After you first register, Bluehost will send you an easy wizard so that you can install WordPress on your new website. WordPress with Bluehost is still very simple to use. Go over to the My Sites region to start the wizard by clicking mostly on the Site Creation button:
Then you should fill over all necessary information on the name of your website and your username and password for your WordPress blog management.
You can access your latest blog dashboard until the installation is over.

The WordPress Editor will be started to allow you to write your blog posts that used a truly intuitive block structure. Select and type to add text. You may add new ‘lines’ for many other contents, such as a picture or an embedded YouTube video.
Change the looks of blogs
So if you generate a WordPress blog, accessing WordPress’ huge array of themes and plugins is among the major advantages. This is a fast summary of the two:
Themes: change your free WordPress blog
Plugins: add features to your blog
You always have an active theme when you generate a WordPress blog. It’s either the WordPress theme or even the theme you selected throughout the Setup Wizard of Bluehost.
But currently, there are many thousands of WordPress themes accessible, so you’re not just a selection of them.
Process to Install WordPress theme
Once you have discovered a theme you adore, it is easy to add this theme to your website with WordPress.
This is how:
- Floating over the look.
- Choose themes
- Press the button Add New
- Search only for the theme by title, and click install if you have chosen a free theme on WordPress.org.
- If you buy a premium theme is the one that you should have received when you bought the theme; tap the Upload Theme button to download the ZIP file.
Please ensure you tap the Activate button after installation of your concept to unlock it on your site.
Add Various Functions in the Blog
Even when themes mainly relate to the appearance of your blog, plugins help you add functionality.
You can only write blogs and generate pages when creating your first WordPress blog.
Plugins enable you to add further advanced features such as:
- Contact forms
