Trying to wade through the ocean of hosting companies on the Internet to find the gem that you want for your website can be a real pain. With so many of these companies setting up shop overseas, there are some out there that can take your money and deliver little in return.
They give you poor service with too much downtime, customer service representatives who don’t care about the company’s reputation (or your website) and fees that keep going up. This will show you the difference one company can make in helping entrepreneurs with reliable hosting options.
Located in Los Angeles & Virginia Beach, this company has proven over the years it’s been in business that they look out for their customers. With their 99.9% uptime, the management with InMotion Hosting knows what it takes to keep customers happy.
They’ve also streamlined the hosting process so that you don’t have to have your websites scattered with various hosting companies. They can handle everything you have and they give you unlimited space and unlimited domain hosting with most plans.
Three of their plans are the Launch Plan, the Power Plan, and the Pro Plan. Most new businesses – especially Internet marketers just learning the ropes, choose to go with the Launch Plan, which does effectively meet their initial needs.
With the first one, you can get set up for only $5.99 a month if you pay for service for two years at a time. If that’s too long for you, then paying for it by the year is only $6.99 for the twelve months.
With the purchase of your hosting accounts, you will receive a free (.com) domain. Before you register a domain I’d recommend thinking about the name you chose. Starting with a good domain is very important.
Once you have found the best name for your business/project the next step is to register your domain and sign up for hosting. When you go to www.MyHostLink.com you will see that you land on the business hosting page.
The package that you need to sign up for (for starters only) is “Launch”. Click on “Order Now” & then chose the registration duration (1 or 2 years) It will break down to what it would cost monthly but you are required to pay in advance.
For 1 year it will cost about $85 & 2 years will cost about $150. (Prices are subject to change.)
Once you chose what duration period you want it will take you to the checkout page. There is a good possibility that you will get a pop-up for an upsell. You do not need this at this moment so you can just click on “No Thanks”.
Chose your Data Center – If they have availability for multiple servers at the time you sign up you will see multiple options for your data center. If you see the options, just chose the data center closest to you.
Do not install WordPress here. We are going to do this later so we can customize our advanced settings. So keep this section set to “No, Thanks” Click on “Continue”.
Enter in the domain you want to purchase on the next page and click search to start the process. Once you see the success message “Great news, thedomainyouwanted.com is available!” click on “Add to Cart” & then click on “Continue”
The next section is for “Domain Privacy Registration”. I highly recommend that you keep the privacy registration setting on. For only about $10/year this will keep your information private so that people can’t do a “WHOIS” reverse search to find your phone number, email address, mailing address, etc. Click on “Continue”
Once you have done that you will need to create a new account. Under “New Customer” please enter your email address & click continue.
On the next page fill out your information to create your account and complete the purchase. Now click “Continue”
Once you get to the “Review Your Order” page, please be sure to go over all of the information. Then you need to click “I Agree” on the bottom of the page to agree to the purchase & Terms of Service. Then click on “Checkout”
Now you have completed the process to register your domain name and have signed up for hosting. The next thing you need to do is check your email account for an email from InMotion Hosting to set your password & verify your account. Please follow those emails and complete this step.
