The Importance of Hosting – Hosting – SitePoint Forums

I tried to get hosting for my website. Currently I have a blog on Blogger and I am thinking of buying hosting for my website. So, is it ok if I get free blog hosting or do I have to create a different website?


My first thought is to wonder why. Why do you think you should buy hosting, when you have no idea how you would use it?

I’ve never used Blogger, but as far as I know, you can only use it on the Blogger platform. If you choose to purchase hosting elsewhere, you will need to use an alternative, such as WordPress. There are many articles giving instructions on how to migrate from Blogger to WordPress.

Here you can determine what level of maintenance you want to perform (host it yourself) and purchase it, for example, from wordpress.com. I used to work quite a bit with WordPress, but updates and default themes are always annoying because they don’t always match.

Now that’s easy for a developer to solve, but of course it doesn’t apply to everyone.

I want to learn more by doing the work practically. I also want to promote my blog and reach many people. I’m still learning as a beginner and it would be helpful if I got the right direction to work with.

Having your blog on Blogger, or hosting it yourself and using WordPress or another CMS will make little difference to the success of your blog. The most important is the content.

Are you using a custom domain?

Not really.
But I understand that I should first focus on my content and its quality. Later I would go for other things, as I am a beginner I would have too much curiosity about it.
Thanks for your help sir.

If you think you’ll want to have your own domain at some point, I’d recommend setting it up as soon as possible. You don’t want to establish yourself with a Blogger URL and then go back to promoting a new domain and making sure people realize it’s you.

Moving the hosting of an established site is usually less of a problem than changing domains. You can read Google’s advice on the move here, which will let you know what it entails: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/9370220?hl=en
