I would like to share the most affordable way to start a selfhosted WordPress blog, using Namecheap domain with Hostgator hosting plan. This is what I would do if I would start my first blog for the first time.
Links below are affiliate links, it means, if you sign up with the links, I will get comission, as I am an affiliate, but you don't have to use the links.
