STEP 1: REGISTER A DOMAIN NAME AND YOUR HOSTING
A domain can be understood as your online address of your website ( Me is www.onlinemoneyinvestor.com) and a host is a computer you rent for your data storage)

urrently; HawHost has 2 packets : Primary and professional.
The only difference between 2 packets is storage capacity with 10GB space for Primary and unlimited space for Professional. I am sure you never use up 10 GB for a website or a blog. Click SIGN UP NOW at your chosen packet.
You are required to choose a Domain for your host, the Domain is the address or URL of your website or blog. If you are newbie and haven’t created a domain before; then click to Register a new domain.
