So you have gone through quite a lot of knowledge as to find out what a blog is? Choose a name, choose a topic to grow your blog for monetization purposes. The next step is to buy a host to start installing a website or blog.
In this article, I will introduce you to a hosting provider called StableHost, which is a great service for anyone who wants to start a WordPress Self-Hosted website.
|NOTE: This article contains some links. If you click on it and buy the product, I will receive a small commission, it will not be in the cost of your payment. This fee is the provider paid me. Thank you very much for that.|
StableHost is a server service provider of two types: Shared Host and VPS (ie shared and virtual private server packages). Here we will use the shared host package because it is easy to use, cheap and the package is the lowest.
StableHost has 3 data centers, including two in the US and one in the Netherlands, but when you buy it, it’s best to choose a server in the US for better performance. Also, they apply SSD hard drive for the entire host package here whether high-end or cheap.
If you are new to StableHost, use the AFF40SH discount code to get a 40% discount on the Shared Host package.
