Here are the basic instruction you can use to setup your very own Hostgator Hosting and then continue on to install WordPress to make your very own website! If you use my affiliate link below, you receive a discount and Hostgator offers their very own support chat and 24/7 phone support for any questions you might have.

  1. Go to Hostgator.com to search and purchase your domain name.
  2. Select the Baby Plan (more than enough room for multiple websites)
  3. Type in your domain name
  4. Decide on your billing cycle, I wouldn’t pay for more than 1 year at a time in the drop-down.
  5. Fill out the payment info and email information.
  6. ALERT! Uncheck all of the boxes regarding “Add SiteLock”, “Add CodeGuard”, “Add Search Engine Visibility”. These options all charge you for things you don’t need!
  7. Type in coupon code meganleigh to get $10.00 off your first month’s hosting to pay only .01 for the entire first month.
  8. Hit Create Account
  9. Right after you are finished it will automatically send you a “Welcome” Email (this email will have a bunch of weird looking logins and numbers and letters everywhere) and all you need to do is forward me this email and keep a copy of the information for your records.
  10. I’ll take care of the rest!
