along with the Hostgator coupon code for the up to 60% off offer. The promo code is CUPID60. A little disclosure, the link is an affiliate
link. I’ll receive a commission which helps support
this channel and helps us put out WordPress tutorial videos on a regular basis. Feel free to click the Hostgator link in the
description to walk through the steps with me to buy a domain name from Hostgator. Once you click the link you will see Hostgator’s
web hosting page like you see here. Keep in mind Hostgator does change their landing
page quite often so if it looks different don’t worry. The remaining steps after this stay the same. There are two ways to purchase your domain
name from Hostgator. The first way is to get hosting and your domain
name at a discount with Hostgator. The second way is to just purchase the domain
name with Hostgator and pay full price for the domain name. I’m going to cover both ways. First, lets cover if you are going to be buying
a domain name along with Hostgator hosting. You’ll see the get started button on the Hostgator
page. Click the button. You’ll now be on the Hostgator plans page. You will see three different plans you can
choose from. The Hatchling plan, the baby plan, and the
business plan. The plan I recommend going with is the Hatchling
plan. You can have one domain name with this plan. You can always scale up to one of the other
two plans if you need too. If you have more than one website you will
want to go with the baby plan as this includes unlimited domains. Go ahead and select the hosting plan you want
by clicking the sign up now button. You will now be on a page where you want to
choose your domain name. Type in the domain you would like to use along
with the domain extension for example .com, .net, .org, etc. I recommend going with a .com if you can as
this is the most common domain extension. If you already have a domain name just click
on the I already own this domain and put in your domain name. When you select your domain name to buy Hostgator
will say if it is available or not. If it’s available it’ll say available. If it says unavailable it will say unavailable
like you see here. If your domain is unavailable trying adding
the, a hyphen, or changing your domain extension. You will see domain privacy being selected
for your domain name purchase. It’s completely up to you whether you go with
this addon or not. Domain privacy protects your personal information. It’s very common without this selected telemarketers
and spammers will call and email you quite often. If you go with domain privacy Hostgator’s
default contact information will show so you won’t have to worry about spammers. Once you decide on that we want to choose
our hosting plan. Just make sure the package type is the correct
plan you want. Next you want to choose the billing cycle. You can choose to pay monthly, every 3 months,
6 months, 12 months, 24 months, and 36 months. You will see you will save the most money
the farther out you purchase your Hostgator hosting for. I’m going to show you how to get hosting even
cheaper than what is listed in just a second. Next, you want to enter your username. Pick anything you would like. Next just enter your 4 digit pin. Make sure to remember this as this is used
when you need to talk to Hostgator support. Next you want to enter your billing information. Over on the right hand side you will see where
you can put in your card information or you can pay via a Paypal account. After you input this infromation go to the
next section where you can add additional services if you would like too. Next, you will see https SSL Certifcates. This is a free Hostgator addon and it makes
your site secure and all sites should have an SSL Certificate. You will see protect your site from hackers. This addon monitors your site and lets you
know if a hackers gets into your site and places a virus or malware to your site. Next, you will see get professional email
from Google. I’d unselect this as you get free email accounts
with your Hostgator hosting. Select this only if you’d prefer to do it
via Google. Next, you will see back up your hard work. This will create a backup of your site. This can come in handy if you make a mistake
or something happens with your site you can with a click of a button backup your site
to a recent previous version. Next, you will see improve your search rankings. I’d recommend you unselect this as this just
gives you insights into your site and rankings. All of these add-ons are completely optional
and up to you to get. You can always upgrade to an addon at any
time. Next, you will be at the enter coupon code
section. You will see a Hostgator promo code automatically
entered. Keep this coupon code if you are purchasing
your plan for 24 months or greater to get maximum discount even with your Hostgator
domain name purchase. Replace the promo code that is there with
CUPID60 to get the greater discount for monthly plans up to paying for a 12-month term. This will also bring your domain name purchase
down to $4.99 for the first year instead of the full price of $12.95. Now, just scroll down and accept the terms
and conditions and click the checkout now button. You will now be directed to a thank you page. Hostgator will now email you your Hostgator
receipt and your Hostgator CPanel login credentials. Now let’s go over buying a domain name from
Hostgator without purchasing their hosting. From the Hostgator home page you will see
the domains tab at the top. Click this. You can now search for a domain name that
you would like to have. It’ll let you know if it is available or not. If it’s available it will let you know. If it’s unavailable it will let you know. Try adding a the, a hyphen or using a different
domain extension if the domain you want is unavailable. You will see the domain privacy addon selected. You can keep this selected or unselected. It’s completely up to you. As mentioned earlier in the video the domain
privacy protects your personal information and protects you from spammers and telemarketers
getting your information. With domain privacy selected Hostgator will
show its default contact information instead of yours. I highly recommend this addon. Next, click the continue to checkout button
over to the right. You want to create a Hostgator account now
or enter your current Hostgator login information. Once your account is created or you login
you want to enter your payment information. Next, review your order summary and that is
all. And that is how to buy domain name from Hostgator. Alright guys, thanks for watching. I hope you enjoyed this Hostgator domain name
