Do you know that WordPress recommends BlueHost!
BlueHost comes up with affordable and flexible plans includes shared hosting, dedicated hosting. I personally recommend BlueHost for WordPress, as I started hosting with BlueHost and I have a hands on experience. As per my personal experience, I have no query with bluehost but only one cons I face that it does not support SSL with shared hosting. For SSL support you need to switch to dedicated or cloud hosting. But it is OK at the initial startup. So no worries.
They offer Unlimited Disk Space, Data transfer, Email accounts, Global CDN (Content Delivery Network), premium support and much more, which is more than enough to run WordPress. Grab discounts now.
Sign up for BlueHost ($5.95/mo unlimited Hosting + 1 Free Domain name)
Step by step tutorial to install WordPress on BlueHost cPanel:
BlueHost is the most recommended hosting for WordPress. BlueHost comes up with the pre-defined scripts and with the help of these scripts you can have your website live with less than 5 minutes. BlueHost offers standard cPanel hosting, which comes up with Softaculous Apps Installer.
So now you can install WordPress through Softaculous instead of manual time consuming process. And I suggest you to go with Softaculous instead of manuall process for WordPress installation. For any WordPress hosting, it is necessary and most important that the hosting should meet Technical requirements and BlueHost completely meets all the requirements.
Assuming that you already have the BlueHost account. So lets gets started with WordPress hosting on BlueHost.
Login to your BlueHost cPanel. Navigate to the Softaculous Apps Installer section. Click on WordPress from the below.
After selecting WordPress you will be redirected to the Softaculous Market. Click on Install.
Choose protocol, if you have SSL enabled than choose https:// else leave it as it is. Choose the domain for which you wants to install WordPress. You can specify the directory name or you can leave it as it is.
In Admin Account section, I recommend you to do not keep username as admin, because of security risks.
In select plugins section, I recommend you to install Limit Login Attempts plugin as it will keep away hackers from trying brutefore attacks. Once setting up all, click on Install. Also you can mail your setup details. Specify your email in Email installation details to, its optional. Within sometime WordPress will be installed and your site will be live within a couple of clicks.
Now you can access your WordPress dashboard from http://www.domainname.com/wp-admin . Here you are done.
