If you host your own blog, you’re probably on some sort of shared plan. BloggerNoob is on a shared plan too. Dorks talk about dedicated servers and this and that, but you really don’t need much for a blog. If you don’t already have hosting, you should click on “Web Hosting” on top of my blog and get yourself one. A lot of you are noobs when it comes to Cpanel. Cpanel works awesome. It makes things fast and easy. You don’t have to fuss with the installs. You can have any type of site set up with a click of the mouse.
The hosting providers i mention above all have Cpanel. Well, all except the windows server. Anyway, you guys are reading my blog because you either have a blog, or you are thinking about setting one up. But don’t just stop at that. Cpanel allows you to set up other types of sites. You can use Drupal, Joomla, php forums whatever. You can set up subsites or host other domains on one shared plan. It’ll cost less then 10 bucks a month. You can host 100 sites on one plan.
WordPress is a great blogging platform. It’s a great content management system, but it’s kinda limited. Once you get familiar with WordPress, you should increase your education by trying out Drupal and Joomla. I’ve seen some really cool sites using these CMSs.
Bloggers waste too much time blogging and reading other people’s blog. When you get tired of the routine, you should login to cpanel and install a different CMS to one of you other subdomains. Mess around with it and try to download themes and templates. You’ll find that it’s pretty easy to set up.
