Ever wondered how to install WordPress with Bluehost? If you’ve made your decision to try using WordPress, we recommend hosting your WordPress site with Bluehost.
Using WordPress.org is different than using drag and drop website builders, as you will have to subscribe to your own hosting services, whereas drag and drop website builders provide hosting for you already.
Again there are pros and cons to using WordPress or drag and drop website builders, and we’ve gone over the comparisons in the articles here.
The key points to keep in mind is that drag and drop builders (such as Squarespace, Weebly, Wix, etc) are much easier to use, but they are not as flexible as what WordPress can potentially do for you.
But WordPress does have a much higher learning curve and so you will have to invest a lot more time to learn how to use it proficiently, and you may have to hire some professional WordPress developers to help you set up more advanced features (such as customizing your design, adding custom interfaces, etc).
So to use WordPress, you need to invest time, and potentially financial resources. But the outcome, if you are willing to make those investments, is a great website management system to help you further support your business.
