started now button on the page click the button this is where you can select your

and a prime plan I recommend going with the basic plan and then you can always
scale up whenever you’d like if you have more than one website then you want to
choose either the plus plan or prime plan I’m gonna choose the basic plan for
this tutorial as this is most common go ahead and hit the select button on
whichever plan you would like to use we are now brought to a demain page where
we can choose the domain name that we want completely free or if you already
have a domain name you enter in over on the right for the new domain you can
select if you want to be a dot-com dotnet org etc dot-com is the most
popular domain extension so I’d recommend going with if you can
