Having own Website is important for any business as every business have their own website but here we are talking about personally. As personal level to get your website or blog on internet it need two important things 1st is own domain and 2nd is hosting place to host you website.
I have had some comparatively unhealthy experiences with CrazyDomains and FastWebHost hosting services, and I have had some nice experiences with budget shared hosting corporations like Bluehost, iPage and Hostgator.
There are lots of Domain and Hosting provider services are worldwide. As domain and hosting are two different things, you can buy web hosting and domain from separately. But today you will get brief idea to get domain for free with your purchased hosting. Get step by step instructions to buy free domain with your web hosting.
Choose Domain Name
First find best domain online for your blog, there are lots of TLD now a days you can choose any of it as per availability. You find best domain for yourself by searching online. I will prefer to buy web hosting and domain name from same service provider as Bluehost provide both of services at budget price.
If you go with Bluehost or Hostgator you don’t have to buy website domain names separately you can get website domains free. Generally cost to buy domain name is $9.99 and it changes as per TLD. Your domain cost included with your hosting. You get a domain name cheap rate with hosting provider.
Buy Web Hosting
Fill in your account information and then scroll down to select your package. As you can see, the prices range from $3.95 to $5.95 per month. (Again, this is for the Plus Package.) It all depends on the length of your commitment.
- 12 months at $5.95 per month is $71.40 per year and $71.40 upfront.
- 24 months at $4.95 per month is $59.40 per year and $118.80 upfront.
- 36 months at $3.95 per month is $47.4 per year and $142.20 upfront.
I would not sign up for any of the other services listed on this screen, but that’s up to you.
Now enter your billing information. Confirm that you have read and agree with Bluehost’s Terms of Service, and then click on the Next button. The system will now verify your credit card information.
Bluehost will next ask you to “Select the Upgrades that Best Suit Your Needs.” I would skip all of these. Click the Complete button at the bottom of the page. Be patient. This may take a minute or two.
You should now see the “Welcome to Bluehost” screen, along with a “Congratulations” message. Now you need to choose a password for your account. Click on the Create your password button:
You should now be at the Control Panel, sometimes called the cPanel.
Don’t be intimidated by the number of buttons in this step—it’s amazingly simple. The process used to be complicated, and you had to be a semi-geek to pull it off. But Bluehost now makes it super-simple. Trust me, anyone can do this.
Scroll down the page to the “Website” section. Click on the Install WordPress logo and wait for the new page to load. Be patient. It might take a minute.
With bluehost website hosting now you have installed WordPress on your Domain name.
