If you have future endeavours of designing a site (not hosting now), you may want to obtain a domain name before
that. The reason for this is the internet is growing at a rapid pace. The name can be taken by someone else (which
happens a lot) and then you will have to sacrifice or improvise. You do not need hosting if you only want to buy a
domain name. When you choose this option, ask your webhost administrator to ‘Park the Domain’ until you are ready to
Signing Up for Web Hosting:
Web hosting companies can be easy to work with, or they can be a nightmare. Use tried and trusted hosting, like
Some hosting resellers will offer a downgraded package for almost the same price as normal hosting, plus
you don’t get any extras when choosing these packages. All extras are available at extra cost.
Reseller hosting is when you ‘hire’ for instance 10GB of disk space on a webserver, then reselling it. This is however a good income if
used properly and with some initiative (assembling websites for a living), but some resellers charge simply too much! The downside
with these packages is you may not receive a database to use, and the database will be added for you if you pay extra. This is a
waste of money honestly. Emails are limited etc.

When the transaction is completed, you will receive documentation from the webhost that includes:
Hosting account details
cPanel Log-In information
FTP information etc.
Some hosting companies may send you different information, but it should be in line with the above. Keep this
information (probably emails) safe and secure, only for use by authorised persons.
When you have the following, you can proceed to upload the website to the host:
Domain Name; and
Web Hosting with cPanel.
If any of the information is unclear to you at this point, kindly contact your new webhost for support. These people work
hard in gaining customer satisfaction, so you will be in good hands.
The new website will take some time to propagate. It’s normally between 24-48 hours. This need to be done to check if
there are any contradicting info, like someone else that has already obtain the domain name you want to use etc. So if
you don’t see the website immediately after signing up, please note that this is normal! However, you will be able to
access the cPanel of the website on a temporary server until the process is finalised. IMHO, wait until all is good and then
proceed uploading your files.
