Free Domain Policy
If your hosting plan comes with a free domain through Bluehost and you cancel within the first year, please note there is a non-refundable domain fee based on the regular cost of the domain, which can be found in your control panel, plus any applicable fees, for the domain name. The fee not only covers our own costs, but it ensures that, even if you’re dissatisfied with your experience at Bluehost, you won’t lose your domain name. Upon payment of the domain fee, you’ll be free to transfer it or simply point it elsewhere. Please note, however, that newly registered domains cannot be transferred to another registrar during the first 60 days of the registration period. If you elect to renew your domain name, you will retain ownership of the domain name until the end of its registration period.
Bluehost makes it easy to transfer an existing domain to your Bluehost account. Within your cPanel you will navigate to the domain management section and follow the on-screen instructions to begin your domain transfer. If you need any assistance, please contact our customer support team and we will be happy to help you.

Web Hosting is the most basic type of hosting. It's a cost-effective option for small websites that don't require a lot of resources. With Web Hosting, your website shares space on a server with other websites. This means that your website's performance may be affected by the performance of the other websites on the server.
Dedicated hosting is a more expensive option than Web Hosting. With dedicated hosting, you have your own server that isn't shared with any other websites. This means that you have complete control over the server and its resources. Dedicated hosting is a good option for large websites or websites that require a lot of resources.
VPS hosting is a middle ground between Web Hosting and dedicated hosting. With VPS hosting, you have your own virtual server that isn't shared with any other websites. However, you don't have complete control over the server as you would with dedicated hosting. VPS hosting is a good option for websites that need more resources than Web Hosting can offer, but don't need the full resources of a dedicated server.
Yes, you need hosting for a WordPress site. WordPress is a content management system (CMS) that allows you to create and manage a website without any coding knowledge. However, WordPress is just software. In order to make your WordPress site accessible to the public, you need to host it on a web server. This is where WordPress Hosting from Bluehost comes in.
You can buy hosting without a domain. However, you won't be able to make your website accessible to the public without a domain. A domain is the address of your website on the internet. Without a domain, your website will only be accessible to you and people who have the IP address of your server. You can learn more about web hosting on our blog.
