Hello friends this is the first paid domain for me and this is the first post for it (feeling excited :)) .Till now I was using only the free ones from wordpress and blogger , so I though its the time to get your hands dirty with some webhosting .As I am a complete newbie to this webhosting world , so i thought it would be nice to share my experience so that it can be useful for other newbies also and they can avoid those mistakes that I did.
After purchasing my domain from godaddy.com , the next big challenge that was in front of me is to host this domain somewhere. So, now I have two options in front of me for this Paid Hosting and Free Hosting.
First one is to go for paid hosting and use the services of already market leaders in this field like bluehost.com , hostgator.com etc and they will charge you a very nominal fee ranging from $4 to $10 per month depends on the plan and service provider that you are opting. These days it is very cheap to host a website in comparison to few years back. Ofcourse there will be lot of advantages that you will get in paid hosting in comparison to free hosting , but if you are a newbie and your purpose is only to understand the core of webhosting then i will suggest you to go first for a free hosting provider ,learn from there and switch to paid hosting.
As i said earlier if your motive is to just understand the semantics of webhosting then its ideal to start with free hosting.There are lot of free hosting provider available in the market and chosing best of them also is a tough task.When i planned to use free hosting for my domain , I compared major service providers like byethost.com , 000webhost.com etc. After reading lots of reviews and comparisons, I came to conclusion that 000webhost.com is much better comparison to others and providing all the things that I was expecting.
So, after reading tutorials on internet on how to host a website on 000webhost.com , I am able to sucessfully host my domain on there service and now it is up and running.
Believe me it took less than 15 minutes to host my website on there servers. I am also planning to write a post on how to host your website on 000webhost.com and how to install wordpress plugin on 000webshost.com.
Feel free to comment if you have any questions or suggestions.
