Step 1: Choose Your Hosting Plan

From the top menu, click on “Hosting” and then “Web Hosting”. Hostinger offers three main plans:

  1. Premium Plan: Ideal for beginners with starter websites. It includes 100 GB of NVMe storage, free SSL certificates, professional email accounts, weekly automatic backups, and a free domain name.
  2. Business Plan: Offers more storage, higher monthly visits, daily automatic backups, and a free CDN for faster browsing.
  3. Cloud Startup Plan: Best for established websites with high traffic. It includes all features of the Business Plan plus a dedicated IP address and priority customer support.

Step 2: Select and Purchase Your Plan

Let’s say you choose the Premium Plan. Click on “Choose Plan”, then select the duration (1 year, 2 years, or 4 years). With the 4-year plan, you get 3 additional months free and a lower renewal price per month. Fill in your personal information (optional), verify the total price, and enter your credit card information to submit the payment. You can also choose to pay with PayPal.

Step 3: Setup Your Domain

After purchasing, click on “Create a New Website” or skip if you prefer to do it later. Claim your free domain by entering your desired domain name and checking its availability. Once confirmed, fill in your domain details (name, email, address, and country). Select a server location near your target audience for faster loading speeds. Click on “Finish Setup”.

Step 4: Verify Your Email

To avoid losing your new domain, verify your email address. Open the email from Hostinger and click on the verification link.
