Get A GoDaddy .99 Domain Name: http://bit.ly/1TkUZhX
Let’s Get Social!
We’ll go ahead and get started. I’m going to walk you right through.
I’ve been using Bluehost for several years. One of the big reasons I like to use it is that you get 24/7 support. They’re also English-speaking people; that’s huge for me. I’ve also had people who has been on the line to help me as much as … I think it was probably 30-40 minutes just to get a problem solved. I really like the support that I get with Bluehost. It’s been my choice for hosting on all of my websites. I do recommend it. I only recommend things that I use. Again, I’m going to leave a link below that will give you a discount. I do get a small commission if you use that special link, so I really appreciate it.
Now let’s dig in here. The first thing what we want to do is click get started. You’ve got three choices for plans here: basic, plus, and pro. Normally, if you’re just getting started and you’re a newbie, or you just have one website you’re going to set up, basic is probably going to be pretty much all you need for that. I’m going to go ahead and select basic here. I do have a domain name. I’m going to enter that here.
Now I’ve got my domain from GoDaddy. I’ll leave a link below also to show you how to set it up through GoDaddy. I just prefer for me personally I like to keep my domains separate from my hosting. It’s a free choice. Bluehost, they will give you a free domain if you choose to go with them also. That’s one of the benefits as well. For me, again, I just like to keep everything separate.
Going to close this out. Now right here you’re going to fill in all of your account information: first name, last name, address, all the standard stuff. Let’s get down here to package information. The 3.95 per month that we saw before, or the 3.49 actually, that’s going to be for 36 months if you choose to subscribe for 36 months. If you want 24 months, it’s going to be 3.95. Then the basic 12 month is going to be 4.95. For all of my new packages, I typically get the 12 month package.
You’re going to see some other things here as well, search engine jumpstart; I don’t get that. Site lock security; I don’t get that either. Then you just enter your payment information. I’m going to fill all of this out. I’m going to enter my payment information and I’ll get right back with you.
Now you can see I’ve got the congratulations. They also give you a couple of discount promotions for a couple things like Google Apps and Payment Sphere. Going to hit no thanks on this and keep going.
Once you get to this screen you’re going to see “Congratulations, your purchase was successful.” It’s going to say a confirmation email will be sent to you. Then it’s going to ask you to create a password. Now I tried to create a password and put it in here; however, it gave me an error. What I did, I pulled up my email from Bluehost. What I did, I went and got the email that I got from Bluehost. There’s a link here that says change your password. I’m going to click on this link. Again, I won’t show you this, but I’m going to enter a password. This is something new that they’re doing now. Apparently it’s already installed. I guess with this, all you have to do is just install it since it’s a WordPress Bluehost account. It just set it up automatically. Close that out. Going to log out of here.
Then again, we are on hosting for Bluehost right now. I’ve already had everything transferred over from my domain name from GoDaddy. Again, if you need help with that, you can see my tutorial on that, how to change your name server. Now everything’s already set up, but I do want to show you really quickly how you get to this backend of WordPress to log in. Make sure you’ve got your URL name here, so yourblogname.com/wp-login. That’s going to get you to this page. From there you type in your username, then your password. Now you are in the backend of your WordPress site. I hope this helped you out. It’s just that easy to set up your Bluehost hosting account with WordPress.
