I request you to start a Professional Blog which will give you passive income and can help you become financially independent.
You are already too late, A lot of people have started their own Professional Blogs and started making really good money.
I started this Blog in 2016 and never looked back, For me making money from Blog took a very long time, To be Precise for more than a year.
Let’s get straight to the point, Starting Hobby Blog and Starting Professional Blog are completely different scenarios.
To start a Professional Blog, Things get a lot different, I will try to make it clear and simpler, So stay focused.
How to start a Professional Blog
To start a Professional Blog, You need 3 basic resources.
- Domain ( Godaddy or Namecheap )
- Web Hosting ( Siteground or Kinsta )
- Professional Theme ( Mythemeshop, Elegant Themes )
After Purchasing all these, You need to Install Self Hosted WordPress on your Web Hosting Panel, If you are Unable to Install just Contact me or Visit my Free WordPress Blog Setup Page, And I will do it for free.
To make it Specific, I am curating for the people who are in the Budget and people who have decent money.
For the People who are in the Budget
I am Recommending the Best and Reliable WordPress Hosting, I have personally used it and I can assure you that you will never face any kind of problems.
The Domain from Godaddy or Namecheap
Do not Purchase Domains from Web Hosting Providers, Always purchase the domain from Godaddy or Namecheap as it will be easy to change web Hosts and update nameservers.
Conclusion – $ 10 – 15 for Domain
Recommended Web Hosting
So, The keeping Budget in mind, I would highly recommend you to Siteground to Purchase Web Hosting, Never comprise a good web hosting even if it costs more.
That’s the biggest mistake newbies make when starting blogging.
With Every Siteground Plan you Purchase, You get Free SSL, Premium CDN From Cloudflare, Advanced Security features and all basic stuff.
Siteground also has 1 Click WordPress Installation which is better for Non- Technical people for installing Wordpress.
I will recommend you go with Siteground’s grow big plan – $ 5.95/mo plan where you can Install multiple domains.
Conclusion – $ 71 Investment for Web Hosting.

Recommended WordPress Theme
Premium WordPress theme is a must because of the Security, But things have changed now, A lot of free WordPress Themes in the market have come which are similar to premium WordPress themes in performance.
I am currently using Astra Theme which is very responsive and have enough Blocks and widgets.
Conclusion: $ 0 Investment on Theme
Final Investment – $15 + $ 71 + $0 = $86 ( INR 6000+ )
In that $ 86 USD you can have a good meal, you can buy drinks or do something else and finish it, But Investing it wisely can make you a millionaire, So the Choice is yours.
People who have Decent Budget
In this case, don’t make any compromises on quality and resources needed, This will only help you achieve results faster.
You need the same things as mentioned above, But some minor changes in Hosting, Themes, and WordPress Plugins.
1. Domain Name
Register your Desired Domain from Godaddy or Namecheap.
Investment = $10 – $15
Never on Web Hosting if you have good money, Your Web Hosting is going to decide the Performance of your WordPress Blog.

For Business Blogs – Genesis Themes Including Framework is perfect.
Investment= $ 60- $ 250 = $ 250
If you need additional Customization, I recommend go with Elementor Page builder or Thrive Architect.
Few other Paid Tools Recommended
