It will be downloaded in a zip format, save it anywhere in your disk.
2.) Go to ‘File Manager’ under ‘Files’ option inside your cPanel.
Now select your preferred domain (if you have multiple domains).
Before this, you need to make sure that your Domain is pointed to your preferred hosting, see the Tutorial ‘How to add Domain to Hosting.
3.) In the public HTML, upload ‘WordPress.zip‘ file & extract the files there by clicking on the Extract button on Top Right side.
