There are several websites on the Internet who offers reliable web hosting service and most of the famous bloggers whom I know also suggest those big yet reliable companies. But the rates that they provide is not affordable for every beginner. Even if you according their guide it will cost you around 50$ to 60$ to setup a self hosted WordPress blog. Now someone who don’t really have or want to spend 50$ to 60$ to get a WordPress blog what they will do ? Most of the times they drop the idea of getting a self-hosted blog.
But dropping an idea is not something we would appreciate so we at Geek Post thought of helping new bloggers and made a list of minimum requirements and expenses that we need to setup a WordPress blog.
