Step 3: Choose a software

When you reach the dashboard, choose a software that suits you best, in case it is a blog, a learning management system, or eCommerce site, etc. I assume you already have an active domain or sub-domain that will be essential in the installation process. There is a variety of hosting companies that you can seek such as bluehost, hostgater, namecheap, skyhost, and many more.
