    Hey all,


    I have used wordpress before but only for a .wordpress.com site. I have never used it to edit/build another site.

    I used namecheap to purchase a domain and also got hosting through them. How do I now get the site into wordpress to build it?

    Can I just start making a wordpress site and then change the URL/Domain name to the one I purchased?

    I hope I didn't mess up already, lol.

    1st step add your to domain to hosting - you do this by changing the name servers in your namecheap

    namecheap.com/support/knowledgebase/article.aspx/767/10/how-can-i-change-the-nameservers-for-my-domain


    2 In Your Web hosting control panel Add your Domain where it says Addon domain click that
    then type out your domain name


    3 Install wordpress

    Thanks a lot for the reply. I failed to see my email with the cp login and was just completely lost. Feeling like an idiot. Got it now!
