Since most people do not know where to start when it comes to finding a good host for their blog, I thought it’s wise to dedicate a whole page on how to sign up with Bluehost and install WordPress.
Keep in mind that it should not take any longer than 5 minutes to complete registration. Simply follow the steps below.
How to sign up with Bluehost and install WordPress.
STEP 2 – Choose the cheapest hosting package ($3.95) and a domain name for your website. It doesn’t have to end with .com, you can also use different endings (such as .net, .org ).
Just type your domain name.
STEP 3 – Enter your personal details for completing the registration process. Add your name, address, e-mail address, and choose a payment type.
STEP 4 – Choose a suitable hosting package. You can either sign up for 1 year, 2 years, or even 3 years. If you are just starting out and learning the ropes, choose 1 or 2 years.
Domain privacy is optional. If you want to keep your website fully anonymous, tick that option. If you don’t want to stay anonymous, un-tick that option and you’ll save another $0.99 per month.
Website essentials are also optional. It’s wise to sign up for Site Backup Pro, but WordPress is quite secure. If the website you are building is extremely important to you, pick those options. On the other hand, if you un-tick those essentials, you are able to sign up for less than $75. This is probably the cheapest hosting package you will ever find, yet it’s reliable and secure.
Step 5: Pay for your selected package and you’ll be directed to choose your password.
Step 6: Install WordPress, this is easy, here is the work-through from Bluehost themselves.
That is it, that is how you signup with Bluehost and install WordPress, thank you for reading.
