If you don’t have a host provider already, we have few recommendations:

Option 1: Client Register, then add us as a new user and we set up the server, we do all the settings and install the script (free).
Option 2: Client register and set up the server themselves (we can assist if needed) and then give us a Plesk admin login, we do all the setup and install the script (free).
