We’ll set up hosting with Site5, an affordable hosting provider with great features, uptime & support.

Choose a location closest to you.
The closest server to South Africa is London, UK.
Choose your package: HostBasic or HostPro, scroll down and hit the Order Now button.
If you’re planning on just hosting one website, just select basic. If you want to build and host an unlimited amount of websites (without paying for a new hosting package for each domain), select hostPro.
Complete checkout. In one of the checkout steps, you’ll be asked what domain you’d like to use. Select the option for a domain which you already own:
When you’re done with checkout, you’ll have both a domain name and the ability to host (and display) a website when people visit your domain.
In the next lessons, we’ll plan and set up our websites.
