I believe you have already bought a domain name if not then go through my post about best Domain name registrar. To publish your website on internet, you need space on server, where you can upload your website or in other terms, you need web host account to host your website.
Select your web host carefully, There are many factors which you can check out before trying any webhosting service, some of them are response time, stability and bandwidth. There are many webhosting companies offering cheap and low price services but I would say before trying do a complete research about their performance and uptime.
I preferred hostgator as my webhost after doing a complete research on all popular webhosting service providers and I find it good. I like it’s cpanel feature and their support.
The following steps will show you how to set up a web host account with Hostgator
1) Go to www.Hostgator.com and click “View Web Hosting Plans”. The plans will appear as follows:
You can choose “Hatchling plan”, if you only need web hosting for one domain since it is the cheapest plan among all three plans. The other two hosting plans are the “Baby Plan” and the “Business Plan”. The main reason these plans are more expensive is because, they provide hosting for an unlimited number of domains. Select your desired billing cycle using dropdown list at each plan. If you want to try their service before spending any money then you can choose first month free hosting coupon. Also if you are planning to register for 1 or more than 1 year then alsoyou have some discount coupons. you can find all the discount coupons at free hostgator coupon code.
2) After selecting your webhosting plan and desired billing cycle you can click “ORDER NOW”, next screen would appear as shown below-
Enter domain name here, if you have registered it already with some other domain registrar. you can also register domain name here..It is up to you. I would recommend choose “Godaddy” for domain and “hostgator” for webhosting. you can also refer my post best domain registrars to find out the comparison among best domain registrars.
3) Fill out the information for your account and billing method and complete the registartion process. That’s it you are done. Hostgator will send you an email message with your account information, once your account has been processed. You will need this information later to configure your domain.
This completes the setup of your web host account. If you have any questions regarding this then please drop a comment below. I would love to answer.
