Here, you will learn how to build a profitable WordPress blog in a step by step manner:

Step 1: 

Do brainstorming and come to an idea about the niche which you want to blog on.

Step 2: 

Next we will go with domain name selection to start your new WordPress blog, once you decide the stream you are highly passionate.

Domain Name Selection:

The name of the blog is just the identity to your blog in the search engine. Rather, there are many advantages if you could name it right. Wonder after reading the list if you have missed any.

>  Let your domain name be descriptive so that people understand what you are blogging off.
>  Make use of proper keyword as a part of your domain name and this helps to win the grace of the algorithm.
>  Never miss the chance of getting high rankings with this practice.
>  Think and use the word which is easy to memorize and brings you a brand identity.
>  Always try to go for the .com extension to your blog as most of us are used to it. You may even try as per the type of service you are willing to provide, say .org, etc.

Step 3: 

Done with your domain name selection, and now step ahead to registering it.

Domain registration and hosting:

Always remember to get your domain registered from the websites which have already gained peoples trust. Otherwise, they may get disappeared in a couple of months.

Eg: GoDaddy

Go to GoDaddy.com and enter your selected domain name, always give priority to .com as it is useful in further.

Once you finished with domain availability check, continue to payment transactions.

Hosting

Hosting is done by a company which stores all your files on a server and deliver them to the users upon request.

It is while choosing the hosting plans, ensure that you are not going to get penalized with improper page load speed up time as these factors are very essential.

Eg: BlueHost, GoDaddy, Hostgater etc.

I would prefer BlueHost or GoDaddy as many bloggers are using and having good experience including me.

Once you registered login to account with credentials

Next go to manage to manage your blog/website

Step 4: 

Cpanel settings/Hosting account set up:

The best way to handle any website is to make use of the cpanel which is a control tool for managing web hosting accounts.  You may install the WordPress using this cpanel once you login. All the hosting accounts are managed here and this is a candid and easy process which everyone may follow and work on.

If you have selected GoDaddy as hosting provider, just follow the below steps

–>Go to manage Hosting

Cpanel login

–>Next step, click on File manager and select the theme root folder to edit
