can

yourself a gift. Or at least you need to clap for yourself. You have just
completed the first editing stage.
HOW TO CHANGE YOUR BLOG SITE THEME.
What is a THEME? It is another word used for template. A complete
ready-made site you can change your new site to anytime. You can get
lots of themes online and you can change it as many times as you want.
You can get theme from internet by searching for it using google.com
„wordpress theme‟ in the search box. Here is a site that I got from my
search http://themes.wordpress.net/ you will get more site when you
search for it yourself.
When you get your new theme, download it and save it on your
computer desktop. Most often this new themes come in .zip file format
which means you will need software like WinZip to unzip it. However,
if your system is on window xp or above you don‟t need WinZip to open
the theme you download.
You can get WinZip from http://www.winzip.com/. Just download and
install it on your pc if you need it.
Lets assume you have been able to download the theme of your choice
and unzip it successfully, you will be left with a yellow folder on you pc.
You can now upload it. To upload new theme to your domain you need
ftp software. There are several ftp software applications available online.
We use filezilla here in our office. If you don‟t have any at all, you can
also download a copy of filezilla from here:
See how it looks like below-
If you just download a copy of ftp software, you will have to install it on
your pc. Once it‟s installed you can launch it by double clicking on it or
you right click on it and open. I have old version of filezilla on my pc.
The new version icon will look different from what you see in above
diagram. But it‟s still the same thing. We use both versions. When you
login you will see something like this:
From the above diagram, you can see ‘local site’ which is where you
can find every file on your pc. Most often I download file to upload on
my desktop. If you also download your new theme on your desktop, if
you click on „Desktop‟ under „local site‟ box below it, you will see
another box called ‘filename’. From the above example, you can see the
new theme I want to upload that I just locate there. It is called „arclite
1.5. That is the new theme file I will be uploading.
On the other side of the same diagram above there is a „Remote site‟
where you can find everything on your site domain. When you look at
the diagram very well, the arrow points to „www‟ which is where you
upload every file that you want to make available to the public.
So here is the next action step. First double click on „www‟ yellow
When you double click on that „www‟ yellow folder here is what you
You will click on the wp-content and this is what you will get
You will have to double click on „theme‟ yellow folder to upload new
theme on it.
A customized theme can then look like the site below after it has been
uploaded and activated compared to the default theme. I have added
samples of different themes that you can use for your site in this
I want you to take note of something very important in that diagram. It is
‘plugins’. That is where you upload plugins. We will discuss more about
Now, double click on „theme‟ yellow folder to open it so that you can
now upload new theme in it.
Once you locate the theme you want to upload from above. Right click
on it and click on upload. That is it. But uploading is just one step, you
have to login to your wordpress admin, Click on APPEARANCE and
then THEMES, locate picture of your newly uploaded theme, and click
on it before you can view it as your new site look. See how my new site
Now, I can start uploading articles, creating categories, edit blogroll,
change the header picture, add more plugins and start promoting my site.
Before we discuss how to add articles (i.e contents) to your new site, lets
briefly discuss about “plugins”
How to upload and activate plugins.
There are different types of plugins available online. Many are being
created daily. They perform different functions.
Here is a list of popular plugins according to wordpress:
You will follow the same procedure when uploading plugins. But
instead of opening „theme yellow folder‟ in the diagram below, you
open „plugins yellow folder‟ to upload plugins in it.
After you‟ve uploaded the plugins, you will have to activate it before it
can have effect on your site. To do this, login to your wordpress admin
area again and click on ‘Plugins’.
How to add content to your new blog site.
Number one reason why people will visit your website is to read
information you have on it. There are several ways to come up with
quality information to post on your new site.
You can write it yourself
Pay somebody to write it for you
Buy plr (private label right) articles and edit it.
Before you start posting content on your site, it is good to create few
categories first. We‟ve already discussed how to create categories above.
Let us start posting content (articles) on your site.
Login to your blog site admin area, click on post, then click on add new
Follow the diagram below for more explanation:
You will follow the same procedure when you want to create a page like
‘about us’, ‘contact us’ etc But in this you click on ‘write page’
instead of ‘write post’.
How to Change Graphics header of your blog site and have it
Most of the free wordpress theme comes with a graphics header that is
only color and text just like this:
That may be ok with you. But some people prefer designing a complete
graphics header that has picture of themselves (if it is a personal site) or
picture of something that relates to their site idea plus text. If you belong
to this second class, get somebody to create your graphics header for you
if you can‟t create it yourself. When creating graphics for new theme
you have to take note of the following:
1. The size of the graphics header that comes with the theme – width and
2. The name with which it is saved and files extension.
When you have the graphics file on your computer ready for upload. Get
your site ftp software e.g. filezilla and login.
Under your remote site column - click on www - then click on wp-
content - next click on 'themes' here you will see folders for themes
that are already on your server. Click the current theme showing on your
site and double click it to open it. When it opens, go to the ‘local site’ of
your ‘filezilla’ software and locate new graphics file from your
computer. Right click on it and click on upload.
It will over-right current graphic header that comes with the theme.
Refresh your website. You will see the change.
