Video Series on Getting Started With WordPress

Here’s an excellent video series put together by BlueHost on WordPress. For beginners looking to start a blog with WordPress it should be very helpful in gaining an understanding about getting it setup as well as the basics of using this powerful content management system. There is a playlist button on the top left of this YouTube video titled “PLAYLIST”. If you click on that button you can access the other videos in this series. Enjoy :)

Building a Site with BlueHost

The first step in building a website is to open a web hosting account with them. For a limited time, you’ll be able to take advantage of the special BlueHost promo price. New customers will receive unlimited web hosting for the low price of only $3.95/month. With the BlueHost promotion going on now, you will also receive $100 in advertising credits for Google, dozens of website scripts, a free site builder and more.

When you sign up with BlueHost you will also receive a free domain name for the first year. From the large library of web scripts, you will be able to choose a content management system to run your website, such as WordPress, Drupal or Joomla. The auto-installer software available in your control panel is what allows you to install these content management system (CMS) solutions with a click of a button.

Once the CMS platform of your choice is installed on your domain, you will be able to add content, edit themes and customize the website to your liking. The great thing about using BlueHost is that you will also get a free website builder with a drag-and-drop feature. If you prefer to see changes as you edit your website, you might want to use one of their website builders instead of using a CMS like WordPress. You can create an account with BlueHost risk free because they offer an anytime money-back guarantee if you decide you want to cancel your account.
