How To Setup Your WordPress Blog On BlueHost

Setting up a WordPress blog doesn’t require any special effort. It has become very easy now a days to setup and configure a WordPress blog. It you’re launching a WordPress blog for the first time, BlueHost is an ideal choice. They have been in the hosting business for more than a decade. They are one of the most popular companies when it comes to WordPress hosting.

The first thing that you need to do is find out which plan you’re going to go with. Once you’ve selected your plan, you need to select a domain. Just enter the domain that you want for your blog. If the domain is already registered, you will need to use another domain. For those who already own a domain, you can transfer them and bring them to BlueHost.

3-Domain Registration

Once you have selected your domain, you will need to fill up a form providing all your details. It will include your name, address, country, zip, email address etc. Make sure you provide a valid email address. Your host will use the email address to contact you for any issues and vice versa.

4-Contact Info

The next step is the most important step. You will need to select your account plan. For the first year, domain registration is free. You also have the additional options like SiteLock Domain Security, Siteup Backup Pro, Search Engine Jumpstart and Domain Whois Privacy. Of course, all of these are optional and whether you decide to go for them will completely depend on your budget. If you go for all of them, it will increase your bill significantly.

5-Choose Plan

Once you’re done choosing the right hosting plan, you will need to provide your billing information. Bluehost supports a lot of cards – Mastercard, Visa, Amercian Express etc. Provide all the financial details regarding the card and proceed.

6-Billing Info

Once you have made the payment, you will be redirected to cPanel. It’s the place where you have full control over your web hosting. Everything that you need to monitor or configure can be done through the cPanel. Once you’re in the cPanel, look for WordPress under Website Builders.

7-cPanel

Once you click on it, you will be redirected to the WordPress installation page. The installation page will have an one click installation option. Now a days, almost all the web hosts have one click installations for most of popular CMS including WordPress. In the next step, ‘Start’ your WordPress installation process.

8-WordPress

In the next screen you will have the option of choosing your domain on which you want to install WordPress. Many bloggers have more than one domain registered with their host. In that case, they can specifically choose on which domain they want to install WordPress.

9-Install WP

Then comes the last step of the installation process. You will need to fill out some details which includes your blog title, admin username, password and email. You also have an option of creating a new database for WordPress. It’s best to keep it enabled. Once you’re done filling up the details, click on ‘Install Now’ and it will install it on your server.

10-WP Login

Once you’re done, you can then go to ‘http://yourdomain.com/wp-login.php’ and start blogging. This is as simple as it gets when you’re installing WordPress on your host.

Shown below displayed on the Zac Johnson Blog, you will see I have opened the url within the Blog Engager. I have access to vote, comment, save to my favorites, socially share, and I have access to my full profile drop down menu.

I can also visit the blog posts submitted before or after, or choose to visit a random blog post. You can also close the frame opening the original blog post at anytime.

Visit the post in the Blog Engager here.
