How to Host a WordPress Site on a Reddit Hosting Account

Many of you might know that Reddit is one of the most popular websites in the world, with over 400 million monthly active users. Many of those users are likely familiar with how WordPress can be used to create websites, because it is so simple to use and there are so many great WordPress themes and plugins available online. What you might not know is that Reddit also has a web hosting service that you can use to get your own website up and running on the platform.

In this article, we’ll tell you the steps you need to take to get started with WordPress blogging on Reddit, as well as some additional details about the platform and its users.

Step 1: Find The Best WordPress Theme For Your Site

As we mentioned above, Reddit has a web host that you can use to get your own website up and running on the platform. One of the first things you’ll need to do is to find a suitable WordPress theme for your site. There are hundreds of thousands of themes available, and the best way to find the right one is to search for features that are useful to you as a blogger. Keep in mind that not all themes are created equal, and you want to make sure that you find a theme that is flexible enough to work with but is also simple enough to follow.

Step 2: Customize The Appearance Of Your Site With Cred

The next step is to customize the appearance of your site with Cred, the premium membership that allows you to fully customise the visual appearance of your site. To learn more about Cred, visit this link:

Once you’ve created an account with Cred and made the initial purchase, you’ll need to visit the dashboard to see all of the customizations that you can make to your site. From the dashboard, you can access all of the features that you can use to completely change the way your site looks.

Step 3: Install WordPress On Your Server

The final step is to install WordPress on your server. This is quite simple to do, and we’ll get to the details below. You can use either the free WordPress.com service or the self-hosted WordPress.org service to do this. If you’re just getting started, we recommend the former, as it’s easier to use and provides you with more features. However, you might want to look into the latter if you’re planning on monetising your blog or website.

Step 4: Configure Your Reddit Account

Once you’ve got WordPress installed on your server, you’ll need to visit your Reddit account and navigate to the settings page. Here, you can choose to have your content appear in either your “front page” or “static page”, as well as configure many of the general settings for your account. Some of the settings are very specific to Reddit, so ensure that you follow the correct procedure to ensure your account functions correctly.

Step 5: Create Content For Your Site

The last and arguably the most important step is to create content for your site. You can do this in a variety of ways, but the simplest is to use the free WordPress.com service to create a blog for your site. If you’d prefer to use the self-hosted WordPress.org service, you have a variety of options to choose from. Once you’ve created a blog post, you can click on the permalink (the unique URL) to take you to your post in the website. This is important, as it means that you can use all of the content that you’ve created, whether it’s a blog post, news story, or product review, to attract visitors to your site.

That’s all there is to getting started with WordPress blogging on Reddit. Hopefully, this article has given you a good understanding of what the platform is and how you can integrate WordPress into your site. Whether you choose to use the self-hosted WordPress.org service or the free WordPress.com service to get started, you can’t go wrong.
