Blog Hosting

Published May 26, 2007 by Dr. Tammy Powley

Many web hosts (Internet Service Providers aka ISPs) these days can host a blog, so if you don’t want to use a freebie blog any more, you can check first with your local ISP to see if it has this available. The thing is that you will need some place to host (as in store your web files), but you also might need some place to get the weblog software. Tyepad (http://www.typepad.com/) is one place that provides both hosting and software to run your blog. However, many regular Internet hosts do not provide the software to blog as well, so you need to buy this yourself. It’s not like using HTML, which is a language, not a software package. With HTML, anyone can create a web page using something as simple as Notepad. You just need to know the language. Blog software isn’t like this. It is software that, if you plan to run your own blog minus a network of any kind, you need to buy.
