How to Install WordPress (using GoDaddy)

If you're not using GoDaddy, then feel free to let us know your hosting provider. In doing so, let us know what steps you took to get WordPress installed!

Here's a quick tip!

For those that purchased your domain from Google and are using GoDaddy for hosting, then you may be running into an issue with connecting the two. Fortunately, there is a really helpful comment by Nisan below.

For your convenience, here's the comment:

Hi Jarrett,

After I purchased hosting from GoDaddy and installed WordPress, I tried accessing my website, but I received an error message saying that my site did not exist. I got the same result when I clicked on the “wp-admin” link. I did some research and found out that I had this issue because I purchased my hosting from GoDaddy but I purchased my domain name through Google. I learned that I would have to connect the two before my site can go live. Connecting the two is relatively simple. I logged into my Google admin account and clicked the “Domain” option. Then I clicked manage domain > view details > manage domain > DNS (the DNS page). Once I landed on the DNS page, I had to call GoDaddy to obtain certain information needed to be updated on the DNS page. Once this one done, my webpage went live.

Note, in addition to the info for the DNS page, I asked GoDaddy to update my MX Records. Google told me that GoDaddy must update this in order for me google email account to remain active

I figured that some other viewers of you video might encounter this issue so I wanted to explain the solution. Please let me know if this helps.

Thanks,
Nisan
