To register a domain, go to the official www.seekahost.com website and enter your preferred domain name in the search bar, then press the search button. The search results will show you if the domain is available or not and the alternatives you can choose from.
If your favourite domain is available, click on “add to cart”, and create your new account. Once your account has been created, you can register and login to the SeekaHost WordPress control panel and proceed with checkout. You can buy a .com domain name at just $10.5 per year.
Now your domain needs to be hosted with a suitable hosting plan to launch your WordPress website.
2. Pick a WordPress Hosting Plan
Create a new account with the SeekaHost.app to purchase a WordPress hosting plan of your choice. Upon successful registration, you can continue with the hosting plan subscription.
Enter your payment details and proceed with the final payment. Now you have a domain and a WordPress plan, but there are few more steps before your site goes live.
3. Set up a WordPress blog
On the left side of the control panel, click on “WordPress sites” and then click on “Create New WP Site”.
This is a one-click WordPress installation that integrates your domain in 60 seconds. Enter a few details like your domain name, and website title and your WordPress website is ready to go online.
4. Update the Domain Name Servers
Your site might be online now, but you need to change the default name servers in your seekahost.com account to the ones shown in the SeekaPanel account.
Go to “manage domains” in your seekahost.com account and click on “change nameservers”.
In less than 30 minutes after the domain name server changes have been applied, your WordPress website will be ready for you to start customizing it with selected WordPress themes and plugins.
5. Other Useful Features of SeekaHost’s SeekaPanel for Gamers
Setting up a website with the SeekaHost control panel is as easy as setting up a game server, possibly even easier. The SeekaPanel offers additional one-click backup and SSL installations, allowing you to take manual backups of your websites with just one click and you may be familiar with this process already, if you run a game server.
Before you activate the SSL on your site, ensure your site’s nameservers are pointing correctly. Then click on the SSL tab, and activate the SSL certificate on your site with one click. Check your site after a few minutes, and you will see the padlock indicating that your site and data is secure.
