Live video on domain research, hosting and wordpress setup. After keyword research procedure I pick up words for my domain in domainsbot.com. Really cool site for finding avaliable keyword options with all major extensions. And if desired domain name is not avaliable, it shows you alternative domain names to pick up.
Now when I have domain name avaliable, I purchase it at domain name reseller. I started with Godaddy, but later I moved on to namecheap.com. Decide was made since namecheap has affiliate program and included whois guard protection free for 1st year. That means when someone tries to find out details about your dopmain, the owner`s details are hidden.
So when we have domain, we have to point that domain name to domain name servers, where the site`s data will be. Since I bought domains at namecheap.org and I have hosting at Host gator, I must sign inside namecheap the servers`s name of the Host gator servers.
Why Host gator, i read all possible reviews and I found it as the most reliable hosting service. And it didnt disapoint me yet. Just opposite, when I am in trouble with something , I approach Host gator support center, where you communicate with their support with live typing. So far I had not many problems but when I had it as a learning curve, all my problems were solved in a no time. So having that kind of support is very big plus for Host gator from me.
When applying for hosting account at Host gator, be carefull to take baby plan, since you can host unlimited domains. That goes for addon domains, which are all hosted under the same IP and controled through the same Cpanel. Of course they have also reseller acount, where you can host different Ips domains.
When in Cpanel of your hosting account, you assign a new domain, to tell your hosting in which directory to put datas of this domain.
When that is done, next step is to set up wordpress. You accomplish that with Fantastico, which does all the job for you, with a few clicks. And in just few seconds, you very first wordpress is up
So you see, setting up your own wordpress blog is aint no big thing. Actually I found it extremly friendly to use, cause you must be aware, that the whole technology and its applications on internet are ready for average Joe to use it. So now you know there is no tricks and no special technical knowledge about it, you are ready to finally put your own virtual property on the world wide web.
