Why Choose WordPress? Because It’s Simply the Best

I know what you’re thinking…

“Jafar, I’m sold on Rovity, but why should I use WordPress?”

Valid question, my friend! Here’s the deal…

WordPress isn’t just another website builder. It’s a digital powerhouse and the undisputed leader of the CMS world.

Let’s break down why WordPress is simply the best choice:

  • Flexible – It can shape-shift into any kind of site you need. Blog? E-commerce store? You name it.
  • Open Source – The collective wisdom of developers worldwide makes WordPress incredibly powerful. And you can join in the fun!
  • Customizable – With endless themes and plugins, you can give your site a look that’s distinctly you.
  • User-Friendly – WordPress makes website creation easy even if you’re not a coding wizard.

So instead of asking, “why WordPress?” I say “Why NOT WordPress?” When you want to play ball in the big leagues of the web, you need the most valuable player on your team.

Let’s get pumped about all the awesome things we can build together!

The fun part is here – let’s install WordPress with just a few easy clicks!

Time to configure your site!

Configuring Your WordPress Site

Once you’ve selected WordPress in Softaculous, it’s time to configure your site’s settings before installing. Customizing these initial options properly will take your site from good to great!

Choosing the Secure HTTPS Protocol

The first key decision is to choose the HTTPS protocol rather than regular HTTP. HTTPS encrypts the connection between your site and visitors to keep information private. It also provides trust and credibility for SEO. For maximum security and performance, always opt for HTTPS.

Picking the Installation Directory

Next, choose where you want WordPress installed on your hosting space. The default root directory is best for a main website. You can also install WordPress in a subdirectory like by entering that folder path here. Pick the location that fits your site architecture.

Setting Your Site Name and Tagline

Now, it’s time to define your brand! Your site name or title is shown on each page. Keep it short and memorable. The tagline or description appears below the title as a slogan. Summarize your purpose creatively!

Securing Your Admin Credentials

Choose a strong username and password for the administrative account. Avoid common words or phrases. A mix of letters, numbers, and symbols works best. Never share admin access widely. This keeps your backend and site safe.

Adding Your Admin Contact Email

Finally, input the email address where you want to receive WordPress notifications and alerts. Use an email you check frequently. Keep your admin contact current, which is vital for site updates and security.

With your optimal configuration set, you’re ready to install WordPress and begin building a fantastic site!

Customize Your New WordPress Site

Woo-hoo, you’ve installed WordPress with one magical click!
