Choose A Domain Name
Before buying any hosting package you have to find a domain name. Domain name is a web address. To identify one or more IP addresses, Domain names are using. We can also say that domain indicates the location of a website.
Choose A Hosting PackageFirst, go to the homepage of Bluehost. You will see a page like this:
Then move the cursor to the Hosting and select “Shared Hosting” from the dropdown.
Details with shared hosting package appear before us. Have a look:
Here we notice that there are three packages: Basic, Plus and Premium. Which package will suitable to you?
Basic: In this package, you can host only one domain. Storage is also limited. Only 50 GB. Parked domain, Subdomain, Email accounts are also limited. This package is for portfolio type website like the personal portfolio, business portfolio, photography showcase etc.
Plus: As a shared hosting package, this is a great package. Storage, Addon domain, Parked domain, Subdomain, Email accounts are unlimited. They also offer $200 for marketing cost. You can promote your site by this $200. 1 SpamExtra also included. The great feature is that you can add unlimited websites.
Premium: All features are same like Plus with providing some extra features. They are Domain privacy and SiteBackup. In a word, domain privacy means they will hide your personal information like your name, address, mobile number, email address etc. from whois record. SiteBackup means your site will automatically backup.
Among this three packages, I suggest you buy Plus package. It will better for you.

After selecting the Plus package you will be redirect to this page.
This is for domain registration and it’s absolutely FREE. Type your own domain name here and click Next to check this domain is available or not. If available you will be redirected to the last step. You can also use your existing domain. If you have any existing domain, don’t forget to change the nameservers.
Enter Account information
Enter your account information here. Fill this form carefully.
From here Select Account Plan. I have selected 12 months. Now, look at the red mark. It was automatically marked. You can keep Domain Privacy Protection. You don’t need the other two options which are SiteBackup Pro and SiteLock Security. Unmark this options.
Enter your card information here. Before making your payment I suggest you check all above information once again. After checking all information, click on Submit button.
You will see a page like this. Just ignore this and click on the complete button.
Now you will see a screen like this:
Click on “create your password”.
