SiteGround makes this very simple, you’ll need to install the application for building your website, in our case – WordPress. When you log in for the first time in your Client Area, you’ll see a welcome message and a button “SET UP WEBSITE” which will take you directly to the installation process.
On the next step, select Start New Website and WordPress as your application of choice.
Finish the installation process by choosing whether to add extra services, such as SG Site Scanner, which scans your website every day and alerts you immediately if your website has been hacked or compromised with malicious code.
At the end, click on Finish to complete the setup process. WordPress is now installed on you domain!
