Where to start you WordPress Blog
You need to buy Domain and web hosting for your WordPress Blog. Let me clear you what is domain and web-hosting and why you need them.
- The domain is a name of your blog which gives your WordPress blog identity.
- Web-hosting is a house where your all files are stored.
The best option to buy hosting is Bluehost (my trusted web host) and you will get a free a domain with it.
You can choose from these too if your budget is low:
- Bluehost: Discount plus free domain(Highly recommended)
- Hostgator: Cheap and good for starters. (60% OFF, $4.99 per month)
- Namecheap: They are also good for new WordPress blogs.
This is not a long process 10 minutes and everything will be ready. Just log in to your web-hosting account (cPanel) which you will see for the first time. A domain is there too because at the time of signup web-host ask you for the domain.
Now it is the time to install a WordPress blog on your domain or you can say associate it with your Domain. In future, your Domain will access the files from you hosting. Remember procedure will be the same for all web-hosting providers most of them are using cPanel.
Once you have your WordPress blog Installed, you need to make a few changes such as setting up permalinks, updating the ping list, setting up discussion settings, etc. Don’t worry, it’s not technical and you can quickly do it with the help of the guide below:
