Web hosting hub

More and more people are discovering the joys of blogging every day. In fact, I have friends and acquaintances that recently have embarked on their own blogging journey. No wonder as everyone has a story to tell and emotions to express.

A friend who just started blogging asked me if it is best to get the services of a web hosting company this early in their blogging journey. I said to her that if she really wants to take blogging seriously then getting her own web host is a sensible investment. However, I told her that I know some people who were all excited when they started blogging but then slowly lose the focus and enthusiasm after a few months of blogging. So I told her that she can try any of the free blogging platforms first and then if she is sure that she’s really into blogging then migrate the free domain into her own custom domain and get the services of a web hosting company. This is what I did for this blog which now has its own custom domain.

I also warned my friend not to be fooled by the myriad of web hosting companies in the market. I told her that it is best to get acquainted with the many features and benefits that she should be looking for a reliable blog web hosting service. I advise her to compare the web hosting plans of different providers as well as the reviews from real customers. I even gave her a website for a web hosting hub to help her decide on the best web hosting provider that will suit her needs. I told her that there are cheap but reliable web hosting services out there. There are also blog hosting services which cater to beginning bloggers and those that are running multiple blogs like me. When creating your blog, you can now choose between WordPress or b2evolution which is best for bloggers who have multiple blogs. I find it pretty cool. I wished I had known about this when I was looking for a web hosting company.

Well, blogging is a continuous journey. Surely, there are lots of things that we can learn as we go along. The challenge is for us to learn from our past mistakes and to keep on going despite of all the challenges ahead.
