How to Setup your Account Initially

SiteGround has developed a unique tool – our Account Setup Wizard, to ease your first time ever account setup. It allows you to upload a new website or to initiate the free transfer of your existing website with just a few clicks literally seconds after you order your account.

Account Setup Wizard overview

The first time you login to your User Area, you will see our wizard that will help you set your account. The first thing you need to do is assign a domain name to your hosting account. You can either register a new one, or add an existing domain to it. If you're not sure which domain name you will be using yet, you can utilize the default one assigned to your account by SiteGround and select the Decide Later option.

Starting a new website

If you know which application you will be using, our Wizard will install it right away for you. Just select the application from the most popular applications list or from the available additional apps in the drop down and add the admin credentials you want to login with!

Transfer website from other host

Just use the form to provide us with your current account login details and our support team will start the transfer immediately.

Add enhancements to your account

We offer a variety of extra features that you may add to your account during the initial setup. If you want to purchase any of them, place a check next to the addon feature and click on the Confirm button.
