Get started with Flothemes

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO GET STARTED IN ONE PLACE

Starting a new site is never that easy, but we’re here to help you get started. The following page contains all resources and details of what you’ll need to get started with your new website.

 

STEP 1

A DOMAIN NAME

You’ll need an address for your new site, for example johndoe.com. If you already have a domain name great!

If not you can check out providers such as GoDaddy.com or eNom.com for domain name availability.

Also note, that with most hosting providers you can get a domain name for free, so if you don’t have hosting yet, check the next step, and get both in one!

STEP 2

CHOOSE HOSTING

Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers. You’ll need a reliable hosting provider that allows you to install WordPress.org, that will be your content management system of CMS.

Don’t worry if you don’t currently have hosting, you can view our recommended hosting providers and select one to get started. *We highly recommend using SiteGround as our preferred provider.

Step 3

WORDPRESS

Now you have hosting and a domain name for your site, you’ll need a Content Management System (CMS). CMS quite literally allows you to control and manage the content within your web site – without technical training. We use WordPress.org.

Adding its simple, most hosting providers offer a one-click install of WordPress. If not, you can download WordPress.org.

STEP 4

PICK YOUR THEME
