How to create your own blog or website?
Two years ago when I decided to create my own blog, I was very much confuse. I thought that it was very tough to me because I am not a computer expert, I have no knowledge about coding (HTML). I am only a diploma holder in printing and worked in a printing press. But I want from my soul to create a blog and I was very much excited about this after reading story of some successful blogger. After done few experiment I realized that I was wrong. It is very easy to create a blog like creating your profile on social media. There is no requirement any codding skill. You can create your blog a from a free blogging platform like Blogger or WordPress. I also write an article “ How to create a blog free ” . You can read this for making a blog with out spending money. If you use free blogging platform, your blog will be created under sub-domain of blogspot or wordpress like ” tapan.blogspot.com” or ” tapan.wordpress.com”. If you want to create a blog with your own domain like “tapan.com” then you have to buy a domain by spending 10 – 15 dollar. After buying domain you can redirected your sub-domain blog to your domain blog like “tapan.blogspot.com” to “tapan.com”. In another article I discus how to setup your domain if you want redirect your blogspot blog. If you want to create a blog like professional blogger then you should buy ” web hosting” that host your blog. You can get web hosting at 3.96 dollar per month. I recommend you to buy web hosting plan and domain from Hostgator or Blurhost because both of them are best hosting company in the world. Their customer service are amazing. When ever I call them for technical support they solve problem immediately. If you buy web hosting from hostgator, use this coupon code “BLOGGINGEXPRESS” for 25% discount.
