Buying your Hosting and Domain
1 Head over to hostgator.com and click on the GET STARTED NOW button.
2 Scroll down and choose the plan most suitable to you.
Ensure you choose the length of time you would like to buy the hosting for. (In this tutorial, we will be choosing 1 year of the hatchling plan to keep the costs low). Click the SIGN UP NOW button under your plan of choice and it will take you to the next screen.
3 Here is where you can choose your domain name and find out whether it is available.
Enter your domain name and click the Register a New Domain button.
This will let you know if your name of choice is available and give you pricing options.
Add your billing info and be sure to uncheck all the ‘additional services’ if you want to stick to the $80.55.
4 At Step 5 you will be asked to enter a coupon code. The word snappy is already in there…delete this.
Now enter the code GATORBARGAIN25 which entitles you to a 25% discount instead of the normal 20%.
5Agree to the Terms of Service, hit the CHECKOUT NOW! button and you are finished with STEP ONE.
