by Justin in Training

Ok guys

Here it is How to Setup a self-hosted blog

This is the way I would recommend, although I use hosted blogs from time to time, this is the way I would recommend

Today we will walk you through how to setup a self-hosted blog using WordPress.Org

/
So you probably noticed that there are a few steps that you will need to take to set this up

Domain Name

I recommend using a .COM first and foremost, secondly a .NET, or .ORG

Try to think of something that is short, catchy and memorable

You can pick up a domain at the same place you will get the next item, web hosting

Web-Hosting

This is the company that will host your new website online, setting up hosting is super easy as explained in the video

I recommend going with Host Gator Hosting which in my opinion is the best on the market

Themes

You can chose the theme you would like but I recommend the stock twenty thirteen theme that comes installed with your WordPress installation.

I am rocking the Thesis theme, absolute best theme but at $65 per site, may be a little pricey for someone just getting started

Use a free theme and as you start getting money flowing in consider switching to a theme like mine.

If you want to rock the same theme as me, hit me up in the comment section and I will not only answer any questions you may have but I will give you the custom css coding to make your site a awesome as mine as a bonus.

Plugins

I recommend using as few plugins as possible to keep your site lean and mean, lighter is better, pluggin weigh a ton

Here is what I rock on all my sites

Google XML Sitemap

Broken Link Checker

That’s It, however if I was running a free theme like twenty thirteen I would use one of the three top SEO plugins

  • All in One SEO Pack
  • Platinum SEO Pack
  • WordPress SEO by Yoast

That is pretty much it, watch the video which will explain everything then use a site like mine as an example of how to format your content
