Your first step is to click here to visit the special Hostgator deal page to get your hosting for $3 per month and less that if you pay for more than one year.
When you get to this page, click the “Get Started” button.
If you’ve entered a new domain on the previous step you should see a success message that indicates that the domain name you selected is available.
Now you can enter your account information for your new account in the appropriate fields.
With Hostgator, you get a FREE Domain name for a year with any plan you choose.
Next step is choosing a Domain name you want to register for FREE or use an existing one you have with your hosting account.
Just choose if you want to get a FREE Domain or use an existing one.
And the next step is picking the hosting plan that serves your present need. Once again, don’t choose the Hacthling Plan if you wish to host more than a website or blog on your hosting account.
You also need to register a username and Support PIN.
Here is where you can choose an additional option that you might need. These options may vary depending on which plan you selected when you started.
A recommending add-on is the Office 365 Email Service that you can use to setup your own personalized email address.
Review your order and click the “Checkout” button below to checkout and pay for your hosting account.
After completing payment to Hostgator and receiving your new account information the next step is to request Authors Crib to complete your WordPress setup.
Simply click here to visit the FREE Author Blog setup request form and we’ll get to work!
*Note – If you prefer to go the DIY route and handle all of the initial setup yourself that is fine. However, if you want to receive the Authors Crib after setup support, you will still need to fill out the form. Just make sure to select the option to indicate you don’t require setup help.
