This is a big mistake that you really don’t want to make
I recently made a BIG mistake online which has cost me dearly and it is the main reason why I want you to read this page so that you do not make the same mistake as me.
It hurts me so much to reveal this to you but my big mistake was to have my domain name and hosting account at the same place.
I purchased a website from 1st promotion and I used it under different domain names for about 4 years. When I first started using their service I had my domain name at Go Daddy.com.
I did not have any problems with Go Daddy at the time but once 1st promotion announced that they were starting their own domain name service it just made sense to me to use them instead.
Everything ran smoothly for just over 2 years until, one day I tried to Google search my website to check my page ranking and I was shocked to see that my account had been suspended.
I tried to contact 1st promotion numerous times without any response from them. I still don’t know why they suspended my account but, once I came to terms with this fact, it forced me in to making a decision that I had been putting off for years.
Starting My Own Blog
Yeah I finally bit the bullet and decided to start my own blog. For a number of years I had been reading and collecting all of the information that I could find about blogs.
My intention was to start one up as soon as possible but I kept putting it of because it seemed to much like hard work.
All I wanted was a nice easy to use and set up website which required the minimum amount of work from me. 1st promotion suited my needs perfectly.
Or so I thought…
As much as I liked my 1st promotion website, now that I have started blogging online I can honestly say that there is no comparison.
Blogging is the future and the old non inter-active stand alone websites are a thing of the past. So if I were to make one suggestion to you now, it would be to build all of your websites with WordPress.
You will find WordPress on most of the popular web hosting services on the Internet that offer the Cpanel inter-face.
Using and understanding Cpanel is an absolute must because once you set that baby up, you will be able to access all of those wonderful WordPress plug-ins that will make customizing your website so much easier.
So in suming up, if you are serious about making money from your own website then WordPress is the only game in town .
Unfortunately for me, I now have to go through the painful process of changing my previous domain name on all of my various articles, video’s, newsletter messages etc, that I have written online over to my new domain name.
This will be a pain in the ass of gigantic proportions let me tell you.
Who said making money online was easy?
certainly not me. Anyway I trust that you will learn from my painful and costly mistake and hopefully will be able to prosper from it in the future.
