tutorial videos on a regular basis. Let’s get started. How To Start A WordPress Blog On Bluehost
in 2018 – Step-by-Step Video Tutorial To get started, you’ll be on Bluehosts home
page. You want to click the green get started button. You will see you can then choose from three
different plans. The basic plan, plus plan, and prime plan. You will see the basic plan you can get hosting
for as low as $3.95 a month and for the plus and prime plan you can get hosting for as
low as $5.95 a month. The basic plan works fine for almost everyone
especially when you are first starting out and starting a blog on Bluehost. You can always upgrade to a different plan
anytime you would like too. If you are going to have more than one blog
from the get-go then, you want to choose the plus plan as you can have unlimited sites
with this plan. Once you decide which plan you would like,
just hit the green select button to move on to the next step in starting your WordPress
blog. Once you click the green select button, you
will be directed to a sign up now page where you want to enter the domain name that you
want for your blog where it says new domain. You’ll see the .com next to it with some arrows. You can click on that area to pick your domain
extension. As I mentioned before I highly recommend you
go with a .com, .net, or .org as these are most common. If you already have a domain name that you
purchased from another provider, you would just enter that domain name where it says
I have a domain name. Remember you get a free domain name discount
though! Once you do that, hit the next button to continue
in starting your blog on Bluehost. You will now be on a create your account page
where you want to input your account information like your name, address, email address, etc. See below screenshot. Once you fill out your account information,
you want to move on to the package information section right under. You will see Account Plan first. Click that, and you will see you can choose
12 months, 24 months, 36 months, and 60 months. You will see the further out you purchase
your hosting for the cheaper your monthly cost will be. Choose how many months you want to purchase
your hosting for. You will see the setup fee, and primary domain
registration fee is free. Next, you will see a few additional services
to add to your hosting plan. You can go ahead and unselect all of these
as these are not necessary, and there are free alternatives that work just as well. The domain privacy protection option I would
consider though. This makes your personal information private
like your address, phone number, and email address. That information will be replaced with Bluehost’s
information. The primary domain registration protects you
from telemarketers getting a hold of your phone number or email and bother you trying
to sell you stuff related to what you do. I would consider that option. You can always add this option or any of them
at a later date if you decide you want one of the selections. At the bottom, you will see your savings that
you are saving by using our exclusive Bluehost link and then the total cost of the hosting
for your blog. Scroll down to the next part of the page which
is where you will enter your payment information. Once you get your payment information entered
select the, I have read and agreed to Bluehost’s Terms of Service, etc. Click the green submit button. Bluehost will now email you your Bluehost
login credentials along with some welcome emails. One of the welcome emails you will need to
activate the domain name that you got. If you already have your domain name or purchased
it via another domain provider then don’t worry about this step. Once you have completed your purchase, you
will be asked to create your password for Bluehost. Click the create your password button and
you will be directed to a page where you will create your WordPress password for your blog. Be sure to select the I have read and agreed
to Bluehost’s Terms and Conditions, etc. Once you have successfully created your password
a congratulations screen will pop up. Click the blue login button to log in to Bluehost
so you can choose a free WordPress theme for your blog. Bluehost gives you the option to pick a free
WordPress theme. They have
lots of great options to choose from. Once you choose your WordPress theme you will
be taken to a page that says your all set, start building. Click on the start building button
to continue to the WordPress dashboard to start your WordPress blog on Bluehost. You will now be directed to the WordPress
dashboard. Answer the questions it asks or you can click
the option saying you don’t need any help. You will now see some Bluehost tools on the
WordPress dashboard that are very helpful when you are starting
your WordPress blog on Bluehost. You can easily add new posts, pages, customize
the navigation menu, and install Woocommerce if you plan on selling products on your WordPress
blog on Bluehost. You will see a button that says launch your
blog. See screenshot above. Click the button and you will be able to name
your blog site title and your blog site description. When you log in to your Bluehost Cpanel you
will easily be able to navigate around. You can login to WordPress right from the
Bluehost Cpanel. You can easily access your billing, account
information, etc. Now I want to cover some helpful resources
that are really helpful for blogging. If you need help building your site there
are hundreds of Premium WordPress themes that you can purchase that makes your site look
professional and makes it easy to design and get your site looking how you want it too. You can visit Themeforest. This is what the Themeforest site looks like
