The Advantages of having Self Hosted Blogs


Having a self hosted blog is a big advantage than using free websites or blogs like Blogger. It is true that you can do a lot of good stuffs using free blogger platforms. You can easily publish your articles online however, these free sites have limitations unlike the paid versions.It is important to self host your blog, such as the one you have from wordpress.org. In this case, you have to register a domain name and create your unique blog on it without it having any prefix or any name after it. The self hosted blogs maybe used for branding purposes, search engine optimization purposes, personal journal update or any other writing routines you find necessary but the point remains that it is much better than the free versions.
All you have to do is to register your domain and avail web hosting services for your blog. Godaddy.com and Answerable.com are few of the well trusted domain providers online. I am previously using HostMonster.com as my Web hosting service provider and then i made switch recently to a new one.
Setting up a self hosted blog will take not more than 30 minutes. You do not have to be that techie too! If you know how to follow instructions properly, then definitely there will be no issues upon registering your new domain.
If you are also targeting to enter the world of blog advertising, then having a self hosted blog will be very helpful as it opens huge amount of opportunities! Go ahead, make a switch and start building your own identity!
