In this video, I’m going to show you how to set up your website on a flywheel. Now the process of setting up a website is quite straightforward, but a flywheel is a bit different. That is why I chose to set it up here. But, but he set it up on SiteGround. It is much, much easier. All right.
Let me show you how so, so you’ve logged into your control panel. All you have to do is to come over here to create a new site. Next you want to start off with a demo site because this is the site that you can move over to make it live. Once you’re done with the design and you get 14 days here to host this side for free.
I would start off with the 14 days before your billing actually kicks in. I’m going to click here on create a demo. Here, you can see, it says free for 14 days, but what I’ve done in the past is I’ve emailed the support team to give me an extension. And they , worked really well with you and they will allow you to have that extent.
Now that I have that, I can give my site name here. I’m gonna the web design master class, and then next over here on my data center, I’m going to choose one in Europe. I’m going to go with United Kingdom actually. Okay, fantastic. Now we have an option of setting up our user name. Now it’s very important that you set up a username that you will remember.
I’m just going to call this Mak and then I’m going to add my admin password. I’m going to confirm it here. Excellent. This information here is very important because we’re going to need this when we start designing our website. Let’s go ahead and set it all up. Now I’m going to click on create a demo site.
This is the process. Once it’s done, we are going to get a notification to say that this is now. So keep an eye on your emails around. I’ve got my email here to say that my web design masterclass website is now up. All I have to do now is to click here on view site. Here’s, what’s important.
What you need to do is to use this temporary domain. I’m going to click, okay. And open this in a new tab. Now it’s asking me for username and password. Now this username and password is not your WordPress, admin username and password. The password you need here is located right here on the bottom, where it says privacy mode.
Now the only time you can switch it off is if you’ve set up your billing, but in our case, we haven’t. I’m going to use the username here is called flywheel. I’m going to paste it and I’m also going to paste my password. And I’m just going to copy it and pasted. Once I’ve done this, I can click on sign in.
Now this is now our WordPress website. This is what it looks like. Of course there isn’t much on it because we haven’t designed anything on it. The next step now is to access my WordPress admin dashboard. Okay. To access that you want to add a forward slash WP hyphen admin. Excellent. I’m gonna hit enter.
It’s asking me for that signing, which is right here. I’m not sure why it’s asking me twice. It’s weird. Anyway, so here I am. Now, this is the screen where we need to use our WordPress admin username and password. Now I did also mention it while we were going through the process of setting up our website.
Once you’ve set it up here and your password. Hit a longing. And this now is going to take you into the website. As you can see. Let me say, not now here. So as you can see, this is now our backend of our website. What I normally do when I arrive here is to just make sure all my plugins are all up to date.
I’m going to click here on this four. So that’s my notification to tell me that I have four items that need updating. So these are the themes I can just go in and just update. Okay excellent. Our themes are all updated. We’re now at a very good stage in our web design process. In the next step, I’m going to show you what to set up on WordPress to make it easier for you to get up and running really, really fast.
All right. See you in the next video.
