To help you start your blog, we’ve created the following video tutorial (You may want to make the video Full Screen by clicking on the button on the bottom right of the video.):

BlueHost Hosting Services


Cost of Hosting Unlimited Domains (Using the discount though our affiliate link):
$4.95 per month if you sign up for 1 year

    Great video 🙂 How do you go about adding on domains to the bluehost account. Is it as easy as hostgator?

      It’s very easy. Just go to the cpanel and under the domains tab, you click on Addon domains. From there they have a step by step layout on the page that you can follow to add your domains. It’s even more straight forward then hostgator, in my opinion.

    Hello Josh

    Why you choose BlueHost, Why not Hostgator ?

    Thank you for every motivational thing and post (:

    Take care

      Well, BlueHost is cheaper and I like their hosting support better. They are even offering direct support for wordpress users now. Personally I’ve never tried the new wordpress support team yet, but then again I consider myself a little more advanced in wordpress than most. If you’re a new user though, this could be very helpful.

    I just want to verify something. So with Bluehost, you can pay 4.95 a month and host an unlimited amount of domains? So you only need to pay 4.95 per month to run twenty sites,(minus the domain name cost)?
