In this article, you’ll learn how to install WordPress on Bluehost using various methods and also we’ll also cover what makes BlueHost unique for WordPress hosting.
On any web host where there’s no 1-click WordPress install option, you’ll need to set up WordPress manually. You’re going to need two things:
Bluehost provides both. Best of all, their basic web hosting plan is extremely cheap. Sign up using this link for a special Bluehost offer. When you click the 1-Click Install sign-up button on the Bluehost site, you’ll see a screen where you can set up your domain name for your new site.
If you don’t have a domain name yet, choose the new domain option. With your first year of hosting with Bluehost, a single domain is free but there’s a catch, that domain name is available for registration. We recommend to buy it upfront.
If you already have a domain name, then go ahead and type it into the second box above.
The next steps are straightforward. Just fill out your personal details, choose the hosting plan you want, and fill in your payment details. You may want to opt the cheapest plan first, as the need arise, you can easily upgrade it later.
Finally, fill out a secure password to access your site controls.
Visit your url by typing it in your browser and you should see your newly installed WordPress site with Bluehost. You may want to customize the look and feel of your WordPress site.
