Is your blog a blogger platform right now? Have you got very special information about blogging on this platform? If your answer is yes, then you can do your Blogspot blog (blogger blog) on the Google Translate page.

My blog was on the first blogger. Later, when I got more information about blogging, I changed my blog to WordPress Margurite or migrate.

Initially, Google’s blogger platform is great for new users to learn about blogging because blogger is available in hosting and domain free. You do not need to spend a buck too much.

But if you are serious about blogging and want to make it a good way to make money, then you should transfer your blog from blogger to WordPress par.

Why did I transfer a WordPress paradise from a blogger?

There are a lot of limitations on the Blogger platform compared to WordPress. You are not completely controlled because Blogger is free. It is controlled by the blogger’s team. You also need coding to manage BlogSpot blog. The worst thing that I find on the blogger blog is the comment box. I do not like the comment box at all.

There is an unlimited feature on WordPress compared to Blogger. In this, you will not need any special coding. On WordPress, you will find a free plugin which makes WordPress blog very easy to manage. On WordPress, you will find more storage space, bandwidth and other options according to the plan.

1. Domain :

For WordPress blog, you must have your own domain name. The domain name for your blog or website can be bought by GoDaddy or any other good company.

2. Web Hosting:

WordPress blog requires hosting Bluehost and Hostgator are very good hosting provider company. You can purchase these from your blog for hosting. Initially, you can buy hosting at very cheap prices.

3. Installing WordPress Blog on Your Hosting:

After purchasing the hosting from any company, WordPress has to install on your hosting.
