    Recommended platform for features I'm looking for?

    Hello, was wondering if someone could suggest what platform I should look at to create this type of website. It is very simple. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

    Key features:
    - Single page blog with menu bar at the top
    - Menu bar at top of website with the ability to track/sort each video in the blog post by most viewed, most commented, recently added.
    - Option for account creation so users can sign up with an email
    - Option to assign admins and moderators eventually once I have a big enough user base and content library
    - Comment section for the blog post similar to how youtube does it, with thumbs up and thumbs down, most relevant comments at the top etc.

    Also just for reference, I have no domain or logo. I'm more just trying to understand what it will take to set something like this up. I do have 12 month basic web hosting plan with bluehost, but no active website.

    I'm new to web design so like I said earlier any suggestions would be awesome. Even if you can point me in the direction where I can do some more research on this, or what platforms I should look at, I would be forever grateful

    Bluehost and most shared webhosts have a variety of scripts they will load and install automatically. Things like WordPress, Woo Commerce, Drupal. They also have some forums and blogs you can have installed. You then use their online editor to work with them.

    Look around on the Bluehost website and see what automatic installs you can use. I'm not sure which is the best, but you can do some research and even email them with questions. You have a webhosting account with them and a domain name? They support their customers really well, so they will help you out any way you need.
