Finding a Stable and Reliable Web Hosting Account

I must admit that when I first switched from a free blog platform to self hosted WordPress I jumped on the most affordable web hosting plan I could find. I did little research and just based my decision on what worked for others who had multiple websites or blogs. I knew that I would always be a person with more than one blog so I wanted to be certain my plan would cover more than one self hosted WordPress blogs. Now that I have “lived and learn” through the years with my current website hosting company, I have figured out […]

Save 25% or $9.94 off Hosting For Being a Reader

I have been using HostGator for my website hosting account ever since I switched to a self hosted WordPress blog. I became an affiliate with HostGator after I realized 1) I could do such a thing and 2) I really loved this hosting service. You see, I can become an affiliate with almost any company or represent almost any product, so can most other bloggers and people, however, I only wish to promote products and services that I can fully stand behind. My hosting company is one of those companies I can stand behind and feel good about promoting. I […]

Inability to have as many affiliate and ads on site as you may wish to use. You lose 100% control of your blog. Where are you going with this Brandy? I will tell you … I am a huge fan […]

Back forever ago when I finally decided to make the big switch from a free blogging platform to self hosted WordPress I had to look into web site hosting plans and determine which company was the best to go with. You see, having a self hosted blog is much like having your own web site where you need to not only purchase a domain name but you will have to set up a hosting plan which costs money and on top of that know how to transfer your old blog posts over to the new blogging platform. The hardest part […]

Affordable Hosting Plan For Website Owners

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Nexx Online. All opinions are 100% mine. I am a huge fan of unlimited web hosting, why? Quite simply because I own a lot of domains from BrandyTanner.com to HappilyBlended.com and many in between. Of course not all the domains I own are set up as of yet but without an unlimited hosting plan I wouldn’t be able to earn the full potential of my time and earn enough income to survive. Right now Nexx Web Hosting is offering Unlimited Web Hosting for only $10 for the first year […]

Web Hosting and Domain Ownership

When I first started blogging I began with a Blogspot Blog because it was free and seemed like a good way to get my feet wet so to speak.

Starting a blog on a free blogging platform makes perfect sense when you are new to this area of the world wide web. When you are looking for a self hosted blog you will also want […]
