How To Start My Blog or WebSite with WordPress on Bluehost Hosting

WordPress is our first choice to work with because it’s really make the work comfort and helpful and BlueHost is one of our best hosting providers.

We work with others hosting providers but ZvezdaGeek.com is run on VPServer from BlueHost and that’s why we recommend BlueHost for running Blog website.

Before we start, we will set short description about why we use WordPress and BlueHost.

Why WordPress?

It’s complete and free CMS with multi developers work with WordPress and offers Plugins make your work run easy.

CMS is brief of Content Management System, which is platform work as backend let you run, create and edit your content and every things on your website.

Plugin(s) is a small / large software have a group of codes / functions that add new features / tools to WordPress websites. It’s very helpful for you because you will make your website(s) professional with just click on setup button.

Why BlueHost?

Big Hosting Providers arround the world offer same features to them customers but from company to another, there are many differents between features and BlueHost (For Us) is:

  • Stable (about 95%).
  • Runing many websites even on Shared Hosting Plan (it’s helped us on our first months when we started online websites – for testing).
  • Control Panel is easy to use.
  • Customer Service is good not bad BUT you need to be calm and develop yourself with more infomations about Coding and Hosting Problems because a lot of problems will not be them responsibility to solve it. (Udemy can help you).

Second Step is, Select Your Plan and on this page there is 3 options to start your hosting plan and we can offer small tip for you: If you plan to work on one website with small data, so, Basic Plan is good for you with only $3.49 per month But if your work is bigger, so, check other options and choose what is good for your work.

Third step is, choose your domain name by searching about it or if you already own a domain name, you can enter it in next box labeled by “I Have a Domain Name” and you will go through new steps to set your domain name DNS pointing to BlueHost.

If you didn’t bought your domain name, BlueHost offer Free domain name for new account.

So, what you do Zvezda Geek Team?

To be honest, we always buy our domains name from one place only and it’s Godaddy, it’s wonderful provider when we need domain name. (at least for us).

What?! that’s mean you never collect FREE domain from BlueHost.

No, we got it but only when we opened our first account.


OK, the secret is, Godaddy offer millions of coupons online and when you need to extend the domain name period, you can find coupons offer from 30% to 60% on your payment. And, BlueHost didn’t offer coupons at all, so, after your first year, you will renew your domain name with about $15 and for ever.

Hope our answer clear this point for you because no one say the truth about it or mention about it.

After clicking on File Manager you will go to new Control Panel and you will be on folder call /public_html/, here your website(s) will run and work.

Any hosting provider let you set one domain name attach with your account BUT BlueHost offer many domains name attach to hosting account BUT beware that you will have only one main domain and for that beware with naming your folders here.

Example: when we set ZvezdaGeek.com folder, we set unique name to host ZvezdaGeek.com on it. (For security we cannot write what we call our folder, and you should do it too. Safety First). Your folder shouldn’t be the same name of your domain name, the linkng issue will set through Data Base (DB).

So, you folder should be like this: /public_html/[Your Own Name]

Now, the important step is downloading WordPress and to be sure that you have latest version, click here to download it from official WordPress website.

It’ll take minutes as the source folder will be yours as .zip folder. On your hosting folder (Same folder that you just set it as above steps above), upload the .zip folder and on top menu you can find button call extract and hit it to make you source folder unzip. (Always, delete source folders from your hosting because it’s eat your hosting space and after while you will be force to expand your space).
