Please ensure that the webhost will allow you to set up WordPress and also allow you to add a MySQL database. WordPress ready made blogs cannot be used on WordPress.com hosted blogs.
We strongly recommend looking for Web Hosts that uses cPanel as file manager. This is where you manage your website’s files and programs.

**Recommended cPanel Enabled Webhosts**
1. HostGator. If you don’t have web hosting yet, we suggest Hostgator as it is still the best webhost that accommodates this type of blog packages and allows unlimited WordPress installation as well. Besides, it is one of the cheapest and yet reliable web hosting out there. See HostGator coupon codes here.
You also need to have a domain name ready for it (or can be purchased later). Domain name is the name of your website and is made up of a series of alphanumeric strings separated by periods. Ex. yahoo.com, premadeniches.com, moviesfb.com etc.
For those asking where to buy domain name, we recommend Namecheap.
Managing Your Sites
You can put the blog under a subdomain or under a directory within your existing domain just like what I did with most of my demo versions.
