Setting up your WordPress blog or site on iPage is really simple – you can do it all in under five minutes.
I will be providing you with a step-by-step guide to walk you through the set up process.
You can click here to open iPage.com in a new tab so you can follow along.
First, you will need to sign-up and create an account on iPage if you don’t already have an account. Currently it’s on sale for $1.99/month (80% off the regular price).
Once you are on the homepage, click on the sign-up button. Provide answers needed such as (if you are creating an account or is you will be using an existing webpage, such as your WordPress). You will then be asked about your particulars and billing details to finish creating your account.
If you already have an existing account, simply log on to iPage by clicking the log in button found on the upper right side of the iPage homepage. Provide your username and password.
Once you are logged in, you will find several command tabs on the upper portion of the webpage. Hover your mouse on the “WEBSITE” tab. A drop down menu will appear. Choose “Wordpress” and click. And that’s it! You will be redirected to WordPress installation page. It’s a no-fuss word-press installation.
Once you’ve clicked on the WordPress menu under “Website” tab, you will see an overview of the website. Read through it just to be 100% sure. But if you do not have the luxury of the time, scroll down on the bottom page until you see the “Install” button and “Import” button. Click the “Install” button to install a brand new version of WordPress or click the “Import” button to import an existing installation.
Details, details, details
Installation will start after you have filled up information regarding your website as requested by iPage. Supply the following information on the fields as needed. You will not need to enter anything on the “installation directory”.

After all fields are filled up and all pertinent information are provided, simply click on the “Complete” button and accept the terms and conditions of the GPLv2 license agreement. You will have your WordPress on your iPage in less than a minute. You are now installed and ready to roll!

You will also be provided with a step-by-step guide by the video host on how to install your WordPress on iPage, complete with videos and screen captures.
