Recently, I have shared a promotional article on 70% OFF SiteGround coupon code 2020. In that article’s comment area, Mr. Alok has asked me, “Hello Harpreet sir, I just enjoyed a big discount on hosting purchase by following your steps. Thanks a lot! Can you help me to install WordPress on Siteground hosting too? Thanks in advance“.
Here is the exact screenshot of that comment showing below.
Though, Siteground hosting interface is totally different in which you can’t see cPanel or Softaculous app installer.
Even I had used other WordPress recommended web hostings e.g., Bluehost, A2 Hosting, Hostgator etc. that support cPanel Softaculous app installer.
But SiteGround Site Tools has amazing features that come in neat and clean UI (user interface). I bet, once you start using it, you will fall in love with this systematic website management tool.
Now, let’s come to the main topic of this tutorial, “how to install WordPress on your SiteGround hosting account?”.
Bonus: This guide is not about WordPress installation on SiteGround hosting only, but also I will show you how to delete WordPress installation on domain SiteGround too. So, if something happens wrong during the installation, you can easily remove it too.
Let’s dive in.
