Under “Package Information” choose your “Account Plan” from the dropdown menu based on how far in advance you want to pay. I suggest include “Domain Whois Privacy” which will keep your personal information private.

    毛毛妈,这个文章很帮到我,我正在研究用哪个HOSTING又不贵,又好用(reliable)。想确认下是不是您每个月用WORDPRESS+BLUEHOST 一共就是上面看到的¥6.95(before tax)呀?还是还有其他费用呢?

    谢谢!!
