BlueHost WordPress Might Be The Best Hosting Solution For Your Blog

It seems rather easy to start a blog, right? Well, let me tell you about my experience so that I help paint a clearer picture of the decision making process getting ready to start your own blog. First, do you need your own domain? I did, and that is why I faced the following dilemma. I didn’t know if I should start a blog through WordPress or pick a certain hosting company, buy the domain and then start the blog through a WordPress extension. Not only that, but I didn’t know which WordPress host I was going to need.

I ended up starting the site through a particular host that is very popular. However, it ended up being a website instead of a blog. I thought I was going to take that route. In hindsight, I’ve rethought the entire process because I’ve seen offers about Bluehost WordPress solutions. Blue Host is one of the popular hosting companies, and they don’t charge too much money. Reputation when it comes to a hosting company, however, is everything.

They do of course offer you a cheap shared server, but it’s a good one. I’d be surprised if you hadn’t at least heard of this company. I am not currently doing anything with the site that I had started, and I plan on cancelling it soon. What I do want to get started with however is a blog, taking a different angle, and I think Bluehost WordPress would be what I would choose.

Which hosting company do you use, or have you yet to select one? Maybe we’re in the same shoes, about to start a blog and wanting to pick a hosting company and a good domain. I think I saw hosting for less than five dollars a month available with this company.
