EasyWP: How to create a WordPress site

This article describes how to create your WordPress site in a few clicks.

Once subscribed to EasyWP, you will be prompted to create your new WordPress site:



You can use a FREE address (e.g., yourdomain-yournamecheapusername.easywp.com) or one of your domain names registered with Namecheap.


Step 1:

Use a FREE address
Use a domain name registered with Namecheap


Use a FREE address

If you decide to use a FREE address, enter the desired name of your website and click Done:



NOTE: When you choose to use a FREE address to create your new website, it will be accessible via a FREE URL (e.g. blog-user.easywp.com where blog is the name of your site).


Use a domain name registered with Namecheap

If you want to use one of your domain names registered with Namecheap, click on the domain name:



NOTE: If you don’t have a domain name registered with Namecheap, you can buy one by clicking Buy Domain:



You will be redirected to a confirmation page to confirm that the EasyWP application is allowed to change DNS records for your bare domain name (e.g., yourdomainname.com) and www subdomain (e.g., www.yourdomain.com):



To proceed with your WordPress site installation, click Confirm.

NOTE: Once you confirm the changes to your domain name it will be pointed to your new EasyWP WordPress site. A content on your previous site (if you have any) will not be shown on your domain anymore.

When using a real domain, DNS changes can take some time to propagate.


Step 2:

To proceed with your WordPress website creation, click Create WordPress Website or select Show Advanced Options to get access to your WordPress site settings such as website title, website admin username/password, suggested plugins/themes, etc.:



If you choose Show Advanced Options, you will see the following page:



WordPress Settings

  • Website Title – desired name for your website
  • Admin address – your site's admin email address. This is your Namecheap account contact email address by default.
NOTE: A valid email address is required. Otherwise, you will not be able to retrieve a lost password in your WordPress admin area.

  • Username – your website's admin username. This is your Namecheap account username by default.
NOTE: Only lowercase and alphanumeric characters are allowed.
