Only use reputable companies.HostGator.comI recommend selecting the ‘Baby’ plan because you can add more domains than just one to yourhosting account.NotesFromKris@gmail.com - (678) 386-8195
  2. 2. Once you have gone through the billing process above, you will receive an email with the hostinglogin information. Since you have purchased a domain with this hosting plan, you will not haveto worry about pointing the domain name to the hosting server. They take care of that for you.NotesFromKris@gmail.com - (678) 386-8195
  3. 3. Log in and find this section of your cPanel interface:Select ‘Fantastico De Luxe’.Select WordPress, then ‘New Installation’ in the WordPress box on the right.You will be prompted with a pull-down box asking you where you want to install WordPress.NotesFromKris@gmail.com - (678) 386-8195
