Blogging network like WordPress.com provides you sub-domain addresses like http://example.wordpress.com but you can register a new custom domain with us, such as yourdomain.com and then map it to your existing WordPress.com blog. So that when your website visitors arrive, they will see your own domain name in their browser instead of something prefixed with WordPress.com which is your original website address.
A common excuse that most new bloggers (who blog on the domain of some other website) give is they don’t know how to install and setup a new blogging website with WordPress. Now no worries at all, there are many good bloggers earning a lot from their websites but don’t know a bit on setting up a new blogging website with WordPress, working with design, features and SEO etc. If you’re one of them then try our new and completely free WordPress installation service.
Before starting a blog first thing you need to do is decide what blogging platform you will be using, free blog hostings like Blogger.Com, Tumblr.Com etc or self-hosted blogging platforms like WordPress. Generally people start blogging with free-hosted blogs but they are not actually free. Yes, they don’t charge you a penny but they takes away all your freedom and keeps control in their hand.
