Bluehost will email your login information. Just go to the dashboard. In order to install WordPress, double-click “Install WordPress”.
Click the Green Install Button
Choose the Domain You Registered or the One You Transferred
Enter Your Blog’s Details
- Check the ‘Show advanced options‘ box and then fill in the title, username, and password.
- Your title will be the name of your blog (eg. Eugene Mota).
- The username and password will be what you use to login to the admin dashboard of your WordPress blog. Don’t lose this information! You’ll need it later on in the setup process. And whenever you need to login to the admin dashboard, in the future.
The WordPress Install is Initiated and Bluehost Lets You Know When It’s Complete
Click “View Credentials” and Access Your WordPress Dashboard
- Click on ‘Admin URL’ (located below the green box).
- Enter your WordPress login credentials from step #8.
- This will take you to your WordPress dashboard. This is the control center for your blog. Here is for example where you customize design, write blog posts.
