Are you struggling to figure out where to
host your WordPress website? Well, stay tuned because in today’s video I am going to share
with you my favorite managed WordPress hosting company. Are you ready? Let’s go!
I want to welcome you to the WordPress Made Easy show. I’m your host, Jennifer Franklin,
and I help entrepreneurs create and grow your WordPress websites quickly without stressing
out over design or tech. I was on a call yesterday with a brand new business owner and one of
his biggest concerns that was holding him back was: where do I host my WordPress website?
So in today’s video, I am going to make this super easy for you. I am going to be sharing
with you my favorite WordPress website host. Here we are on my favorite WordPress website
hosting company Flywheel. Flywheel is a division of WP Engine. Over the past 15 years I have
used a lot of different WordPress hosting companies and none of them quite compare to
what I have found at Flywheel. I will leave a link in the description below so you can
check it out. I want to show you can get your website hosting set up on Flywheel and get
that 14 day free trial so you can start finding out all the great benefits of Flywheel for
yourself. Are you ready? Let’s get started. On the Flywheel website home page, scroll
down to the center and click on the SIGN UP FOR FREE button. It will open up a option
to create your new account. You will just want to go ahead and fill in your Name, Last
Name, Email, phone number and create a username and password. The username and password will
be how you will log into your Flywheel account in the future. Once you’ve clicked SIGN UP
your Flywheel account will be created. To create your first site you can click on CREATE
NEW SITE. If you read through the welcome page at the very bottom again there is a link
to create a site. You can click on that. If you want to give Flywheel a try free for 14
days you can scroll down and click on CREATE DEMO SITE. This will allow you to create a
demo site that you can test for 14 days and at that time if you love it as much as I do
you can go ahead and complete your billing. Before we can create our first demo site we
need to verify our email address. To do that head over to your email and you should have
an email from Flywheel. You will click on that and it will take you to Flywheel where
you need to login. They are going to ask you to verify your account with either a text
message or a credit card. So I just went ahead and clicked on text message. And enter the
phone number that you want them to send the text to and they will send you a code. Once
you have that code you can copy it and verify your account. Once you’ve accomplished those
quick steps we can come back to this page and we will get started setting up your demo
site. The next steps are to complete the form on this page by entering in a site name. I’m
just going to use Jen’s Demo. And then come up with a temporary domain. I’ll just use
jensdemo here again. My temporary domain would be That’s where
I will go to see my site once it’s live. You can select your data center. I’m here in the
United States. There’s Australia, Canada, European Union and United Kingdom. Next you
will create your WordPress username and password. This is what you will use to login to your
WordPress website once we go ahead and click CREATE DEMO. You’ll get an email once it’s
ready. It shouldn’t take too long. Another reason why I love Flywheel is their super
slick, easy to navigate dashboard. Here we are on the Dashboard which is super clean.
You can find it by clicking on the Dashboard button at the top of your account. It looks
like our demo site has been installed so let’s go ahead and click on my demo and here it
is! Up in the top left hand corner you will see that I have 14 days left to enjoy my free
trial. I can go ahead and explore and play around with this platform. That’s it! In today’s
video I shared with you how to set up your WordPress website hosting and install WordPress
on your new WordPress website host on Flywheel. Stay tuned for the next video where I’ll share
with you how to install one of my favorite WordPress website themes…and I’m not going
to give that away yet. You’ll have to tune in to see. Talk to you later. Bye!
