A properly designed website or blog has a great advantage and I don’t recommend free websites like blogspot.in, blogger.com or even wordpress.com because these all are free and limited to try all specs.
I personally recommend WordPress.org software to install on your independent domain and hosting account and it’s easy like 1-2-3 to get started with your first website.
You don’t need any technical knowledge to create your website.
You can buy your domain from world’s largest domain registrar Godaddy or Buy Cheap domains from Namecheap or any other domain registrars but these are some reliable service providers I recommend and use their services personally.
In case you want to purchase domain and hosting at one place for your first website then BlueHost Hosting is the best option for easy and good service in budget pricing and BlueHost provide free domain as well with hosting account.
However, I personally recommend buying domain and hosting from different websites.
My combination is Domain from GoDaddy and Hosting from BlueHost and that way I track service issues from both separately in case it may arise.
Connecting Domain with Hosting is quiet easy and I do using Nameservers.
My next bonus video will help you do that as well.
There are other options for Hosting I found useful and satisfying as per service standards.
- Liquid Web Managed WordPress Hosting if planning for more than 1 website.
- (IS) InterServer Web Hosting. They have managed WordPress hosting in $5 per month only for unlimited websites and first month is in $0.01 by using a coupon code TRYINTERSERVER
- 1&1 Internet Inc. is best for Big or Enterprise level sites or Ecommerce store dynamic projects with even basic plan of $0.99 per month for 12 month you can create a great website. They renew at $7.99 per month after 12 months’ time but worth specs for money spent.
- GoDaddy is also good for WordPress Hosting mainly and they start with INR 99 per month but renews at INR 449 however, WordPress Hosting have some flaws people report for PHP memory that can be upgraded manually by requesting GoDaddy services.
Following these can help you find a balanced deal on domain and hosting based on your budget and interest. So ready to create your first website?
Do remember, low cost may end up in low grade services as well so choose wisely.
