Follow this step-by-step tutorial to start your own blog.
Many people are making a living out of blogging. Some are even making a fortune blogging. Blog is a great way to make money while focusing on your passion.
Step 1: Getting Started
To get started, you will essentially need 2 things
If you’re just starting out and a professional blog for cheap, Bluehost hosting is a good option. They offer the cheapest plan, fast web hosting. Bluehost is a leader in shared hosting.
You get a free domain name when you get the hosting. The interface is easy to use.
Click on the “Get Started Now” button
Choose a plan. I recommend the plus or prime package; so that you can get $200 in free ad credits
Step 2: Choose Your Domain Name
Choose your domain name. Example oxwebsite.com
You will get a free domain when you purchase a hosting with Bluehost. If you purchase the domain separately it can cost you up to $15
Step 3: Enter details of your account and choose a plan
Make sure to use an email address that you have access too. You will be receiving account details, and other information to that email. You can also register by simply sign in with your google account
Next, choose your plan
Under Package Information, you will notice that the 36 months in advance is the best value. But if you are on a budget, feel free to choose the one year or the one that fit you best.
You don’t need the Site Backup or SiteLock Security features.
Enter your payment details and click submit. “You can also pay with paypal by click more payment options”
Skip the upgrades & special offers
Check your email for your login information and receipt. Make sure to check your spam folder if you don’t see them in your inbox.
Activate your domain
You do by simply opening the email and click the activation link.
Choose a password
At the end of your purchase, just click the “Create your password” button to choose a secure password.
Step 4: Install WordPress Software On Bluehost
It is very simple and quick to install WordPress on Bluehost.
Log into your Bluehost cpanel.
Locate the “Install WordPress” button and click it.
On the next screen, it will ask you to set a username and password.
After, you’ll see that WordPress has been installed.
You can log into the admin area of your blog the URL: http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin
