Bluehost makes it very easy to set up WordPress for your website. In just a few clicks you will be all set and ready to launch.
Log into Bluehost at https://Bluehost.com.
Select the “My Sites” option in the left navigation column.
Click the “Create Site” button to start making a website. You’ll be asked for a site name, like a book title for your website, and a tag line, like teaser text for your site.
On the next screen select the domain you registered from the drop-down list. You can also specify a directory to put this domain into which is helpful if you are going to have multiple websites but is optional.
Now the wheels will spin for a minute or two while your site is created.
And then you will be shown you your installation details.
Technically, you now have a website. It’s not very functional at the moment. In fact all anyone can see when they visit your website address is a “Coming Soon” page.
But your site is up and running. Now it’s time for you to finish up the site configuration tasks by adding the “All Important WordPress Plugins”.
