Creating a website (or blog) is still something that is considered too expensive, difficult, complicated and time-consuming.
It’s 2017 and a recent survey says that almost 60% of very small businesses still don’t have a website.
No matter what type of small business you run, you absolutely need a website.
Another study says that 30% of small businesses that have a website generate more than 25% of their revenue from it.
Perhaps you’re a budding blogger, entrepreneur or internet marketer and need a bit of help with getting a WordPress blog created.
You know you need a blog, but you don’t know how to go about setting one up, or you just don’t have the confidence to do it yourself.
Because according to a study 81% of US consumers online trust information and advice from blogs, and 61% of US consumers online have made a purchase based on recommendations from a blog.
Here’s the good news
We provide this free WordPress installation service to help fellow small business owners, and individuals, get a WordPress powered website or blog started.
Installing and configuring WordPress yourself isn’t overly complicated, but you need have knowledge about things like ftp, databases, name servers, cpanel, permalinks etc.
Does this sound complicated to you? Then let us do it for you, for free!
What is & why WordPress?
WordPress is the world’s most popular and free website building tool that powers close to 75 million websites on the Internet (that’s 26% of all, yes – all, websites on the Internet).
Why WordPress? Because WordPress is:
- Open-source i.e. it’s free, meaning no ongoing costs, software licenses etc.
- Easy to learn, use and well supported
- Extendable, thanks to thousands of free themes and plugins.
- SEO friendly, fast loading and ready for the mobile web
- One of the most secure platforms you can choose to put your site on
You’ll be in good company because some of the world’s most famous brands also use WordPress to power their website or blog.
What’s the catch?
There’s got to be a catch! Because this sounds too good to be true, how can you do this for free when other freelancers out there charge at least a couple of hundred dollars to install and setup WordPress?
It’s very simple. We will install and setup WordPress at no cost to you, as long as you sign up for web hosting (+ you get a free domain name) from one of our partner web hosts.
You sign up for web hosting (for just a few dollars per month, besides you’ll need hosting anyway for your WordPress site) and we earn a commission from the sign up.
It’s a win-win deal. You’ll get a professional WordPress site installed and set up, and we’ll earn a small commission for doing the work for you.
NB: To be eligible for this free WordPress setup service you must sign up for web hosting using the referral link we give you on our instructions page.
We offer two types of WordPress installation packages. A no cost – “vanilla” flavoured – installation that is free of charge (yes that’s $0), as well as a more custom – “vanilla and chocolate” flavoured – WordPress installation that comes with a few more features for a one-off cost of $25.
|FREE ($0)||CUSTOMIZED ($25)|

Frequently asked questions
What if I already have web hosting?
To be eligible for this free WordPress installation and setup service you must sign up for web hosting from our web hosting partner. We are sorry but we can’t setup and install WordPress for you for free if you already have web hosting elsewhere.
What if I already have a domain name?
If you already have a domain name and don’t want to take up the offer of a free domain name from our web hosting partner, then you need to change the nameserver settings for your domain name where it’s registered (e.g. GoDaddy or Namecheap). Sounds complicated? Don’t worry, because we’ll give you step-by-step instructions that will tell you exactly what you need to do.
Is this safe and secure?
Yes, totally! You will need to give us access to the web host control panel (also called cPanel) so that we can login and install, and setup WordPress. We will not keep any of the login information about accessing your web host that you give us. Once WordPress has been set up we’ll delete this information. Also. We will give you step-by-step instructions on how can change all your logins and passwords, meaning we will no longer have any access to your site.
How long does it take before my site is ready?
Your WordPress powered site will be ready within three business days (i.e. Mon-Fri). As soon as you have signed up for web hosting with your partner, you’ll need to give us access to the web host. We’ll start installing WordPress and setting up your site as soon as we have the necessary info. Everything will be explained in more details in the instructions we’ll give you.
Will my site be optimized for search engines?
Yes, your site will be optimized for the search engines like Google. Because we configure search engine friendly URLs, we install and configure an SEO plugin that will create search engine optimized metadata tags and it will generate an XML Sitemaps.
What’s not included?
Anything that is not listed on the list above. This free WP installation and setup service excludes any form of custom design, coding and content creation. We can’t help you with any theme or plugin customization work, we can’t change colors or fonts and we can’t write or create any content or images. We are also unable to provide you with any on-going support.
Why should I use your service?

This site right here, digital.com, is powered by WordPress and serves as great example of what can be accomplished using this awesome free site building tool. Don’t miss this opportunity to get WordPress installed and setup on your domain name, for free.
What if I need more help?
WordPress is super easy and fun to learn and use. Once the WordPress software has been installed and configured (i.e. the hard work is out of the way thanks to this free WordPress installation service) creating web pages and blog posts are a breeze. If you know how to use MS Word then you’ll be able to publish content using WordPress. It’s that simple.
