Where do I start?

I want an Email Address or a Website

You will need all of these:

  1. A Domain Name. A domain name is like a street address so emails and website visitors will know where to go, and you will need to renew and pay for it every year.
  2. A Hosting Package. You will also need to subscribe to a Hosting Package which you will pay for monthly or yearly. This is like a rental space that exists to provide all services like email and website, using the domain name you own.
  3. Order and Pay. To order both hosting and domain name, go to estart.co.za, choose a hosting package with the functionality you need, and click on the “Sign Up Now” button. It will then ask you for the domain name you want to use and you can search for available domains using this form
