How To Install WordPress on Hostgator (Web Hosting)

Worst Customer Service and Support of Any Company… EVER! – Everything at #hostgator is so broken. I had issues from the moment I signed up. I tried submitting tickets, but the ticketing system didn’t work. I tried live chat, it took an hour to reach someone. I tried calling them, and never did get through as I eventually gave up. Once I finally reached someone, they opened a ticket for me. A week goes by… no response. I follow-up… Still no response. So I ask to cancel my account as I still haven’t been able to use my hosting account. They send me a form to fill out… Guess what, it’s broken too. They basically said that it was my problem because they couldn’t replicate it. It’s not my job to troubleshoot, QA, and identify bugs with their website and system. Still have yet to receive my refund – and I stupidly prepaid for 36 months of hosting. Roy Hardman

    Great video, I'm watching this a year later in May of 2015, so its changed a little. At the end, once wordpress is installed through quick link, they send you the information to your email that you provided for login. It doesn't take you directly there anymore. Took me a minute to understand it.
