Buying a Domain name for your blog

Choosing a domain name is a decision that you and your business or organisation may be living with for a long time to come – so it’s best to ensure you acquire the best name possible from your search efforts!

A great domain name typically has the following:

  • · Is short (10 characters or 2 words max)
  • · Easy to spell and memorable
  • · Easy to pronounce
  • · Is a .com domain extension
  • · Is not easily confused with other brands
  • · Doesn’t have pluralization that could cause confusion

Some more tips on choosing domain names :

Keep your domain name short and clear, don’t go for long, drawn out names that are hard to remember

It’s worthwhile considering registering a name containing generic words related to your products and services, as it is easier for people to remember, but it may also have the best resale value if you should choose to sell your business and/or web site in the future.

.COM, .NET, .ORG, .INFO, AND .BIZ domain names can be registered by any organisation or individual anywhere in the world, with .com having the best recognition and therefore the best choice.

Should your preferred domain name be available in the .com domain name space it would be wise to secure it as soon as practicable while it is still available.

It’s best to check whether the name you are registering may infringe on someone else’s business name

Use your targeted keyword in your domain name.

The maximum length you can use is 63 characters. Web domain names are not case sensitive, which means you can access and display your name in advertising in upper or lower case; or even a combination of both.

Generally, there are no restrictions on who can register .com domain name, the period of registration can vary from 1 to 10 years.

FREE Domain Name with Hosting – Choosing the right Hosting Company to make your blog

If you choose the right provider for building your blog , you can not only get Hosting at an affordable price, but you can get a  a domain name free with the right deal. I know two popular hosting companies right now that offer this –  they are Bluehost and Godaddy.

You will still need to build your blog yourself, but its easy with a 1 click install with these two providers. Both of  them have  the quick set up 1 click wordpress blog install whihc I have used, however I prefer the blue-host  1 click install process much better , as  you can

Getting the right web host is difficult without knowing what you need to start your website . Forget about our list of the most popular top 10 web host for just a bit and think thoroughly of your own needs and reasons to start a blog.

Things to ask yourself before you start a website ( If you starting a blog , most of these are not as important )

· What kind of website are you building?

· Do you need Windows applications?

· Do you need a special version of software (ie. PHP)?

· Does your website need special software?

· How big (or small) can the web traffic volume go?

Here are a few things to look out for when choosing a hosting company

The Best WordPress website hosting providers of 2015


Amount of storage

When choosing your web hosting, one of your primary concerns will obviously be “How much data can I store?” For most small and medium web sites, you’ll find that several gigabytes should be plenty of storage. Some hosts may offer “unlimited storage”

Amount of Bandwidth

Just like storage, some hosts offer “unlimited” bandwidth; again, if you think you’ll be in a grey area, find out the limits or choose a host that sets the bar where all can see it.

Server Uptime Record

Nothing is more important than having a 24×7 operating web host. You need a web host is operating on a powerful server and stable network connections. 99.5% and above is the recommended uptime score; anything below 99% is unacceptable.

Number of website you can host on one account

It would be a pain to have to manage a hosting account for each site you own if you decide to buy more domain names and start another new blog , so make sure your web host will let you host multiple domains.

Email Accounts and Features

Make sure your webhost gives you an email Account with your website name . Most hosting companies will come with the ability to host your own email (something like email@yourdomain.com) but hey, it’s always better to check and be sure of it, yeah?

EASY 1 click install

This is essential if you want to build websites easily on your account , 1 click install makes installing a blog or website or forums , gallery a breeze. The best Web hosts allow you to install Web apps with a single click. The feature makes it easy and convenient to install a blog, CMS portal or other useful application on your site with minimal effort.

Does The Web Host Provide 24/7 Live Chat Support?

Personally I prefer live chat over phone, feel free to change this factor to “24/7 Telephone Support” if you think otherwise. What we want is someone who can throw us the lifesaving rope instantly when we press the S.O.S button.



Free advertising credits are a great perk now offered by most major Web hosting services. Credits help you get the word out about your business without devising a separate advertising budget. Many hosting providers give your Google adwords advertising coupons ,Bing coupons free just to sign up. Free Linked in advertising vouchers are also new with this

Renewal Prices

Hosting deals, shared hosting especially, are normally selling very cheap on signup prices but charge much higher on renewals. It is an industry norm. Unless you are willing to switch host every two or three years, there is no way to avoid the high renewal prices.

Becoming an affiliate

Affiliate marketing is also another great tool for monetizing your blog. Here is how affiliate marketing works:

  1. · An advertiser has a product she wants to sell. She agrees to give you a commission from each sale if the buyer is coming from your site.
  2. · She gives you a unique link that tracks your affiliate code. That way, she knows when a buyer used your link to make a purchase.
  3. · You include your affiliate link on your site. You can do this directly in the content or through banner ads. If a reader clicks on your unique link and buys the product you have recommended, you earn a percentage of what she purchased.

Joining affiliate programs like below lets you earn some extra cash:

· Amazon Associates

· LinkShare

· Commission Junction

· eBay Affiliates


Many bloggers start with Amazon Associates, since Amazon sells millions of diverse products that are likely to be a fit for most bloggers. Amazon pays commissions of 4 to 15 percent, depending on volume and product type.

Posting for pay

You can also try paid posting to earn money, these sites below can help you:
