Welcome to the very first video tutorial of WordPress for Beginners. In this post, we are going to learn how to buy web hosting with a domain name for WordPress blog. So let’s start with what is web-hosting:

A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web.

Now let’s talk about the domain name. A domain name is a network address. For example, “techrrival.com”. So to set up a wordpress blog you need to buy a domain name along with web-hosting.

Many new bloggers make the mistake of buying web-hosting from unreliable hosting providers and they regret it later. So, first of all, you need to select which hosting provider can provide you with effective web-hosting at a reliable price.

Here in this tutorial, we are going to use Bluehost which is a top recommended hosting provider for WordPress. In Fact, Tech Arrival is also hosted on Bluehost from the beginning. You will also get a free domain name for a year via BlueHost. So let’s get started.

Step by Step guide to Buy Web Hosting

Update: You can also buy hosting at cheap rate from www.siteground.com

You will be redirected to Bluehost plans page where you will see 3 different hosting packages that are offered by BlueHost. If you are not very tight on your budget, I will recommend you to buy the plus package. With plus package, you can also host additional websites on your server. Click ‘select’ to select your plan.

Bluehost Plans

Choose desired domain name or enter existing domain name and map it to BlueHost by changing its Name Servers to

  • NS1.BLUEHOST.COM
  • NS2.BLUEHOST.COM

Now click next.

Choose Domain

Now you require entering your details (Name, Country, Address, Phone Number, Email). Verify these details twice and then head over to package information.

Bluehost Account Info

Select desired plan. Price is dependent upon plan length. Higher the plan length lower the cost. Untick all other options like Domain Privacy Protection, Site Backup Pro, SiteLock Security etc. as they are not necessary and you don’t actually need them. You can save few bucks by this step. Now head over to billing information.
