Getting Started with Flothemes

The following article explains what is required when getting started with Flothemes. You need the following elements, hosting, a domain and WordPress.org.

Domain

You’ll need a domain name for your new site, that is the name of your web address, for example johndoe.com. If you already have a domain name great! If not you can check out providers such as GoDaddy or eNom.com for domain name availability.

Also note, that with most hosting providers you can get a domain name for free, so if you don’t have hosting yet, check the next step, and get both in one!

Hosting

You’ll need a reliable hosting provider that allows a WordPress.org installation. Don’t worry if you don’t currently have hosting, you can view our recommended hosting providers and select one to get started.

WordPress.org

Now you have hosting and a domain name for your site, you’ll need a WordPress.org installation. If you already have this, then great, you may want to check out how to use our Flo Launch plugin to work on your new site.

If not, you can download WordPress.org.
