In the previous article I have taught you how to register for hosting at DreamHost and receive a free domain name. Next in this post I will be with you install WordPress on hosting of DreamHost.
DreamHost does not use cPanel, so they use their own control panel and panel so anyone who is new to hosting for the first time at DreamHost will probably be a little confused.
