How To Buy a Domain Name For Your Blog

How To Buy Domain Name For Your Blog




Here everything about how to start a blog and make money from a blog. How to buy a domain name and web hosting.



Many new bloggers make the mistake of buying hosting from unreliable companies, and they regret this misstep later. In this step-by-step guide, I will share everything you need to know to buy reliable web hosting and a domain name.


For the purpose of this tutorial, I will buy hosting from Bluehost, which is an officially recommended hosting service for WordPress. As a bonus, with Bluehost, you will get one free domain name.



Not only will this save you money, it will also allow you to manage everything in one place.


Bluehost offers free SSL certificate which is must have & also you have an option to upgrade to PHP 7.0x





1. Domain Name


A domain name is like your online address. This is where your blog/website lives.


You will get one free domain name with Bluehost, or you can use any of your existing domain names if you already have one purchased. 


If you have not yet decided on your domain name, this guide will be helpful to you. You can also use a free service like BustAName, or LeanDomainSearch, or NameStation to find a good domain name.


2. Payment Mode


When purchasing a web hosting and domain, you can make payment via credit card, debit card, or PayPal. Be sure to have your payment mode on hand.


Here is one guide that I recommend you read first. This will give you some basic information about web hosting, and you will learn how to save money on your web hosting purchases.

Now let’s buy hosting…


The step-by-step guide to buying a web hosting plan:

To begin, head over to Bluehost homepage and click on “get started now”.




This will take you to a page where you will see three different packages from which to choose. I will quickly explain the various packages, but you should also read this guide to get a deeper understanding of what these packages offer.


Bluehost Plans


Here are my recommendations:


Running only one site: Basic

Running more than one site: Plus

Need guard: Prime

Since the price difference between plus and prime package is not much, you should opt for Prime.  Even if right now you’re only hosting one site, with the Prime package, you can host unlimited sites in the future if you need to.





Step 1: Choose a new (free) domain, or use an existing domain.


After selecting your plan, you can either choose to get a free domain name from Bluehost, or you can use any of your existing domain names.


Buy domain name

Remember that you can use your free domain name later if you don’t need it now.


You can also claim your free domain at a later point. Just email Bluehost’s customer service team and they’ll help you out.


If you are using an existing domain name, you need to change the nameservers at your domain registrar to:

If you want to keep things simple, enter the domain name you wish to buy in the “new domain” field, and your free domain will be activated with the web hosting plan.


Click on “next”, and from here, the remaining steps will be very simple.


Step 2: Enter your account details.




In this section, you need to enter your details (name, email address, address, etc.).


Make sure you verify every detail, especially your email address. Your login and hosting information will be sent to your email address.


Step 3: Select the right package.


This part is crucial, and you should pay extra attention here to make sure that you are not overcharged for add-ons that you do not need.


Choose your hosting package for a 24 or 36-month term.  You will notice that the price decreases as the tenure increases.

Be sure to deselect the options “Site Backup Pro” and “Sitelock Security” as you don’t really need them.


Step 4: Complete your hosting purchase.




Before you make your payment, I suggest that you scroll up and verify all of the information once again.


By default, you will see the option to make payment via credit card only, but if you want to make payment via PayPal, click on “more payment options” and it will reveal the pay by PayPal option as well.


After making payment, you will see another sales page like the one below.


Hosting Payment Confirmation

Ignore this.


Click on “no thanks” at the end of the page.


On the next page, you will see a confirmation of your hosting package purchase, and you will see a screen like the one below.


Click on “create your password”.

Step 5: Select a password.


This is the final stage of your web hosting purchase.


You can choose a password, or you can use a password generator to create a complex password (which I recommend). Copy and paste the password in a safe place, and click on “Paste”.


Click on “Create”, and that’s it!


Create Bluehost Password


Now the process of buying web hosting for your blog is 98% complete.


Step 6: Log into your web hosting cPanel.


Check your email inbox, and you will find a confirmation email with all of the login information for your web hosting account. The only thing that will not be included in the email is the password you created in the last step — this is for your security.


FTP information

Go to, and click on “login” at the top.


In the login field, type your domain name or username and the password which you have chosen or generated.


Click “submit”.


Bluehost Login


You will now be inside of your Bluehost Dashboard which is optimized for WordPress:

That’s it! Congratulations! You have just purchased your web hosting package and domain name.
