13 May Setting Up Website Hosting with Hostgator
#hostgator is a complete ripoff! – This is the the most dishonest company I have ever dealt with! They charge your account even when it’s closed, add numerous auto check boxes that cost you a fortune, and auto set your account to renew – and turn it on in the background. Avoid at all cost!

After you have purchased a domain name, it is time to set up a hosting account in order to activate your new wordpress website. We recommend hosting your website through Hostgator. Hostgator provides one of the best values for hosting your wordpress websites and allows you to add an unlimited number of domain names (websites) to one single hosting account for less than $7/month. We have also provided the link below which provides an exclusive discount with Hostgator for Viral Home Marketing Members.
Once you have click on the above link you will be directed to the exclusive discount available on Hostgator.com. Click on the WEB HOSTING button in the top navigation bar to display the options available for hosting your wordpress websites.
RECOMMENDED HOSTING PLANS:
We recommend purchasing at least the Baby Plan to start. This allows you to host all of your domains through one hosting account. If you would like added security or need a toll free number, then you may upgrade to the business plan package now or at a later time. Once you have decided which plan is best for you, click the ORDER NOW button.
You will then be given 2 options to choose from. You have already purchased your domain name, so you will enter your domain name on the right side under “Currently Have A Domain Name.” Then click on Continue to Step 2
SETTING UP YOUR ACCOUNT:
The final step is to setup your billing and account information. Once you have finished filling out this information click on “CREATE ACCOUNT” at the bottom of the screen. You should receive a username and password along with your distinct cPanel access link. Please make sure to bookmark the link and keep this information safe and secure.
