New Account Basics
Just getting started? Verify your account purchase so you have access to all of your account features, and take a tour of your control panel.

Domains & Dns
You need two things to have a successful website: a domain name and a hosting account. If your domain isn't registered here, make sure the name servers are pointed to Bluehost.
Take control of your brand's reputation and set up a professional email @ your domain. Once you've got an account, log in to your webmail or configure your email to be delivered to an email application.
Build Your Site
How do you want to build your site? Choose from our in-house site builder powered by Weebly, install WordPress, or install one from Mojo Marketplace. And if you've already got a site, add an FTP account and move your files to Bluehost!
Search our Help Desk or open a chat! We're here to help.
