Your blog looks better on your own domain. If you’re serious with your blogging attempt and want to make it work for you, begin right and tight.
While justhost brags about its outstanding uptime and superb customer support for new bloggers, I love the “umlimitedness” in most of their features at mere $2.95/month which is enough to earn this place in best blog posting sites. On top of this confidence, Just Host offers a crazy 30-day MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE with all their hosting plans. Their $200 advertising credit for Google & Bing makes the offer even more lucrative. What stops you to get this web host for your blog? Go!
One of the most popular and oldest web hosts, Bluehost will turn 20 years old in 2016 and has become one of the first choices when it comes to best wordpress blog hosting. With almost 100% uptime, they have earned an official recommendation from “WordPress” community. For first time user, you haven’t bought your domain name yet, get your free domain name and free site builder with some brilliant templates. I would personally recommend to start with a simple and minimal wordpress theme focused more on the readership and value for your site visitors. I have personally used BlueHost for some of my blogs.
