Hey there, welcome to your new home on the web! Choosing a name for your blog is one of the essential things branding-wise. This is where your travel blog starts. Think of an URL (website address), including words like ‘travel’ might help SEO-wise, it’s good to remember that the most successful travel blogs don’t even have this.

Test the availability of the URL on domainr.com. When a .com is taken, try to switch it with .blog or another extension that suits your country like .nl (Netherlands). Web hosting is a computer somewhere around the world that hosts your website. Starting a travel blog with a good host is important. Siteground is our number one choice to host a WordPress blog. 24/7 support and a super-easy WordPress installation without having to work in difficult codes.
