Welcome to the first step in creating the website of your dreams! Creating a website can be an overwhelming task and that’s why we created Blog in a Box! Get started by filling out the below. Please be as thorough as possible!
We can’t wait to see you succeed!
Step 1 – Domain Name
The very first thing you will need is to purchase a domain name. This is going to be the name of your website, something like bloginabox.com or heleneinbetween.com. Here are some places where you can find your domain names:
GoDaddy – At the homepage, you will see a bar called “Find your perfect domain”
Bluehost – At the homepage, click on the top menu called Domains and search for whatever domain you want
Step 2 – Web Hosting
The second thing you will need is to find your Web Hosting. This is the server that will host your site, or put your site in the web 24/7 so that people can see it. Here are some places where you can find some good web hosting. Please note that the list is from Cheapest but not best servers, to more expensive and better servers:
SiteGround (starting at $3.95/mo) (This is what I used before my site hit over 100,000 views a month)
WP Help Hosting (starting at $9/mo) (This is what I currently use but understand it’s more expensive – this is what I recommend if you think your site will have lots of traffic right away).
Step 3 – Theme
The third thing you will need is to find your theme. *This will be the theme and design that you will have in your website. HOWEVER, we can help you customize it to make it your own! Here are some places where you can find good blogging themes:
Creative Market (Lots of low cost options)
*If you already have this or any of the above, proceed to filling out this form. You must have ALL of the above first!
