Before starting this step I want to discuss some initial step for you if you have done that previously it’s good but if you are a newbie in website development it will help you a lot.
The initial step for your website is your domain name. Your domain name will represent you on the web so make a list of your favorite domain names and choose it very carefully. Remind one thing that it is good to make a website on a particular niche(example-news) and if your domain name describes your niche it will very helpful in your future.
You can buy hosting from several websites as GoDaddy, Namecheap, Bluehost and much more.
Hosting is the space of your website on the internet so you should buy hosting from the best hosting providers because if you don’t do that and buy it from anywhere your website will be slow and you don’t get the best result from your website. There is also a very huge list of websites of hosting providers as Bluehost, hostinger, hostgater and, much more.
In my opinion, you should buy one service from the particular website. I mean that if you buy domain service from GoDaddy so don’t purchase hosting from there because they are good in domain name service and when you buy hosting you can choose Bluehost and whatever you want.
