a) Free platform:
For many new bloggers , the traffic for free blog platforms such as wordpress.com , bloggers, medium or tumblr is tempting. you let the platform own your name,If you keep in free platform , you may looking make money with a blog, they prohibit or limits the ads on your blog or they post their own ads. So , If you were serious about blogging , leaving this type platforms is the best idea.
If you do this, you will seriously you put the border for your potential victory for your blog . many new bloggers make major mistake like this. but this is also good who aren’t care about blogging. It have limits and limits, you can’t get your own domain name. so, I convey and recommend to you to choose and use nowadays the selfhosted platforms:
b) Self hosted platforms:
self hosted platforms allow you to run a blog using your own domain. you have various choices to use when you comes to self hosted platform, it is called content management system. The most famous platform is wordpress.org. it is one of the best and most well- known self hosted content management system is wordpress.org.
It was powering 33 % of all the websites on the internet and responsible for over 76.5 million sites. wordpress is recommended by many blogging experts , i have surveyed.
Why wordpress is the best platform showed by experts?
It is simply easy to use and also non- technical people can publish blog post. It has a huge community. Things called ‘themes’ and ‘plugins’, It’s super easy to change how your blog looks and functions without needing any special technical knowledge. many people are confused in wordpress: there are both worpress.org and wordpress.com are available . I will tell as follows what both of its mean.
wordpress.org: It is a selfhosted version. This is what i recommend above. wordpress.com: It is free platform. Using wordpress.org is a better option than using wordpress.com .
3. Pick a domain :
your domain name will be the name by which you will be the known by online,no matter what niche you choose.It is a blog’s permanent address on the internet and blog’s brand also. simply I explain what is domain and hosting both of it too important to know, when you come to blogging .

The domain is basically the URL of your website. examples: google.com, facebook.com. see it is easy! is it?

Hosting is basically the company that puts your website up on the internet. so everyone else can see it . everything will be saved on there. The general rule is to go for a “dot com”.

A best web host means that your blog will be available to every single person in the world. If you don’t have a web host no one else would be able to see your blog .
Choosing web host is most impoortant because both good and bad web host are available.
The wrong web host can cause many problems with your blog. There are many hosting companies are there like A2 hosting,bluehost, dreamhost and hostgator. etc.
But I suggest you as Bluehost . Bluehost is too fast and reliable. It backup your site daily,weekly or monthly. It make backup of your SQL database too. It’s don’t need to know what SQL database is.You just know that wordpress need it. It does not need a technical knowledge. so, it is much easy.

I will remind you the dashboard is a place where it all happens in the back end, including the option of installing your theme.
First you log in to your account, you are now able to choose one of the default wordpress themes provided by bluehost. select the theme, now you are ready to log in to the wordpress dashboard. once you enter and wordpress dashboard. you will receive ‘welcome’ message. you can do it on your own.
