Once you’ve completed registration with Bluehost you’ll need to go through the process of installing WordPress a blogging software.

Login to Bluehost and find the Website Builders section. Click on the WordPress logo.

Create your admin information. I suggest not using “admin” as your username.

Once you get the message that says “Your install is complete!” you’ll want to click on the “View Credentials” button and write down your Admin URL, Username, and Password.

3. Pick a theme

WordPress has tons of free themes to pick from. When looking at themes be sure to look at the reviews and try to pick something that has been updated within the last year.

Login to your site by going to and enter your username and password.
