equally host your website with them from a year to 3 years the above is your choice, remember the more years you select the more discount you get.

Now that i have explained about there hosting plan, i would like to move further to explain about how to host with this company.

Step 3:
You will have to select a particular plan which you have vowed for, you may choose to select any of the above plan in order to purchase a host,
like the screenshot has shown.

Step 4: On this tutorial, i choosed the soldier plan which i would be using as illustration. this means when you choose any of the above plan, clicking on order will add
your product to the cart and would refer you to this page where you will conduct the domain and host options, example, this is a page where you will choose a domain name.
Looking at the screenshot below explains the options which domainking supports example are:

domainking web hosting

(1) I want Domainking.ng to register a new domain for my new hosting package.

(1a)If this is your first time of buying domain name and hosting you are recommanded to use this option because it will enable you to register a new domain name.

2nd Option

(2) I want to transfer my domain to domainking.ng

(2a) This means, if you have an existing domain in other host companies and would’nt like them to control your domain again, choosing this option would enable you to
transfer your domain to domainking on your new hosting plan.

3rd Option

(3) I already have a domain and i will update its nameserver Or I will register a new domain from an another provider.

(3a) This option means, if you already have a domain and would like to update your name server you can choose this option or if you would like to register your
domain in other host company other than domainking you can select this option equally.

On this tutorial, i choosed the first option which is, I want Domainking.ng to register a new domain for my new hosting package and
i would be using my name “ELVIS CHRIS” as the domain name for example.

Step 4: On the box with (www.) behind, replace “elvis chris” with your preferred domain name to check if your domain name is available.
the combo box with a (.com) domain in it at the front
is where you can select types of domain which you may also like examples are .net, .org .in.

NOTE: A domain must be available before it can work. the availabilty must be in green colour.

domainking availability

Once your domain name is available, it should be written in green color, you would see many checkboxes on domains which are available, all you have to do is to check
the particular domain which you have budgeted, for example i selected (.com) as my budget, this means my domain name is ( elvischris.com).

NOTE: The boxes which has “more info” as its header are where you can select the duration of the domain checked and when its gets expired example,
you many choose from 1-10years of domain purchase.

After selecting your domain, all you have to do is to click on Continue.

Step 5:
