Benefits of niche blogging
Posting in a niche that interests you the most helps you to grow your traffic and make your domain more popular on the Internet.
The reason is when someone comes to your website for reading some post, he would surely like to read more posts under the same category.
Just like a business plan, you should outline what your blog is offering –
- What is your blogging niche?
- Who are you blogging for, your target audience?
For a niche blog, post on categories you specialize in, maybe –
- Cooking blog– posting recipes
- Programming blog – sharing code recipes
- Technology blog – sharing technical lessons or product reviews
- Travel blog – Posting about tourist destinations and places of interest
- Photoblog blog – Sharing images and photos you have clicked
- Personal blog – You day-to-day activities or things you find interesting
- Or anything else you like – Health & Fitness, Entertainment, Film Reviews, Place Reviews, Your Home Town, Your Views on something etc
From this concept, create
- Blog categories you like to post in
- Menu bar to outline your categories and give easy navigation
- Introductions – Your story so that your readers feel more connected to you
This cornerstone will make it easier for you to get new ideas and brand yourself as a blogger.
You should strongly consider getting your own HTTPS SSL Certificate. Sometime back Google has declared SSL as an official ranking factor and now the upcoming updates to Google Chrome browser will start to mark websites running without SSL certificate as “Not secure”.
As per the updates on new Google Chome versions expected to come before July 2018, visitors to your website using an up to date version of Google Chrome will notice a warning, which may put them off because most of the websites they visit on daily basis are properly SSLed.
You should also be concerned about your visitors’ sensitive data which consists of names, addresses, email addresses and payment information. If your website has a “logged in”, “members section” or “clients-area” on your website, then this too counts as sensitive personal information which needs to be protected.

Start by subscribing an SSL certificate and then follow the steps given here. If you are a WordPress user then follow this tutorial. For further support email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The root directory of your website has the content that loads when visitors access your domain name in a web browser. You need to put your “index file” in your website’s root directory for visitors to see your website, otherwise, it will display the FORBIDDEN page or files and folder archive list.
Website-related applications might also need to know your website’s root directory. Website’s root directory depends on whether the domain name is your primary domain name, addon domain or another type.
- Your primary domain name’s root directory is /public_html.
- Addon and subdomain names’ root directories were specified when they were set up.
Small hosting plans such as starter and economy allows you to host one domain which by default is your public_html.
Other hosting options that lets you host multiple domains, public_html becomes your primary domain (the domain name used to reference your hosting account) and other domain names are located either in your home directory or public_html or anywhere else with their names as specified while adding them from addon domain section of your cPanel.
For instance: By default addon domain yourname.com would be added as yourname.com folder in your cPanel’s home directory which can be accessed from the File Manager. (The home directory is the folder above the public_html directory on your hosting account.)

- Click Web Hosting.
- Next to the cPanel account you want to use, click Manage.
- Click cPanel Admin, in Domains section click the domain type you would like to view or manage.
Click either Subdomains or Addon Domains, depending on the type of domain you’re using. The root directory displays in the Document Root field.
