In this tutorial we will learn How i started this blog and made it online step by step and how you can too just by following what i did below
It consists of three simple steps. Here is what i did
Step 1 : Buying a Domain name
A domain is a name for your site which will be used to access your site on the web rather than using an IP address which is hard to remember.There are many domain vendors out there like Namecheap , network solutions , Godaddy. I bought a domain from Godaddy.com one of the cheapest and best domain registering services.I liked the name CreateWorkLive as its simple and easy to remember and it was a great name for me so i bought that name with a .com tld extension.
Step 2 :Buy hosting space
Then for hosting your website files you need to rent a server on the web. This can be done buy buying hosting services like mediatemple , Hosting24 and bluehost. I did some research and found that mediatemple was a premium hosting service provider which has a great support for their customers and their GRID system sounds promising to keep my sites alive even when it gets a lots of visitors suddenly. So i bought a GRID plan and while i was searching for some discounts using coupons. I found a site on google which specially offer only coupons for mediatemple hosting. If you are going to use mediatemple (mt) you can use these mediatemple coupons which i used to get a good discount on my Grid hosting plan.
Step 3 : Creating a WordPress blog
This is the main and hard part for a few. But with WordPress it becomes easy. I installed WordPress on my domain and my site is up and running in no time.Now my site was live and i was able to access it on the internet.You can learn more about WordPress on Wikipedia here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WordPress
Hope you enjoyed my article on how i created this site from the start. Let me know if you have any doubts on how to buy your domain name to how to host your sites on the hosting services.
