I think one and 1.com offers the best prices on domain names and i have a link in the description that will get you 99 cents for your first year including privacy protection.
However i think hostgator is the best hosting provider on the internet and I speak from experience as I’ve been with them for over three years now and they have great customer service and my websites have always been up and running which is what you want. So if you haven’t purchased hostgator hosting i have two coupons in the descriptions well one will get you twenty five percent off the other will get you nine dollars and ninety-four cents off. You can only use one so please use whichever one will get you the biggest discount if you are installing wordpress please stick around to the end of the video because I brief tutorial it only takes a minute of how to get a wordpress installed on your hostgator hosting once you get your one and 1.com / to it so let’s go ahead and get started so once you purchase your domain on 11 calm and go ahead and click login I’ll once you’re logged in you want to go to your domains hit manage I have it highlighted right here and then you’re going to want to find your domain name that you’re moving over to hostgator hosting verify its correct and then go ahead and click edit dns a that will bring you to its next screen right here where you’re going to want to change this option from 11 default to custom.
