In this tutorial am going to show you simple steps on how to order Web hosting for your website from DomainKing.NG & get your website or blog running online.
For buying a Web Hosting plan with DomainKing.NG you need the following steps:
1) Visit DomainKing.NG Web Hosting page.
2) Select any Web hosting plan as per your requirement from the above link you have just clicked in Step 1. After selecting your Web hosting plan click on “Order Now” button.
