What are the steps to host in siteground
The first and the most important step would be to chose a hosting plan. There are 3 hosting plans starting with StartUp Hosting plan for one small website. You can start small with startup plan and later upgrade to GrowBig plan.
If your domain is registered with Godaddy or any other domain providers, purchase a hosting plan from Siteground. Then you just need to point the domain name towards siteground, meaning that the site will be resolving from siteground, but the domain name will be renewed from godaddy or your domain provider.
Go to your domain provider and login to account page. Go to DNS manager and change the name servers and A records. If you want only one website, then you will just need to change the A record provided by Siteground.The plan will be created right away, the pointing takes around few hours.
The support is great than any other hosting providers. You can call customer care support of Siteground at 1.800.828.9231. I chatted with the Senior Sales Representative of Siteground who served more than 10943 clients and he was very friendly and explained everything very clearly. He stopped replying after 15 minutes though.
