Getting the Domain and Web Hosting For WordPress

I am writing this post as a base for the upcoming series of WordPress Tutorial. Many people have been asking me about how to create a WordPress blog. So i have decided to write a complete tutorial for beginners.

Note that, and are very different from each other. The .com version is wordpress hosted blog whereas .org is a package which you can use to create a self hosted blog.

To create a self hosted blog, you basically need two things – the domain and the web hosting. And there are many companies which provide cheap and reliable web hosting. But its not that easy, there are cheaters and oversellers. So the question is, how to choose a good web host?

After having an year of experience, I would recommend BigRock. Its good, reliable and cheap as compared to other biggies out there.

Purchasing Hosting and Domain

I’ll show you how to purchase hosting package and domain from BigRock India. Note that, the procedure is 99% same on every other hosting site. So you can follow this post, even if you decide to purchase hosting and domain from other host.

#1. Go to and Click on Get Hosting > Linux Hosting. Note that, by selecting Linux or Windows hosting, you are not interacting with the OS directly. Instead you will get a control panel and trust me, CP in Linux is easier.

#2. Choose the suitable hosting plan. I would recommend Linux Advanced Plan for beginners who plan to grow fast. But if you are planning for a small static website or blog, then go with Starter Plan.

#3. After selecting the desired plan, select the duration and click on Add this plan button. Where you’ll be asked to select a domain name or enter an existing domain.

#4. I assume you are creating a whole new site, so enter a new domain name and click on Search button. If the domain is available, click on add or else select other domain.

#5. And click on checkout button. Here you can enter a coupon code to get discount. You can use my domain name ( as a coupon code to get 25% discount.

#6. Now just complete the purchase and place the order by registering your account. You will then get e-mails about your registration details. Just keep these e-mails safe. You’ll need them to setup your site.

In the next post we will see – How to install WordPress on the hosting server which you just purchased.

How To Run WhatsApp On Windows

If you are wondering about how to run whatsapp application on your computer then you have reached the right place. In this post i’ll explain the easiest way to run whatsapp on your windows computer.

Now there are many ways in which you can run an android application on computer. But the one which i prefer is by using BlueStacks. BlueStacks is a software for windows as well as for mac which helps you to run any android application on computer.

You will need to download BlueStacks from their official website. Once you download it, run the installer and install BlueStacks.

App Search

  • Once you install BlueStacks, run it.
  • Open App Search and search for ‘WhatsApp’.
  • You’ll find search results.
  • All you need to do is click ‘Install’ button next to ‘WhatsApp’ search result.

Running WhatsApp

  • After installing WhatsApp, Run it.
  • Follow the instructions shown on the screen till you get to the message verification screen.
  • WhatsApp will send you a SMS and try to detect the incoming SMS.
  • Wait till the “call me’ button appears.¬†Once it does, click on it.
  • You’ll get a call which will narrate a code number.
  • You must enter this number in the box displayed on screen.
  • Once you enter the correct code, your WhatsApp installation will proceed to completion.


That’s it. You are good to go. You can use WhatsApp (with the help of BlueStacks) on any computer, provided you have a working internet connection on the computer.

Also you will need to add/sync/import contacts from your google account or any other source. I’ll write about it in the next post. Thanks for reading. And subscribe for more amazing posts. Thanks.
