In this course, I will teach you how to buy a web hosting account. So if you’re new to buying web hosting or running your own website, this course will answer some nagging questions.
In the first part of this tutorial, I’m going to help you find the perfect web hosting service to meet your specific needs. The second part of this tutorial covers the process of purchasing it.
So let’s begin!
Choosing a Web Hosting Service
HostGator is the first web hosting company that I’m going to recommend. They provide excellent customer service, which is one of the most important factors you need to consider when looking for a web hosting company.
Proceed to ‘Web Hosting’ to check out HostGator’s different web hosting plans.
Start out with the most basic plan, which is called Hatchling Plan. This is ideal for those who want to host only a single domain name. However, if you wish to add multiple domains in the future, you can go for their Baby Plan.
Besides HostGator, there are many other way to find cheap web hosting. You can try out WebHostingTalk.com, an online community where many web hosting companies come together to provide cheaper deals on web hosting. Here, you’ll find anything from web hosting, web hosting offers, dedicated hosting offers, shared hosting offers, and so forth.
So if you’re looking to host a large website, you can save a lot of money by going to WebHostingTalk.com. Here, you can find a lot of web hosting companies that can host your site at an affordable price.
The next web hosting company on my list is ServInt. This is a great place to host an extremely large website or a large amount of sites in the future. Go to Hosting Solutions >> Flex VPS where you’ll find their web hosting plans.
The first plan, Essential VPS, is a great option if your site continues to grow to the point you want a faster server.
Registering a Web Hosting Account
If you go to HostGator and choose a hosting plan, you are given the option to either register a new domain or use an existing domain name.
Afterwards, you can choose which package type you wish to purchase, the billing cycle, username, and security PIN.
You will then enter your billing information.
You can also add additional services.
Enter a valid coupon code so you can save a few bucks on your purchase.
Once you’re done, you can review your order details and check out. You’re done!
