– Register a new domain. In this case, we have thought the domain, but we have not bought it yet. In SiteGround, sometimes, depending on the offers or the plan chosen, they could give you the first year of your domain, and you can register it from this screen. In case the domain exists, it will notify you, or give you options.
Once you have entered the domain you want and it is not in use, we will continue to the next screen.
