How to Buy a Domain and Web Hosting from SiteGround
This is a step by step guide with pictures on how to set up domain registration and web hosting services through SiteGround, a popular domain registration and web hosting company. This page is a work in progress so I will add to it when I have more time. If you want to know how to set up domain and web hosting through other popular web hosting sites, I have step by step guides with pictures here for Zuver and here for Bluehost. Refer to Essential Tips for Choosing your Domain Name which includes a checklist on things to look out for when creating a domain name.
Please note that this page has some affiliate links. This means I get a referral fee when you click on it.
Go to SiteGround’s site or click here. Go to “Hosting” and click on “Web hosting”
Choose a plan and click on “GET STARTED” underneath the plan
Enter a domain then click “Proceed”
If it is unavailable, it will give you suggestions. Click a domain name that you like and click “Proceed” or enter a new domain and click “Proceed”.
Sign up by filling in your personal information, domain registrant (whoever is the owner of the domain) and payment details
Choose the period you want to purchase hosting for – you can even try it out for 1 month (for AUD$4.95) but it will cost you a setup fee of AUD $14.95. Choose any add-ons such as Domain Privacy.
