How to Create A Website: Fast and Easy Guide Part 3
The “How to Create A Website” guide you are reading is built on WordPress too.
Steps to Install WordPress
After the first login, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on “Browse the MOJO One-Click installs“.
Click on the WordPress icon to install the website software: WordPress
In this step, you are asked to choose the location of installation of the WordPress. You can choose between your domain name with the www or without the www. There is negligible difference between the two options (in fact visitors can visit your site with and without www). Just choose one which you like. At WP Learner, we choose the one without www.
You might be asked to whether to overwrite existing files. If you are following the steps in this guide, just choose “Continue“. The files in question are placed by Bluehost as a placeholder there, nothing worth keeping.
Remember to check the “Show advanced options” box here and save the admin username and admin password in a secure place. You can also change the website title and your email address there (these can be changed in a later step).
Don’t worry if you forget the username and password. After successful installation, the system will tell you the username and password again. Or, you can just click the ‘forgot password’ link in WordPress and the instructions on resetting your password will be emailed to your email address specified above.
Installing WordPress Video Tutorial
If you learn better with video, do take a look at the following tutorial. As Bluehost has revamped its website design, the look and feel of the website in this video is different from the current design. Yet, the basic concept is the same.
Bonus: How to Create Your Own Email?
Another benefit of creating your own website on Bluehost is that you can get unlimited amount of email accounts with your domain name. We include this section in the “How to Create A Website” guide to help you make full use of your web host.

Fill in the account name and password. The mailbox quota can be set at “Unlimited“. Then click the large green button “Create Account“.
All the email accounts created are listed below.
