Summary of this tutorial:

Starting a WordPress site can be confusing for a new user. The first choice you would want to make is if you would want a WordPress.com or a WordPress.org site.

In this video, we will be setting up a WordPress.org site on BlueHost using the link below.

http://www.wpbeginner.com/refer/bluehost

Once with BlueHost we will use the Install WordPress link in our cpanel to start the quick WordPress installer. You will want to choose the url as well as the login information for logging in to your new site there.

You should now have a link to log in to your site that is your domain /wp-admin. Using that link you should be able to get to the login page for your site.

We would recommend removing most of the starting installed plugins and leaving the Akismet plugin.

Under Appearance, Themes you can select your theme of choice and then you will be able to add it to your WordPress.

    Thanks Amanda this was very helpful. Does Blue Host and WordPress include a default SSL certificate or does that need to be purchased separately?

    Hi, did you have to upgrade to business to access plugins? Or is that different if you're using a hosting company? Thanks
