A domain name is a website address. For eg: facebook.com. The .com is called the domain extension. There are various extensions available and the price of a domain name depends on the extension. It could range between $5 per year and can go as high as $1000/year. The average cost of a domain is $10 – $30 per year. A .com domain usually cost between $10-$15 per year.
In simple terms web hosting is server space or part of a server. It’s similar to the space on a computer’s hard drive, but the server allows your website files to be accessible by anyone on the internet.
InfoBahn’s WordPress Hosting comes with easy to use WordPress Management tool & WordPress Support unlike traditional website hosting. Our servers are optimised to run WordPress sites leading to faster loading pages. See our Plans & Pricing Here.
WordPress is non-techie friendly software that allows you to easily create, design and manage your blog/website, without any technical knowledge. With our management tool you can setup WordPress in one-click however if you want our team can setup it up for you.
Now I will walk you through the entire process, step by step.
Part 1: Domain Check
Decide a domain name, short if possible. ~8-10 characters. Check if its available here. https://infobahn.technology
If you cannot find a .com try something else. When you search our system will recommend some.
Part 2: Choose a hosting package
You must choose a hosting package based on how many visitors are you expecting per month. So basically if you have a good follower base on social media and you plan to promote your website there you must choose a package accordingly. It is said that only 10% of your audience will come to your website. However, you can always start with the basic package and upgrade as you grow.
Part 3: Make the Purchase
You can purchase domain and hosting from two different providers. If you wish to make a purchase from InfoBahn, watch the video below.
Part 4: Setup WordPress
This part will be different for each provider so we cannot really do much here but if you have made a purchase from InfoBahn, just email our team and they will do it for you. And if you’re the DIY kinda person watch the video below. It’s pretty easy.
*Please note the interface in the video might not be the same with other providers.
