General Information
I am a total novice and I am totally confuse. I’m trying to avoid mistakes by knowing exactly what I’m doing before I do it this time around. I purchase a email account when I purchased a domain name at another site. Why, because they offered it and I didn’t really know what I was doing. It seems that email accounts are free. But anyhow. Do I use the email I purchased with them or do I set up a new email address with your hosting site. If I keep the email that I purchased, how do I go about using it here.

Also when I install wordpress, which protocol do I select and why. I’m not sure. With The Database name, do I just give it the name that I personlly want the database to be name. And should I leave the database prefix as is.

Should the email in Email installation details to box be my personal email.

Does wordpress automatically install the php mysql data stuff. Or is this something I need to do separately. Thank you.

Hello everydaypeople,

If you point your domain name to our name servers, the email will automatically point over to our servers as well. You can, however, set the email to use another server by pointing your domain's MX records to your current email server. This will enable you to use your subscription email if you wish.

With Wordpress, unless you specifically purchased an SSL, you will want to use the http:// protocol.

The database name is randomly generated and is usually used, though you can rename it if you like.

For the email installation details, simply enter an email address you have access to and it will receive the details there. These will include the admin username and password, and a link to the admin area.

Wordpress will automatically install the database and the connection code so the php and Mysql can converse. Php and mySQL already exist on the server so it does not install a newer version. You will not need to install anything regarding php or mysql.

Best Regards,
Scott M
