Getting Your Host Package Set Up
Step by step instructions
IONOS beginner package for LINUX
Here are Step-By-Step instructions for you to get your web site hosted. If you get stuck or need any help at all, please call or email us anytime!
STEP 1: CLICK HERE! Then click on the “see packages” button in blue (typically the Essential package is sufficient for smaller more basic websites) BUT they are currently having a promo with their business package starting at $1 a month for the first year, then $10 a month after that with unlimited storage! Very worth it in my opinion.
STEP 2: Choose a domain name if you do not currently own one. (if you do have a domain, don’t worry, SKIP that, I will take care of adding in your domain for you, simply click on PROCEED WITHOUT DOMAIN …its a blue button near the bottom of the page on the right)
STEP 3: Remember to triple check the spelling if your getting a new domain name!
(SKIP THIS STEP IF I AM ADDING YOUR DOMAIN FOR YOU, just click the blue continue button) If your domain is currently hosted elsewhere it will tell you its not available, that’s ok; Simply choose Transfer Domain then choose point DNS to 1and1. (if you want to transfer the registrar it can take up a to a week), its faster to simply point the DNS settings. (don’t worry you can ignore this step if you haven’t previously registered a domain name)
STEP 4: Follow the prompts to continue on … (no need to add word press or search engine ranking stuff, just click continue at the bottom)
Your Customer ID will be sent via email (make sure you use a good working email address during this process), please choose and write down your password. (send your password along to me along with your customer ID when you get that email) then Click “continue”
Fill out your credit card information and Click “continue” to follow the prompts and remember to send along your customer ID and password and we will get your web site up and running in no time at all!
