I Bought A Domain Name Now What?
This is the most asked question in my telegram group. That’s why I have created this post to solve their Queries.
If you have purchased a domain and want to start a blogging website or something else then read the post minutely. Here I am going to show you what can we do after purchasing a domain.
Purchase a Hosting:
If you want to start blogging or a company then you have to purchase good Hosting to make your site online.
In this step, most of the newbies do mistakes. They usually purchased a hosting at cheap price. That is why their site opens very slowly.
So I recommend all the newbies to purchase at least a good Hosting for their site.RELATED POSTS:
My most recommended hosting providers for a newbie are Bluehost, GreenGreeks, Hostinger, and Hostgator.
If you are interested to invest money then you can go for SiteGround. Because SiteGround provides the best support. Support is very important for a new blogger.
I have already created a post on best Hosting providers. Don’t forget to read that.
Alert: Don’t go for free or cheap hosting otherwise your site can be hacked. I do not want to invest money then you can host your site on blogger for free. But here you get features like WordPress. On blogger, you can not get awesome themes, important plugins. On blogger, you will face the indexing issue.
After selecting a hosting, you have to install WordPress.
To install WordPress, follow my steps.
Go to your domain providers’ dashboard. Then open the nameservers option.
Now copy the nameservers which were given by hosting companies and paste them on the nameservers section.
After 1-24 hours, your domain will automatically connect with your hosting.
If you select Bluehost, Hostinger, Hostgator hosting then they will provide you free. Com domain for 1 year. Don’t forget that by clicking on the button.
After successfully connecting the domain, go to your hosting Cpanel, and scroll down. Now select WordPress and then select HTTPS option to install SSL. With Hostinger, Hostgator, Bluehost you will get a free SSL certificate. If you choose another hosting then you have to purchase it.
