Here are essential steps to setting up your web hosting.
Step 1: find the right domain name
You will need a domain name. When thinking on a domain name it should match your business name. If that name is not available because someone else already owns it see if a different extension is available e.g. .net, .org, .co, .tv, etc. If the domain name is not available think on a keyword that is related to your industry and consider adding that to your domain name. A bit of wisdom to also consider is making sure the domain name is not long. If you’re having a conversation with someone and they ask whats your website is please don’t let it be long. If you give your business card (which mybasicllc can help design and print) and its long on the business card they may not want to type in a long name. You can get your domain name at boppeshoppe.com (Start Here) Boppeshoppe is owned by Steward Clinton founder of Stewhosting. At this point it is apart of the plan to continue promoting domain names at boppeshoppe until we are in a better position to become an independent domain registrar.
Step 2: privacy protection or no privacy protection
Once you find the domain name that is suitable continue with the process. You’ll be asked if you want to make your domain name private (Privacy Protection) which we recommend because if it is public people will contact you to try and sell you additional services. It will cost to protect your information but some people dont mind and click on “no thanks”. Continue to cart going through the process until you’re brought to the next page where you will create your new account.
Step 3: Create your profile on boppeshoppe
In this next step you click on create account if you do not have one already, you will add your email address, create a unique user name and password, be sure to write them down and store them in a safe place of your choosing. You will also need to create a 4 digit user pin which customer service will need to access your account in the event you call them.
Step 4: Setting up your web hosting with Stewhosting.com

Step 5: link domain name to web hosting plan
You will see where it says “choose a domain” which means use the domain name you have purchased from boppeshoppe in this section to link the domain name to the web hosting.
Step 6: Configure
