This is where you can select your hosting plan You will see three different plans A startup plan, grow big plan, and a go geek plan The most popular plan is the grow big plan This plan is good if you plan on having more than one website

This plan also comes with premium features which consists of a free site transfer, priority technical support, super cacher for faster site speed, and free backup restores The startup plan is a great choice to if you plan on just having one website You can always scale up to another plan anytime If you hover over all essential features you can see everything the plan includes For the grow big plan or go geek plan hover over the premium features and you can see what that includes

If you scroll down a bit you can get more information on each plan as you can see here Once you know the plan that you want Click the orange get started button at the top of the page or the green or blue get this plan button You will now be on the choose a domain page If you need to register a new domain name just enter the domain that you would like to have

Once you type in your domain it'll let you know if it is available or not If you already own a domain name select you already own a domain name option and enter in your domain name Once you are done click the proceed button The next step is to put in your account information Put in the best email address for you and the password you want to have for your Siteground account

Next put in your information for the client information Put in your country, first and last name, company name is optional, state/providence, city, street address, zip code, and phone number Next, put in your payment information Next, you will see purchase information If for any reason you need to change the plan click the square box to change your plan

You will see data center by default it will choose the data center closes to you click the gray box with arrows to see the other data centers and change if you need to Next, you will see period Click this to choose how long you want to purchase your Siteground hosting plan for I recommend going with at least the 12 month option so you can avoid the setup fee and save some money by doing so Next, extra services

If you already own your domain name two of the options regarding the domain name will not show up If you registered your domain name with Siteground you will see the domain registration fee Domain Privacy I highly recommend as this will keep your personal contact information safe so that your personal information is not out for everyone to get access too By choosing this your information will show Sitegrounds information instead of yours Without domain privacy more than likely you will get a good bit of telemarketers and marketers bugging you trying to sell all their services to you

Next, SG Site Scanner This plugin will scan your site daily to see if there is any malware on your site or if you've been hacked It'll let you know if this happens All of these extra services options are completely optional and you can always get one at a later date if you decide too Next, agree to the terms and conditions
