How to purchase hosting, domain name, and 1-click install Word Press from Lithium Hosting¶
Step 1:Register @ Lithium Hosting¶
To begin, go to the lithumhosting website.
We will then click the register button as shown above.
After registering go ahead and login.
Step 2: Finding a Domain name and registering¶
We will now look for a domain name. Pick a name that is directly related to your project, because this will be the name that others will insert to reach your website. Another site to check whether or not your site name is taken is, http://www.whois.net/.
We first have to click on products which is on the menu bar. This will give us the option of clicking on Shared Hosting
We can now proceed to lookup a domain place that has not been taken. Once you have found a domain name that is available and to your liking proceed to the checkout.
Step 3: Confirmation Email and cpanel¶
You will now receive an email from lithium hosting confirming that you have purchased this domain name.
This email is important, it contains the password for the domain name you have just created.
You should next go www.(the domain name you choose).com/cpanel
You will be asked for your username and password here.After entering it you can proceed to your cpanel(Where you will manage(need a better word) your website).
If the screen shot above looks like the page you are at, you are doing great!
