How to Purchase Your Hosting
Visit this SiteGround link. I recommend the GrowBig Plan for my clients. Click “Get Started.”
Select Your Service
You will then select “I already have a Domain” and enter your domain name. Don’t worry, it’s not transferring anything right now. You are just letting them know you have one and what it is. Then click “Proceed“.
Make Your Payment
Enter in all the information. Under Hosting Services, you have the option to change your plan, change your location and change the number of months you wish to make your purchase. Keep in mind the 70% discount is only applicable for the first 12 months (or one year). Purchasing multiple years will give you the first year at the sale price and additional years at the regular price.
The data center selected here is where your website will be hosted. Double check that to make sure it’s the location nearest you.
The SG Site Scanner may already be selected (if you are purchasing GrowBig). If you do not want the SG Site Scanner service, uncheck the box as shown in the image. But I encourage you to pay this once a year fee!!!
Once you’ve completed everything on the screen, read the Terms of Service and then click “Pay Now“.
Moving / Migrating Your Website
Siteground offers migration services for $30.00 for existing self-hosted WordPress (not WordPress.com), Joomla, Drupal or other CMS where access to your database is available to them. They do not offer migration services for Squarespace, Wix, Weebly, or other third-party website builders.
Note: They do NOT connect your domain name, point your DNS or IP Address, move your existing email, etc. If you would like assistance with a FULL migration of your website, etc., contact me for a quote.
I Need Help!
If you are using WordPress.com, Squarespace, Wix, Weebly, or use some other site builder, you can contact me first to get a quote to move your website for you.
