Having a website can benefit anyone. Even if you aren’t running a small business or company, a personal website can help support your goals. And with personal website hosting being more affordable than ever, there’s no reason not to get online. You don’t even have to be a designer or coder with integration for website builders such as WordPress. No matter what you’re trying to achieve, a personal website can help get you closer to where you want to be.
Blogs are extremely beneficial for most people and for a variety of reasons. Blogs can help boost your SEO score, show off your talents, process your life’s events, and even earn you some extra money on the side.
The main attraction of a blog is raising your SEO score. Your website’s Search Engine Optimization score helps determine how often it’s seen in search results and how close to the top of the list it’s shown. A higher score means more chances of new users finding you when searching for related keywords. Even if you don’t own a business, you’ll want to attract new readers to your website for other reasons. Having a blog can help you be discovered.
Personal Story Telling
Some blogs are treated like diaries or journals. But why write about your personal life on the internet instead of in a well-hidden book? There are hundreds of thousands of people around the world who are likely going through similar events in their lives. Sharing and connecting with others is an innate human desire. Having a blog on your personal website allows you to share your experiences with others, letting them learn from you and vice-versa.
Depending on the type of blog you run and how many viewers you get, a blog can be an excellent source of revenue. Selling advertising space on your blog is a great way to passively earn a little extra income whenever you make a new post. You can also form partnerships with sponsors by mentioning their products or linking to their websites from your blog post. If you enjoy writing your blog already, you’ll love being able to earn some extra money while doing it.
Personal websites make great spaces for professional portfolios. You could use a portfolio-building website that’s already around, such as Carrd or the like, but having your own personal website adds extra professionalism to your appearance.
Because of the powerful design tools of web builders such as WordPress, you don’t even have to be particularly tech-savvy to create a gorgeous and well-designed portfolio. You can have an about page that tells future clients about you, a product page detailing the services you provide, and links and files with examples of your work. Personal website hosting is the perfect option for freelancers and job-seekers looking to get a leg up on the competition.
Art Showcase and Shop
Artists in particular can benefit from having a personal website. There are hundreds of widgets and plug-ins that can help you create a beautiful gallery space that shows off your talent and hard work. There are just as many e-commerce applications that can help you set up and establish your own art shop. Being able to showcase your work and possibly make some extra cash is a great way to boost your brand and continue your artwork.
Personal Website Hosting Plans
A personal website has a host of benefits for any user. And with today’s advances in technology, personal website hosting has never been more affordable. Any plan is guaranteed to help you reach your goals.
Shared Hosting Plans
Shared hosting is the most affordable hosting plan available. Starting at around CA$3.5/month, you get access to part of a server shared with other personal website owners such as yourself. Although you don’t have as much control over the specs of your server, shared hosting plans are still flexible. You can upgrade or downgrade as needed to help ensure your website has the power it needs at a price you can afford.
The maximum shared hosting plan features:
- 50GB of Scalable SSD Disk Space
- Unlimited Bandwidth
- Unlimited Mailboxes
- Free Spam Filter
- Free Domain
- Free Rapid SSL Security
- Dedicated IP
- Server Management
WordPress Hosting Plans
WordPress is a powerful website-building tool that users all over the world use for their personal and professional websites. With hundreds of themes, apps, and widgets available to use, it’s the perfect tool to help your website look and act the way you want. When you combine that with the resources and experience of an established personal website hosting platform, you get one well-run website.
No matter which level of WordPress hosting plan you choose, you get access to:
- Thousands of free themes and plug-ins
- Advanced security and WordPress-tailored speed
- 24/7 support
- Free domain with yearly subscriptions
- Free email and spam filter
- Automatic updates for WordPress and security
- Automatic website backups
- Free website migration
Cloud Hosting Plans
Cloud hosting plans offer all the amazing benefits of shared hosting, with additional security and flexibility upgrades. Because your ‘server’ is made from connections to dozens of physical servers, your website will have fewer downtimes and outages. If a physical server suffers an issue, your cloud server can sever that connection and make a new one. Cloud servers also offer more customization in resources and power use, allowing you to change your plan on an as-needed basis.
