Rain reminds me of blogging. It’s raining again and in times like these, I love writing. Blogging really relaxes the hell out of me! haha! Create and start a blog, people! You won’t regret it. Don’t worry about the technical stuff. In fact, today, I will help you tackle on of the slightly technical things: web hosting. When you want to create a blog, one of the things that you need to look for is a web hosting provider. Web hosting is where you can store your blog. You don’t need manual servers! For those who want to know what web hosting is all about, here is a very interesting video. I love the very simple explanation!
Now, I’m sure you will want a step by step guide on how to set up your own web hosting for your blog. One of the hosting providers that I use is BLUEHOST. I use Bluehost because they have great customer service and they are reasonably priced. Today, I will share with you the simple steps that you need to go through when you want to have a web host for your blog.
So the first step is to click on this link to go to the Bluehost site: BLUEHOST WEBSITE. Once you arrive at their page, click on the green GET STARTED NOW BUTTON.
The page will then show you the different plans available. I suggest that you get the PRIME option if you are creating a website though for a business. If you have a business, this package already has SiteBackup Pro so that you don’t need to worry about backing up your site. If it’s a blog, the PLUS or the BASIC package will do.
After you have selected your plan, you can look for a domain name (this is free when you subscribe to BlueHost or key in the domain that you have already bought.
Click on next and it will ask you for your information. Just key in the information that BlueHost needs.
Key in your payment details and that’s it! You have already purchased web hosting for your blog.
If you have more questions, you can easily start a chat session when you click on the chat tab.
I hope I was able to show you how easy it is to set up hosting for your blog! Happy Blogging!
