Support » Installing WordPress » Hosting site

  • I already have a web hosting service but it is a Korean web hosting service. Can you help me how I can connect my domain to wordpress? And also I bought a wordpress theme and I downloaded the file but I wasn’t sure how to open WordPress with that theme. Here is the link for the theme that i downloaded : . http://themeforest.net/item/fluxus-portfolio-theme-for-photographers/3854385 I have used wordpress with the domain already created but I have never started wordpress from the start such as downloading and applying the theme that I have purchased. So can you please help me how I can connect my domain to WordPress and also how I can use the purchased theme directly to the wordpress. Thank you.

    Can you help me how I can connect my domain to wordpress?

    Sorry? why do you need to connect anything with wordpress.org? Is this a wordpress.com site or a self-hosted WordPress install?

    Can you help me how I can connect my domain to wordpress?

    Like esmi said, it is not possible to understand what you want to ask us. What is the URL of your website? We want to make sure it is self hosted WordPress. Is JetPack Plugin is installed and prompting to connect to WordPress? Then you’ll need a wordpress.com account.

    I have used wordpress with the domain already created but I have never started wordpress from the start such as downloading and applying the theme that I have purchased.

    Normally we install themes by going to :

    Admin Panel > Themes > Add New > Upload Themes

    Those third party good looking themes sold on various marketplace can be difficult to install.
    They usually have a readme document in html format. You might need to move a zip folder inside the downloaded package (unlike standard WordPress themes). Sometimes they have some plugins, PSD files, XML files etc. Actually we can not help you as they have copy protected / restrictive license. Ask the seller, he/she has taken $45 dollar, that includes the support.

    Thank you Esmi and Abhishek. Let me rephrase my wordings. I already have a website but I want to recreate the whole website through wordpress. http://www.ilsong.co.kr is my current website. And the hosting service is http://www.hostwide.net . It is a Korean hosting service. It says that I need to create database either by manually or on my webserver. How do I know if I have to create manually or not? And do I need to have both hosting service and database in order for me to log into the “administration area”?

    You need to contact your hosts for assistance with this.

    And do I need to have both hosting service and database in order for me to log into the “administration area”?

    For WordPress? Yes.
