Starting a blog is an exciting way to share your story, message and ideas with a wider audience. It is also as important that you find a reliable host where your blog can “live” and accessible for others. Below is some information that we think you may find beneficial in finding a hosting solution that works best for you.
What do I need to do before finding my hosting provider?
There are a couple of steps you need to complete before finding a suitable hosting provider and making your blog “go live”.
Firstly, what is your blog going to be about? Pick a topic that you are passionate about and create a content plan around the topic that you choose to share. Spend time researching what is already available on the Internet and being written by other bloggers. Don’t worry if there is already a lot of content on your topic, this indicates there is a strong appetite for it. Develop your own “Unique Selling Proposition” (USP) on the topic you chose to write about and think about how to set yourself apart from competitors.
Secondly, create a name for your blog and start to develop a brand identity. It should be a name that is memorable and matches a readily available domain name. Click here to check if your chosen domain name is still available.
Finding the Right Hosting Provider
Now that the core basics are out of the way, you need to put a bit of thought into where and how you are going to “host” your blog or make it “live” on the Internet for others to search and find your blog.
Initially, we recommend searching for an entry level or low-cost hosting plan with a hosting provider that has a strong reputation. Research and read some of online reviews about the hosting provider as this process ensures that you learned about other people’s first hand experience of that particular hosting provider . While there are several hosting options that you can research and find we would recommend using shared hosting to kick-start your blogging adventure.
Shared hosting offers several benefits including:
- Low cost – It is the most cost-effective solution when starting out.
- Shared hosting is scalable and can accommodate to meet the growing needs of your blog.
- No server level technical maintenance or security updates required as your hosting provider will normally manage this for you.
