WordPress is the most widely used method to build a blog because it’s easy, flexible, and has the ability to build a truly awesome website. One of the most important things you can do for your site is to keep it updated.
Without updating your WordPress website, you are putting it at risk of being hacked, crashing, or an overall decline in performance. In this video, we will show you how to update your WordPress install, your WordPress theme, and your WordPress plugins. Before performing any of these updates, make sure to back up your website! We’ll show you how to do that too.
Ready To Start Your Website?
One of the most common complaint (or excuse) I hear from potential new bloggers and website owners is they don’t know how to install the software. Terms like FTP and CPanel are like a foreign language and setting up a database might as well be setting up the space shuttle for a launch.
This technology barrier has now been removed thanks to HostGator’s new 1 Click WordPress Install feature. However, if you still feel a bit antsy about doing the install, then let me do it for you.
To get the free WordPress installation service, all you have to do is order a web hosting plan from HostGator. Then forward me the login information to johnchow [at] johnchow.com and I’ll install WordPress for you. Afterwards, I’ll email you back the login information for your new WordPress blog and you can start blogging!
