I will discuss here about the first step towards creating your blog, i.e buying your domain and hosting plan for your website. There are tons of hosting providers but i prefer HostGator because it has a very good customer care and also up time and they provide good services all around the world. So, lets start.
Go to a http://hostgator.com and select or click on Web Hosting on the upper left of the screen.
Select Baby Plan for unlimited domain hosting. For single domain hosting select Hatchling Plan.
Enter your Domain Name. Domain name must be unique and its the name a person should enter in the address bar of a browser to navigate to your website. My domain name is addictedblogging.com. For example i have entered crunchybloggers.com.
Scroll down and choose a hosting plan. Give a username and security pin as required.
Again Scroll down enter the billing details and payment details. You can pay either by credit card or PayPal. The section credit card also accepts debit or ATM cards. So, in case you don’t have a credit card you can pay by debit card.
Next Up you will be prompted with this additional services screen. I will recommend deactivating them all if you don;t need them.
Next scroll down a bit and the couple code and review screen will follow. You are getting 1 year subscription of 1 domain ( crunchyblogger.com here) and 1 month subscription of hosting plan for $15.55 or Rs 1038 Indian Rupee.
When you apply this coupon code debakalpahostgator you do not have to pay for the domain and you get the domain for 1 year absolutely free. So you are getting the same thing for $12.96 or Rs 865.54 Indian Rupee. Moreover guys i will get a small commission for every domain and hosting registration. So guys try it out.
Next Out tick the terms of service check out box and go for check out. After successful payout you will get a mail in the registered mail id. The mail id you have used in the billing info.
You have successfully completed the first step i.e, buying domain and hosting space from HostGator .Go to control panel link and login with your username and password..
