Valparaiso, Indiana, United States About Blog The Minimalist Woman blog began on Blogspot in January 2010 as a way to document her efforts at decluttering and simplifying her lifestyle. Meg's experience with decluttering brought about some surprising realizations and the blog's subject matter expanded to encompass thoughts on consumerism and its personal and cultural impact. Since Mar 2010 Blog minimalistwoman.com

Once the platform is successfully set up, site owners can begin browsing the theme marketplace, previewing site content before publishing to the web. Find the perfect theme, incorporate any plugins you'd like to extend your site's functionality, and begin drafting your first post! Whether you're building a blog or an online store — hosting on a shared server or your very own VPS — you can have a new WordPress site online in less than an hour. It only has to take a few minutes, but we're no stranger to perfectionism.
A domain name is the name of your website or your website address. It's the place where users will find you on the Internet and it's unique to you or your business. Each domain name is made up of two parts. For example, our own domain name is names.co.uk, the first part is the name we chose 'names' and the second part is the extension 'co.uk'. Before domain names, web addresses were made up of a long string of numbers.

With our dedicated servers, you rent an entire server. This is optimal for people that have very high traffic to their websites or need to setup their server in a very specific way. Not everyone needs to have a fully dedicated web server however. If you’re just getting started with your website, you can save quite a bit of money if you rent a small portion of the server. Shared hosting is when you share a portion of the server with other users rather than rent an entire server to yourself.


Think of the name you want to register. The answer is typically your company or website name. It is best to keep your domain name short and easy to understand. Say it out loud, and make sure it sounds great. Next, search to see if it is available. If the name you desire is taken with the .com top-level domain, there are hundreds of others available. Finally, add the top choices to your cart and complete the domain registration.
All of that said, I really want to give goal setting a real shot this year! Without specific goals, it can be easy to end up on a hamster wheel or to feel lost at sea. Using the method I find works best, I set out to create some printables to help organize my ideas. I am heading into this process with a mindset of why these goals are important to ME! It can be easy to select goals to fit a specific mold, or generic resolutions that have been set by society, but doing so doesn't ultimately aid in personal growth. I am also keeping in mind that I am not trying to give myself a total makeover, or change who I am at my core. The entire point of goal setting is to look at opportunities for improvement and to drive myself to succeed.
I was running a small private weather website in AWS and the satellite images got "picked up" by a news website and they regularly use them during major weather evenings. AWS' 12c per GB of outbound network traffic made things expensive and VPSServer makes this a lot more manageable and has excellent data volumes included with the price of the VPS. I also get many more CPUs for the price compared to AWS, so I am a happy customer.

Bluehost also offers three managed WordPress plans, with prices ranging between $19.95 and $49.95 per month. The prices of these plans are quite a bit higher but they include a lot of advanced features. A few of the highlights include daily scheduled backups, malware detection and removal, Jetpack Premium, business review tools, PayPal integration, priority customer support, and more. Some of these features are only included with the more expensive packages, however, you get very good value even with the cheapest plan.

shared hosting


Although WordPress offers the best CMS out there right now, it’s hard to recommend the company to anyone who is looking for a good hosting provider. At least not in its current state. WordPress is more expensive than many other companies, including Bluehost, and doesn’t offer too much in return for your money. You’re generally better off signing up with a different provider and building your website on the WordPress CMS than using the company’s own hosting services.
