In this post, I will guide you on how to install WordPress on your iPage web hosting account using WordPress Installer. There is no use of uploading WordPress files and creating database manually because the auto installer does it all with a couple of clicks. So lets begin.

Login to your iPage panel. Select website on the top right of the menu bar and then choose WordPress from the options.
On the next welcome screen; click Install.
Step 3: Installation Preference
From here you can choose your installation preference. Select the most recent version to install. Next select the domain where you want to install the WordPress files. Choose your domain name without www. Otherwise visitors will need to type www with your domain name every time.
Step 4: Advanced option
Give your website a new name, followed by an admin username and password. Do not use admin as username as this is the most common word and could result in your website being hacked. If you leave the username and password option blank, WordPress will randomly assign you the login credentials and will email you the details.
Step 5: Plugins & Themes
Uncheck all the themes and plugins as you can do this later from the WordPress Dashboard.
Step 6: Legal Information
Next click the checkbox to agree with the Terms and conditions.
Click complete to finally install the WordPress. Wait for 1-2 minutes to complete the installation process. Upon completion, both the site and login URL will be displayed. Click on them to browse your new site or login to the dashboard.
