What do you need to start a blog with WordPress?
Below we will see what you need to start a decent blog that looks like a regular site rather than a WordPress subdomain. The solution with a hosting package, and your own domain gives you more management capabilities. There are three things you need to start such a blog:
- A name for your domain, e.g. iguru.gr
- A web hosting account to upload your website online
- Your attention for the next few minutes.
We will start by choosing a wordpress hosting provider. You need to choose the right web hosting company for wordpress. There are many companies that offer hosting services but do not have optimized servers to host WordPress without any problems.
We at iGuRu.gr, which is in wordpress, use the company WPEgine to host our site. The company offers security and optimized servers for hospitality that inspires confidence.
But its packages are somewhat bumpy especially if your page is expected to have high traffic. Here we will talk about Managed Hosting, specifically Managed WorPress Hosting.
Managed Hosting will solve your hands. Automatically updates core, themes, and plugins. Your site has the maximum performance due to the specially configured infrastructure. Managed Hosting infrastructures typically use the Cloud that is always better than simple hosting.
The site protects 24 / 7 from any size or duration of DDOS attacks, and there is specialized Support for whatever it takes.
There is a Restore service that will help you restore your site within a few seconds of an Auto Backup with one click.
What I choose
So according to the above with a Google search for Managed Hosting Wordpress you will find several services at very reasonable prices. Before choosing, search and read the reviews you will find.
Usually hosting providers also offer domains. In case you do not know what to do with the domain name you want, it would be good to buy it from the same company where you bought the hosting package. Support will help you with DNS settings. If you search patiently, you will find hosting services that offer domain names for free.
Let's mention once again: If you find some amazing offer, before you select it, search and read all the reviews you find.
Immediately after you have acquired a Managed Hosting Worrdpress package, you can play with the environment, upload your own personal logo, and of course start sharing your ideas.
