Once you’ve filled the site and user details, then you’ll be asked with the option to perform the payment for the hosting. There are 3 modes of payments you can do for your hosting.

  1. I’ll pay now – This option will allow you to pay to make your site LIVE instantly.
  2. My client will pay later – This option is beneficial for freelancers or those who work with the client.
