If you are thinking about “How to Start a website or blog”? I’m happy that you are in correct place, my intention is to share everything I have gone through in starting a website or blog. I have been thinking and studying about more than 10 years and started my first website just a year ago.
I have almost researched many websites I see people telling that “They have started the blog with no technical knowlege”. If they have started a blog with no technical knowledge then they would have spent a lot time and money on that. Let’s not waste the time, below are few simple things that you should be aware of:
- Decide the key concept of the website/blog.
- Find a Host.
- Pick the domain name.
- Install WordPress
These are the 4 key concepts for starting the blog. Don’t worry I will be happy to explain all the steps.
1. Key Concepts of Website/Blog:
I’m sure without a concept you will not be here in this page. Incase, If you are here without the key concept, let me explain you key concept is nothing but what the website is about? For example, health tips, foods and recipe, etc,.
2. Find a Host:
When we see a hosting company the all will attract you with one line hosting is just Rs.99 or $0.99 per month. The fact is you will get that price only if you are willing to pay for 3 years or more. If you are a beginner I highly recommend you not to go with those hosting provider because of the below 2 reasons
- You are unknown about the response of your blog/websites.
- Not sure if your website will earn enough.
- Not sure if Adsense will approve your blog/site.
What happens if you got an site with 3 or 4 years hosting plan and Adsense disapproved it. It could be discouraging but these are the real fact. And also it is not that you can monetize only with Adsense but for a start up blog/website it is the best option to start monetize.
For a startup website you can proceed with Dreamhost they are one of leading hosting service providers. They offer you monthly plans. Along with a monthly plan you will get a free domain name of your desire. I’m suggesting this before I create this website I created 3 or more failure websites which were hosting under a 2 years contract. I have paid hosting for 2 years and didn’t earn a single penny from it.

You can choose any topic of your desire like health tips, recipes or news updates etc. Once you choose a topic you can pick your domain name related to the topic and mostly .com is known as a most trusted extension.
