Quick Recap

  • there are tons of good hosting options, just choose one and move on
  • Siteground offers great customer service and support
  • you can always upgrade or change plans later


Pick a website host and walk through the process of creating an account. If you’re using WordPress, which we recommend, you can choose to go with a WordPress hosting plan.

When you pick a host, you can also register your domain at the same time. It’s easy to do it this way and keep your domain and hosting together with the same company, though you can also register your domain somewhere else, like GoDaddy.

But in general, just keep it easy and register your domain wherever you’re hosting your blog.
