Welcome to the Technically Challenged version of setting up your blog hosting. I am providing videos of blog hosting setup for two hosting services, but this first one will be one Siteground. While any hosting service performs the setup in a similar manor, I thought it might be helpful to walk you through, step-by-step.

First, make sure you have chosen your blog name and the name is available. Read Before You Start a Blog for further details.

Step 1, Decide your hosting service

There are many hosting services available in all sorts of price ranges. You may want to read Best Website Hosting for WordPress and download the comparison chart. You can get the comparison chart for free in our resource library. Simply sign up below.

Step 2, Determine your hosting plan

Choosing your hosting plan will be determined by what you can afford, as well as the number of visitors to your site. All hosting plans have a tier-level setting. Refer to the Best Website Hosting for WordPress and the handout for details.

Step 3, Make sure the name you chose is still available

You can check the hosting name, as well as the social media instances at The video below will discuss whether or not you want to purchase your hosting as part of a package (recommended for most) or purchase the domain name separately. There is also a discussion in our post Before You Start a Blog.

Step 4, Have your Credit Card Ready

Determine whether you will pay month-to-month (more expensive) or yearly and have your method of payment available. This will make it easier when you register and purchase your domain and hosting.

Step 5, Sign up for Hosting and Install WordPress

The video below will take you step-by-step through all five steps of the blog hosting setup. If you need further information, leave a comment or join our facebook group and ask your questions.
