Find a reliable hosting for your WordPress blog

wordpress girlNowadays, it is easy to find a free WordPress hosting provider. For example,  MyFirstBlog.net provides free blog hosting (from LifeType to WordPress) since 2005. Tens of thousands blogs were created.

But due to uncertainties in free blog hosting business, funding from venture capitals is diminishing. So, most small free blog hosting providers start to charge on new blogs.

So, it is time to find a reliable hosting for your blog so that you can focus on content creation and monetizing (and keep all your profit).

One most important factor you need consider for your blog hosting is the speed. If your site loading is slow, you may lose many potential visitors. This, in return,  will reduce your possible earnings. So, speed is always important.

It is also better to use specialized blog  hosting, who knows the requirements and bottlenecks of blog traffics. This is different from normal cheap shared hosting.

For WordPress, if you just want to try WordPress, you can go to WordPress.com to try the  free one (very limited) or to upgrade to Pro bundle. If you are serious about your blog, you may try WPEngine, who provides hassle-free WordPress hosting. You are rest assured: your blog is fast and fully managed.  They also offer 60-day free trial.

So, you can start your professional WordPress blogs now by following this link Optimized your page load times, reliability and security. Fast, Secure and Scalable.. or WPEngine banner below

Create your blogs and groups instantly on MyFirstBlog.net

rocket-launchWe are glad to announce that MyFirstBlog.net now provides both blogging and social networking . You can not only create WordPress powered blogs (YOURBLOG.MyFirstBlog.net), but also create groups and make friends so that you can interact with other bloggers. You know you are not alone! You can also use your own domain name for your blog!

After comparison, we decided to stay in the open-source track. We prefer scripts licensed through GPL or similar licenses. The LifeType script we used before is not able to meet our expectations, although it is an excellent multi-user blogging system. What we want to add is what our users requested: a networking system, not just a blogging system. So, we go ahead with WordPress+BuddyPress.

Please give us your feedback on our support forum. We will add more and more features based on your feedback.
