If you choose a free blogging platform then you have very limited access to different features like themes, plugins, etc. And you can’t modify your blog to make it perform well on Google search.

Here, I will teach you how to create a blog on SiteGround hosting. There are many other hosting providers like A2Hosting, Hostinger, Bluehost, etc but why I have chosen SiteGround hosting here? Because SiteGround is the best and affordable hosting provider than any other web hosting provider.

Benefits of SiteGround hosting:

How to start a WordPress blog on SiteGround?

To start a blog on SiteGround, you need to have the following two things:

  1. Domain name (your blog/website name)
  2. Web Hosting

If you have already a name for your blog in your mind then that’s good but make sure it is available.

Click here to check the availability of your blog name. If your blog name is not available then you need to think another available name for your blog.

You can also get the help of domain name generators which will help you in choosing the catchy blog name.

If you have already purchased a domain name from another service provider then you need to change only domain name servers.

Now just follow the steps provided below with screenshots to start blogging.

Step 1: Choose the best hosting plan according to your requirements.

First, click here to go to the SiteGround website then select web hosting.
