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.

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

Setting up WordPress and connecting a domain on Arvixe is a straightforward process, largely facilitated by the robust combination of cPanel and Softaculous. This combination ensures a simplified procedure. Moreover, the ever-available live chat window enables prompt access to support in case you encounter any difficulties.
