    I think all popular web hosting providers integrate this one click install feature to attract people. This is really simple to use. But people should take few things before installing like 1) directory name should be empty or blog if want a separate blog folder
    2) user name should be anything other than admin
    3) choose the email address you access frequently

    Bluehost India is different than the Bluehost US, and also they have different offers. Bluehost is mostly suggested by many top bloggers and looks like the best-shared hosting to begin a blog. I have no difficulty Bluehost one of the best and most successful web hosting services. It has hardly negative customer reviews. I accept that BlueHost is one of many affordable hosting for WordPress and it’s good enough for the value. Bluehost provides a lot of user-friendly features that attract the new users. For BlogSpot users I would tell them, Blogger is a hosted account and WordPress is non-hosted. You will need to upgrade your account. Along with the web hosting, you can have a free domain from Bluehost. But you require checking the availability of the domain name which you are currently using. Also note that, bluehost[.]com don’t accept debit card; you can pay via credit card or PayPal.

    I should thank you for encouraging us newbies with such detailed articles, one quick question; I have a website hosted by another company. They set up a WordPress blog for me which is linked to my website. However, it is a trimmed down version of WordPress which cannot accept plugins and other WordPress functionality. I want to set up a full WordPress Blog to replace the existing one, but I am unsure whether I should (or Can) use the existing domain when there is a blog with that name already. Any suggestions?

    Anyways, this is very useful because all beginners prefer tutorials to study about it. So it plays a crucial role among them. This information will be helpful for the wp beginners who even don’t know how to install wp. Good job, Keep it up.
