If you have a strong mind for creating a blog or website. First, you have to choose the best blogging platform that is reliable and suitable for you.

You don’t want to learn a coding language to develop a website. Because a blogging platform will make it easier for you to create a website which is easily customizable without having any coding knowledge.

You have to just drag and drop And copy and paste work for creating a website as you want.

So I’m going to show you the list of blogging platform which is best for creating a blog or website. You can choose from them which suitable and affordable for you.

Domain and Hosting

Before we are going to see the list. The important thing is to choose the perfect domain and hosting.

Domain

How to Choose the Best Blogging Platform in 2021

The domain is the web address of your websites like Google.com, which is the IP address of your website in the form of URLs to identify the particular website or web pages. For example: https://www.vifree.in /.

You can choose your domain and hosting that suits and affordable for you. There are many domain names like .com, .net, .org, .edu, .in,etc… Each of the domain name is used for several website creations. Because

.com: represents commercial, .com was the first top-level domain in common use. …

.net: represents a network

.edu: represents education

.org: represents organization and so on…

There are many domain names that suit the niche. For example: if you work in an education niche you can use the .edu domain name.

if you want to reach your content worldwide then you have to choose the .com domain name which is the top-level domain. I also suggest you this domain name only.

So your website can reach worldwide and get more visitors from worldwide.

Hosting

Hosting is the storage of your files and maintaining all of your files uploaded to your website to fast accessible while searching in the internet. Also, it is the source to make and customize your website.

As with domain name, Hosting also has many types like

Shared web hosting service. One’s website is placed on the same server as many other sites, ranging from a few sites to hundreds of websites.

Virtual Dedicated Server.

Dedicated hosting service.

Managed hosting service.

Colocation web hosting service.

Cloud hosting.

Clustered hosting.

Grid hosting

And so on…

If you are new to buy hosting services. I prefer you to buy a shared hosting service that is cost-effective and fast.

It is useful to understand hosting services and its uses. After you get proper knowledge about the use of hosting, later you can change to a preferred hosting service.

Many service providers are available online where you can buy your domain and hosting service which suits your budget.

Service providers like Hostinger, Go daddy, Bluehost, etc are best in providing domain and hosting services.

 

Here, the list

  1. WordPress.org
  2. Wix
  3. Squarespace
  4. Web.com
  5. Blogger

 

1) WordPress.org – Blogging Platform

How to Choose the Best Blogging Platform in 2021

It is the best platform among all of them. More than 40% of websites are WordPress-powered websites only on the internet. Because it is an open-source free blogging platform software.

WordPress.org allows you to create a website and customize your website or blog within few more minutes without any coding skills.

You have to signup for WordPress.org in your hosting service provider. The best part of WordPress is the plugins that support it. Because you can do anything that is not available on other platforms.

Why I’m putting WordPress.org instead of WordPress.com. because wordpress.com gives basic hosting services for free. it gives custom Domain, hosting services, and other premium services for paid users.

In WordPress.com we can’t access all plugins. If you want to access to all plugins. you have to pay to unlock those themes.

Pros and Cons of WordPress.org

 

Pros for WordPress.org:

  • WordPress.org is a very popular blogging platform for creating personal or business blogs.

 

  • It’s easy, customizable, and user-friendly to use.

 

  • WordPress blogs can be accessed on mobile devices too.

 

  • WordPress blogs are completely free. No cost at all.

 

  • It supports open-source software and that makes it a highly reliable platform which can’t be hacked easily.

 

cons for WordPress.org:

  • WordPress offers its users the ability to easily add content to websites, which is great, but it comes with a downside: spam bots can use this feature to automatically post junk content to your website.

 

  • You might need some extra plugins or a theme to make your website look good and work properly.

 

 

2) Wix – Blogging Platform

Wix is among the most widely used website-building apps. Whether you wish to create a simple site for yourself or a small business, Wix is a good option to be considered.

This platform is designed to give you all the tools you need to create modern, mobile-optimized web pages for your business, friends, and family.

The platform will allow you to customize the mobile version of your sites with a number of design templates that are very easy to use.

With Wix, you can also create and maintain e-commerce sites and blogs.

 

However, before moving on and in order to use it in the best way possible, you should be acquainted with the pros. and cons. of this site designing option.

Pros and Cons of Wix

Pros for Wix:

 

  • With a Wix website, it is possible for users to increase their visibility online by publishing their site on search engines such as Google or Yahoo! and on social media sites such as Facebook.

 

  • You can also use your Wix website to sell products and services to customers.

 

Cons for Wix:

  • Free account is limited as they show ads and their brand in your website.
  • Limited to third apps which are free.
  • Templates cannot be changed once you chose them.

 

3) Squarespace – Blogging platform

 

Squarespace is another Wonderful gorgeous blogging platform. This is best suitable for Photographers, Artists, and Graphic designers.

It is easy to set up and customizes your site very quickly. This platform also having both free and paid services. It comes with good e-commerce tools and integrations.

Pros and Cons of Squarespace

Pros for Squarespace:

  • Reliable: Squarespace is a very reliable platform for creating a store. Most bumps in the road are easily remedied using their customer service.

The platform is extremely easy to use – it has great editor features that are intuitive and easy to pick up but also offers the flexibility of HTML coding as an advanced feature for those who are familiar with coding.

With a few clicks, or even without reading the directions, you can create a beautiful (and professional) website without having any prior web design skills.

 

  • Beautiful designs: I was initially drawn to Squarespace because their design was clean, crisp, and simple (quite similar to my own aesthetic).

Cons for Squarespace:

  • it isn’t free. However, it’s a great website builder for beginners (and experts!) to create a professional site, with free integrations and easy (but advanced) options for customizing your site. It also offers a beautiful template library and excellent e-commerce support.

 

  • For starters, Squarespace does not have its own custom domain service. You’ll need to use another company to purchase your domain name. This means additional fees beyond the original cost of Squarespace, but it also lets you pick from a wider variety of domains. If you want to use your own domain name with Squarespace, we recommend using Namecheap.com to find your domain and then appending “.squarespace” after purchasing it.

 

  • it has only limited features for e-commerce and other sites.

 

4) Web.com – Blogging platform

If you like the features that come with their web builder, you can purchase easily through the very same interface you used to create your trial site. The best part of using web.com for creating and establishing your online presence is that you can get started as low as $3.95 per month.

Cons for Web.com:

  1. No more third-party plugins like WordPress.
  2. it is not powerful as WordPress. Because if you want to switch your website to another platform, it becomes more difficult.

 

5) Blogger – Blogging platform

How to Choose the Best Blogging Platform in 2021

A lot of bloggers out there use Blogger, as it’s one of the most popular free, online blog sites. It’s really easy to set up, with a clutter-free dashboard and powerful blogging features.

you can’t view your site when you’re logged out – and some features cost extra.

To name a few, you have to pay to have more than 100 images on your site or to buy credits to display adverts.

If you’re serious about starting a blog, you should take a look at these alternatives instead.

 

Pros and Cons of Blogger

Pros for Blogger:

  • An advantage of using Blogger is saving time user does not have to spend on making the design and layout of the site. Blogger is a simple to use and easy-to-learn application because it already has a very convenient interface, so when you will start using it, you will be able to create your own blog with your own style at once.

 

  • Blogger also provides a few standard pre-formatted templates, so you can select a design that you like.

 

  • Another advantage is that Blogger allows you to write posts in any language, although in the beginning, you should think about building a blog that will be used only in English, if later you will decide to translate your blog into another language, this will be an easy task.

 

  • And another plus is that all blogs can be extended with addons from third parties.

 

Cons for Blogger:

  • Security – When it comes to security, Blogger may not be quite as safe as you’d like. It’s not uncommon for websites on Blogger to get hacked and the blogs themselves are not secured with SSL. If you’re planning on selling products online through your blog, this could pose a problem for you.

 

  • You can not use the domain and subdomain names of your own choice, ie: yourdomain.blogspot.com, your subdomain.blogspot.

 

  • The Major problem is, you must have some coding skills to customize your site in blogger.

 

I give you the list of best blogging platforms which you can choose in 2021. In my opinion, if you’re new to blogging.

Then I suggest you choose the free version of the blogging platform for you to learn the process of blogging website creation and working.

When you get comfortable and get some earnings from it and it’s time to upgrade your blogging site by buying custom Domain names and Hosting plans.

In the starting stage, I use Blogger and WordPress.com. Both are free to use and SEO-friendly while comparing to other free platforms. Also, consider Wix. Com free version.
