This blog creation guide is curated for users like you who are just starting out and knows a little or nothing about blogging.  After reading this blog, you can make your own Blog.

Step 1: Picking the blog topic (niche in which you want to work)

Here you have to find the niche or we can say the topic for your blog. So, that you can make your content around that niche. You should choose that niche which you feel confident about, or you know what articles you must write in that.
This is very common practice, if you can count on finger all the topics back to back then that niche is for you.

Now, the next thing is the domain, you have to buy the domain name. Generally, you should opt those names which is at max 12 character long. It must be easy to pronounce and easy to remember.  Just like www.traficana.com

Some people even target micro niche, for example Technical SEO is the part of Digital Marketing, rather than choosing digital marketing as niche, they will go for technical SEO. This will help to rank better or might be possible that they will use Technical SEO as a domain name.

When I was about to start a blog, I am really very confused for extension, there are various amount of extension available , but .com has upper authority, never go for .internet, .info sort of extension, it will take good amount of time to rank. I will prefer .com, .in or .org and recommend you the same.

Step 2: Pick a domain name & hosting for your blog

Now, you know what the domain name is, but the question may arise in your mind, where to buy the hosting and domain. When I was starting a blog, this is the big question for me. There are lot of free hosting available on internet, but free hosting is not reliable. After, did a lot of research I come to find Hostinger. An amazing hosting provider, where you can buy hosting at a plan of Rs 45 per month.

You can even use the domain finder, which is an inbuilt feature of Hostinger. Find the plans, which is provided by the company in the below image. The best part is that with premium and business web Hosting you will get SSL certificate and domain name free.


You can choose the single web hosting plan, but I will recommend you to go for premium web hosting. It will give you SSL certificate Free for lifetime and as well as the domain name.


This is the feature, where you will get the option to select domain name along with the extension, it will tell you whether the extension is available or not. You can go for this feature.


Once you choose the plan, the next tab, which will be open is the payment option, where you can choose the year and you can pay via credit card. You can easily see the cards option.

After, all this steps, wopieee!!!!
Your hosting and domain are set. I will recommend you to have email id on your hosting name as it will help you in long run, Now it’s time for wordpress installation and to show some creativity.
Hostinger will cost you nearly 2500 INR for a having a blog straight for a year.

1. Best SEO Plugin- rank math & Yoast SEO
