On the next screen click on Start in-front of  Wordpress installation pop-up. This will lead you to next page where you can make many changes.

On the next page there are three options, carefully examine all the options. The major one isoption 1 and option 2.

Option 1.



In this step you can select how do you want your blog to look like. You can make it look like
  • www.yourdomain.com or
  • http://yourdomain.com
I recommend to choose without www, as it’s short and shorter the URL, better it is.

Option 2.



In this step you can select your WordPress username and password for your   login. Make sure you don’t select admin as username. Instead use some random username and use complex password. Also keep a check mark on Automatic create a database.

On the next page it will start installing WordPress. Don’t close the page until unless it shows Processing complete. It it gives error saying “Oops! Directory exists! Are you sure you want to overwrite its contents”,  select the checkbox infront of “Directory exists! I understand that continuing will overwrite files.”, and deselect everything in Step 3, and click on complete. It will take not more than 1 minute for bluehost WordPress script to install WordPress blog on your newly bought Bluehost server. An Email will be sent to the registered Email address about the login and password. Which you can use to login to your WordPress dashboard.
That’s it and now you can move ahead and get started with the other set up.
