How to Setup a Web Hosting account in Bluehost?
Choose a free domain or use your existed domain name
In the next page, you can decide to get a free domain name from Bluehost, or you can set up with your existed domain (If you have an old domain already). The Bluehost domain registration service is also excellent. But it is providing the free areas along with hosting pages only but not individually.
If you are using the existed domain, you should update Bluehost Nameservers.
No problem you can do this Name server updating process later. Or enter the new domain name you wish to buy in the “New domain” field; the new domain name will be active with your Bluehost web hosting. (Remember: The free domain is valid up to 1 year only, after that you must renew the domain).
Fill the Account Details carefully
In this page, you need to enter your details (Name, Email address, Address of the registrant). After that check the filled details once before submission. The login details will be sent to the given email address.
Select and Fill the Package information
Now choose the package which you want to host to land your blog/blogs. Here deselect the “Site backup pro” and “Site lock Domain Security” if you not need.
Enter the Billing information to complete the Purchase
In billing information, there are two options available. They are “Pay by Credit card” and “Pay with Paypal.” Choose any one of the payment options as you wish. Then click on “Complete” at the end.
Finally, you will receive the Congratulation page. Your new hosting Purchase is 90% completed. Now you need to set up a new password for your Bluehost hosting account.
Set the Password

Then choose the enter your password (as your choice) or use Password generator option in the page and click on Create. 98% is completed.
