Good in-built SEO, you can add and it’s cheap as compare to it’s competitor.
Here are some steps to set up a blog in 2022.
1. Select a good hosting
A good and fast hosting play very important role in blogging. Because if your website is slow and couldn’t open, then people will leave your site. There are so many hosting companies available outhere, I’m talking about few of them.
Please note that, I recommend to use general hosting not wordpress hosting.
Godaddy is one of the popular hosting services and one of the old and most trusted one. it’s hosting plan start from 3$ or 119 INR/ per month. You can see the plans here. The main advantage of godaddy is they have good support system and as a new person they will guide you much better way. You can start from “Economy” hosting plan. Because starter has 512MB of RAM, which is not good at all.
Generally, I don’t recommend hostgator, it’s upto you, if you want to use hostgator or not. Their plans are cheaper than Godaddy, but also they are using old servers and speed of site will be slow as compare to godaddy. You can check their plans start from 2.25$. I also used their services and didn’t satisfied.
I found they are the cheap and one of the best hosting services, I’m also using them as I transfer from hostgator to hostinger right now. Their plans start from 1.99$ you can check all of their plans. They have good support and fast servers. If you want to choose any of them I’ll choose hostinger any day until now.
2. Install wordpress and select theme
Once you purchase a hosting you need to connect domain to do that you need to contact a technical person or you can take help from hosting support. Once you’ve done there is option showing to install wordpress in your cpanel.
It is just click and play installation. Once you setup wordpress. All you need to do is to choose a good theme. I’ve maintain best themes for wordpress you can check them. Onec you choose the theme you can click on themes under appearance.
