Step 3: Select a plan that fits best your needs.

I would start with Web Warp to create unlimited websites. Even if you just start blogging as a hobby or want to go into the blog flipping world, this plan is good for long-term investment.

Step 4: Register your domain name which is absolutely free for the first year.

If you already bought domains from Namecheap or Godaddy… you can choose “I will use my existing domain and update my nameservers”

Step 5: Choose billing cycle

I would recommend 36 months to take all benefits of 70% discount (for the first payment only)

Checkout using your preferred method of payment (you can use a Credit Card or PayPal).
