So many categories of blogging are available on the web. But it is totally based on you which category of blogging you start with. But don't waste your time do it initially as you can.

Best Domain for Your Blog.

Choosing a domain for your blog is not as hard a task. But it is somewhat a little bit of a headache. If you have already chosen the address for your blog then this part is not meant for you or you can skip it.

Now read this portion if you haven't selected your web/domain address or name till now.

When I started blogging I was don't know perfectly that how to choose a good & brandable domain for my blog and that's why I waste 3 domains. But don't worry We always learn from our mistakes. 

To avoid mistakes like I have done while choosing a domain. Use these steps.

  • Short &Simple:- Always try to keep your web address/domain name short and simple. Sometimes it gets hard to remember/pronounce the domain name. Domain names with short addresses are easy to remember. i.e. If your domain name is www.johnamericanblogger.com then it could be hard to remember. So, keep away from that.
  • Keyword Friendly:- It is highly recommended to use your targeted/main keyword in your domain name. Forex. If you are going to create an education blog with a mathematics subject so try to more focus on using math keywords in your domain name because it will help you a lot in SEO.
  • Use TLD's:- Here, TLD means Top Level Domains. i.e. .com, .in .uk. .pk. .us, .net so like that TLD's you need to use. 

Want to know your desired domain name is available or not. Go to Leandomainsearch.com

Best Web-Hosting for your blog.

The domain name is only an address that creates a path to reach your blog on the internet. But one more thing you need to do with your blog i.e. hosting. 

What is Hosting?


To keep your blog 24*7 available on the web. All you need hosting. Hosting is just like storage for your blog where you can store your files so that if anyone accessing your document on the web easily he/can access it. Or mean to say it is a computer that lets you store and access your posts /files.

Well, there are so many hosting providers on the web. But I would highly recommend you to choose Interserver.com.

Trust me Guys it is one of the best hosting providers in the world. Their services and support oh I love it.

From my side, It would be best for your blog. Interserver' s hosting uptime is much faster than others.

Set-Up Your Blog.

Creating a set-up for your WordPress website with Interserver is not rocket science. All you need to follow these steps:

Go to Interserver.com.
Type Interserver into your search bar



Log-in.
Log-in with your account using your entered Email-Id and Password. Fill in all the mandatory information with your details. I would like to recommend you to the information that you are filling with that site like your CC no. (Details), Name, Passwords. Keep making a copy of this information on Notepad for future use. 


Choose WordPress.
Click on WordPress to install the hosting. It will take some minutes to migrate/process your website on WordPress.

After that Go to WordPress & click on the Admin panel to access your admin dashboard. Now, you will redirect to your WordPress dashboard after that enter your login details which you choose during the installation, and click on the login button.
                                  
After Installing WordPress with hosting. Go to your WordPress Home-Page. Check your website's web address/domain name along with it's loading speed to satisfy with Interserver service.

Choose an eye cache theme for your blog


After installing hosting with your WordPress website you need to do one more thing that is using the attention-grabbing theme for your site.

It's ok if you use some of the free themes that are available along with the WordPress website. The main drawback of using them is there may be many chances of spying on your data also they are not much friendly with your blog.


  • Simple & Attention Grabbing:-I would like to highly recommend you install the GeneratePress theme for design or give a beautiful look to your website. It is a very lightweight theme & another one is ElegentTheme. Their services and support are much well. But perhaps you will need help while installing them because these are very easy to manage.  

Important and Essential Plugins for Your Blog.


A WordPress website without plugins is like a TV with no sound. To keep this you need to use some essential plugins to more visitors because these will help you a lot in ranking your website in search engines like Google, Yahoo, but to rank your website with these search engines you need to pay more attention to your website. 

You have to focus on keywords, backlinks, also that you have to make your search engine friendly means to say you have optimized your site with the search engine. For that SEO will help your site to rank with them.
  1. Elementor or Thrive Architect
  2. Rank Mathe SEO

Things to keep in your mind are before publishing your post i.e. do keyword research following your niche. Possibly there are so many keywords following your niche that your site was easy to rank with.

Pro Tip:- Because your blog is new to search engines so try to use long-tail keywords within your post. 

Always try to use your post's title with numbers and strong keywords. Use images within your post because sometimes it becomes easy to understand things from images. Also, optimize your images with post related keyword. Try to write your posts with more details that make more users interest in your content.
