Psst! This page contains affiliate links, which means that I may earn a small commission, at no cost to you, if you make a purchase through a link. By doing so, you’re helping me pay my biz bills (and to drink coffee; lots of coffee, & to keep buying design books and art supplies, which I love). Learn more in my Affiliate Disclosure.

If you’re wondering how you can create a hosting account on Rocket.net for your WordPress website, then you’re in the right place.
In this blog post, I’ll show you how easy it’s to register on Rocket.net to start your blog on WordPress.
Grab your cup of your favorite beverage (I have my cup of coffee here ☕), and let’s start.
If you purchase a WordPress hosting plan with any of my affiliate links, I’ll give you my Canva Download Instructions Template (value $39) for free.
To claim this bonus, you’ll have to send me a screenshot of your purchase to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once my affiliate commission is approved, I’ll give you a 100% coupon code to get this template for free.
Go to Rocket.net and click on “See plans and pricing”.
Scroll down to choose a hosting plan.
The difference is that if you pay monthly, you get the first month for $1. And if you pay yearly, you can get two months for free.
You can get managed hosting, agency hosting, or enterprise hosting. If you have a small business, then their managed hosting plans may be the most suitable for you.
After you select a hosting plan, you’ll be able to purchase two or three years of hosting with more free months (you’ll see this offer after creating your account, so start by choosing a hosting plan).
You’ll also be able to see more pricing plans, and if you’d like to, you’ll have the possibility to change to another hosting plan before purchasing.
(Disclaimer: Rocket.net may change their offers from time to time, so take a look at their prices before purchasing.)
There’s no offer of a free domain for the first year or a free email service.
If this is a deal-breaker for you, then you can consider creating a hosting account on SiteGround instead.
While Lyrical Host doesn’t include a free domain for the first year, they offer email accounts and up to two years hosting plans (they even have a six month hosting plan, which I haven’t seen anywhere else). You can use my coupon code SOULFULGIRLS10 to get 10% off any WordPress hosting plan.
Another option that you have is to purchase a domain name on Namecheap, where there are always promotions available. They also offer email services.
Personally, I use:
I prefer to keep all these services separately, but that’s just my opinion. So choose what you think is better for your business.
If you don’t mind managing your domain name and your business email on another platform, select the hosting plan that best suits your needs on Rocket.net, and click on “Get started”.

Enter your email address and a password. You can also sign up with a Google account.
Then click on “Continue”.
You can modify your order summary in this section.
If you click on the hosting plan that you chose previously, you will find all the pricing options available for managed, agency, and enterprise hosting. Choose the one that you need.
Then click on “Billed annual”, or “Billed monthly”, depending on the plan that you had selected.
In this section, you’ll get hosting options for two or three years, with six months for free when you choose a bi-annual plan, and twelve months for free when you choose a tri-annual plan.
After deciding the details of your order, enter your credit card information or pay with PayPal.
