After deciding to switch from Blogger to a Self-Hosted WordPress site, the next step was to find a reliable hosting company.
Choosing a Hosting Provider
I did a lot of research and in the end, I decided to go with iPage as they had a good offer and pretty good reviews.
I must admit that, besides a couple of hiccups, I have been quite happy with them and I have never changed to any other hosting company. They also have a reasonably good customer service. They are available 24/7 via chat and phone and they are also available on Facebook and Twitter, which is a plus.
Creating a Domain and Going Live
So, once you have decided on a Hosting Provider, you need to pick a domain and register it. Selecting the right name was not easy. I wanted something that represented me, and I wanted it catchy and short, so that people could remember it easily… that’s how I chose Manu’s Menu.
iPage (and many other providers) have a one click WordPress install and that made having my site up and running a matter of minutes!

I can’t believe it, I too chose IPAGE. I just am new to this whole blogging thing but they were great. I tried to choose based on feedback from customers and they were really nice. I just hope I can learn to be a good blogger as some of you who have been so supportive of me . I am so proud to be among such courageous women who want another woman to succeed. So thanks everyone. Msnu you have truly inspired me and I love your blog and your recipes. From my heart, I Thank you!
