Some are even asking me to help them order for the hosting myself, while the sent the money to me. Well, the truth is that it won’t be possible.
Why? because Bluehost require every account having its own unique billing card and address, for future billing in case your if the hosting period you paid for is due for renewing.
So, since you will have to order for the hosting account yourself, i will walk you through the step by step process to getting a hosting account from Bluehost.
