time to setup wordpress You can do a lot more
with it than blogger For example, there is something
called as plugins in wordpress Which helps to you add
new feature to your website So, let’s say you want to
add a live chat to your site, you can do it, just
by installing a plugin in wordpress And finally, WordPress also
helps you to build your own website, just like this,

video till the end to see how you can do it So, Now let’s take a
look at the blogger site This is the blog which
I’ve built on blogger Now to move this
site, to wordpress, we’re going to do 3 things 1st, We’re going to ‘save’
the contents of this blogger site, into a file Then, in STEP 2 we’re going to launch
a New wordpress site and then finally, we’ll
import the blogger content into wordpress Okay! So let’s get started! The First Step is to ‘Save’ our blog’s
content, into a file So to save the blog’s content, let’s go to our
Blogger dashboard Now make sure your blog
is selected, here And then go into
‘Settings’ And go into ‘Other’ Now click ‘Backup content’ And ‘save to your computer’ So now you can see that,
we’ve downloaded our blog content in this file Next, let’s go to step 2 Which is, to launch
a new wordpress site So to launch a new
wordpress site, Just click the link below this video, And it’ll take
you to this page So to launch a new
wordpress site, we’re going to do 3 things First, we’re going to choose
a Name for our website So you can choose any
name you want I’m going to type
my name here So, I’m going to type & then click check
availability you can see that the name
is available, So, Once you get the name We need to then buy that
name & get our hosting account So to get hosting & domain
let’s scroll down and click get hosting This will take you
to, where we are going
to buy the hosting So let’s click ‘Get started’ Now enter the same name
that you choose and click ‘Search’ Then click ‘Select
and Continue’ And now it will take
you to this cart page So you can see that
we’re getting our domain, And our hosting Both of these are going
to be valid for 1 year So to complete
the purchase Let’s click ‘register’ And I will quickly
fill up these details and click ‘Create account’ Now click ‘Add payment’ and choose your payment method Enter the details And click ‘next’ Now click complete
to make the payment and it’s done! Okay! So now we’ve completed the
payment & we’ve got our domain & hosting Which means we can
now install wordpress! Okay So to install wordpress,
let’s click “add site” And click ‘Get started’ Now just select the domain
name you’ve purchased and click ‘Next’ then again ‘Next’ And now you need to enter
a username and password for WordPress This will be used when
you login to wordpress So, I’m going to type my name and the password and then click ‘Install’ Okay, So now we’re
installed wordpress So, let’s click ‘Get Started’ Now let’s skip this by
clicking ‘No Thanks’ and ‘OK’ Okay, so now we have
reached our WordPress Dashboard This is the place from where you
can control your website Now if you want to come
to this page again, you just have to
enter, ‘slash login’, after your domain name And it will take you
to your dashboard So once, you
reach this page, your new wordpress
site, should be live So to check that Let’s go to our domain name Which is and press ‘Enter’ And as you can see our
website is now running, So now we’ve launched
our new wordpress site Which means we can

the blogger content into wordpress So to import our
blogger content, let’s go to wordpress And then go to ‘tools’ and click ‘Import’ Now as we’re going to

website’s design has changed Okay! So we saw, how we can import
the content & change the design of our site now let’s go to

blog post on the new wordpress site This will ensure people are
still able to access your site, through the old links Your old links will still
work and bring people to the same posts which are

links with the Blogger links So to change the
settings Let’s go to our dashboard and click ‘Settings’ Now first, we’ll change
the time zone here Choose your location and Click ‘Save’ Now go to ‘Permalinks’ And choose Month and Name as this is the format which
blogger uses and we want to match with that And then click ‘Save Changes’ Okay so now we are done

the blogger site, which you’ve imported
into wordpress Se we’ll click ‘get
code’ button, next to it And it will show you
something like this Now to setup the redirection
