You should not let Username as admin because it will be easy to attack in the form of Brute Force, you should change it to another name and set a complex password. Remember to save this password.

Enter your email so that the important information about the website will be sent to your email, but these emails will fall into spam, so you will need to add the email address wordpress@yourdomain.com to Google contact list to get into your inbox.

As the website is just starting to develop, you should remember to tick the box “Prevent search engines from indexing this website” to avoid Google indexing the content you do not want to publish on Google. But later on, when completing the website, remember to untick it in WordPress settings.

Next, click Install WordPress, is complete.
