How to install WordPress on Hostinger?

You’ll want to access your Hostinger control panel called the hPanel first. You can do so by clicking here and logging in –
Next to the hosting plan you’ve purchased click “Manage” and then find the “Auto Installers” option.
Once you click “Auto Installers” WordPress will be one of the options. All you need to do is type in your website title and choose a user name & password that you’ll use to log into WordPress.
After the installation is finished you’ll see a new menu appear. By clicking on the WordPress icon you’ll be taken to your WordPress control panel.
How to get free SSL on Hostinger?

Most of the time a free SSL is part of your hosting package when buying a plan. However, if it isn’t don’t worry. In this Hostinger WordPress tutorial, I’ll show you how to get an SSL for free.

If your plan came with a free SSL you can activate it very easily by going to your Hostinger control panel and logging in
Navigate to the SSL section & click on Install. That’s it!

If your plan didn’t come with free SSL you’ll need to do some extra work. You’ll need to install and activate your SSL certificate using Cloudflare CDN and WordPress plugins.

Register for a free account.
Cloudflare will give you new nameservers to use. You’ll need to point your domain name to the new nameservers
Inside Cloudflare control panel go into the SSL/TLS section and choose the “Flexible” option. Then in “Edge Certificates” activate the “Always use HTTPS” option.
Navigate to your WordPress dashboard and install 2 plugins (Cloudflare Flexible SSL and Really Simple SSL)
Activate both plugins and you’ll have a free SSL for a lifetime.
How to optimize your Hostinger WordPress website?

I like Hostinger because even though they offer low prices, they try to optimize for speed as much as possible. Your automatic WordPress installation comes together with LiteSpeed cache plugin. Normally, you would need to use a Quic CDN for this plug-in to work. But, Hostinger has Lite optimized servers. So, you can use LiteSpeed Cache right off the bat.

Once you’re done creating your website. I recommend you access your WordPress dashboard and activate LiteSpeed Caching as well as image optimization. This will make your website faster & lighter. A great feature to have.
How to create a business email for free?

All Hostinger plans come with a free email box that you can use to create a professional-looking business email accounts. And it’s quite simple to do so.

Log into your Hostinger control panel
Find a section called “Email Accounts”
And simply type in the password and the name you want to use for your email address.
You can now manage your email straight through Hostinger or something like Thunderbird.

  3. Hi, thank you for a simple yet concise tutorial! I have a question – if I were to start a personal wordpress blog, do I choose Shared Web Hosting (as you have demonstrated in this video) or straightaway go for their WordPress Hosting? I'm always confused with the options. Thanks in advance!

  4. Hi! How can I use the Cloudflare SSL certificate if my site is not built with WordPress? It's a static webpage. And another question.

I used your discount code when I bought the hosting 🙂

  10. Hi Sorry for my stupid question but, I'm having problem on pulishing my website when I try to type my domain name it say's This domain name is parked FREE, courtesy of Hostinger. I already pay it at Hostinger. Will you please help me with my problem

  11. I had done everything by your instructions till 4:14 and my site got down after that. Any way to fix this? Or to make it functional? I am only using hostinger as hosting for my website, not as domain provider, and I changed nameservers on my domain provider as you instructed and everything was ok until I installed really simple ssl, then my site got down and I am having trouble bringing it back.

  12. After installing Simple SSL, Website is no longer reachable. I get "This site can't provide a secure connection – ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL ERROR"
    Any suggestions around this? I see that Hostinger no longer allows you to turn on the SSL CERTIFICATE or the CLOUDFLARE setting on in the dashboard unless you pay. Does this have something to do with it?
    Additionally, Cloudflare API has been removed from the ADVANCED SETTINGS in the LiteSpeed Cache. The CDN tab has been removed too.
