How to Start a WordPress Blog in 10 Minutes or less with BlueHost

I’ve been asked this a lot. How can one start a WordPress blog in as little time as possible?

My answer is always “it depends”.

For an absolute starter, it could be somewhere between 30-40 minutes but if someone has a little understanding of how the process works, it could be under 10 minutes!

Both BlueHost and iPage (owned by the same Endurance International Group) offer specialized WordPress hosting packages. You don’t need to go for a premium or any other shared hosting plan.

Just sign up for a WordPress hosting account with either of the companies and launch your blog in under 10 minutes! That’s right, under 10 minutes.

Let me try to explain the process minute by minute.

Minute 1:

Go to BlueHost WordPress Hosting page and select the suitable plan. They have 3 broad categories. If you’re just starting, start with the basic one and you can upgrade if required.

Minute 2:

Once you select a plan, it will take you to sign up form. Here you will register your domain or use an existing one that you might have registered previously.

Minute 4–5:

In the next step, you will have to fill your personal details and select optional add-ons.

Minute 6:

Next, you will make the payment using either credit card or PayPal. You can also use your Payoneer card for making the payment.

Minute 7–8:

Once payment is completed, you will receive account information on your email. USe the details to log in to your BlueHost account.

Minute 9:

In the BlueHost panel, click Install WordPress option and within 20–40 seconds, your WordPress blog would be ready to go.

Minute 10:

Login to your WordPress account and start publishing!
