After you’ve registered successfully the domain name and Hostgator hosting (View details in the article "How to register a domain name and hosting for your website"), you can call for the support of Hostgator help you install WordPress Website. But if you desire to establish your site, you can quickly install WordPress using the QuickInstall application.
I. QUICK INSTALL WORDPRESS WEBSITE

5. You fill out the data before beginning to install WordPress for your Website.
- http://vandon.com.vn: You choose the domain name you want to install WordPress on the HTTP:// list (For example, I selected the vandon.com.vn domain). Note: If you don’t want to install WordPress on the vandon.com.vn domain, but want to install Joomla on a subdomain of the vandon.com.vn, you create a travel directory in the vandon.com.vn folder by entering in http: // with the content http://vandon.com.vn/travel

Click the "http://vandon.com.vn/wp-admin" link to visit the admin page, where you can customize and manage your website.
II. CHANGE PASSWORD
As you can see, after you successfully install WordPress, QuickInstall will give you a password (for example, the password is "7vLEg747hvyMgyZ"). This password is too long to remember. So you need to conduct an administrative password change.
1. You log into the admin page by typing in the Web browser’s address bar content http://vandon.com.vn/wp-admin
2. Enter the username and password after you complete the installation process using QuickInstall. Then click Login to log into the admin page. In the admin page, select the Users tool located in the left menu bar, click Your Profile.
3. You enter the new password in the New Password and enter the password again in the Repeat New Password. Then, you click Update Profile to complete the procedure of modifying the admin password.
