  5. Steve Forcier

    Well I,m confused tittle says "How To Make a WordPress Website with GoDaddy ". Then goes to Hostgator??

  6. Chanda Hicks

    So, I'm guessing that you don't answer questions on these videos? Too many to keep up with? I left a comment below 6 days ago and have yet to get a reply.

    Hey Greg, I already have a domain name and used GoDaddy's website builder to build my site. I am having issues because I sell CBD Oil and have to attach a merchant that is considered high-risk. CBD is considered medical marijuana, which is still on the schedule 1 drug list federally (even though it is legal in my state). The GoCentral's website builder only offers square, stripe, and PayPal as a merchant, so to attach a third-party merchant of my choice, I have to build a site in word press. I called to have GoDaddy's design team help me with this and they want $3,000. OUCH! I think I can do this myself with your tutorials, but I am having a bit of an issue understanding Pan Ipsum for my blog page. Do you have a tutorial on how to use this app? Or any advice that might be helpful? By the way, my website is (which is my very first site and not doing very well).

    Hi Greg. Thanks for the video. Maybe I missed this part but I can’t figure out how to optimize my site for mobile devices. All the pages and posts seem to big on a phone. It looks great on a tablet or computer but needs resized for a phone. Thanks for any help.

    THANK YOU for posting a tutorial that was comprehensive and easy to follow! As an old school 'cut and paste' print designer I was not prepared when a local political campaign I'm working on suddenly found themselves without their web person. Adding 'creating a website' to my responsibilities were made much easier after finding your vid. A definite 'lifesaver'. Thanks again.

    Hi Geg, Would it possible to get the link for download images? Thanks

    Hi, Greg! Really like your video, it helps me a lot. But now i have a small question.
    i set up my website with hostgator in in April. It has been going well in these few months.
    But today when i tried to log in to the web that i created "" , it appears this link " " again and again even i tried few times, just could not log in.
    Could I ask how to deal with this situation and successfully log in, plz give me a hand.

    Love your tutorials! They have helped so much. Very easy to understand and follow! Although, do you have one for adding a shopping cart? I am using Godaddy Word Press and Catch Base Theme, per your recommendation. Thanks, Kim

  13. Chuck B

    Your video was incredibly informative. I only watched an hour, but now I understand the basics with navigating WordPress. I'll flip back to it, once I get stuck and I know I will. LOL You people that make these videos are awesome.

  14. Zeb Plante

    super great tutorial. I watched it until the end. You helped me create my new site. Thanks

  15. Brady Russell

    Hey Greg. I wanted to say THANK YOU for publishing this. Used it start to finish to create an amazing site the past couple of days. The speed of the video was perfect. Thanks again. I had two questions I am hoping you can assist me with. Using the same Clean Business Catch Theme, is there a way to add a phone number to the menu bar area? Also, my custom logo seems to be manipulating how far the black space in the menu bar appears when I visit other pages on my site. I followed all the logo instructions in the video with sizing the width, but I am wondering if (for my page to look properly without any section/menu bar hang down overlaps on the pages – height) that this is a bit more advanced? Maybe some negative space has to be assigned? Any advice or tutorials you can lead me to? Greatly appreciative. You rock.

    Hello Greg. Thank you so much for taking the time to make this tutorial, you're the man! This video has helped me enormously with my own website. Keep up the good work!

  17. Jonattan Salcedo

    Hi Greg, I am trying to modify the background that has like a blury image of some flowers, can you tell how to accomplish that please? Thanks in advance and congrats for such a great tutorial.

  18. Blandine Tchanque

    Really helpful. I was able to create my first blog with this video. Thanks a bunch!

  19. BiBiN DaS

    nice, thank you so much for creating the video i have seen this 1 year before thanking you so much for the updated version.

  20. CoGoGlass

    Thank you so much for this tutorial. It has taken me a while to finish and I still have to go back and add pages and products but the framework for the site is at least established. I feel relieved!
