Now, you can do this on all hosts so its not unique to Bluehost but they do offer a lot of support if you run in to troubles. The idea here is that instead of having an email address like you can have something like which is personal, professional and looks very good to potential clients or readers. Setting up these emails can be tricky and over the years I have had amazing live support from Bluehost in this area. I know a lot of other hosts palm you off saying that it isn’t really their problem.
Bluehost gives its customers access to a lot of really cool extra features that you just might want access to someday. Some of the coolest ones include Site Lock, a bunch of free SEO tools, Spam filtering and Spam Assassin for your emails, free WordPress themes, site builders and much more. They also give you a free $75 Google Adwords credit when you first sign up to help you advertise your new blog and get it off the ground.

You can get started with platforms like Blogger or However, as your writings become popular you will soon feel the need for more features. This is why we recommend starting with You will have to pay for hosting and a domain name (which is quite low cost for a starter blog) but you will have the freedom to do whatever you want.

For a start, from the moment you make your first inquiry till well after purchasing their service, SiteGround’s customer support will not let you down. If you’re looking to host one site only, the StartUp 10GB plan allows up to 10k visitors a month. However $7.95 for multiple sites and 20GB a month GrowBig plan is very reasonable for anyone expecting up to 25k visits per month.
The first one is Hostgator. It’s one that we recommend, and they have a sweet deal for our viewers where you can start a blog for a penny. If you get a 3 year package, you can get one as low as $3.96/month. Unlimited disk space, unlimited bandwidth, so you don’t run into shortage issues. They also use wind power which is really cool, green, and environmentally friendly.
Not only do you benefit from a free domain, you also get a free SSL certificate, one click WP install and a 24/7 customer support. What was once $7.99 is now available for only $2.95 a month. Another superb cheap hosting for WordPress solution which you most definitely cannot go wrong with. If the biggest content management system says it is good, then it sure is worth taking into consideration.

The site also boasts that it is 100% green, being powered by wind energy, and they also have an anytime money-back guarantee. It includes some neat marketing bonuses that will help you get started, like a credit for Google AdWords, for Facebook Advertising, and for Yahoo! and Bing sponsored searches. If you live in the United States, they’ll also hook you up with a free tool-free phone number. Building your website is also a cinch with their drag and drop site builder, and there’s also a blog and photo gallery set up wizard to help your page look as professional as possible.

At the price of $3.92/month, you are allowed to host one website at unlimited bandwidth and storage. 99.9% uptime guarantee, SSD servers, 5 databases and HTTPS via Let’s Encrypt are more goodies A2 Hosting treats you with. If you need to migrate your website, they will happily do it for you. Up to 25 email addresses, multilingual support, spam protection and in-depth statistics, all this for a tiny investment. While there is more to it, we will let our exhaustive A2 hosting review reveal it all for you. To cut a super long story short, A2 Hosting is the type of a web hosting which is suitable for everyone. It does not lack features, it is fast and the support is eager to please and help, as well as fulfill all of your plans.
All these sites are great for people that know absolutely nothing about web hosting or managing a website. These sites give you little to no creative control or management ability over your sites. Most do not even have Cpanel hosting. These sites are only good for amateurs. The best site I have found that is free, uses Cpanel control panel, and gives me unlimited disk space, and bandwidth is is
Blogger is where I initially created by first profitable blog, It’s gotten easier to migrate blogging to wordpress, and you get that comfy feeling you’re using a Google product so you might already rank in Google or earn more on Adsense. Blogger also let bloggers edit the core HTML templates before ever did, which was a huge bonus once you wanted to tweak your template design. Additionally, big names like Georgia Lou Studios just released to her email list that she’ll stop making WordPress themes and focus only on Blogger themes. That’s a great sign for everyone in the Blogger and .blogspot community. For us, Blogger may always be the best free blog site on the planet.
Hi, I think it would be best if you copy-paste, republish your old posts, and backdate them if you like. Pretty sure major blogging platforms (WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr) have this particular feature. I highly suggest you delete your .blog blog as I reckon the platform will be shutting down soon since there are other better options for us out there.

A2hosting is the new entrant into our low-cost WordPress hosting guide. They have been innovating a lot and offering cutting edge features to host WordPress website. They offer free solid state drives (ssd hosting) and unlimited hosting which is every new blog needs. Their inexpensive WordPress hosting plans starts from $7.99 which is now available at 51% discount and costing only $3.92.
My verdict: So Postagon has a demo blog linked on their homepage to show us what it looks like. While it’s pretty to look at, there’s not much “minimalist” about it, as the site claims to be. This blog is just different looking. It has lots of features you can get anywhere. Just arranged differently. So my take is they are using the “minimalist” vibe to differentiate themselves. Is this to say that all the other platforms are too complicated?
You can launch a blog with your Wix site on any plan, from the Free plan upwards. However, to connect your domain name you’ll need to sign up to the $5/month Connect Domain plan. And, to get rid of Wix ads, you need to be on at least Wix Combo, at $11/month. As with Weebly, we’d recommend upgrading to a more advanced Wix account to get your own domain and get rid of adverts. It’s a small price to pay to make your blog look professional.
It all comes down to the size of your page or blog when deciding which plan would work for your best. But if you are just starting out with your fresh online project, AccuWebHosting’s Personal hosting plan keeps you in safe hands. On top of that, feel free to chat with their team live and pick the most appropriate program for your needs and requirements. Keep things at a pro level with AccuWebHosting and shine online.

Again, we reached out to customer support for assistance in setting up a temporary URL. Here we hit our first minor inconvenience with a wait time of eight minutes on chat. They weren’t quite as quick to point us in the right direction as previous providers, but we got there in the end. (E.g. when comparing HostGator vs. Bluehost, the support chat is much easier to access with the latter.)

However I’m looking to set up a blog for my own ‘satisfaction’ and don’t believe it’s the kind of site that people are going to find interesting/ I don’t expect any traffic and has no sales element! I guess what I’m looking for is also a diary that people are welcome to read (and make comments if they wish) so I really want something that’s free (or costs less than the price of a paper journal)
I tuned away from WP several years ago when (as a Mac user) I started using the blogging platform in my website creation software (Sandvox). So few people know about SV, but I have to say it is pretty good. WYSIWYG, drag ‘n drop images, flexible, much quicker and simpler than WP and other platforms, easy to publish, and it’s secure. It’s biggest weakness is that there are only about 100 or so templates to choose from.
Bluehost – You can both buy your domain and set up hosting on Bluehost. It’s SUPER easy and their customer service is great if you run into issues. They offer a few different options (with multiple tiers in each) so it’s a great place to start as well as grow since you can pretty easily move between options as needed (since it’s all one company and you can reach out to customer service anytime). They have shared hosting, virtual private servers, and dedicated servers which are all managed by Bluehost. The only drawback is as your site grows (more page views) the price will change and it can become expensive. Or if your growth is too sudden, you’re limited in your options to scale the size of your hosting quickly. But again, we’re talking millions of pageviews at this point. It’s a pretty seamless process all the way up to that point, so Bluehost is what I would recommend to any blogger who isn’t on a service platform.

I hear a lot of good things about Bluehost, I think they were giving people a “free” domain for the first year at one point as well. I’m using Web Hosting Hub at the moment and can’t fault them, although I haven’t had a lot of experience with other hosting companies, or trouble with my hosting to be able to compare too much (not complaining though!).
