Once you get the domain, you can click continue.

You can complete the purchase by creating an account and then making the payment.

After you’ve completed the payment, you will get your domain & hosting.

Next, you need to Install WordPress on your hosting account. You can do that by clicking “add site” and then complete the installation by creating a username & password for WordPress (This will be used to login into your LIVE website)

Once the installation is complete, WordPress will then be installed on your domain and this means, your website is LIVE. You can check it, by going to your website address.
