For all the online marketing aspirants out there, blogging is an indispensable part to grow online whether you choose any niche to get high conversion and become successful online. So, let’s get started!

Wait! I’m using some terminologies which some beginner might wonder what it is? I’m gonna explain each and every terms that you need to know to set up a successful blogging platform to grow online.

Niche selection:

Health
Hobbies
Lifestyle
Travel
Food
Marketing
Sports
Technology
Pet animals

There are a lot more apart from this, however, these are some of the familiar niches you can choose to start your blogging journey. You should be consistent to post at least 2 articles per day to build a strong blogging business online.

Get Domain and hosting:

For example, google.com is the domain name or the identity of the Google search engine online to the visitors who want to visit Google, in the same way, if the users want to visit your website online, you should have a unique name for your blog.

There are many Domain selling platforms, from which you can buy a unique domain name for your blog. Most of the familiar names might not available for you to buy, but you can search for the domain availability at leandomainsearch.com.

Some of the platforms are GoDaddy, Namecheap, Siteground, etc to buy a domain name for your website.

 

Different Hosting services
Shared Hosting:
This is the type of hosting in which you host your website on a server space that is shared with other websites, which means the server has space with multiple websites hosted on it. It is the best option to choose for beginners to host their website without worrying about spending too much upfront to start an online business. Moreover, it comes with WordPress installation with just a click.

 

Wordpress Hosting:
It is the familiar type of hosting to choose for beginners comes with all the requirement to build a WordPress site under the single tab in the WordPress dashboard which makes one easy to build the website without the knowledge of WordPress.

VPS Hosting:
With VPS Hosting, you have to build your hosting server from scratch by choosing specifications of your server manually like Operating system, Storage space, CMS, and finally root credentials for your server to host your website on the VPS server. With this type of hosting, you can pay according to your requirements of the server.

Dedicated Hosting:
From the word itself, it is inferred that the server is dedicated to your website without sharing the space with other websites. For that reason, it is a slightly expensive option to choose if you require some more server space to manage your website.

WordPress installation with Shared Hosting for your blog:
If you choose Shared hosting as your option, for your website, you can simply install WordPress while setting up your hosting in the hosting platform. After finishing all the required steps, WordPress CMS gets installed on your website and you’ll land on the default page of WordPress which you can edit in the backend of the WordPress dashboard.
