Choosing a blog platform is not really that hard, but sometimes we need to try every web hosting there is to see what comforts us. Anyway, I successfully bought myself a domain but I’m still bookmarking this post because it’s already been a year and I need to renew my domain ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’m still not so sure if I understand web hosting or not, so I’ll really check your follow-up post. I purchased mine from GoDaddy. It’s good. I made a mistake at first try, good thing they accepted my request to cancel some add-ons that I don’t actually need. I’ve also heard Squarespace. Is it better?

  63. Marge Gavan says:

    I did research about web hosting before switching to Bluehost before and basically, the things that you mentioned here are the same ones that I picked a year ago. This is quite helpful indeed especially to those who are not quite familiar with the technicality of web hosting.
