How to create a new WordPress site

Creating a WordPress blog takes a few minutes. Within a few moments you will have your very own corner of the internet!

There are just two main steps to create your site:

1. Purchase a WordPress hosting package from this page. The ‘StartUp’ plan will be suitable for most people and is the best value at £35 ($50 USD) for the year.

2. Once you login to your Customer Area for the first time, you will be asked if you want to setup a new website (example below). Select WordPress and the page will expand asking you to fill in your information. Add your email, admin username and password and click on the green Confirm button.

That’s it! Your new site will now be online and you can log in to get started. You can now purchase any of our WordPress themes on this page.

If you need any help setting up WordPress and/or your theme, you’re welcome to contact us or take advantage of our free installation service 🙂

    If i purchase hosting through site ground and then purchase a wordpress theme through pipdig, do i still have to purchase a plan through wordpress? Will i have to pay three times (once for site ground, once for pipdig, and once for wordpress)? I am confused. Also, I would like a new domain name. Lets just pretend I am totally new to this because I am.

      Hi Shanna, you would not need to purchase anything from wordpress.com. If you follow the steps above you’ll have everything you need 🙂

    A quick question.. If you don’t have your blog hosted through siteground, Is it still possible to take part of the free installation service, if you purchase one of the themes? For example if you are using Bluehost?

    Hello,
    I have my domain set up with squarespace but nothing on the site made with them. Is it possible to use the same domain that I have with them set with siteground and your templates?
    Thanks,
    Tessa

      Hi Tessa, yes that’s certainly possible. If you purchase one of our themes I’ll be happy to set that up for you during our free installation service. You’re welcome to include login details for your Squarespace account and SiteGround when you complete our request form 🙂

    Is it possible to upload one of your themes onto a WordPress.com site? What if the site is upgraded on WordPress.com to Business? Will it work then?

    Thanks!
    Natalie

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Natalie, unfortunately not. However you may be interested in our upgrade service. This would include much the same features as the Business plan from wordpress.com.

      Hi Dana, the options should appear on the screen after you log in to your SiteGround account.

      If you’re planning to purchase a pipdig theme, I’ll be happy to setup WordPress for you as part of our free installation service. Feel free to send login details for your SiteGround account via this form and I can do that for you.

    Im wanting to set my blog up but I wanted to do my hosting through host gator. Do I have to go through certain hosting to get your themes to work?

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Krystina, you’re welcome to use any WordPress host you prefer (except wordpress.com). We just tend to recommend SiteGround as it is the best value host in our experience (we’re tried pretty much all of them over the years!).

          Hi there! Would you be able to send me a link to your site? I will check if our themes will be compatible 🙂

    Lovely designs. I am a little confused. I am ready to select my WordPress template and package but hesitating until I understand what I’m doing. I am happy to create a new design but am I able to transfer an existing domain name over that I already use? Thanks

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Glad you like them! It is indeed possible to use a domain name that you already own 🙂
