So, in the next 7 minutes, you are going to learn how to start blogging. Perhaps most of the people want to start blogging and have the desire to be known as a blogger. Because we all know well how much one can earn by running a successful blog. Running a successful blog is just a matter of completing five steps. Without any further delay let’s have a look at those steps.
Step 1: Choosing a Domain
The first and far most important step for setting up your blog is choosing a Domain. Simply speaking a domain is basically the name of your website. But an important tip in this regard is to keep the domain name short and simple. Because domains with short names tend to be more SEO friendly and vice versa.
If your domain name suits and reflects your niche it will be the best thing you can do as a beginner. You should also try that your keyword is found in the domain you will select.
How to purchase a domain for your Blog?
An important question arises in your mind is how to buy the desired domain. No need to worry at all because the process is quite simple and easy.
You can simply go to BlueHostand check the availability of your desired domain. The interface of the site will look like this. Click the green button saying Get started.
Just type the domain you want to purchase and hit the next button as shown below. You can also change the suffix from .com, .pk, .org, etc depending upon your niche. However, if you already have a domain use the option namely (Use a domain you own).
Once the availability is confirmed you are good to move to the next step.
Step 2: Selecting a Hosting Plan
Once you are done with domain the next and far most important step is to select a suitable hosting plan for your website. Because without web hosting you can’t make your website visible on the internet. Simply speaking hosting is the place where you are going to store the files, content, images, etc. related to your website. Try to choose such plans which have minimum down times and full technical support.
I personally suggest you go for the Plus or Choice Plus plan as a beginner. As the second option will allow you a lot of freedom afterward.
Step 3: Filling account details and other information
After you have selected both the domain name and hosting plan just some necessary information for your account creation.
After that, you just have to select the duration for which you are going to register for web hosting. You can also change the account plan accordingly but I personally suggest to go for 36 months plan. Just untick all the boxes in Package extra section except the first one.
After entering the payment information tick the policy agreement and hit the submit button. A confirmation email will be sent to the email you have provided along with some other credentials and then you can create a password for you.
Step 4: Setting up your Website on WordPress
Congratulations till now you have done 75% of your task. The second last step is to set up your website is to install WordPress. You can either do it by going to Control panel of your Bluehost account and just click on WordPress icon as shown below.
