In this guide, we’ll cover how to create an additional WordPress website on your hosting plan.

AccountCenter

Login to your AccountCenter Client Area, select your service, and click the WordPress Tools option under the Quick Shortcuts section:

WordPress Management

This will take you directly to your WordPress Manager where you can install and manage your WordPress applications.

Install WordPress

After that, click the Install button in the top left corner:

Next we’ll need to fill in some details.

The Protocol column should be set to https://www so your site directs to a secure version.

Then you need to type in the Domain (this will be the name of your website, for example, skystraconnect.com).

Choose the directory if you want to install new website into a subdirectory.

Next, fill in the Site Name and Site Description fields (you can say in a couple of words what your website is about and this will help your SEO ratings improve!).

The Admin Username is randomly generated by our system for best security, we recommend keeping it that way, however it can be changed to something else you prefer as well.

Type in a password in the  Admin Password column or automatically create one by clicking on the key icon.

Next, fill in your Administrator Email which would be the email address you signed up with at Skystra, so for example, [email protected] or [email protected], or whichever email you’d like in there.

Next, choose what language you want your WordPress installation to be. English is automatically selected, maybe you’d like your WordPress to be in Spanish, French, German, etc – your choice!

Under the Select Plugin(s) section, you can choose if you want to install some additional plugins we offer by default.

Expand the Advanced Options section to see some more options.

The Database Name can be changed from the auto-generated name, if you want to have a custom name, the same goes for the Database Prefix  + you have 3 new cool features that gives you:

  • Auto Upgrade of your website (if newer versions pop up, they will be automatically installed)
  • Auto Upgrade for your plugins
  • Auto Upgrade for your themes

This means that once a new version of WordPress, a certain installed plugin or theme, will be available, we’ll automatically install it for you! Don’t forget to enable these features, in order to save your time and focus on your business, or if you want to do this manually, you can still auto upgrade all of the above, once you’ve installed WordPress (we’ll let you know below how to do this, no worries!).

Lastly, we offer some themes you can install on your website for free during the installation, so choose one if you want.

To finish everything, click on the Install button and you will see your website installed:

To see how the newly installed WordPress theme looks like, go ahead and open your website.

Usually, a very basic and default theme is installed, and your website will look something like this:

Deleting Existing WordPress

If for any reason you want to delete an existing WordPress installation and start a new one – follow these quick steps:

Go to the WordPress Manager, expand the desired WordPress installation, and click the Remove button at the bottom:

On the next screen, make sure to select all three options (to delete the directory, database user, and database itself):

That will delete the installation and then you can follow the steps from the top to create a new one.

That’s it!
