Setting Up a WordPress Site, with Hosting, in Under an Hour

Completely Free Course with Tons of Bonuses | taught by Derric Haynie

Course description

The entire course is open as part of the free trial.

After completing the course, if you like it and feel like donating, you can "purchase" it for $5.


Looking to start a new website or blog and wondering what the hell you need to do? Like exact step by step instructions?

This free course is the answer. In it, you'll learn domain and hosting best practices (and what domain and hosting even means), and I walk you through purchasing, linking, and setting up a basic WordPress site.

Sidenote: Wordpress is the best site to setup a new blog or DIY website. It's better than Wix, Weebly, or SquareSpace as it provides better scalability, has tons of free plugins (because it's open source), and is great for SEO, which will be the important next step you need to take to get people to actually visit your website.

This course does not require a ton of technical know-how, although you will need to follow some basic instructions for linking your domain to your host, installing Filezilla, changing your favicon, and a few other things. Don't worry, I will show you exactly how to do it, just follow along, and pause and rewind when needed.

Disclaimer: This course links to partner products, where, if you choose to use them, I will be paid a small fee at no additional cost to you, and in many cases, you will actually receive a discount (that we've negotiated with our partners).

What's up? I'm Derric. I co-founded SplashU, our online business incubator program, and SplashOPM, the first ever customer-centric startup incubator. I write, blog, speak, and breathe growth marketing. I love startups. I love the struggles that we all have at the beginning of a business, and the strategies we uncover to make our idea blossom into reality. I hate seeing waste and other people making mistakes (even though I still make plenty myself), and that's what drives me to do what I do.
