STEP #2: Finalize Domain Name and Hosting

Before starting web development, please be careful while selecting Blog Niche.

What is Blog Niche?

Blog Niche appeals to “geographic area, a specialty of industry, age groups, or may be other particular group of people.” Like Health, Fashion, Technology, Graphics and Development are some niches. How to select a profitable niche?

For development of a new website and making it live, you will need two things:
A domain name (a web address like daungy.com)
Hosting (a service where you keep files of your website and it connects your site to the internet).
If you are going to use WordPress then its free to use but still you have to purchase your unique domain name and hosting. Domain can charge you $10-15 per year. And a good hosting can charge you $3-5 per month. Now the questions are from where you should buy domain and hosting? How to find a domain name? Do not worry I will guide you fully.

From Where Domain and Hosting Should Buy?

After experience of more than 6 years, I come to the conclusion that HostGator is much better for domain and hosting. Now the question is why I am referring HostGator? I am doing so because of following reasons:

1- They provide effective support for 24/7.
2- Their servers never go down.
3- They provide good bandwidth and space.

Special Tips for Choosing Domain

1- It should be brandable. (Check domain availability from GoDaddy )

2- It should be memorable.
3- It should be catchy.
