To get really great domain names THAT are available, I use a tool called Lean Domain Search. As seen in the video, click this link to find an available domain name.
I recommend keeping the domain & hosting together. When you signup for Siteground, the first step is to pick your domain name (or skip if you already have a domain name).
We recommend that you pick colors, logos & a style that leaves an favorable impression with your visitors. From advertising to landing pages to videos to website to social media, everything you produce is a reflection of your brand.
If you used Siteground to register your domain name, it's already hooked up to work with Siteground hosting. If you used another service like GoDaddy or Domain Discover, then, let's connect your domain to your hosting.
The first step in connecting your domain to your host's server is to find the name of your server cleverly called NAMESERVER.
You can find the correct SiteGround nameserver records in your User Area → My Accounts → Information & Settings → Account DNS:
You will need the two strings that start with ns1 and ns2. In this case, it would be ns1.m16.siteground.biz
Now that you have copied the server's name (nameservers). It's time to paste those into your domain name's registrar (i.e. GoDaddy or Domain Discover).
This is very similar to all domain registrars:
4. At your domain registrar, enter the two NS records from your GoDaddy account in the appropriate nameserver field.
Usually, when you update the nameservers, it propagates within a few seconds. If you find that the server is not ready, clear your browser's cache & wait a few minutes before you install WordPress.
