Getting my own domain and best hosting service

When blogging becomes a passion, there comes a point in your blogging life you will realize that although free blog hosting sites rocks (like wordpress.com, the best free blog hosting platform), nothing is much sweeter than having your own domain on a best web hosting service provider.

Why did I specified best web hosting service? Needless to say, it is very important. When I purchased my own domain a few months back, I did not bothered to check which hosting provider should be considered. Now I am having trouble with my blog at bloggista.com as it is sluggish most of the times, and the page loading is unacceptable! Slow loading site simply mean lost visitors. Even myself, I won’t bother to wait for a web site’s page to load. My time is valuable and it is much easier to click on the ‘X’ icon on my browser and proceed to the next website or blog.

It is therefore prudent to do your little homework, visit review sites, visit forums and ask around and avoid the huge mistake (and costly that is) of just simply signing up for a website and hosting. You got to research which service provider offers the best web hosting.

So you won’t be worrying about slow web or blog site and loss valuable traffic.

Best way to sell online

My best friend came to me recently to share his idea of going into online business with his furniture products. He runs a quiet nice furniture and crafts business and sells his products to customers in the United States and Europe and is seriously evaluating better ecommerce software to power this undertaking.

First, I told him I could host him a website to do just that. And an SEO-friendly content publisher is just perfect which can support a shopping cart features as well. This is important as it ensures that his products ranks better in search engines.

I have been looking around for best ecommerce solution and I found out about Ashop Commerce that can just do all what a merchant want to do online – a hosted shopping cart software that’s almost plug-n-play, and search engine optimized. It can help build an online store that as massive as the other leading online sites, but is more affordable, and easier to use with its available, professionally designed templates. Of course security is important thats why it is best to trust a software that is secured with 128-bit encryption.

Domain Registration

4 months ago, I started this blog, just for the fun of it, and just the cool thought of being called one of the ‘bloggers’ in blogosphere. I never thought I would put in some real interests in regularly updating my blog, to the point that I realized the value of getting my own domain and hosting for my blog.

At first, domain registration was a bit hard to do. I didn’t know what were the things I needed to register a domain and which domain and hosting provider to sign-up. I started ‘googling’ to find nice articles on what are the qualities of a good domain and hosting package. That’s where I learned about the importance of being assured of reliability, 24×7 support, uptime, speed, flexibility and fully-loaded features that comes free in every domain registration.

For people ‘down under’, and even for people elsewhere who are planning to register their own domains, it is important to consider a premium hosting package but cheaper domain registration alternative. I would have had definitely made a better choice if only I came across this great resource on cheaper but more reliable website packages.

When I finally signed-up for my own domain last January (after earning a few bucks online), I was only thinking about putting a blog on it. Only now I realized the importance of a registrar’s capabilities of supporting me in going into e-commerce and online business later on during the domain registration process, and select those packages that support e-commerce shopping carts, and even in helping you putting up your very own online store.
