STEP 1 - DOMAIN NAME AND HOSTING
Hosting is where your website is physically stored and the domain name is the address used to find it online. You must have both of these to set up your website.
You can register both your web hosting and domain name with Siteground.
Siteground offer good value pricing, technical quality and great support. They also offers 1 click install for WordPress, which makes installing Wordpress in step 2 much quicker. Click the button below to register your domain name and web hosting with Siteground.
In the Siteground signup options;
- You can create the account with a new FREE domain, or use one you have registered previously.
- The Siteground starter plan is enough for most websites and costs $3.95 a month. If you want to create multiple websites for a 2nd business, friends or clients you will need the Grow Big option.
- Pick the data center (USA, Europe or Singapore) that is closest to the users who will be viewing your website.
- HackAlert notifies you if your website has been hacked or injected with malicious code, and whilst not essential, for $12 is a good warning tool to have.
