Getting Started @ Bluehost
A hosting account is a powerful tool for you to use not only in building and managing your website, but also for email, web applications, and much more. We've got everything you need to get started right here, so keep reading!
New Account Basics
Just getting started? Log into your control panel and take a look around.
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 its 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 it 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 check out the options from Mojo Marketplace. And if you've already got a site, add an FTP account and move your files to Bluehost!
We're flexible folks, which is why we have several payment options, adjustable renewal settings, and easy access to your billing history.
Accessing your account is as easy as entering your domain name and password on the login screen. Secure your login by enabling two-factor authentication and single sign-on!
Search our Help Desk or open a chat! We're here to help.
