EasyWP: How to create a WordPress site + Video

This article describes how to purchase an EasyWP subscription and 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 either a domain registered with Namecheap, an External Domain, pointed to FreeDNS, PremiumDNS or a Temporary domain if you want to use an external domain for the EasyWP installation further.

NOTE: If you want to create a website using an external domain at once, it should be pointed to our FreeDNS or PremiumDNS. In this case, you should choose the Domain on Namecheap option.

After that you will see the option to create a new website.

Step 1:

Domain on Namecheap

If you decide to use a free domain from EasyWP, enter the desired address of your website and click Continue:

NOTE: When you choose to use a free Domain to create your website, it will be accessible via a Temporary URL (e.g. blog-user.ewp.live where blog is the name of your site).

Domain on Namecheap

If you want to use one of your domain names registered with Namecheap, type the domain or choose it from the drop-down list and click the Continue button.

In case you want to choose an external domain for an EasyWP installation at once, point it to our FreeDNS, and the domain will appear in the Your Domain on Namecheap drop-down menu:

To proceed with your WordPress website creation, click Continue.

NOTE: If you don’t have a domain name registered with Namecheap, you can start with a temporary domain and change the domain for your installation later.

Step 2:

On the next page, you will be able to select a theme for your website (you can change it later via your WordPress dashboard):

Then, choose the most popular WordPress plugins or continue the installation without choosing a plugin:

NOTE: These plugins are chosen for you by us. However, you can install any WordPress plugin you choose from within your WordPress Dashboard.

To proceed with the installation, check the details and click Continue.

Your WordPress website will be ready in a few seconds. Once the installation is completed, you will receive an email with the access details to your contact email address.

That's it!
