This “Build a Simple Website” example is relative to a Small Beef Cattle Farmer but most any website could be built in a similar way.
When you obtain your hosting service through Hostgator they will send you an email with your Login information to what I call a cPanel (Control Panel). Here you will find all the tools needed to control and build your website.
Scroll down to where you see Software & Services. Select QuickInstall and install the Free WordPress Platform through it. Be sure to enter a good email address because your WordPress Login information will be emailed to you.
Login to your WordPress site and customize it according to your requirements or needs.
We recommend a minimum of a Home Page, About Us Page, Sale Pen Page and Contact Us Page. You can add a Blog (Posts) or additional pages that may help in attracting visitors to your site.
If you get stuck of need additional help you can find cPanel help tutorials on your Hostgator cPanel and lots of WordPress help Videos on YouTube.
