Linux Hosting Guided Tour Part 4: Recap and what to do next
Our guided tour is complete! Along the way, you learned about:
- Your Linux Account Dashboard. It's where you perform account-related tasks like adding more domains, viewing your server information, or changing your account passwords.
- Your WordPress Dashboard. It's where you build your website—adding pages, posts and media, changing themes, and more.
- Your cPanel Admin home page. It's where you can fine-tune advanced website settings like PHP settings and options or managing site security.
Here's a list of important tasks to do for a great start:
- Install an SSL certificate: Planning an online store? Then you've got to have a secure website. Here's our path for requesting and installing an SSL certificate.
- Set up website backups: Backing up your site is a great way to protect your content and data if there's a real problem. You can set up backups yourself in cPanel, or let us handle that for you with our Website Backup service.
- Start building your site with WordPress: Check out our list of the basics you need to start building your new WordPress website.
- Move a WordPress website from another host to GoDaddy: If your WordPress website is already built but hosted elsewhere, you can move the whole thing to your account with cPanel.
- Find Help articles when you need them: Here's the home page for Linux Hosting help articles.
