Change Of Direction For dotrim.

Change DirectionIn recent days the offer of blog hosting at dotrim has been closed to allow for a new direction to be taken. Rather than hosting blogs on a dotrim subdomain people taking up the revised offer will be encouraged to purchase and use their own domain, and host the blog themselves.

If you want to get a head start you can do both of those things right now. In the near future a new eBook report will be released with further hints and tips to help you develop and build a business around your blogs.

Buying and Registering a Domain:

This step requires serious thought because a carefully chosen domain name will significantly help with SEO and getting your blog to the top of search engine results pages (SERPs). The biggest problem will be choosing a name that is still available.

I recommend that you use NameCheap for your domain registration.

Namecheap.com - Cheap domain name registration, renewal and transfers - Free SSL Certificates - Web Hosting

This video in the link at the end of this sentenceĀ  shows how to set up an account at NameCheap, and then how to Register and Buy a domain.

Hosting For Your Blog:

This is a critical choice, as there are lots of different packages out there, and they can vary in price and the features that they have.

My recommendation is to choose Hostgator’sĀ  Baby Croc Package. This package allows you to host multiple sites/domains all for the one monthly (or to save even more, annual) subscription. My package costs $9.95 per month for unlimited domains, subdomains and parked domains. You can use the banner below to investigate and sign up for a hosting package at Hostgator.

There’s obviously a whole lot more that needs to be added here to help you get started, but if you feel confident about having a go right now, feel free to use the links above.

And keep your eye out for the new eBook report with more hints and tips, as well as staying in touch here where I will add more resources to help you build your blog and business.
