The best platform for blogging:
Nowadays, many platforms are available to start blogging. Most beginners start with Blogger Blog (BlogSpot) or with WordPress.com blog because nothing in these things does require investing. Well, there are many platforms but if you want to make something bigger, just pick it up which is the best.
I only consider Self-Hosted WordPress as the best platform because it does not just cater to the needs of all our blogging, but also enhances our capabilities. The best thing about it is that it does not matter which platform you are on this time, you can easily migrate to it by using the inbuilt importer tool offered by WordPress.
You can also migrate your WordPress.com blogs to self-hosted WordPress, keep it search engine friendly. You have to pay $ 15 annually to WordPress.com to maintain 301 redirections for this.
What does it cost to create a new website?
Many people ask, what does it cost to start a blog? If we talk about a self-hosted WordPress blog, then it depends on how well you are in this thing, and how much you want to spend. If we talk about a newbie, you can start in less than a thousand rupees.
Nowadays, simple web hosting is available on a monthly payment for WordPress and its starting rate is only 200 rupees a month. Apart from this, you will need a domain name, even if the cost of a domain name is more than Rs 600 but you can also get at least 150 rupees for the first year under the offers.
After that, if you wish, choose a free theme for WordPress blog or choose a professional theme, this is your wish. In this regard, you must read our post:
