If you've watched "Fire Your Webmaster," and you'd like to get started using wordpress right away, BUT your budget is a little tight right now, here are some inexpensive resources that may help you along.
Step 1. You will still need to buy a domain name (a.k.a. YourName.com) for your new website and blog! I recommend registering your domain name at BetterDomainRates.com.
Why better Domain rates?
Well… For one thing… in the sense of full disclosure, it's my own domain registry service and I will make a few pennies should you decide to purchase your domain name from me.
Second… It's where I personally buy all my own domain names, so if you get stuck, I can walk you through the process if you gimmie a call!
Step 2. You will still need to purchase a hosting account for your new website. I recommend Host Gator.
Why Host Gator?
That's easy! For one thing… It's because it's the same hosting service I use for the majority of my own website and I know it works.
Second… You can install wordpress on your host gator hosting account in about 5 minutes, and their 24 hour – 7 day a week support is awesome!
Third… Since I personally use Host Gator for my own websites and blogs, if your not sure which hosting package to buy or you get stuck, I can help you if you gimmie a call.
You can purchase your new hosting account at TimRomeroOnline.com/likes/hostgator!
AND… Here are some additional resources that can help you get your website and blog up and running today…
