Bluehost Review and WordPress Web Hosting Tutorial Step By Step [NEW]


Bluehost Review and Bluehost Tutorial step
by step. Hi guys, and welcome to a new episode about
web hosting. My name is Robert from Themeisle.com, and
this time I will talk about Bluehost, specifically the WordPress hosting plans of Bluehost. At the beginning of the video, I will talk
about some of its most essential features, and then I will show you how to use the interface
in your Bluehost user account, step by step. First of all, Bluehost is one of the best
WordPress hostings recommended on WordPress.org, which is the official WordPress website. 34% of the web uses WordPress, and more than
two million websites are using Bluehost. I’m not sure that the WordPress platform powers
each of these websites, but I can bet that over 80% of them, or even more, are using
it. Some of the best features of Bluehost when
it comes to WordPress are the WordPress-centric dashboard, which walks you through an easy
step by step process from start to finish along with the one-click installation tool. The free domain name for one year is also a good reason for choosing Bluehost if you plan to start a new website. You get very easy to use interface for creating
and managing business email accounts too. Also, you have FTP access, and the hosting
service is easily scalable because it is backed by in house WordPress experts available 24/7. Now, let me show you how to use Bluehost step
by step. So, this the bluehost.com homepage where you
can choose the hosting plan you want to start with. It is not about what you want but what you
need. Dedicated hosting is for more advanced websites
as well as WordPress PRO and eCommerce over here. If you want to start an e-commerce business
with lots of products in your inventory, you can choose the eCommerce plan, but this is not mandatory. Your website is new, so you can confidently start with the lowest price of WordPress Hosting over here. Remember that you can upgrade or downgrade
your hosting plan anytime, and you can also get help through their live chat if you are
not sure what to choose. If you want the king of WordPress hosting
from Bluehost, take a look at the WP Pro plans, which is pretty new, and it comes with a new
marketing center where you can view your traffic, social media, and blog traffic without ever
leaving the dashboard. It’s your choice, but for now, let’s go back
to the basic plans. For the lowest price, which is 2.68 Euro now, when I am recording this video, you get 50 GB SSD Storage for one website. If you are using other currencies, you can
select that in this dropdown. Let’s say you are in the United States, so
click on USD to see the price in your currency. So, in USD, the price is 2.95 per month now. All plans include a free domain for one year
and $200 marketing credit. $100 is for Microsoft Advertising, which means
that you can promote your website through Bing.com search engine and another $100 for
Google Ads. It is, obviously, the money you can spend
to promote your website in Google searches. New websites will never get organic traffic
so that it can be helpful for you. I think the bonus is available only for new
advertising accounts after you spend at last $25. I put the link to Bluehost in the description
box, so make sure you get the discount available right now. When you buy hosting through that link, we
will get a commission, and that will keep me happy and inspired to create more videos. It will not generate any additional costs
for you, so I will appreciate it if you decide to buy hosting through our link. At this step, I encourage you to wait a while
if you want to receive an additional discount, which you can claim once you see this pop-up
window. I think it would be fair to mention that the
lowest monthly fee is only available for the 36 months plan. After that, you’ll have to pay the regular
price, which is $7.99 You can’t pay $2.95 or $2.65 monthly. When you first sign up for Bluehost hosting,
you need to pay 12, 24, or 36 months in advance. If you don’t need all these extras down below
and you uncheck everything, you’ll end up paying less then $100 for WordPress hosting. For example, the basic 12-month price is $4.95/month,
and you need to pay a total fee of $59.4 for one year. The 24-month price is $3.95/month, and you’ll
have to pay $94.80 for two years of hosting if you choose this plan. The best price comes when you select the 36-month
plan, which is only $95.40 for three years of hosting. You don’t have to worry about anything for
the next three years, but keep in mind that the domain name is free only for the first
year. After that, you’ll have to pay somewhere around
$12 per year for a .com domain. If you can get a better price somewhere else
for your preferred domain name, feel free to use a domain you own in this step. It will not influence the final cost of your
hosting plan at all. I would recommend to keep it simple and in
one place. The first year is free, so you still win something. Moving forward, once you have decided which
plan to go with, the next step is to fill up all the details above and then choose the
payment method, which could be a Credit Card as well as PayPal. Once you are done, click the green Submit
button below and you are good to go. Now we can start creating our first WordPress
website with Bluehost, which is easier than you can imagine. Your purchase was a success, and you only
have to set up your account to access features and work on your site. Before doing that, you need to confirm your
contact information, so make sure you access the message received from Bluehost and click
on the green “Verify Your Email” button. Next, click on Create Account over here, choose
the domain name in this field, and create a password for it. Make sure your password is secure enough then
click on Create Account below. In just a couple of seconds, your account
will be ready, and you can log in. So, click on “go to login” and enter the password
set earlier. Now you need to choose a name and your site’s
tagline, and before clicking continue, make sure you turn on at least the “Do you want
a blog” button. When turning on this option, you’ll have to
choose where your blog posts will be displayed. If you want WooCommerce too, make sure you
turn on this, but remember that you can easily install it later through your dashboard so
you can start simple for now. Whenever you are ready, click on continue
and choose your preferred option on the next screen. I want to share my ideas, and also, I want
to offer fitness training so that I will continue with these boxes checked. Sure, I am comfortable creating websites,
but if you are a beginner, tick the first circle, and only then, you are ready to Continue
to Theme Selection. There are thousands of themes you can choose. I would recommend using Neve, which is a speedy
multipurpose WordPress theme ready for Restaurants, Freelancers, Lawyers, and many other businesses. The theme comes with well designed full website
demos, which you can install with one click and customize using your favorite page builder. If you are not ready to choose a theme right
now, skip the step and do it later on your dashboard. Once you click on the link below, the WordPress
platform will finally installed on your site, and you can check it out live on your browser. Bluehost gives you some more plugins, other
than de defaults you got when installing WordPress using the auto-installer. As you can see, there is a coming soon message
on your homepage, which will be deactivated once you launch your site. Now you access the dashboard too, where you can choose a free WordPress theme, other than the default one. Learn more about how to make a WordPress website

    REALLLY? I got Neve Pro recently and ThemeIsle is promoting EIG companies which you should NEVER go with. Ohhh myyyy…hope my experience with ThemeIsle is not close to what you can experience with EIG companies like Bluehost😕 Whaaaat a poor choice.

    Let's admit it… there is nothing good about bluehost. The only reason everyone is promoting them is their high commission affiliate program.
