How to create a WordPress Blog with your own Domain


One of my friend run a Sports blog ( since last 2 years but no success, Now he asking me what to do? Here is the steps he should take to run a Successful blog.

Why choose a WordPress? First of all you no longer need to worry about knowing the code,
because the WordPress blogging software does the code part for you. When you log in to your WordPress blog, you have to do only two simple things to publish your thoughts, reviews and ideas about sports:
1. Write your post.
2. Click a button to publish your post.

You can not say a blog is a website because, There are three key differences between traditional website (homepage) and blog:-

  1.  Blog is extremely easy to add information to it. A blog is like an online journal, so you just log in, type what happened today, post it and it is done.
  2. You can add a simple little feature that automatically tells a whole bunch of other website that you have made an update to your blog – every time you make a change.
  3. There is a “comments” system like others blog systems that allows bloggers to have “conversations” with their readers by allowing visitors to post their own comments or views on the topic of discussion.

Blogging is now an important tool for YOU to earn online.

Following are the reason to run online blog with WordPress to make money:

  • It can provide a wider audience
  •  Boost your revenue
  • Generate better search engine ranking
  • Develop relationships with your audience through open communication
  • Build a community of interested followers.
  • Establish yourself as a leading expert in your industry
  • Blogs offer easy-to-use, cost-effective web publishing and content management tools.

Why Purchase own  Domain Name and Avoid “free” Domains?

Blog’s address on the Internet would be your identity, so it is crucial that you choose the right one. A domain gives the public a hint of what they will find at your site. If the domain name relates to your or your company’s name or brand, it makes your site that much easier to find.That is why you MUST get your own unique domain name, like www.[YourName].com. If you get it free from a web hosting company, your domain name will includes the company’s name. I don’t encourage you to use “Free” domain unless your objective of creating a blog is just tocreate a platform to share your journal with your offline friends.

Theses are reasons to avoid “Free” domain and started with your own domain are:-

  • Your domain name is easy to remember.
  • Your customers always know how to get to your site.
  • It can entice people surfing the Web to visit your site before someone else’s. You can easily move your site to another host while keeping your domain name.
  • No web host company’s advertisement on your website.
  • You can easily customize your look and web template at your wish.

You can get Free domain name from these hosting website with the purchase of web hosting:

How to Create Your Personal Blog:

Choose And Register A Domain Name One of the first steps of designing and building a website/blog, you have to check if your domain name is still available before you can register it. You can check here: Lunarpages, Host GatorBlue Host and Host Monster .

After selecting your domain name now select you hosting plan.

Choose the Web Hosting Services Plan

There are many companies provide web hosting service. When you choose a web host provider, the service is always the key factor you should look at. I have done a lot internet research before I chose these web hosting site provide the best hosting services from beginners to advance users: Host GatorBlue HostHost Monster and Lunarpages.
The reason I choose them because of their reliable services, they have great customer service available 24 hours a day. Their uptime is 99.98% and they have super fast connectivity and made my webpages were loaded quickly. Secondly, their price is also compatible.

Install the WordPress3.2+

WordPress is recognized as one of the most popular and powerful blogging tools.It is an “open source” application that anyone can download for free. But the best way to install the WordPress follow these guidlines;

  1. Login to Web hosting  control panel by using your username and password
  2. Go to “Control Panel”  “Go to cPanel”  “Fantastico”
  3. Select auto – install software and choose WordPress
  4. It will create mySQL database and will provide you user name and password to login into your WordPress admin panel.
  5. After login go to setting and change according to your requirements.

Choose a WordPress Theme to Design your Blog

WordPress Theme is a way to “skin” your blog. After you installed your WordPress, you can login to your WordPress at www.[YourName].com/wp-admin, Select the Presentation subpanel. You can find the default WordPress theme. Free theme you can get from Free Themes Directory, Free Sports Themes20 Specialty WordPress ThemesWorld Cup Free WordPress Theme and Sports Themes.
