It sounds like a daunting task, however it is very simple. To install WordPress using Fantastico in cPanel hosting is by far the easiest way to get the job done. I wish I could have found a video tutorial like this when I was struggling to work it out some years ago.
If your website hosting comes with a cPanel that includes Fantastico then you are laughing. You can have a website installed within minutes. Hosting such as Hostgator and Just host can help you out with this.
If you plan on building a WordPress website from scratch or even many WordPress websites like I do, you definitely want to make the job easy for you by finding the right WordPress website host. As you can see in the picture below, I have hosting that has a feature called Fantastico which allows me to install WordPress at the push of a button.
This is what you see when you are in your hosting cPanel. If you click on the Fantastico link you will be able to install not only WordPress, but in many other website templates.
You can see all of the details by watching the video above. You can also download my details free PDF report about how to build a WordPress website.
