If you’re using the MailerLite website builder, your website is automatically hosted on our servers. No need to register with any provider! You can skip these next two steps and move on to #5.
For the rest of you, choosing a web host might sound like you need to call your IT or web developer friend. Surprise! Finding a hosting account isn’t complicated at all (though we won’t judge if you want to call your friend). Actually... maybe you should call that friend anyway just to say hi!
Put simply, hosting is where your website lives. Just like your Airbnb host takes care of your stay, web hosting is where all your web files are stored. Most web hosting companies will help you pick a hosting plan and walk you through the entire setup.
One thing to note is that when you buy your domain name, the same companies usually offer web hosting services as well. So if you prefer convenience, it’s easier to use the same provider for both.
That said, there are a few types of website hosting you should be aware of. The different hosting options depend on how many visitors come to your website regularly.
