Let’s work our way through the maze to install WP with Bluehost.
Below is a step by step tutorial that shows how we setup Bluehost on one of our Live Test Sites (wpdingo.click) in March 2016. We hope you find it beneficial!
How to Install WordPress for Bluehost
Step 1: Choose your hosting plan with Bluehost and complete the order.
Step 2: Straight after the order has completed, the following Welcome screen is displayed. Looks like we need to setup a password, so let’s click “Create your Password”.
Step 6: Then click Website.
Step 7: And then click Install Now.
Step 15: (Optional) For those with Coming Soon pages, you will find 2 DNS records (shown below from the Domains screen of the Bluehost admin area) that need to be added to your Domain Providers Admin Portal.
Look for Nameservers, and replace the existing records (which are usually ns1.yourdomainprovider.com & ns2.yourdomainprovider.com etc.) with the 2 Bluehost records.
Please be aware that changes to DNS records can take up to 24-48 hours, so unfortunately, you might see the coming soon page for a little while.
