Once you have selected the hosting plan you will be directed to another page which allows you to add a domain to your hosting plan. Bluehost provides a free domain for any hosting plan you’ll choose to sign up for.

If you already have the domain name ready you can add it in that page then click next otherwise you can also add it later if you’re not decided on the domain name.

After completing the domain stage you will be directed to a final page where you’ll add your account information like name, address.

On this final page you will also be able to choose the duration of the plan you want to purchase which is the Package Information(it ranges from 1 to 3 years) and package extras. I normally go for the 1 year package and in the package extra I uncheck the SiteLock security extra.
