Okay, lets go through this. Open a new tab or window for Bluehost and have this guide open in another tab so it is easier for you to follow. Let’s move onto the first step.
1. What package should I choose?
You can have a look at the available plans but the Basic Plan will be more than enough to start a professional blog.
Under $3 per month is an awesome deal but there is a catch. You will pay the whole hosting plan to get the cheapest price. Do not worry it works out cheaper and much more value for money this way.
2. Plan Duration?!!
When I saw this for the first time, I was a bit hesitant. $106.20 for 36 months sounds like a lot more then the advertised amount of $2.95 per month. If you are serious about your blog then think of this as investment that is the deal of the century for the service you get. Do not think about, just go for it, it will work out good in the long run. There is also a 12 month offer, but that is not offer as much value as the 36 month plan does.
3. Choose Your Domain Name
Your domain will be the identity of your blog, ours is www.moneypeeler.com.
The name of the blog does not matter as such, as long as the content is good and what you offer to your audience is valuable. Whether you call the domain www.crazypoopfacefreakshow.com or www.helpmeiamahopelessloner.com will not really matter at the end of the day. I don’t recommend the above domain names, lol (Don’t do it!!).
Do not lose any sleep if you are undecided about a domain name at this stage. If you are still unsure just choose I’ll create my domain later and skip that part until you have found your perfect domain name.
4. Create your account section
This section is pretty self explanatory. Fill in the required fields or alternatively you can use your Google account details and sign in with your Gmail credentials.
Select the length of your plan
As mentioned above here you continue to scroll down and you will find the select a plan choices. I would recommend the 36 month plan as this gives you the most value for you money as it offers lower monthly prices. The 12 Month plan is also not going to break the bank but the monthly charges will be higher.
What If I want to Cancel?
No problem, Bluehost are the best in the business when it comes to offer services before and after the sale.
- 30 day Money Back Guarantee!
- Cancel anytime within the first 30 days from your purchase date
- A full refund is issued
- A risk free purchase
- Commit to changing your life, you do not even have anything to lose!
Scroll a little further down and your will have some options for package extras. Here I strongly recommend selecting Domain Privacy Protection. It will be an extra buck a month but it will save you lots of hassle and block all the spammers, bots and weirdos harassing you as your ownership details will not be on display for the whole world to see.
You can leave everything else unchecked.
Enter Payment Details
We are now at the final step, which is paying for the services we would like to use.
Check the terms and conditions and click submit. That is it, you have done it!
Happy Days! You have started the first day of the rest of your new life. Congratulations on your new hosting solution along with a Pro Blog!!
