of helpful resources that will help you in your blog starting journey towards the end
of the video so stay tuned. The first step I’m going to cover is how to
choose and register your own domain name for free. To have a blog you have to have a domain name. Step 2 I’ll be going over how to choose a
hosting provider. To have a blog you have to have hosting. Step 3 is getting your blog set up for free
with the most popular blogging software today. The blogging platform is WordPress. If you want your blog to rank, reach success,
etc. WordPress is the way to go. If you don’t have time to start your WordPress
blog right this second be sure to bookmark this video so you can come back to it later. Let’s get started. The first thing you want to do is head on
over to Bluehost via the link that I provided in the description. Bluehost is where we will be getting a free
domain name and up to 63% off web hosting. Make sure you click the link in the description
to get this great deal. You can also enter
in the search address bar like you see here. Two have a blog you have to have a domain
name for people to find your blog and web hosting that powers your WordPress blog. A little about Bluehost. Bluehost powers over 2 million websites worldwide
and over 850,000 blogs around the world. They are also recommended by WordPress themselves
since 2005. They instantly install WordPress for you which
makes starting a blog that much easier. They provide 24/7 support via chat, email,
and phone. And they have a 30-day money back guarantee. If for any reason you are unhappy you can
cancel and get a refund no questions asked within the first 30 days. I do want to mention that the link is an affiliate
link and I’ll receive a commission which helps support this channel and helps put out more
WordPress tutorial videos. Once you click the link in the description
below or enter, you’ll be at the Bluehost home page. You’ll see the get started now button on
the page. Click the button. This is where you can select your hosting
plan. You’ll see four different options. You’ll see a Basic plan, Plus plan, Choice
Plus plan, and a Pro plan. I recommend going with the basic plan, and
then you can always scale up whenever you’d like. If you have more than one website, then you’d
want to choose either the plus plan or choice plus plan. The Pro plan I would recommend upgrading too
in the future once your blog gets running and starts bringing in lots of traffic and
revenue. I’m going to choose the basic plan for this
tutorial as this is most common. Go ahead and hit the select button on whichever
plan you would like to use. We are now brought to a domain page where
we can choose the domain name that we want completely free. Or if you already have a domain name, you’d
enter it in over on the right. For the new domain you can select if you want
it to be a .com, .net, .org, etc.… .com is the most popular domain extension so I’d
recommend going with a .com if you can. I’m going to type in a domain here and click
the next button. You are now brought to a create your account
page. This is where you will input your information. We have first name, last name. Business name is optional. Put your country address information. Put a phone number and lastly the best email
for you as you’ll get emailed a receipt of payment and a copy of your login credentials,
etc. Below that you will see package information. You’ll see account plan. This is where you can select the term for
your hosting package. You have 12 months, 24 months, 36 months,
and 60 months. As you can see you’ll save money the longer,
you purchase your hosting for. I’m going to select the 12 months package. Setup fee is free. Domain registration is free. Let’s Encrypt SSL is free. This SSL feature is a free SSL Certificate
which makes your site secure with the green bar and with the https. Domain Privacy is an addon that I highly recommend. It will prevent telemarketers and marketers
getting a hold of your personal contact information and bugging you with their services. The domain privacy will show Bluehost’s information
for the site and not yours. Sitelock security find is security for your
WordPress website and protects it from hackers. I’d unselect this as there are really good
free alternatives. You’ll see Codeguard. Codeguard creates daily backups and allows
you to restore your site with a click of a button in case something happens. There are free alternatives that work just
the same. SEO Tools Start you can keep unselected. This addon will submit your site to search
engines and provide a report on your site ranking and keyword rankings. Submitting your site to search engines you
can do for free. This isn’t necessary to have. Office 365 Email Essentials is the email software
Microsoft Outlook that is commonly included with Microsoft Office. If you’d like to have your email powered by
this Microsoft addon feel free to keep this selected. This isn’t necessary to have. All of these addons are completely optional
and up to you to get. As you can see you’re saving a lot for this
hosting package. Below that you will input your payment information. I’m not going to fill this out for protection
of personal information. Once your information is filled in you want
to select the I have read and agreed to Bluehost’s privacy policy and terms of service. Now click the submit button. You are now brought to a page where you will
choose a password for your Bluehost account. Click the create your password button. Input the password you would like. Click the I have read and agreed to Bluehost’s
Privacy Policy and Terms and Condition and click the next button. You will be directed to a congratulations
page. Click the blue login button to log in to Bluehost. Bluehost is also going to at this time email
your dashboard login information to the email address you provided. You will now see pick your Theme. Bluehost has a bunch of awesome free WordPress
themes to choose from. You can select a Theme now if you want too
or below the Themes you can click skip this step. If you choose a Theme now, you can always
change the theme you pick without any problem at a later date. I’ll be going over this in more detail, later
in the video. Once you choose your free Theme or click skip
this step you’ll be at the page here stating all done. Click the button that says start building
to start building your blog on WordPress. Once you click that and log in you will be
at the WordPress dashboard. This is what the WordPress dashboard looks
like. It’ll ask you a few questions as you can see. If you don’t need help just click the, you
don’t need help option. Once you do that you will see this page. You will see blog posts where you can add
new blog posts. You will see where you can add new pages to
your blog. If you want to change your navigation menus,
you can do so easily, and if you are going to sell products on your site, you can install
Woocommerce to do so. On the far left, you will see tabs. Hover over them and get to learn them. Posts is where you can add new posts. Pages is where you can add new pages. The media tab is where your images will show
that you upload to your blog. Comments is where you can view comments people
leave on your blog. Plugins is where you can install plugins for
your blog. Almost any customization or feature that you
would want more than likely there is a plugin already made for it. Appearance is where you can change the look
of your theme or change your theme to another one or a Premium theme. Select Themes when you hover over appearance. It will showcase free WordPress themes to
you can choose from. If you select most popular, it will show you
the most popular free WordPress themes. Hover over a Theme and click install and then
click activate to make the Theme your WordPress theme. You should also see add new theme on this
page. This is where you can add a new theme if you
got it from another site or it is a Premium Theme. A great resource I have used for several years
and recommend for professional WordPress themes that look like an award-winning design agency
did your blog is Themeforest. This is the Themeforest WordPress Blog Themes
page. You can easily browse WordPress blogging premium
themes. Click on them and get a live preview of Themes
as you can see here. Here are a few examples of Premium WordPress
themes that are already pre-made for you to input your information or change; however
you’d like. You’ll see they look really good. Click the link in the description below to
check out Themeforest. In the top left of your WordPress dashboard,
you will see welcome here or your site title towards the top of the page. Click this to view your site. To login to your WordPress dashboard, you
can do so via the Bluehost CPanel or by typing in your domain name with a slashwp-admin. Here’s an example. It’ll bring up this page here. Just input your login credentials to be logged
into WordPress. Another great resource that is helpful and
used by over 500,000 users is the drag and drop editor called Elementor page builder. Elementor page builder makes starting and
creating your WordPress blog easy. You can make edits by dragging and dropping. Search elementor page builder on the plugins
page and install and activate it if you’d like to try it out. Elementor has a free and paid version. I’ve provided a link in the description so
you can checkout and compare the features of the free and paid versions. Another great resource to check out is Fiverr. Fiverr is a great place to get tasks done
for just $5. It is helpful if you need a logo or something
done. I provided the link in the description below. And that is my programming blogging for beginners
