Step 2 – Select a Hosting Company
You will need a domain name and a web host to start your website/blog. We have selected several quality web hosts to partner with in order to keep this service free.
Simply select the host you wish to use from our trusted partners below (click on their logo or name), purchase your hosting, and follow the steps we outline in order to get your free website/blog setup. Many of our partners have specials that make the hosting extremely affordable. Most of our hosting services even include a free domain name, which is required for your audience to find you on the internet (ours is www.holycitywebdesign.com).
Remember that you even though you will have to pay for web hosting, and these partners pay us a small referral fee, it is at NO cost to you, in fact, we very often have special savings that you may not have been able to get elsewhere, plus, we will set your site up for you for FREE! Please make sure NOT to use any other promotional codes or discounts when ordering your hosting, since doing so will remove our codes and we will not be able to verify your information, thus will not be able to complete the free setup.

Once you have purchased your domain name and hosting using one of our affiliates, you will need to send us the emails you receive from the selected hosting company. This will allow us to setup your website/blog. *Remember that in order for us to do this, you must have purchased the hosting from one of our affiliates, using our affiliate links.

Why do we do this for FREE?
There are a number of reasons why we do this, including the fact that while the process is not difficult to do, for new WordPress users, it can be a little overwhelming. There are over 49,000 plugins available on WordPress.org’s plugin directory, not to mention the thousands of independently distributed plugins. We have years of experience installing, configuring and testing plugins, so we have a very good idea of which ones (in our opinion) are the best. There are also a number of configurations that are essential for a successful website/blog. Taking advantage of our service will get you started off on the right track, and let you focus on creating content without having to worry about many of the pitfalls that new WordPress users encounter.
How DO WE DO THIS FOR FREE?
We have established relationships with hosting companies, domain name registrars, premium theme and plugin developers, and other key service providers who pay us a small referral fee when someone uses our link to purchase their services. As an affiliate of these service providers, we are able to sustain these free services as long as people use our links to purchase any services they need. We feel strongly about the value and quality of the services we “endorse” as affiliates, but please do not purchase anything that you don’t feel you need. Please know that even though we may get a fee for referring you, there is no additional cost to you. To help us keep this setup service free, please consider using our links for any services you may need.
