Install Wordpress-

Bluehost has recently come out with a new sign-up flow called Bluerock where our customers have WordPress automatically installed at sign-up without having to go in and manually install themselves. It allows for a much more user-friendly experience

This step isn’t hard at all. Bluehost makes it very easy to create a WordPress blog and it is FREE. And they have an awesome support team.

HELPFUL TIPS:

Note: If you buy your Domain name from Bluehost ( which I recommend) You can skip this section and go straight to Installing wordpress.

1. Connect your domain and your hosting.

If you bought your domain from Go Daddy, then you will need to change your domain to your hosting account. Go Daddy has a full support page for setting nameservers for your domain names.

Below is a quick overview on how to do this:

If your domain name is registered with godaddy but hosted through another company, such as Bluehost (or on a server you control), you'll need to change its nameservers. What that is, we don't know! You'll have to talk to your host or admin to find out what your nameservers should be.

Once you have those nameservers, you can set them on your domain name using these instructions.


How to modify your DNS Nameservers when you are using Go Daddy for your domain and Bluehost for your hosting:

  1. Log into the GoDaddy.com Account Manager.
  2. Select Manage Domains from the Domain Names drop-down menu or the Manage Your Account list.
  3. 3.Select the domain name you wish to modify using the check boxes and then click Set Name Servers.
  4. Enter your updated name server information in the spaces provided under the blue Name Servers heading on the right side of your page and click Save Changes at the bottom. Your entries should look like this: ns1.bluehost.com; ns2.bluehost.com.

You will then need to add the domain you bought (such as through GoDaddy) as an add-on domain to your Bluehost web hosting. You can do this by clicking on “Domains” when logged into your Bluehost web hosting account and then clicking on “assign.” Follow the steps and it is very easy!

If you need more help with this step, contact Bluehost Support. They are awesome, and very helpful.

I cant even tell you how many times that I called Bluehost.  I would call back for each step that I needed help with, so that I wouldn't bug just one person and keep them on the phone for hours.  they are so cool, and helpful, but I can only absorb one step at a time on the phone.


  • When you are in your cPanel (you will receive a link to this in your welcome email from Bluehost), find the part that says “MOJO Marketplace.”
  • Click the “One Click Install” button.
  • Then, click on the WordPress icon on the next page located under “Blogs.”
  • Click on the “Start” button. This will begin the installation.
  • Once in the installation process, you will have to decide which domain you will want to install WordPress on. Click the drop down menu to the domain you plan on using.
  • Now, you will see “Advanced Options.” This is where you choose your username and password for your WordPress website. You should choose something secure. Don’t use “Admin” as your username. This is popular with hackers. Instead, create a username that is a combination of symbols, letters, numbers; don't use your name. You will want to check “Automatically create a new database for this installation” as well, unless you already have a different database (if you don’t know, then you probably do not).
  • Click “Install Now.”
  • Remember to save your username and password


Congratulations!  You have just set up your first Wordpress Blog.  Now the fun stuff begins: Writing amazing money making content, and a cool design that shows off your stuff.


Some More Quick Tips: 

  • You will get an wordpress email with login information.  Save this information separately.  Create a folder with WP login info.  This email will include your WordPress login URL (your URL is separate from everyone else’s and it’s the only way you can access your WordPress account), your username, and your password.
  • The first thing you’ll want to do is add a post (and change any default post, if there is one).  Go to your left-hand, vertical menu and select “Posts>>All Posts”.  The default "Hello World” post will open up.  Replace the Title with your own and the text with your own.


  • Login to WordPress with your username and password


That's really it, now you know how to login to the WordPress Dashboard where you can install themes, plugins, and write blog posts among other things.

  • You should then see your new dashboard.  Ignore all the stuff under the “Welcome” message….
  • If you want to capture your new customers email address you can sign up with Aweber.

I highly recommend them. They are the oldest and best in their field.  I have been with them for over 11 years and love their customer service.  No one does it better.

  • “Visit” your post or site, and make sure everything looks the way you’d like it to.

There is, of course, a lot more to learn – such as pre-scheduling posts, adding more plugins, tweaking your CSS, adding audio or video plugins, and more – but get comfortable with blogging and make some posts first, rather than trying to jump from WordPress beginner to expert all in one day.


Happy Blogging!
