Create Your Own Blog Within 10 Minutes

Yes, you read it right, you can actually do it in 10 Minutes, I don’t know about you But I did it today.

I am not counting all the time of waiting for name servers to get updated etc, but It took me less than 10 minutes to login into my Server and Install a Blog on the Domain name. Did some modification and the blog was all set up to share content on the World Wide Web?

If you want to do it you can try it, it’s really very easy.

Here is what you need to do it.

  • A Domain Name ( Buy from GoDaddy)
  • A Web Hosting ( Hostgator Plan for $4.95/Month)
  • Nothing Else.

I know there is a lot of processes needed and things to know before buying a domain name and a hosting, such as which domain name to choose, it should be catchy, easy to spell, easy to remembers, brandable etc. Just figure it out and buy one.

Go To GoDaddy To Buy A Domain Name

Then comes the hosting, which hosting to choose, Hostgator is the best, I use it for all my blogs. My Plan is $9.95 Which allows me to host as many sites I want, plus it gives me unlimited space and unlimited bandwidth. Go for it if you are planning to have more than one website in future. But if you want to get only one hosted with them then go for the starter plan.
