How to Get Hosting and Domain

From the hosting page, the best option for your blog or website is the ‘Swift’ plan. Click the button “Get Swift”.

Now it’s time to enter your domain name that you came up with. Don’t have a domain idea? Get domain ideas

Once you’ve entered your available domain, and you get the confirmation that it is available you can click on ‘Continue’.

Then you will be redirected to the order summary page.

I know what you may be thinking, “WHOA! That’s a lot of money!” No worries we can fix that. Under the section on the left that says, ‘Billing Cycle’ change ’36 Month Price’ to ‘1 Month Price’. You will see the price drop substantially.

Discount Hosting and Domain

If you are planning on having your site for at least a year, paying for the yearly subscription will be the most cost-efficient, otherwise, the monthly plan will suffice. You’ll just end up paying more in the long run.

Now if you scroll down the bottom section you will see options about installing WordPress on the hosting plan.

Make sure under the ‘Auto-Install Application’ section, ‘WordPress – A2 Optimized’ is selected. You will also see your login credentials below that. Make sure to write those down because you will need them to log into your new WordPress site. Then click the continue button.
