Web Hosting For Your Blog: 3 Questions
Choosing web hosting for your blog can be a confusing thing, especially if you’re new to the blogging world. Surely, you Googled a lot and still can’t decide where to start. This post will guide you through some of the issues you need to think through regarding a Web Hosting.
You May Have These Questions about Web Hosting For Your Blog:
- Should I start out on a free service and upgrade later?
- Should I use Blogger.com, WordPress.com or get my own Web Hosting and domain? What is the best solution for me?
- Which Web Hosting company to choose?
To make things short, I’ll say that you shouldn’t use free services like WordPress.com, Wix.com, and Blogger.com, etc. unless you want to be able manage your blog as you want and save some money. It may seem encouraging to start your blog on free service until you have some income from your blog. But you’ll never have enough income on free service. Plus, WordPress.com is free to start with but depending upon what upgrades you want to get it can end up being just as expensive as hell.
My recommendation is to use open source WordPress CMS (content management system). You need to get Web Hosting to start using it. Surely, you’ll have a little work in the setting up phase (I’ll tell you about it below) but in the long run you’ll have full control over your blog, features and monetization. It will end up cheaper and more convenient for you!
