Start with Hosting
There are 2 things you will need to get started. a domain name and hosting. You can do both at Becorath.com. There are dozens of discount hosts out there, but you should know, you always get what you pay for.
One of the best features of Becorath Hosting is the support. They don’t just offer the standard tech support, but they offer Business and entrepreneurial support. If you have a question about which email list service to use, they are more than happy to help. If you just need to know how to generate more traffic, they help with that too.
Becorath.com Blog hosting starts at $8/Month and a Domain registration is around $15/ Year.
Unlike “Discount” hosts, this isn’t an introductory coupon for the first year where they jack the price up after that, this will always be your price unless you require more storage or bandwidth. But with the $8 plan, you get more than enough for a personal blog.
They also offer plans for business sites and beginner Entrepreneur Packages.
