When you find the option of wordpress, simply click on it and it will take you to the softaculous (a popular auto-installer script) software to install the wordpress. Then Simply Click on “Install Now” and fill the necessary information (softaculous is the software provided by the bluehost company, I am not sure about other webhosting provider whether they provide the softaculous for installing WordPress or not, but it’s almost alike with every other web hosting provider, also i am introducing screenshots from my control panel to make it easily understandable) required to launch the website like : website name, tag line etc etc.

Step 2 : Fill Out the information for WordPress Installation

Fill out each and every information required :

Softaculous will now ask you where you want to install WordPress. You need to choose http:// or http://www. as a protocol.

If your site has SSL and HTTPS, then you can select https:// or https://www. as protocol.

After that, you need to choose the domain name for which you want to install WordPress. Most users want to install WordPress in their domain’s root directory, like example.com. In that case, you need to make sure that the ‘In Directory’ field is blank.
Scroll down a little, and you will see the site settings section.

Under this section, first you need to provide a Title and Description for your WordPress site (That’s going to be your Meta Title and Meta Description). Don’t worry you can easily change them from your WordPress admin area after installation.

Next, you need to choose an admin username, password, and email address. Softaculous will automatically fill in the information of username and password fields for you. It will use a non-dictionary word for username and a strong password.

You can change them if you want so that they are easy to remember for you. However, we strongly recommend you to always use a strong password.

Make sure that you enter correct email address in the admin email field. This is where WordPress will send notifications and password reset link if you ever forgot your password in the future.
Rest of the options on the screen are optional. You can now click on the install button to run the installer.

In you cPanel go to File Manager>public_html.

This will take you to all the files uploaded while installing the wordpress. You can use free FTP client like FileZilla, to take a look to these files. But to keep this tutorial simple, I will be using Web hosting cPanel.

When the complete wordpress installation is done then simply login into your website’s wordpress account by going on the following link. The link for going on the WordPress account looks like : www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin

(Replace the word yourdomain in the URL with your actual domain name.)
