How To Purchase Hosting
Follow the simple steps to see how to purchase hosting and get the domain name for FREE.
You need to visit www.harmonweb.com
When you visit the website, click on “Hosting” on the menu bar and select shared hosting when it drops down or visit the shared hosting link direct from here>> https://harmonweb.com/hosting/shared-hosting
When you get to the shared hosting page, you will see the 3 hosting plans, I will recommend you go for the business for your online store. For the starter and business plan, you get a FREE .COM.NG domain name while for the VIP Plan, you get a FREE .COM domain. Note that you only get these domains for free when you purchase a yearly plan which also gives you 2 months free discount. Now click on “Purchase Now” on any of the plans you will love to use. Any of those plans can create your marketplace, select the starter plan if you don’t have much to spend.
When you click on Purchase Now, it directs you to the next page where you are to register your domain name. There are 3 options for that, it is either you register your domain name which is the first option we are using now, or you transfer your domain that is already registered with another company to us and if you don’t want to transfer it to us but still use the domain, then you can select the 3rd option which is for you to update your name servers to the ones that will be sent to your mail after purchasing the hosting.
On the registration, we can see the domain extension is on .ac.ke but we need to change it to .COM.NG which will be FREE for us, you can also use another one such as .COM but you will have to pay for any other extension aside .COM.NG. To change your extension, simply click on the extension box and it will show the list of available extensions, click on .COM.NG and input your domain name to continue.
After you input the domain name, click on the “Check” button to see if your domain is available for registration, if it is available, scroll down and click on the “Continue” button. NOTE: Ignore the message that stated “Continue to register this domain for ₦1,000.00NGN”, you will get the domain name for free.
You will be directed the the next page to select hosting billing cycle, ake sure to select 12 months for the billing cycle so as to get discount and also get the domain for free, now click the “Continue” buton to proceed to the next page.
You will be redirected to the next page where you will need to configure and also confirm your domain, just leave that and click on “Continue“.
After this, the next page is the Cart Review page to confirm all your orders, you will find out some addons there such as Weebly site builder and Sitelock for security. Leave them as you may need them in the future. Click on “Checkout” after reviewing and confirming they are all correct.
Now the system will direct you to create an account where you can log in and manage your services. In my case, I already have an account so I will click the button that states “Already Registered?” when I click on it, I will then input my login details such as email and password. Since you don’t have an account yet, fill the form and scroll down to select your payment method.
You can make payment either with your debit card, PayPal, or a direct bank transfer to us. After selecting your payment method which in my case I selected the Debit card payment method, read and accept the terms and conditions and then click on the “Complete Order” button.
When you click that, you will be redirected to the payment gateway depending on your selected payment payment method.
Input you card details here and complete the payment, this payment gateway is fully secured by Flutterwave.
After you have made the payment, you will be redireted to the invoice and the status will show paid.
At this moment, you would have received some messages to your mail which one of them is “Hosting Account Information” open the mail and you will see your cPanel login details as highlighted below;
