How To Obtain A Web Host Service

How To Obtain A Web Host Service

A web host is a service provider t

hat places your web site on a computer

which is connected to the internet. T

his then gives people who surf the

internet a way to access your we

bsite. A web host will typically have a

fast connection to the Internet and they may host thousands of web sites

on many servers. The web ho

st essentially rents out space to you so

that you can get your website up on the world wide web. For me, I have chosen to use due to its effi

cient service, and

cheap rates.

Signing up at Hostgator is re

latively easy. However, you will come to a

page which requires you to selec

t your billing cycle and your coupon

code for further discounts.

If you want to try them for $0.01 for 1 month,

use the coupon code


. I have selected 12-months with a

20% discount coupon because

it will be cheaper that way since I will be

with them for a long time.

How To Get Your Discount Coupon:

You just need to Google Search “HostGator Coupon” and click on the

links to find a discount coup

on that best suits your needs. Do take time

to explore as there are quite a number of coupons that you can utilise to

help lower your startup costs.

– Decide which directory you want your site to be installed in. I recommend installing in the root directory

unless you already have a site using your main domain URL. If

you want to install in the root directory, leave this option blank.

#2 & 3 Admin access data

– Create a username and password

to prove that you have access to the data. Don’t worry toomuch as you can create additional users later.

#4 Admin nickname

– Nothing important, just key in a

nickname which you feel like.

#5 Site name

– What you want your site to be called.

#6 Description

– A short description to describe your site. It

may or may not appear in the header, depending on the theme

which you use.

followed by “Finish Installation” in the next page. And there you

have it, you have finished installing wordpress to your site. Just

head over to “” to login and

work on your blog
