Choose the right hosting package
There are three options on SiteGround WordPress hosting introduction page, and you can click Compare Word Press Plans at the bottom to see a full feature comparison. Pay particular attention to the difference between Special Prices and regular prices. If it is for personal use, it is recommended to buy the first one, which is the cheapest. If it is a company or commercial website, it is recommended to use the second or third package plan.
After choosing a plan, you just need to click on the Get Plan button to proceed to the next step. Here you can choose to enter a domain name you already own or register a new one (remember: prices may vary depending on the extension you choose). Unfortunately, SiteGround no longer offers free domain names.
Fill out/purchase domain name
After choosing the corresponding wordpress hosting package, you need to fill in the domain name. If you have already registered the domain name, you can fill it in, or you can directly register the domain name on Site Ground (this is more expensive, not recommended)
credit card payment
After the domain name is determined, enter the payment stage, where the default is to use the credit card payment. Note that the company only accepts payment options such as VISA, Master Card, and Discovery (UnionPay in China is not supported). In the Purchase Information field, there are a few important things to note:
Make sure the hosting plan displayed is correct.
Check the system suggested data centers – the system will automatically select the closest available data center for you, but you can click the icon to change it if you want.
Note that the 12-month period is selected by default. If you choose the one-month Trial option, there will be a sudden setup fee, which can be annoying.
Check the Hosting Price column to see your special entry rate as well as your future renewal rate.
Under Extra Services, you can choose additional add-ons as they won’t be checked automatically by default.
Now, you must check the box to confirm that you have read the terms of service (it is also beneficial to read the terms of service first). You can also choose to “Receive Site Ground’s newsletter” which is unchecked by default. Once you click Purchase Now, you will be charged, so make sure all of your credit card information is correct.
After payment, you will receive a confirmation email. If you purchased the domain name together, you need to verify the domain name.
Generally speaking, the registration and purchase of Site Ground hosting is fairly simple, and the only trouble may be the payment method. Fortunately, Site Ground hosting can also use Paypal to pay, but you need to take the initiative to contact their customer service.
Pay with PAYPAL
Step 1: Contact customer service
Pull to the bottom of the siteground page first, click Contact Us, contact customer service, and explain that you need to use PAYPAL to pay. The customer service is also very aware of this situation, and they will tell you the steps directly. Be careful not to pay attention to the chat window of customer service at this time.
Step 2: Submit the order
Fill in all the information except the credit card, especially the email (also your login account), and then directly click PAY NOW to pay. At this time, an error will be prompted, don’t worry about it.
Step 3: Contact customer service to obtain the PAYPAL payment link
Next, you need to tell the customer service that you have submitted the order, he can see it there, and then ask you to provide the email or domain name you filled in earlier, usually the email address is enough. After confirmation, the customer service will send you an exclusive PAYPAL payment link, you only need to click on it and pay with PAYPAL.
