Choosing best webhosting for Blogger blogs

Choosing web hosting for Blogger
To many, blogging is not just a hobby, but a business, a career. Time and again, we have emphasized the importance of keeping a business-minded approach in order to be successful. Being a business of sorts, blogging should also be treated as such. Businesses require investments, and need to grow. So does blogging. When people create a free blog, they don't usually think ahead, and instead end up restricting themselves. The most people would do is, buy a domain and leave it at that, especially Blogger users. They don't realize the importance of a proper web-hosting. Hence, in this post, we talk about why you should get a web-hosting, and which host to choose.

HostGator's Biggest February Discount - 35% OFF!

18 Comments so far

It's our third continuous happy year since 2011 when we first hosted all sites of our network under the protection of this blue alligator. The reason what makes HostGator folks special is their great discount offers on special occasions. The coupon code that we received this month will give all MBT readers a straight 35% OFF on all shared hosting, reseller and dedicated server plans. To make it more simple, a 3 year standard registration of a hatchling plan will grant you a discount of over $62, $100 for baby plan and amazingly $163 discount for Business Pan. Registering directly from elsewhere would give you only 20% discount, therefore you still have over a week left to utilize this great opportunity to kick start a new online venture.
Note: Offer Expires on 28 FEB 00.00 US Time

XHTML To HTML: Blogger Template Conversion

36 Comments so far

XHTML to HTML Blogger templatesI already shared how a dynamic XHTML BlogSpot template could be converted into a blank Static HTML Template, but what if you needed to keep the same design of your blog and only remove the Dynamic objects like widgets. This could easily be achieved by carefully converting the XHTML format of code structure to Basic HTML 4.0 File. This will enable you to even embed or add a PHP or code inside the Cloned BlogSpot design in HTML format. A live example is our Contact page with a PHP contact Form. It is not possible to add PHP inside blogger templates because no direct access to web hosting ftp account is available so far. When you visit our contact page, you will feel like you are still in BlogSpot template environment but in reality its only a Cloned HTML design of the original template. The steps today are interesting and fun to try. Make sure you have a webhosting to try today's tutorial. We are using hostgator as our blog web host to host all our files and resources.

13 Comments so far

CPanel has become a very popular web hosting platform / software, and once you migrate to your own domain or buy a new one, your hosting company will most likely provide you with the cPanel software pre-installed on your domain for your ease. In fact, it has now become the industry standard for hosting companies. For those of you who are acquainted with web-hosting, you will know how important such a software can be. It puts a lot of tools and features at your finger tips, thus allowing you to stop worrying about the management and concentrate on the domain itself. But for beginners, especially those who have no prior web-hosting experience, it could be a challenging and confusing environment. Here are some basic settings every beginner should set to ensure his domain is safe and secure.

Why Host Blogger Blog on HostGator?

95 Comments so far

blogger blog on hostgatorBlogging is your business which requires investment both in terms of energy, time and money. As time goes on your little blog will grow and draw attention of search engines and social media in terms of traffic. Visitors enjoy when you offer something unique and something that may help them and provide them with a reason to visit your blog. I started blogging in 2009 with blogger and as time passed I started enjoying it and this hobby turned into a profession. I needed a reliable company to help me expand this little blog so that tomorrow we could add new tools and resources to it. Readers deserve the right to be provided with an open forum where they could exchange ideas and interact more openly with one another. Off-topic questions often result in deletion and therefore a Forum becomes important when you want to keep things simple and clean.  Google Blogs unfortunately doesn't allow access to the server where your files are hosted for free. Which means you can not create sub domains for your blog where you could add a Forum, portfolio page or services page. Thus a reliable web hosting company becomes a necessity.
Note: This is part1 of our series on choosing Best Hosting for your Blogs. I will be sharing my personal experiences here, technical details, personal help, web hosting plans and discount coupon codes.

Why We Migrated this Blogger Blog To Hostgator?

33 Comments so far

migrate blogger to hostgatorMBT went down yesterday for 24 hours because we have made some major improvements to how this blog will operate  in future. I would like to thank everyone for their consistent feedback and for bearing with us during this maintenance. We are in no way interested in upgrading it to Wordpress or any other platform. This blog will remain hosted at Blogger and all its posts, image data and feeds will keep on operating from servers. I personally took this huge risk of transferring domain from its previous registrar to HostGator because I wanted to add some new features to this little blog. Readership is increasing and I am not able as an individual to do justice with dozens of queries posted everyday. We are looking forward to build an active, lively and useful community for newbie bloggers.  In order to bring more exciting ways of improving the standard of blogspot blogs we needed extra storage space and sub domains. All this is possible with an extra premium space where we can save our resources and introduce new online tools. In order to make this possible we transferred our domain to Hostgator and purchased an extra space.
