It is time to get your own website

Have you always wanted a website for your business? Or have been blogging for a while on free WordPress.com and want to move to self hosted site but not sure how. I can help you. Are you ready?

How to start a Blog

This is one of the most frequently asked question. So let us start with it. 
Before starting a blog, please understand why you want to start a blog. If it is for fun and sharing your thoughts – start a free blog from WordPress.com. 
If you are interested in making your blog an income generating channel then please get a domain and self hosted blog.

What is Domain

Domain is name of your website. For eg the domain name of site that you are on is bloggingmadeeasier.com

What is Hosting

To start with you can think of hosting as a space where you store your website and which provides services that will connect your site to internet.

Self hosted site

In very simple words – when you buy own hosting from hosting service providers then you have a self hosted blog.

MORE FAQs Answered

What it means is you are using WordPress software for building your blog. You currently are using a subdomain xyz.wordpress.com and you are currently using hosting provided by WordPress.com

If you are interested in making your blog or website an income generating channel and take blogging as a profession then move to self hosting and buy a domain. If you writing as a hobby a free wordpress.com is perfect 🙂

No. This is a sub domain of domain WordPress.com. You will need to buy your own domain name

You can buy domain from any of the domain name providers. My suggestion is buy a domain while you are buying hosting as many service providers like siteground provide domain free.
