When it comes to Installing WordPress with a new host, it can pose some problems.
To help guide you through the installation process, we have created a step by step tutorial that shows how we setup InMotion on one of our Live Test Sites (wpdingo.club) in March 2016. We hope you find it beneficial!
How to Install WordPress for InMotion Hosting
Step 1: Choose your hosting plan with InMotion and complete the order. During the order process, in the CMS Auto-Installer section, make sure to select “Install WordPress”.
Step 4: Set your password and click Submit. It is recommended to use a password generator to improve your site’s security.
Step 5: Then click Login.
Step 10: (Optional) You will find 2 DNS records (shown below) that need to be added to your Domain Providers Admin Portal.
Look for Nameservers, and replace the existing records (which are usually ns1.yourdomainprovider.com & ns2.yourdomainprovider.com etc.) with the 2 InMotion records.
Please be aware that changes to DNS records can take up to 24-48 hours, so unfortunately, you might see the coming soon page for a little while.
