How to Start a Professional WordPress blog for less than $38

Starting a WordPress blog with a limited budget of $38- $40 would seem a tough task for many but without wasting much of your time, let me discuss the prerequisites needed to proceed.

Buying the Domain Name

I would choose Namecheap or Go Daddy  as they are the best and the most trusted  Domain Name Registrars.  You can purchase a .com or .net or any other TLDs for approx $10. Or buy domain from the hosting provider as you will get the domain free.

Selecting the Best Host

Bleeping Tech is hosted on A Small Orange.  I choose A Small Orange because they are reliable and affordable. I have done proper research before choosing them. Below are the few reasons why Small Orange should be your choice.
