These “free” blogging platforms have crippling limitations and totalitarian authority over your content. They are, first and foremost, businesses. And their main only purpose is to turn a profit by using your website to sell ad space and placing enough limitations on your account that you are eventually forced into a “premium” or “unlimited” blog plan. Plans that are, more often than not, wildly overpriced and woefully under-equipped. To get a blog or site up and running, you need these three items: Domain name -A unique Internet address that people type into their web browser when they want to find and visit your website. Web hosting service -This is a server in a remote computer, where you will rent space for your blog to be stored and to live on. Blogging platform (WordPress) -The software that is installed on your server that you use to build and run your blog content. More information about blog starter.
