How to Setup WordPress on BlueHost and Register a Domain Name

A good piece of advise if you are thinking of #bluehost. I started hosting with them in may 2013. Just after a couple of months, my websites were down for more than 3 days. The only way to communicate with them was through Facebook. It may happen with any server, but their inability to communicate with the clients but only through Facebook is really sad. I started getting problems with my emails slowly. The emails from different domains/ different email accounts will stay in the outbox for hours before leaving. I sent them emails about it. They will reply back to me but the thread will be missing. They will keep asking silly question in their reply after a day or two. I never had any email problem sorted. I moved 5 domains to new hosting. I just do not want any other to get into this nightmare; hence wasting my time and writing this. WHen you google for #bluehost Bad service, there are many Davids, and Sharma’s talking so nicely about #bluehost in their blogs aor Hosting review sites. Beware!

In this video I’ll show you how to register a domain name with NameCheap and then how to setup your 1-click WordPress site with BlueHost. See below for links.

I highly recommend BlueHost for anyone new to online business/blogging. For those who require specialised hosting solutions, I recommend a couple of other solutions. Check out my resources page at 4 Minute Vids dot com if you’re interested.

    Nice video. One question though? Why not just buy the domain on Bluehost? I am going to create my first site and am leaning towards bluehost. Mainly because of the easy 1 click wordpress upload and I can get the domain and hosting together. I need things as easy as possible. If any other hosting companies beside hostgator make things as easy as possible I would like to know who they are?

    Great tutorial, I was looking for a video showing how you would setup the hosting when you already have a domain, so thanks. Wanted to know if I can change the nameservers 3 days before I sign up to bluehost so that once I sign up it will be live right away? thansk
