Start a Food Blog – Step 1: Register Your Domain Name
Think of a suitable and unique domain name. You can name your blog based on your cooking style or anything that is food-related. After that, sign up for a Siteground hosting account. Why Siteground? For an affordable price, you get automatic WordPress updates, free Cloudflare Content Delivery Network, fast response rates, side caching and the latest technologies— SSD, HTTP/2, and PHP 7.
Go To SiteGround
Siteground’s ‘startUp plan’ is the most suitable if you are looking to start a new blog. Visit their website and choose the ‘startUp plan’.
Move to the next page and key in your domain name. If the domain is unregistered, you will be charged a certain amount of money to register it depending on the type of TLD— in this case, the most preferable option is .com.
Proceed to the next page and key in the account information, your personal details, and billing information.
