It would seem that everyone today wants to start a blog, and the way most people start is by using a free blogging platform such as ‘Blogger’ or other free blogging services like ‘Typepad’. However, sooner or later you will want to have more control over your blog by having your own domain name and hosting, this will ensure that you blog never gets shut down. One of the best ways to do this is by installing a WordPress blog on your own domain name and this article will show you the five easy steps to setting up WordPress on your own domain Tiny zone.
If you have never done this before it can seem quite complicated but in actual fact it is very easy to do. It can also be confusing by the fact that there are two different sorts of WordPress blogs. WordPress.com is a free blog service much like Google’s blogger, whilst WordPress.org is what we will be using to install our blog on our own domain name. This gives us much more control than we get from using the free services.
Step one: In order to host your own blog the first things you will need are a domain name and a hosting account. The domain name will be the web address of your new blog, and if this is going to be a personal blog then it is a good idea to try to use your own name in the domain. It is also a good idea to keep your domain name and your hosting account with separate companies. This just keeps you a little bit more control although it is no big deal if you have them both the same company.
