You can easily create a site by clicking the “Create a Site” button in the upper right corner of your dashboard homepage.
This will take you to the “Create a new WordPress site” page.
Now that you’re on the “Create a new WordPress site” page, you’re just seconds away from spinning up a new, fly WordPress site!
Fields to complete on this form:
Site Owner – this field will likely default to your user account. However, if you’ve set up an organization in our app and want this site to belong to your team, you will want to select that organization from the drop-down
Site Name – this will be your site’s name both in Flywheel app as well inside WordPress. You can easily change both later.
Temporary Domain – you may leave this blank if you would like us to randomly generate a temp domain, or you can type in your own if you would like
WordPress admin username – this is the username you will use when logging into the WP admin page for the new site. It has no relationship with your Flywheel username. The two are separate.
WordPress admin password – this is the password you will use when logging into the WP admin page. Like the username, this password doesn’t change anything about your Flywheel account. They are two different systems.
Blueprint – if you have a Blueprint already created and would like to use it as a template for this new site you can select it here.
Payment Method – Before you complete this form, you will need to select the option of how to pay. More on that in the next step.
This is where you to determine who gets the hosting bill.
I’ll pay now – if you would like this site to be on a Starter, Freelance, or Agency plan and would like to pay right away, select this option.
My client will pay later – you may want to select this option if you would like to pay later or if you will be transferring ownership to your client. This option will put the site on a demo install which is available up to 14 days. Before the trial expires over you will want to complete payment or transfer to a client to complete billing.
Add it to a bulk plan – if you would like to add this site to an existing Freelance or Agency plan you own, select that from the drop down.
Once the payment method has been selected, you can create the site! It will magically generate on one of our servers and appear in your Flywheel Dashboard when it is ready!
Scoop two heaping helpings of vanilla ice cream into a tall glass. Slowly pour root beer into the glass.
Be sure to give the foam time to rise and then fall before you continue adding more root beer. In the event that you pour a little too fast, don’t worry! You just get to sip on your float a few seconds sooner!
