How to Easily Move to a New Domain Name and Keep Your Hosting
There is no question that moving your website to a new domain name is one of the most exciting times in your web hosting journey! However, it can also be one of the most daunting tasks! In this article, we will discuss some of the methods you can use to easily move to a new domain name and keep your hosting. So, let’s get started.
Migrate Blogger Blogs To WordPress
One of the most common ways to move a website to a new domain is to migrate the content over to WordPress. This is a popular blogging platform where you can also run your own unique affiliate marketing programs and sell affiliate products. If you are already a blogger, this can be a great option to extend your blog’s reach to a wider audience while also making money online. You can use tools like Copyscape to easily and quickly find duplicate blog posts and content within your existing blog and then use the information to create an initial guide for establishing your new blog. This process can take a couple of days to a week depending on how large of a task you specify.
Find The Best Domain Extension For Your New Blog
After you have established your initial guide for migrating your blog to WordPress, it’s time to search for the best domain extension for your new blog. This is important because the.com domain extensions are considered “top level domains” and your new blog will most likely need a different domain name to remain “active” on the web. When you find a suitable alternative, it is imperative that you purchase the domain name and deploy the WordPress blog as soon as possible. It is also advisable to look into purchasing hosting that supports WordPress since this will make your transition much smoother.
Establishing A New Blog Name
If you are completely unfamiliar with establishing a new blog, the first step is to choose a name for your blog that is both memorable and representative of the kind of content you plan on publishing on the site. Ideally, you want to find a name that has both feminine and masculine spin to it so that when someone hears the name, they will immediately think of your online publication. Once you’ve found this perfect name, it’s time to register it with the search engines so that your new blog can be found online. The best practice here is to establish multiple blogs with the same name in different industries and locations so that you can increase the likelihood of being found when a person does a search on your chosen name. For example, one of your blogs could be for dining out in London while another focuses on fashion trends in Paris. If you are using Google’s Blogger platform, simply find the +”blogger” extension and then enter the keywords related to your blog’s content in the blog’s details page to get started. You can also use tools like Best Seo to easily find relevant keywords for your blog content and then use these keywords in your blog posts’ titles and content to improve the blog’s SEO and drive more traffic to your site.
Setting Up The Blogger Platform With The New Domain Name
Nowadays, there are a wide variety of blog posts, guides, and e-books available online that you can use to quickly get up and running with a new blog. Additionally, many hosting companies offer one-click Blogger installations that allow you to set up a new blog with the click of a button. In the future, we will discuss some of the more popular and helpful Blogger and WordPress resources that you can use to get started.
