Creating a blog requires thee major things:
a. Domain Name.
b. Hosting Solutions.
c. Blog Template
Domain name is basically the name of your blog say ApexBlogger. You can choose any extension like .Com .Net .Org or even be local such as .us .in etc. Picking this is very important as this will create your brand in the future time. Selecting this wrong will let you nowhere. I can recall one major mishap in this regards: Amit Bhawani is one of the most popular blogger in India & he used to run a tech blog by his own name, after so many years & thousand of posts, he realized that he should now move to a new domain from his name. No doubt this will somehow hamper his traffic. Is if your blog is about Tech, try to find something related to your niche. Naming a food-blog, My travel blog will create confusion. Pick the correct one & search the net to see whether it is available.
This is one of the most important factor to any newbie blogger. Most of them though prefer Blogger or WordPress free hosting, (Why You should Choose WordPress instead of Blogger) but if you really want to prosper & serious about blogging & want to become a ProBlogger, then you should go for a paid host like – HostGator.
I prefer HostGator above all, not just because they are one of the top three web host, but because of their pricing, services. I have seen many local hosting companies to ask you even lesser amount to host, but beware of the actual performance. It’s always better to rely on a popular one than a cheap one.
One of my Friend recently asked me about HostGator Hosings, while I was telling him about the benefits to switch or start your hosting on HostGator, I have decided to share those with my readers.
If you are not a business organization or eMarchent then you might prefer to start your blog & not a Static website. Undoubtedly WordPress is world’s best blogging Platform, blogs like TechCrunch, ProBlogger are using them. WordPress instigation on HostGator gives them a tremendous boost. Most of the WP blogs are hosted on HostGator.
The following Video will make you understand how easy to host a WP blog on HostGator.
Now let me show you the planning structure of HostGator. The best possible plan for any blogger to start a blog is the Hatching Plan with just $3.96 PM. The best part you can avail this rate for 36months in a row, as the company offers a flat 20% discount now. You can get 25% off by putting ApexBlogger7tkHG this code while purchasing your plan. I will tell more about HostGator plans & features later (will link this post). If you want to try it then click on the following banner.
Blog template is last & most important thing before the launch of your blog. Go through Google for free WordPress template. If you have enough money & HTML knowledge them buy a premium theme & or customize a free & make it exclusive.
