I highly recommend you to choose one as it is the most popular and most recognizable for this tutorial that I am going to use online but like I said I highly recommend you to choose. Enter the .com domain name Click Search and Click Continue Let’s create a new website and let’s choose WordPress and that’s where you need to enter your email address and set a password.

For which you will use those credentials. Log in to your WordPress Dashboard so that’s exactly what I’m about to do can. Let’s click on show more and choose a template we want to use for our WordPress website. Let’s scroll down and click show more I think I’m going to use this template so let’s click select.

And if you want you can even preview this template to see what it’s going to look like. But in this case I’m just going to choose this template. let’s click on select and click on finish setup, it may take few minutes until setup is complete right perfect our website is ready but before we go and go to our website install ssl certificate so let’s Click on Manage Site As you can see we have received a message that our domain name is not yet registered so before we can install the SSL certificate. To end the main registration, then let’s click on End domain registration.

And here you have to enter your details like first name last name address city and so on just enter all required information and once you complete it. So just click on setup from here we can go back to our control panel. Because you can see that our domain name status is active so let’s move on to hosting.

Select it and this is where you will be able to install your ssl certificate. So let’s click on Setup and click on Activate. And all we have to do is just click on install and see as you can the ssl certificate was installed successfully and if your ssl certificate fails to install then it usually happens.

Because your domain name registration hasn’t expired, it usually takes about two hours. so wait a little time say about an hour or two and try to install ssl certificate once again and you should not face any problem now ok so we have successfully installed our ssl certificate and from here we will proceed You can come and visit us.

Creating a Navigation Menu
