    So you wanna blog on the cheap but have your own domain? Fear not, Godaddy is here! :p

    Domain: 7/yr
    Host: 43.08/yr

    That's 4.17 a month... If your blog doesnt make much more than that, it's not good.

    Now imagine hosting 10 blogs on the same hosting plan (a blog will never use 5 gb of space..)


    Total is 6.51 a month. That's 66 cents you have to earn per blog per month to make ends meet.

    You could easily host 10 professional looking blogs for 6.51 a month, no dumb 'myblog.blogspot.com', etc. It's worth it.

    I am confused. Isn't it more like $9.42/month, since you have to pay for 10 domains?

    You can also use subdomains for this purpose. Buy a common domain so you can create any subdomains on the niche keyword you want. anykeywordyou target.yourmeaninglessdomainname.com

    I have used them in the past but they are not very friendly to use. I would go with someone who actually proides technical support. You do have hosting problems on a shared platform and need hellp sometimes since most things are out of your control

    Y not just buy 10 .info domains for 9.90, host all 10 on a cheap hosting act. for $45 a year, and have 50 subdomains per blog and end up with 250 blogs, for 10 sites, then use the blogs to get your other 5 sites indexed.
