Once you’ve registered your domain, you need to find a hosting provider.
The simplest option is to use a web hosting service as this is often more cost efficient and easier. For a ‘beginner,’ setting up your own server can result in a lot of frustration.
There are a wide range of web hosting services that provide server space charged at a monthly and/or annual fee.
Hosting services generally include these services with your account:
- Disk space
- Monthly bandwidth limits
- Email accounts
- FTP Access
- MySQL database(s)
As a minimum requirement your host needs to have:
WordPress Multisite Hosting
