Today I want to share how easy it is to start a WordPress blog on Bluehost. Starting a blog with Bluehost is really cheap and only costs a few dollars a month. The best part about starting my blog was the low startup costs. I’ve been using Bluehost since I started this blog and still do!
Pick your plan
I would start with the Basic plan. It’s more than enough for most bloggers. You can always upgrade later if you want.
Select your domain name
This is important, so put some thought into your blog name. It’s what encompasses what you and your blog are all about!
To get the best price, select the 36 month plan. This will save you money and you don’t have to renew your blog every year. I have heard horror stories from other bloggers that forgot to renew and their blog expired. Don’t make this mistake!
If you aren’t sure if you want 36 months, at least select the 12 month plan. This way you can try blogging and still get the FREE domain name. Once you have checked out, it’s time to install WordPress. Bluehost makes it super easy to create a WordPress blog. They do most of the work for you!
In Bluehost, click on the hosting tab and then the cpanel tab. Scroll down and select Install WordPress. Let’s connect WordPress and Bluehost together!
This is a great, free feature Bluehost provides you with and it’s really easy to set up. Just enter your domain name into the space and click ‘log into WordPress’. Everything will then be installed for you.
Once WordPress and Bluehost are done connecting everything, you will be taken to your brand new WordPress page.
