Still here? Great! You're now on the 2nd step of creating your first website.

Once you have registered your domain name you're ready to find a web host.

A web host is where all the magic happens, as the saying goes. This is where you get your email addresses, install any scripts (WordPress, forum, shopping cart, etc.) and more.

You can't actually launch your site until you sign up with a hosting account.

This is the most important decision you'll make for your site. Make sure you pay attention to the tips below so you choose a host that is right for your needs.

WordPress is the most popular website creation platform used today and you can create almost any kind of site you want to with WordPress.

I can guarantee you that no other host is going to provide you with so much preliminary help and guidance.

Please don't forget that the book is on the thank you page immediately after you place your order.

Choosing The Type of Hosting

Website Palace has two kinds of hosting plans - regular and Website Builder.

The regular hosting is the most popular option. So if you wanted to create a WordPress site/blog, setup a forum, shopping cart and all the other common website features -- this is what you'd choose.

Now all you have to do is choose a plan.

The Economy plan is for one site, but the Deluxe and Ultimate plans will let you create unlimited sites with one hosting account.

The other hosting option at Website Palace is Website Builder. If you choose this hosting option, you will have access to a template builder. No software is needed. You just choose from thousands of templates, add your text, images, video and you're ready to go.

Even though this option is extremely easy and fast, I wouldn't recommend it for business websites or blogging. It's best for very simple, personal sites with mostly text and pictures.

Website Builder is not nearly as popular as it used to be. I would highly recommend going with the regular hosting plan because it's way more flexible if you decide to expand your site or add more features.

Plus, you cannot use WordPress with Website Builder so that's another drawback. You are very limited with your buiding options.

"Is That All I Need to Start?"

After you choose a hosting option and you have your domain name, all you do is login to your hosting account and you are ready to begin building your site!

Don't forget that you can add additional software add-ons, so if you want to have a forum, you can install the forum software right from your hosting account.

There are dozens of add-on applications you can install that come free with your hosting.

If you have any questions, you can call Website Palace at 480-624-2500. Support is always available to help! Yes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
