Now after getting a domain the next very step is to get a web hosting for your WordPress blog, well there are so many providers who offers really really great service. But since we are talking about a cheap solution I would recommend you, according to my personal experience I have hosted more than five websites with them and all of them are running smoothly.


The company offers 99.9% up time at an affordable price and there customer support is also pretty amazing. GlobeHost’s pricing starts at Rs.249, and at Rs.249 you bassically get 250MB of storage, 5 Email Accounts, One click WordPress install and so many other options. According to me this is the best web hosting provider at their price segment. However for your hosted blog we would recommend you to get the Rs.599/year plan. The plan comes with 2GB of web space and unlimited email hosting with cpanel and one click WordPress installation.  So if you are looking for a cheap solution you must check it out.


After purchasing domain and Web Hosting you are done, however if you are buying domain and web hosting from two different companies then you have to update the name servers in your domain settings, but it’s not as scary as it sounds. So coming to the answer of our question How Much Does It Cost To Start A WordPress Blog is Doamain Cost + Web Host = Actual cost, Rs.99+Rs.599 = Rs.698. However if you are buying the web host from GlobeHost then you can use WELCOME as a coupon code and get 10% of discount.

      Hi Jamie, On the monetisation front I can suggest you as I have myself struggled to generate revenues, you can try out: this will give you the initial kick that you need to get started after generating some revenues you should reinvest in FB ads to attract more audience as FB ads are check you can use the rinse & repeat methodology.
      Let me know if it helps!
