Stefan with ClickHOST here and today I’m going to show you how to sign up for a hosting account. Now the process is quite simple, you can say it’s Simple, Honest, and Safe. To start off we’re just going to press the sign-up button here. Then let’s go ahead and select the better hosting plan. Now since you’ve bought the hosting now you just need to buy domain name to point to that hosting. You can either register a new domain with us, transfer your old domain name from another registrar to ClickHOST, or update the name servers on your existing domain name to point to ClickHOST.
So I’m just going to walk you through the process of registering a brand-new domain name. I will register ours as www.stefanisthebestteacherever.com. Then to proceeded click continue. Great, this domain name is available-so it must be true. As you can see we can register this domain name under multiple extensions at same time. For this example, however, I’m just going stick with the .com. Click continue.
Great, you can see we’ve ordered our better hosting plan. For our billing cycle I’m gonna go ahead and do the 24 month option. You can see it gets cheaper the longer stick with us. That also means that you prepay ahead for this service. You can also add the Malware/Hacking cleaning service that usually only comes with the BEST plan. This will be $3.50 monthly but it’s definitely here to give you more peace of mind. With this you can make sure that your website is safe.
You can also purchase website transfer assistance. If you’re moving your website from another hosting provider you can buy this from us so that we can go through this process for you saving you any headache. Obviously, with me being the cyber-tech guru, I don’t need this option. Now we have two options here for your domain name. In order to host a domain name, we do need your name and your address. This information becomes attached to your domain name to ensure that nobody else can buy your domain name. Appropriately, with the Domain Contact Privacy Protection we can make sure that your information is only between you and ClickHOST. The Domain Host Record Management is just in case you want to manage the DNS records attached your domain name. Now select update cart to continue shopping. Accordingly, you can see the amount to prepay for reposting plan for two years and down here is the annual price for your domain name. If you have a promotional code feel free to type it in here. Now, if you’re happy with the above just select checkout.
Thusly, this window will drop down. What we need from you is some information. We would like to know who you are and where you live so that we can register your domain name. We also need your email address, of course. Remember ClickHost would never share information with anybody. Once you filled out the necessary information, scroll down to select your payment method. You can use PayPal or credit card. This information is relayed to us securely as possible. There’s no need for worry there. After filling out your payment information, and you are satisfied all of the above is correct, select complete order.
