    How much would I need to buy my own domain name/web hosting and whatever else needed?

    I'm a complete newbie. I've been blogging free on wordpress for about 3 months and wouldn't mind putting a bit of money in to it as a bit of fun to see how I do.

    How much will I realistically need? And s a newbie is there any books/resources I should check out first before doing so considering I have zero knowledge of setting up a proper blog?

    Thanks.

    Like $15 for domain and hosting, providing you go with cheap tlds and a cheap hosting provider, like hostgator.

    Software etc is optional.

    Most ebooks out there will teach you how to build a blog, check out the freebie section and start reading :).

    What about advertising and increasing traffic and stuff?

    Sorry if the questions are incredibly vague, I really don't have much idea about internet marketing?

    Thanks.

    Hello Bro,

    If you want to earn money through blogging then here is the details:

    1. Buy Page Rank domains with page authority and domain authroity.

    PR3 - it cost around 20$-25$(I am talking about medium quality domains)

    After that buy one hosting it cost around 4-5$ per month. Set up wordpress in that domains

    Place some content in your blogs..Make sure nowadays only niche blogs is good..

    So, make the domain as health niche and start post related to health....

    This way you will earn money...Charge 4$ per post and tell max. 30OBL

    All the best

    You can just go with google domain for $12 and use free google sites. For blog, it might be just enough.

    It goes with simple content-management-system, so you can easliy manage your posts and let your users add comments.

    It works on what-you-see-is-what-you-get basis, so you don't need to be a programmer - but you can implement html, javascript and python.

    Before all, google gives you lots of support and you have free access to any of google tools and services like e.g. google analytics directly.

    I use bluehost, which is around $15 for domain & hosting, thing i like about them is that they have 24hr call centre to ask anything if you get stuck, to me thats worth the price alone

    Shouldnt really need much just some domain & hosting which is only $15/month, if you have a bigger budget you can invest in some graphic design, seo and maybe purchase some plr articles. For $100 you can probably get some good work done for you on fivver
