First off what is hosting? a web host is the company that will store all the files of your blog and serve them via the web to your readers. I recommend using
Host Gator or Godaddy as your web host. They are #1 on WordPress’s web hosting in my book and have the best prices.
You don’t want to chose a wrong hosting service and have you site go down. So take it from me choose a reliable hosting if you don’t want to experience issues such as your blog being taken offline, your website disconnecting with out notice and many other reasons.
Why shouldn’t I use a FREE Host?
There are many reasons why you shouldn’t use a FREE host, they include, not having permission to add adverts your website, no control over your website, no control over your design and most importantly, no one will ever want to buy a FREE website of you.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is a Website URL, for example MassiveLifestyle.net, popular domain extensions include .net. co.uk .org .info and .us.
Domain registrar’s are used to purchase your domain, we use Godaddy and Host Gator for all of ours! Once you have a domain, you need web hosting to host it.
What is Web Hosting?
Web hosting is space and bandwidth you rent through a company so that you may publish your web site online. Prices range depending on the size and popularity of the website, a new website typically costs around $100 a year.
Can I get my Web Hosting and a Domain Name from the same company?
Yes you can, both companys, HostGator and GoDaddy will help you with the purchasing of both the domain and hosting.
