Blog Hosting

Blog Hosting is one type of web hosting. Blogs, also known as weblogs are websites that feature regular updates in the form of individual entries, or posts. With the many different blog hosting options available nowadays, getting your blog set up can often seem like an overwhelming task.

A blog is an abbreviated version of “weblog”, which is a term used to describe websites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information.

Blog Hosting: Features

Blog hosting is all about the features that allow you to install and/or use a blog-software such as WordPress, Typepad, b2evolution, Nucleus, etc. These features will include:

  • Scripting support (i.e. PHP)
  • Database support (i.e. MySQL)
  • Large amounts of storage space and bandwidth
  • Easy one-click install (i.e. Fantastico).

Choosing a Blog Host: 

The first step in choosing a blog host is deciding whether you want to create a blog with free web hosting or invest in a paid blog hosting provider. If you are creating a personal blog to keep in touch with your family and friends, then a free blog hosting service would likely be sufficient for your needs. Free blog hosts, such as Blogger and WordPress.com, offer easy-to-use interfaces that make it simple for people with limited technical skills to start blogging. There is no script installation or database configuration – as the blog software is all setup and ready for you.

For bloggers who are hoping to turn their blog into a source of supplemental income, it’s best to invest in paid blog hosting. With a paid account, you will have your own domain and greater options for customizing your blog. If you want to run ads on your site, you will be the one who keeps the income generated. You will also be able to accommodate larger amounts of traffic. Many paid blog hosting providers offer easy one-click installation for major blog software, so you can get your blog up and running in just a few clicks.

Weblog software (also called blogging software or blogware) is software designed to simplify the creation and maintenance of weblogs. As specialized content management systems, weblog applications support the authoring, editing, and publishing of blog posts and comments, with special functions for image management, web syndication, and moderation of posts and comments.
