the plus plan or prime plan I’m gonna choose a 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 domain page where we can choose a
domain name that we want completely free or if you already have a domain name you
to enter it in over on the right for the new domain you can select if you want it
