On the next screen, select the domain name on which you wish to install WordPress software. You can decide if you want to use www, or you wish to have the domain without www. I would suggest skip www as this era is all about short URL. Is int it?

Bluehost Domain checking
If you have purchased your domain from Bluehost, it won’t be any issue. If your domain is purchased from elsewhere, you need to change the Name-server to

Ns1.bluehost.com

Ns2.bluehost.com

Here you can give your site a name, which you can change it later if you want to. For username and password, I suggest using any name as username instead of admin. Admin is default username for WordPress and security purpose, using admin is not suggested. Keep the checkbox at the part that says Automatically create a new database for this installation.
