How to Buy Hosting in GoDaddy (Beginners Guide) + Free Domain


Hey guys, welcome to the first episode of
GoDaddy WordPress series and in this video, you will learn how can buy webhosting from
GoDaddy. so this is going to be three minutes video in which you will learn everything you
need to know to buy webhosting and domain from GoDaddy and after this in the next video,
I’ll show you how you can install WordPress blog on GoDaddy. So I have added the link
to GoDaddy in the description which is a special discounted link. click on that and go to the
GoDaddy site, now once you are on the GoDaddy site, depending upon the location you are
in, you can select your currency so GoDaddy supports all the country, all the currency
and all the languages as well, so which is pretty good.
Now GoDaddy offers two different kind of hosting, one, they offer normal hosting which comes
with website builder and another one they offer is WordPress hosting. Now if you plan
to start a WordPress website, I would recommend go with their WordPress hosting. Now depending
upon your requirement, you can buy any webhosting but just to make it easier for you to pick,
if you need to build one WordPress site, I would recommend start with basic WordPress
site, it’s the cheapest and comes with the entire feature that you really need for your
WordPress site. In case you need to install more WordPress site, let’s say, 2 or 5,
you can select ultimate or developer hosting package according to your need. So in this
case, I’ll be buying a basic hosting package. now one thing which you need to know that
if you buy an annual hosting package, if you buy hosting for 12 months, you also get one
free domain name which makes your hosting much cheaper and in the next video, I’ll
show you how easy it is to install WordPress blog on GoDaddy and the extra features that
they offer, you will be completely blown. So me not kill the suspense and let’s go
ahead and click on ‘add to cart’. now this is very crucial as you need to select the
term for your hosting and this is very important because if you won’t select the right term,
there is hardly any discount coupon for renewal, so technically if you need to renew your hosting
after 12 months, you will be paying about 6.99$ and there will be no discounts, so if
you are looking to keep your website up and running for longer period, you can buy hosting
for 24 or 36, this is one strategy that you can follow right now to save money later on.
For this tutorial sake, I will keep it for 12 months. Now GoDaddy offers free domain
email address using Microsoft office365, so the first year is free, you can actually use
it right now or you can skip it. In my one of the tutorial, I will share how you can
create domain specific email address using zoho mail. So this is up to you, I personally
prefer, creating my domain email address using zoho mail because it makes it very easy to
configure. Apart from that GoDaddy offers add-on, so you can buy sitelock or you can
buy SSL certificate. now you should buy SSL certificate only when you are building an
e-commerce, you know if you are doing a transaction on your website, if it’s not required, just
keep this two part, you will save a lot of money. so click on continue, now this is a
section where you need to select your domain name, so just for the sake, let me type this
random domain name or GoDaddyvideoguides.com, click on search, so GoDaddy offers free domain
name on dotcomdotco.net and .org, so if this domain name is not available, let me try,
so once you are on this free domain page, you need to figure out which domain name you
want to buy, get a free domain name using dotcomdotco.net and .org extension. so let
me use something like pyuserstt and let’s see if this is available and this is available,
so I click on select and continue and this is what you need to do, so this is your check
out page and this is very important because this is where you will configure everything,
so you can select your domain for 2 years or 3 years depending upon your goal. Similarly
you can also change your hosting package tenure, you can buy it for 5 years, so very few hosting
companies which offer hosting for 5 years and GoDaddy is one of them. Now if you need
to hide your domain data like nobody should know who bought this domain, you need to buy
this particular thing. So I would recommend you can skip this but if you really want to
hide your identity online, you should buy this wiz guard, in my case, I will simply
click on keep my personal info public. similarly GoDaddy offer, do a lot of upselling despite
of the fact they are one of the best webhosting, they are notoriously do a lot upselling, so
you can skip all these part and simply click on proceed to checkout. so here I’ll be
paying 48$ for one year hosting and one free domain, now you need to click on new customer
or if you already have a GoDaddy account, you can click on that and create you GoDaddy
account. so once you have created your GoDaddy account, the next step is to make the payment,
GoDaddy offers various payment options including credit card, PayPal and few more, so you can
use any of them and within minutes, your webhosting and domain will be ready to be use.
So this is about GoDaddy, buying webhosting from GoDaddy, if you have any question, feel
free to ask me in the comments section, in the next video, I’ll show you how you can
install WordPress on GoDaddy. Till then, bye and don’t forget to like and share this
video with your friends, they would thank you later.
