If the idea of creating a website with a third-level domain does not excite you and you are willing to invest a few dozen euros a year to maintain your Web space, then you can consider the possibility of creating a blog with Paid WordPress: here are some of the companies that allow you to buy a Web space and then install WordPress on the latter.
Aruba is an Italian company that offers domains, hosting and cloud services, including a ready-to-use WordPress package that, with just a few clicks, allows you to create your own blog with the famous CMS.
To proceed with the purchase of your web space on Aruba, connected to the website of the Italian company, enter the name you want to be displayed in the URL of your blog in the domain name field, choose the extension you prefer and press the Search button. In the new open page, check the availability of the chosen domain and press the Continue button.
Now, locate the WordPress Hosting section, choose the service that best suits your needs (by clicking on the i button you can view the details of each package), specify if you intend to purchase added services by selecting those you are interested in in the Select additional services section and presses on the Continue button. To learn more, you can read my guide to Aruba’s WordPress hosting.
You should know that on Aruba, you can also create a WordPress blog by purchasing a Linux Hosting (or Windows & Linux Hosting) and a MySQL database separately. In doing so, however, you will have to proceed with the installation of WordPress, as I indicated in my guide on how to install WordPress on Aruba.
Once you have made your choice, if you have a promotional code, enter it in the Enter a discount code field and press the Continue button, after which, if you are already an Aruba customer, enter your login details in the Login and Password fields and click on Login button, otherwise I press on the Register option and enter the requested data in the Data holder section.
To complete the order, enter your billing information in the appropriate fields, choose a payment method by putting a check mark next to one of the options between PayPal, Credit Card, Bank Transfer and Bulletin, put the check marks required for accept the conditions of the service and click on the Continue button. Within a few moments, you will receive an order confirmation email with the data to proceed with the payment.
