Arvixe offers a range of hosting services, from shared hosting to dedicated servers. If you’ve created an account and are ready to set up your WordPress website, read on to find out the exact process to do so. It’s quick and easy.

Step One: Log Into Your Dashboard

Once you’ve created an account, the first step is to log into your dashboard and enter the product you’ve purchased. It’s as simple as clicking on My Services on the main dashboard home page.

Inside the hosting service section, on the left-hand side, you can select Login to cPanel. Click on this to enter the control panel for your hosting account.

Congrats, you’ve started the WordPress installation. After around 60 seconds, you’ll see an on-screen success message confirming completion of the installation.

Step Four: Connect Your Domain

Now that you have a brand new WordPress installation, you need to connect your domain to it. If you’ve purchased a domain with Arvixe, this will have happened automatically. However, if you’d like to use a domain registered elsewhere, you have to map the Domain Name System (DNS) to Arvixe.

Head over to your inbox to find your welcome email. It’s full of useful information, including your login and nameserver details. You need to get the nameserver information to update your domain name at your existing registrar (e.g., GoDaddy). It’s easy to do and should only take a couple minutes. That’s it. You’re ready to create your site.

cPanel and Softaculous

It’s easy to set up WordPress and connect a domain on Arvixe, but that’s mostly due to the solid combination of cPanel and Softaculous, which makes the process simple. Plus, the ever-present live chat window means that if you do get stuck, you can quickly get support.

Are you tempted to learn more about Arvixe? Why not? It’s easy to get started. You can learn more about the company and its services in my in-depth review. See you over there.
