New WordPress onboarding for Web Hosting and Business Hosting

Hi everyone,

 

On March 27th we launched a new WordPress onboarding experience for our Web Hosting and Business Hosting plans. This updated onboarding experience gives you a jump start on building a new WordPress site or online store.

 

The new experience begins with our WordPress template gallery. You'll have 70+ GoDaddy-exclusive templates to choose from. They cover a wide range of industries like Real Estate, Restaurants, Home Services, Fashion and more:

After selecting and previewing a template, you'll be prompted with a few questions. We'll use your answers to prepare the site for your specific needs:

 From here, you can make more adjustments using the WordPress Customizer:

What if you don't want to use the new onboarding experience?

 

Not a problem. You can skip it by choosing "Use default WordPress" or "Exit to WordPress Dashboard".

 

Does the new onboarding experience apply to manual installations?

 

The onboarding experience only applies to sites created through first-time hosting plan setups and Installatron. If you prefer to install WordPress the hard way (uploading the software, creating MySQL databases, etc.) you'll be taken through the default WordPress setup.

 

We hope this makes it even easier for you to get new WordPress sites up and running.
