a 12 month option so you can avoid the setup fee and save some money by doing
so next extra services if you already own your domain name two of the options
regarding the domain name will not show up if you registered your domain name
with sight ground you will see the domain registration fee the main privacy
I highly recommend as this will keep your personal contact information safe
so that your personal information is not out for everyone to get access to by
choosing this your information will show site grounds information instead of
yours without domain privacy more than likely you will get a good bit of
telemarketers and marketers bugging you trying to sell all their services to you
next SG site scanner this plugin will scan
your site daily to see if there is any malware on your site or if you’ve been
hacked it’ll let you know
