Installing WordPress: From Purchasing Website Hosting Until You Can Be Accessed

Installing WordPress is actually not difficult.

In the video I recorded for this guide, the process only takes less than 5 minutes.

But why so many people are confused?

Hmm ... maybe because WordPress itself does not provide official guides who speak Indonesian. So those who can not English a bit confused.

For me that's in this guide provides steps from scratch that you can follow today to make a website with WordPress.

Renting hosting and domain

Before you can install WordPress, you must have first place: hosting and domain.

Understanding simple as this:

Hosting or web hosting is the place to put your website. All files associated with websites placed on hosting.

While the domain is the address.

To be able to access your website, then people will type in your domain name in their browser. For example, the domain name of my blog is

Recommended hosting

There are many hosting providers and domain.

So you are not confused, some recommendation Indonesia hosting service that I feel is appropriate for beginners:

All three provide free domain hosting if we hire.

If you want to create a website in English for foreign visitors targets, then the hosting should be based in the United States.

These hosting services abroad that are suitable for beginners:

Before we go any further, be careful ... on the internet there are many people who do not clear their origin offering cheap hosting services.

You should not buy from people who are not clear.

Tips specify the domain name

I personally had a bad habit in choosing a domain: Like to think too long ...

Here are some tips specify the domain name:
  • Related or it could describe the subject / content of the website
  • Not too long, 3 words or less
  • Not similar to the name of the popular website
  • Using the extension .com
  • Does not contain a dash (-)
  • Contain no numbers, except if your brand contains the numbers
  • Easy to remember, it is not difficult to spoken / written
  • These tips only, not to be followed.

In fact, many successful websites that do not follow these tips above domain names.

Which is Better,, or Blogger? Here Comparison Of 8 Things

When you wish to create a website, especially in the form of blogs, you will hear people on the internet that comparisons between, and Blogger.

It usually makes people confused.

Worse, you could be miscast.

Therefore, now we will discuss objectively what are the advantages and disadvantages of each platform.

Differences and

First, we discuss the two twins.

Although the name is the same and come from the same company, but and has a very big difference.

By definition, self-hosted is a service, whereas is the hosted service.

What is that?

So easy to understand, can be compared to the place of residence:

Self hosted is like a private home. The house is entirely your own, in your own land, and not to others.

Meanwhile, it hosted such an apartment. The land is not yours, you only have a unit in an apartment units. The apartment belongs to someone else.

( also includes hosted)

It was to be the picture?

In essence, self-hosted is 100% yours.

Now, let's compare three of the various aspects.


WordPress (hosted and self-hosted) currently ranks first as the most popular CMS with the percentage of the market by 39% than the total of other CMS users.

While Blogger was ranked fourth with a market percentage of 1%.
The table above is takenfrom here.

Ease to be made and Blogger equivalent. Both are most easily made because you only need to register an account on the website each.
While little more difficult.

To create a based site, you must hire a hosting and domain then perform the installation.

The phases are described in the next chapter.

The cost of making and development

Again here and Blogger equivalent.

You do not need at all costs to create an account in both. Although there are storage limits, you will be able to pay monthly to improve capacity. is limited 3 GB, $ 99 / year to upgrade to 13 GB.

While in Blogger free 15 GB (for unlimited photos). This list price plan to increase its capacity, ranging from $ 4 / month.
You also do not need to buy a domain that you are willing to address your website so like this: or

In order so, it costs Rp 100,000 per year.

For, you need the cost of hosting and domain.

It costs around Rp hosting and domain 350000-400000 per year. Hosting capacity for this price average 1-10 GB (depending on which hosting service)

In conclusion: takes charge early, and Blogger do not need. But in the later development, so much cheaper.

Ease of use

Actually, the three equivalent.

To learn the basics, until you can write and publish writings, these three alternatives is equally easy.

But here are a few more considerations: and .org are easier to manage and has a more friendly dashboard view. Blogger slightly confusing, especially when you want to find a menu on the dashboard.

Even so, the difference is not much.

After using it for 1-2 days, you will get used.

This Blogger dashboard display:

And this WordPress dashboard display:


There are two things I want to discuss in this section.

First, if we look to see essentially without changing anything in it. WordPress (.com and .org) superior than Blogger.

This is because the basic look like Blogger are outdated.

Second, the display flexibility.

The most versatile is

There are thousands of free and paid templates that you can use. If you are still not satisfied, could also alter yourself to suit any taste.

In second place is Blogger.

Although the choice of templates in Blogger is not much, but looks can do on your own to taste if you understand HTML and CSS.

While most inflexible Only a limited number of templates and can not be changed anymore.

The rating for the display flexibility:
  • Blogger


If we look at the basic features of a CMS, the three equivalent. Equally could make a post and page, insert images, video, and other multimedia.

But bloggers have a weakness:

1 pages be limited only to the size of 1 MB. So you will not be able to make the first page that contains a lot of pictures.

If we look at it the flexibility, superior

In the self-hosted, you can add extra features with the help of plugins. There are hundreds of thousands of plugins that you can exploit it for free.

Because of its open source, we can also modify all of its features.

Rating for versatility features:
  • Blogger

Monetization with advertising

Because many people who want to create a blog to earn money by using advertising (eg Google AdSense), then this is needed to cover.

This is the main thing you need to know:

Hosted does not allow installing Google AdSense.

So you can not get revenue from ads if you use But you can still earn income by other means, for example selling products.

More like this to

Ads from advertising network (AdSense and the like) are not allowed
But you are allowed to provide ad slots manually
Sponsored posts are also allowed
If your website is already quite popular, you can install WordAds (a type of AdSense, belongs to WordPress)
If you are using WordPress VIP, advertising allowed
While in no problem because there is no set up, you can use the AdSense or any other advertising network.

For Blogger, because Google's own so it must be.

Ownership and control

Because of its hosted, and Blogger had a big problem:

The website is not 100% yours.

There are many limitations in it, including those that have been mentioned earlier. As can not change the template and add plugins.

In addition, there is one more important thing ...

... Your website can be removed at any time without notice.

Although rare and impossible without cause, but and Blogger have the right to remove your website.

If it is removed, the website that you create vanished.

No longer be restored. Even content that you have created can not be taken back.

The myths that often circulated

Since the number of people who consider in choosing a Blogger or WordPress, often there is misinformation out there.

This you should consider ...

Here are some of the false statements but frequently mentioned:

Myth 1: only for people who have experienced

Self-hosted it takes a bit of effort in the installation process.

But it is not at all difficult.

Even if you ask people who've tried these platforms, Blogger and WordPress, WordPress says they definitely easier to use.

Usually people like to say WordPress is complicated because there is a script, database, PHP codes, etc.

Yet like it do not you have the slightest touch.

Myth 2: Blogger safer than WordPress

Glance it seems reasonable ...

... Given because the blogger was his company as big as Google, while WordPress that we built ourselves.

But the reality is not well.

WordPress software is always updated regularly to keep the security loopholes closed.

Both are similar.

Provided you do not install the plugin or template pirated potentially infected.

Moreover, if your website is new, there will be no one who would idly hacking into your website.

Myth 3: WordPress often down or inaccessible

It's only when you choose a hosting unclear.

If you buy a hosting commonly used by people, there would be no problem.

Myth 4: often broken / error

Only when you idly fiddling with code in it.

The reason why and Blogger can not be broken because you can not change the code (in addition to HTML and CSS). will not be damaged if you do not tamper with things you do not know its function.

Myth 5: Only users who can succeed

Not true.

In features, appearance, and flexibility, is more superior than others.

But based website has no special rights compared to Blogger in terms of content creation and marketing (in addition to branding).

What is important is the content and the way we present the contents.

Blogger and can also be successful.

Despite its limited, but if you can create quality content, then your website will definitely be successful.

Those are some popular CMS comparison.

My writing above may seem less likely to choose than other options, but everything I write objectively.

WordPress Learning: Steps to Create Websites with WordPress for Beginners

For people who want to learn how to create websites, WordPress is the best choice.

Almost no website owners who are not familiar with WordPress.

The reason is because it's free, its not unlimited, and the learning process is very easy. Even if you had never held before any computer you will be able to create a website in 5 minutes.

That new WordPress inch greatness.

More on this page.

And what about Indonesia?

Indonesian occupies thethird position as the language most widely used in WordPress with a percentage of 2.4%. Only to lose in English and Spanish that is used by many countries.

This means that there is very much a WordPress-based website in Indonesia.

Why WordPress can be so popular?

The main reason is because the manufacturing process is very easy, as I stated earlier. Even those who had met the computer can create a website in 5 minutes with WordPress.

In addition, also for free.

But not only that, this is the main reason why large websites using WordPress:
  1. With WordPress, we do not need to build a website from scratch so much time and energy can be saved

With these reasons, since 2003 until now WordPress remains the most popular CMS.

At first, only use WordPress to create a blog ...

... But now WordPress is also often used as a website with other functions, such as community sites, buying and selling, directories, portfolio, company profiles, and others.

That glimpse of WordPress.

Without a longer length, let's start to the first chapter of this guide.

Membuat Motivasi Kebiasaan Mereka Para Blogger Pro

BAB 6 Membuat Motivasi

Blogger Pro Membuat Motivasi Kebiasaan mereka
Menjadi sukses mungkin tidak begitu mudah bagi semua orang tapi saya berpikir bahwa langkah pertama menuju sukses pada apa pun yang Anda lakukan (blogging termasuk) adalah untuk pertama memiliki motivasi untuk menjadi sukses.

Anda harus memiliki keinginan untuk berhasil dan setelah Anda mencapai ini, langkah berikutnya sekarang akan mencari tahu berbagai disiplin ilmu yang terbaik akan membantu Anda untuk membuat kemajuan dan mencapai tujuan akhir Anda dan kemudian membakar semua jembatan untuk memastikan bahwa tidak ada yang menghentikan Anda dari mendapatkan apa yang Anda inginkan.

Periksa teman saya Glen dari Viper Chill telah mengatakan tentang ini di posting baru berjudul: Cara Membuat Uang Online di 2016: Sebuah Pendekatan tak terduga (saya akan menyarankan Anda pergi membaca posting ini nanti).
Saya sudah melihat banyak blogger yang menyerah setelah beberapa bulan mulai blog mereka hanya karena mereka tidak ada untuk menunjukkan untuk itu, mereka telah menghabiskan banyak waktu, uang dan upaya untuk melihat apakah mereka dapat membuatnya melalui blogging tetapi pada akhirnya, itu tidak berhasil dan begitu ... ..they berhenti.

Yang benar adalah bahwa berhenti sepertinya selalu menjadi jalan keluar terbaik tapi itu tidak. Anda hanya akan berhenti jika Anda tidak sangat berkomitmen untuk tujuan Anda dan bahkan tidak tahu Anda 'mengapa' di tempat pertama. Anda harus, pertama dan terutama, menentukan mengapa Anda blogging dan jika Anda bisa melakukannya dengan benar, perasaan sendiri akan selalu membawa Anda melalui setiap kali Anda merasa bahwa hal-hal yang tidak bergerak dengan baik.

Ya, tidak ada yang memberitahu Anda bahwa jalan akan kemerahan dan jika ada yang pernah mengatakan kepada Anda bahwa, maka dia berbohong, namun itu bukan ilmu roket baik. Banyak orang telah melewati jalan yang sama dan jika Anda cukup termotivasi, Anda juga akan melewati suatu hari nanti, mungkin hanya memakan waktu tetapi pada akhirnya, itu pasti akan terjadi.

Semua yang diperlukan dari Anda adalah untuk selalu menemukan cara untuk memotivasi diri sendiri seperti Glen lakukan dengan gambar di bawah yang ia tergantung di dinding nya.
Seperti yang Anda lihat, Glen menggunakan gambar ini untuk selalu menjaga dirinya termotivasi dan setiap kali dia mulai merasa turun dan keluar, ia hanya mengambil sekilas pada mereka dan ia akan kembali ke jalur. Sekarang, saya tahu bahwa pendekatan ini tidak mungkin benar-benar bekerja untuk semua orang tapi kenapa tidak Anda hanya mencobanya dan melihat apakah itu akan bekerja untuk Anda atau tidak?

Dia juga menggunakan metode lain yang besar yang saya belum dengar. Glen menulis sebuah buku khusus untuk dirinya sendiri di mana ia menulis seluruh 'mengapa'. Menurut dia, buku praktis berisi semua saran dan tips yang paling penting ia percaya dan dapat mengikuti untuk mencapai definisi pribadi sendiri untuk sukses. Check it out dalam kata-katanya sendiri.
Wrapping Up: The Secrets of Blogger Populer

Aku sudah mengatakan itu semua. Anda perlu memutuskan apakah Anda benar-benar ingin sukses dengan blogging dan menikmati hidup seperti blogger pro atau tidak, itu panggilan Anda dan Anda salah satu yang akan memilih apakah akan menjawab atau tidak. Pada akhirnya, mereka yang berhasil adalah mereka yang berpikir mereka bisa.

Jadi menerima tantangan dan melakukan apa yang pro blogger lakukan agar menjadi pro juga.
