In my last blogging tip, we had a look over how powerful WordPress can be as a blogging platform for your blog. As we discussed that WordPress has two versions, i.e., WordPress.com which is absolutely free to use and WordPress.org which requires you to have your own domain registered and hosted somewhere. A lot of bloggers start with WordPress.com in the beginning to get a taste of wordpress and then later move on to WordPress.org with their own domain name for a more advanced blogging experience. Some experienced bloggers start directly with WordPress.org. In this post, I will share with you the most important benefits which WordPress.org gives you which can really help you to make money online like a professional blogger.
5 Benefits of WordPress,org
- Easy Installation :- WordPress.org offers you to download and install the wordpress easily on your web hosting. Infact, hosting providers have the facility of one-click wordpress installation on your domain. You can even install wordpress on the sub-domains.
