with the baby plan as this includes unlimited domains go ahead and select a
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 dotnet dot org

extension if you already have a domain name just click on the I already own
this domain and put it in your domain name once you do 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
