Guide for HostGator web hosting sign up with maximum discount
First step for creating a blog or online portal begins with buying a domain & setting up website. For this you have to purchase a web hosting service. Beginners often find it difficult to understand the procedure but buying web hosting is a very easy task. You can start the procedure by selecting a hosting service.
If you are searching for a reliable hosting service, I will strongly suggest to go for HostGator. It is one of the best WordPress web hosting provider. This article describes step by step procedure for HostGator web hosting sign up.
In this article, I will be buying HostGator hatching plan for one year. But if you are serious about blogging & earning money then you should go for baby plan. Bandwidth & memory space offered by baby plan is good for newbie.
Go to HostGator homepage, & click on web hosting (see screenshots).
In this step, you have to choose your hosting plan & billing cycle. You should go for one or two year billing cycle to get maximum discount benefit. Then click on ‘ORDER NOW’ button.
In this step you have to choose from two options, which are register a new domain & already own this domain. If you already own a domain then select already own this domain option & write the domain name.
In case you don’t have one, you can buy one with HostGator (cost 15$). So select register a new domain option. Then enter domain name to check availability.
In this step, you have to confirm your hosting plan & billing cycle (duration of plan). Then choose a username & security pin (Ex-1234567) for your account.
Now in the billing section enter your name, address, contact detail & phone number. Give correct info, as you may receive verification call for security purpose.
Next, you have to select payment method: credit card & PayPal. In case you select PayPal, you will be redirected to PayPal payment page.
In this section you have to enter coupon code get maximum discount. Usually HostGator provides default coupon to offer 20% discount. Now enter SHHOSTGATOR25 to get 25% discount.
Next, you have to verify your order detail like hosting package & total due. Click to agree with term & condition.
Now click on the ‘CREATE ACCOUNT’. Depending on your mode of payment, you will be redirected to either PayPal payment page or credit card order page.
Soon HostGator will send you a confirmation email. Note the name server detail for future use. You will also get a call for verification purpose.
