You can even start at cheaper but you know how important is the quality of hosting & support.

In the market, there are also some hosting providers that will offer you hosting at the cheapest price but their support will not be good & it is very important to choose the right hosting so that you don’t face any issues in the future & also if you get stuck somewhere then they should be able to solve your problem immediately.

If you are thinking to start your own professional blog at the cheapest price then Name-cheap is a good option to go with, as it provides you hosting at the cheapest price & you can set up your dream blog.

I personally use Bluehost hosting, it is also a good web hosting for beginners, and WordPress itself recommends Bluehost

 Start a free blog

If you don’t have any investment then you can even start your blog for free.

Free blogging platforms provide you free hosting & a sub-domain (not a domain) through which you can easily build a free blog within a minute.

After creating a free blog your blog will look like this, For example, yourblog.blogspot.com or whichever free platform you choose they will give their subdomain but how your blog will look?? Unprofessional Am ‘I Right??

You can even buy your own custom domain name (Cost: within 500 RS)   & can connect it with the free blogging platform.

After connecting the custom domain your blog will look more professional, the sub-domain will disappear  [for example: instead of jitenbloggingtips.blogspot.com it will look jitenbloggingtips.com & that will make more sense Am ‘I right??]

 But free blogging platforms has some limitations & the drawback is that you even don’t own your blog & if you violate there any policy then your blog may also get deleted.

Another disadvantage of the free blog is that you cannot customize it fully & can’t take your blog to the next level using the free blogging platform
