First Steps in the Web Hosting
Why do I need web hosting service?
In order to have your website available in the World Wide Web, you would need to have a place where to host it. This place is provided by the web hosting provider. The web hosting as a service incorporates the space where your website files are stored, the traffic to your website, and lots of extra services such as firewalls, technical assistance, email services, FTP access, domain name registration, website building tools and more.
What is a domain name?
The domain name is the unique name of your site, with which your visitors will find your page, e.g. google.com and yahoo.com are domain names.

Starting Your New

We have created an in-house solution, called the Account Setup Wizard which will walk you through the process of setting up your new website.

Next, choose what Enhancements you wish to add to your account – if you want to add any. When you are ready with this step – click on the Complete Setup button.
That’s it! You can now go to the front page of your site and check out the newly installed WordPress application.
