I found someone else's blog who was using wordpress and really liked the looked. I've been using blogger but have little control over there and thought I would come here. I asked a while back if I would have more control here and got given the answer that yes I would.
The only problem is that I am totally clueless right about now.
I have tried to follow your easy steps (your three easy steps, find a host, install wordpress...) but I'm getting nowhere.
I bought myself a domain name. I went over to HOSTICAN and registered and bought my 2 year subsciption. I have tried to install wordpress 3 times.
Now I don't know what happens next. They (domain name people) told me three days and it would be working but if I put it in nothing is there and it's a search error. It's nearly been four days.
So do I need to wait until my domain name is up and running before I can install wordpress because so far I've had NO LUCK getting anything to run.
How will I know my domain name is up and running? What will be there? Who do I ask for help here? You guys, since I don't have wordpress even installed yet? HostIcan...is this their problem? The domain company I got the domain name off?? I am SO LOST!
Someone please help me. I've been using computer's for 7 years now. I consider myself a medium sort of computer savvy person, but my husband is a whizz and even he has no idea what we need to do here. It's been driving us crazy for a couple days now and I'm affraid I've wasted $100 on something that is not going to work. All because I wanted more fonts to chose from!!
WordPress boasts about being easy!
