Self-hosting is when you own your own domain, and you pay a company such as SiteGround to allow your site to be viewable and 'live' on the Internet. Paying for this means that you own your website and all of your content - which is extremely important if you want to make money blogging. Self-hosting means that you do not use a free host (such as Blogger, Tumblr).
When you pay for your hosting and own your domain, you can monetize your blog, meaning you can run ads, join affiliate programs, work with big brands and even add an eCommerce cart/shopping functionality. Free sites like Tumblr don't allow ads, and advertisers often won't work with non-self-hosted bloggers. Because when you use a free host, you don't own your website or content, the free host owns it and can shut you out whenever they please.
In this mini-course I will show you how to correctly set up self-hosting and install WordPress so that you have an active, live blog ready for monetization.
1. A downloadable guidebook with all of the recommended tools & resources for running a profitable blog
2. A downloadable cheatsheet with a list of everything you need to do to monetize your blog once its set up
For example, I launched a new niche blog recently and paid for a year of hosting, which was about $72 for the year. So on day one, I was out $72, but owning my blog allowed me to monetize it, and that first month I made $1,200! So although I paid $72 to start it, it allowed me to earn $1,200. If I hadn't self-hosted I wouldn't have been able to monetize my blog and would have made exactly ZERO that first month.
This is why it is recommended that anyone who is wanting to take their blog seriously and intending to make money with it, purchase their hosting/domain with a reputable host, and run their blog on WordPress.org (not WordPress.com). I will show you exactly how to do this now so that your blog can be up and running and ready to monetize today!
You don't have to spend much to get high-quality professional hosting for your site! There are many great options for hosting plans available, but my number #1 choice is Siteground, which we will be talking about and doing a step-by-step walkthrough in this course.
