Get You Hosting Plan!
We got the domain, after that we need a hosting to publish our blog. Again there are many hosting providers out there such as HostGator is one of the most well-knowns. Also i am using hostgator too, it is very affordable for me. Also i wanna inform you about the plan you get while purchasing a hosting plan.It is also important thing. It basically depends on how many blog will you want to own. As an example i am using Hostgator's Baby Plan which allows you to host unlimited domains, unlimited databases and unlimited bandwith. These things are really important because they define your mpney to give for hosting provider. Before forgetting, i am paying $10/month for HostGator's Baby Plan, i strongly suggest you that if you plan to have more than one blog in the time.
