Choosing Domain Name and Hosting
On day 1, You should buy a domain name and host for your website. You can use expireddomains.net for searching old domains with good DA. Don’t forget to check the overall health status of the domain. Check the spam score and check if the domain has been penalized by google. You can use Hostinger or any hosting platform. Since Hostinger provides premium services at cheap rates, I suggest you use Hostinger.
Buying Domain and Hosting from Hostinger
Step 1: Goto Hostinger Website
Step 2: Click on the Hosting From menu and choose WordPress Hosting or click here.
Step 3: Choose any plan that you like.
Step 5: Choose a domain name for you, Enter your details and click on finish domain registration.

Step 7: Congratulations, your website is online.
Just start your website with WordPress. It will take around 1-2 hours for the complete setup of the website if you are new to WordPress. If you have already used WordPress before, you can make your website in around 10 minutes. Don’t invest too much time in website Designing. Around 99% of people never complete their website. So, Install WordPress, choose proper themes, install essential plugins and start blogging.
Which Theme To Use
There are tons of themes available for WordPress. It may be confusing for you to choose. Believe me, a simple theme will provide you with more earning than a complex theme. I suggest you use Astra or Hestia theme.
Essential Plugins: Don’t forget to change your login page from /admin to /anything. Learn here how to change the URL of Login. Install, Rank Math for SEO, and also install Easy Table of Contents Plugins.

How to get success in Blogging?
Blogging can be the next source of income for you if you are consistent, learning capability, and have time. If you don’t have those three qualities, the above blog plan is a waste for you. Here are a few points that can help you to get success in blogging.
- Be constistent in number of posts per month. For example you can have 2 posts per week throughout the year.
- Don’t give full time to blogging in initial days. I have seen many people investing their initial days fully in blogging. You can give full time on blogging, once you have developed proper blogging skill, and having income from your blog.
- Don’t use AI or auto-blogging for posts becaues post generated by AI or auto blogger do not contains emotions of the writer.
- Please, don’t invest more than 1-2 days in website development.
- Try to get organic views. Don’t use social media for traffic.
- There is not any best blogging course. You must sharpen your blogging skill yourself.
