Then purchase your website hosting plan.

Please note: 12 months of free hosting is only available on SiteGround plans.
If you have an existing website we may be able to migrate it to a staging site where we can redesign the content. If your email accounts are using MS Office 365, your registrar will need to make minor alterations to your A-records to point your domain name at the new servers while maintaining your email accounts. We will supply you with the new server IP addresses.
