Never too late, whoever you are, if you just want to learn to create a blog now it is good faith. Everything will not be delayed as long as you want to start well.
Do not care about the rumors that domain age affect the success of a blogger. That is true, but only slightly, more dropping, hehe.
I will share these lessons into 3 parts:
Starting a Blog, Paid Or Gratisan?
Choose WordPress or Blogspot?
List of free blog
Install Blog Server Paid
Before that, prepare yourself to read this long article. There is no harm in going to Alfamaret or Indomaret nearby to buy snacks, brew coffee with milk, or coffee without milk, or milk only, hehe.
This lesson I will make as much detail as possible, in order to answer all the issues surrounding the making of blogs from A to Z. I ask you to give the question if you do not find the answer to your problem so I can update this material.
Starting a Blog, Paid Or Gratisan?
Many people are confused where to start from nowhere. I personally started from a free blog on Multiply that time.
But what steps should be taken? Take immediate action to learn to make the blog a paid or free phased out?
Before answering this question, it helps us define who is paid. How much and what should be paid?
Definition of Pay
When you have a desire to make a paid blog (which later you have a blog address NamaAnda.com), the following are the items that you have to pay:
Theme or template
To have NamaAnda.com, buy a domain is a must. Generally, the cost per year ranges from 100 to 150 thousand.
Hosting is an option that you should take when you want to use WordPress.org engine (install a blog on hosting). But if you want to use WordPress.com or Blogspot.com, you do not have to pay hosting, domain enough alone.
So that was the address of your blog or NamaAnda.blogspot.com NamaAnda.wordpress.com could turn into NamaAnda.com without having to move the platform. And this process is much easier than you install a blog on hosting.
This theme is also optional. There are so many free themes or templates that meet the standards of SEO, but if you want a more attractive, then buy the theme is the choice that must be done. I used to buy theme in Themeforest, My Theme Shop, and Themify. Simply adjust the taste.
If the 3 points that you want to use all, some funds that you need to be like the following:
Domain US 10
Hosting US 20
Theme US 25
TOTAL approximately 1 million.
But then again, if limited enough to buy the domain. Capital so that you remove only 150,000 per year or about 500 per day. Only with a capital of 500, you already own a domain NESS. Cheap right?
I know, there are some of you who are still hesitant and worried when you spend some money, fear of endless futility because they lack knowledge / experience.
Rather than pay dizzy thinking domain, pay hosting, etc., began to be used with real action. Blogging is an activity that many filled with these 3 things.
Make a fellow blogger.
Exchange visits, or so-called blogwalking.
Immediately create account at wordpress.com or blogspot.com, and began immediately 3 it.
I will not elaborate discuss free blog, because this post will focus on blogs that need capital at the beginning.
Select WordPress.com Or Blogspot.com?
It’s like talking about the Apple vs Samsung, there will be no end. Everything has advantages and disadvantages of each. Use the most convenient according to you.
Both of these platforms use a custom domain. So, when you keep using the login username and password normally, as before you enable custom domain for WordPress or Blogspot.
As I said above when you have a previous blog address NamaAnda.blogspot.com will soon turn into yourname.
I use WordPress.org
What is the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org? The difference is on flexibility. WordPress is a content management system that is opensource. By using .org, you can use the many plugins that will help you in website optimization are also available millions of theme that you can customize for your needs.
Why do I use WordPress.org? Many large companies also use it, for what I choose another? The simple answer to this version. If translated will be very long.
Essentially, you can install WordPress into hosting your rent, and you can freely do whatever you want to your website, because you are not bound by any rules. You like to be creative in your own home.
Install Blog Server Paid
Before doing so, ensure that the domain and hosting you have purchased. It is better you buy 2 item is in the same place, for example in Hostgator or in Domainesia. In these two places you can buy a domain and hosting as well.
Why buy two items at the same place? In order for the domain and hosting can be directly connected, because if you buy it from a different place, you should do some settings again. But I will not discuss the settings here. I assume you’ve bought in the same place.
Receive Email Access Login After Payment Confirmation
You will be granted access to log into cPanel username and password information can be found in the email that you used when registering.
Login to cPanel
Entry into cPanel typically use an address like this revorma.com/cpanel. Then enter your username and password.
Soon after login, search enu as shown below.
I use Hostgator, hosting is no option Softacolous famous, presence is the Quick Install. Both are equally berungsi to install WordPress on hosting. So, there is nothing to worry about. The same.
Sign in to Quick Install, and follow the video filmed this Hostgator for more details.
And yes, all the processes from zero to your website can be accessed not take more than 20 minutes. Even if you’re a regular, 5 minutes is a very pretty.
Install Plugin Options
Just for additional insight, although you can very freely install the plugin on the website, do not carelessly in installed, make sure it comes from a trusted source and not pirated.
There have been many cases of compromised websites due to indiscriminate install the plugin.
I’ve discussed some of the plugins that you must install after you successfully install WordPress as a platform website. Here is a list of plug-ins required.
SEO by Yoast or SEO Ultimate (choose one)
WP Super Cache
