Before you can live on your blog, you have to create it. In this article we will see the choices available to us and why I chose to create my blog on WordPress.

  • Autonomy, you can make all the desired changes yourself.
  • Reliability and security, the company has its own code and secures it.


  • The creation of the blog takes time.
  • You are the tenant of the site, it does not belong to you. You will not be able to export it if you want to change the solution.
  • Platforms have limited scalability. They develop their own modules but do not have them all.
  • Difficulty for SEO.

How to get a domain name?

To obtain a domain name, have storage space and a responsive site, you will have to choose a host. There are many. For example WordPress offers to host you. According to the comparisons that I made and the advice of anyone from the experience PlanetHoster stands out by offering the best quality / price and offers continuous assistance.

My choices :

I chose to use WordPress because it has more advantage than platforms and as it is the most used there is a lot of development opportunity. Concerning the defects they are easily contournable thanks to a formation. In addition I chose PlanetHoster for my accommodation.
