How do I create a WordPress website using WordPress Toolkit?

Many of our great web hosting packages include WordPress Toolkit, a comprehensive set of tools for creating and managing websites which use WordPress, one of the world's most popular website development and content management systems.


Part one - logging into your web hosting control panel (cPanel) using your Enbecom Account

Step 1

Log in to your Enbecom Account at https://www.enbecom.net/login

 

Step 2

Enter the email address and password that you used to sign up for your new account.

 

Step 3

It will then ask you for your 2-Factor Authentication Code from your Authenticator App:

 

Step 4

On the Client Home page, click on the “Services” box:

 

Step 5

Then click on the name of the web hosting plan above the website's domain name.  In this example, the name of the hosting plan is WP6G T1 hosting for WordPress but it may vary.  Clicking on the domain name will take you to the website itself, not the control panel.

 

Step 6

On the next page, scroll down to the “Actions” box in the left-hand sidebar and click 'Login to cPanel':

 

Step 7

This will take you to the final page.  In this example image, cPanel is showing its welcome message, displayed when it is opened for the first time or when no website has been detected.  Icons linking to the extensive range of cPanel features are shown after this message.


Part two - creating a WordPress website

Step 8

In cPanel, click on the WordPress Toolkit link/icon:

 

Step 9

Click on “Install WordPress”:

 

Step 10

Click on “Install” on the next page:

 

Step 11

You then have the opportunity to select and install a theme (design template) and a range of plugins (software components that add functions and tools to the website).  We recommend that you take this step straight away - especially to ensure you have put in place a design and some components to help keep your site secure - but to help keep this tutorial straightforward, we've selected “No thanks”:

 

Step 12

Then click on “Login”:

 

Step 13

This takes you to the admin area of your site, landing on the Dashboard page:

 

Step 14

Click on “New” on the top left and select “page” from the dropdown list.  In WordPress, a "page" is an informational page, such as a homepage, about page or contact page - and a "post" is a blog post.  WordPress is great for both.

 

Step 15

The Block Editor box appears:

 

Step 16

Read the on-screen tutorial then click “Next” to scroll through for more information:

 

Step 17

Click “Next” again for more information:

 

Step 18

There’s a detailed guide on how to use it on the last click through:

 

Step 19

Click on “Get Started” (as shown on the previous page) and you will be presented with what looks like a blank Word document… just start typing your content and you can edit it later:

 

Step 20

Add your title and then click on the plus sign on the right-hand side and select a paragraph, or heading or whatever format you would like to add:

 

Step 21

In this example we selected paragraph to insert text under the heading. You can type or copy and paste text to create the paragraph:

 

Step 22

Hit Enter to get down to the next section and if you want to add a new heading, click on the plus sign again as before:

 

Step 23

Repeat this process until you have all your headings with paragraphs underneath.  You can have multiple paragraphs and multiple headings.  There are different levels of heading - 1 is the biggest and 6 is the smallest - and you should ensure you at least break up your paragraphs with Heading 2, which you can see as a H2 icon in these screenshots.  Why?  It helps with optimising your site for search engines.  With most themes (design templates) the title of the page will be set as H1.

 

Step 24

When you have finished writing the text, you can go back and highlight a line and a box appears with various options to move it up and down, change the block style, change to BOLD or ITALICS etc:

 

Step 25

Click on PREVIEW in the top right to see what it looks like so far:

 

Step 26

Click on Publish in the top right when you’re ready and your content will go live:

 

Step 27

You can now type your website address into a browser and view your site live:

 

Step 28

To continue with more content, you can add a new page by selecting the plus sign on the top left-hand side:

 

Step 29

Which takes you back to the blank page again:
