# Website Main Topic Idea::
Seriously, People Always worried to pick a topic for their website.
Yeah. I know it’s hard to start something new that’s why people are worried.
When you thinking the main topic for your website just focus on Two Things.
1. Something Specific:: Your Website should be focused on something specific .
If your website content is Photography related, Don’t put movie related content in your blog.
Be specific on the main topic.
2. Passion:: The second important thing is passion.
Before, Choosing the Main Topic for Your Website;
Ask yourself Four small questions.
* Am I interested in starting a long-term project on this topic?
** Can I easily produce 60+ content ideas?
*** Do I love this topic enough?
*** Can I think of any unique angles to stand out in this Topic?
For example, my own blog. I like to blog about WordPress and WordPress related topics, such as earning a passive income, themes and web development. I am rather passionate about this, so I am able to produce 60+ content ideas that help my audience understand how to use WordPress.
Note:: When you pick the main topic then you have to pick related sub-topic to produce content.
I hope you got it first step very clearly.
# Domain And Hosting::
This is a very Simple and Important part.
Your domain name is your Brand.
So Before taking a perfect Domain name just follow these 5 Steps.
1. Don’t Pick Big Domain name. [ Choose Short and Memorable Name ]
2. Don’t Pick an Exact Domain name with your Topic.
3. Easy to spell your Domain Name.
4. Get a .com Domain
5. Online tool:: http://www.namemesh.com/
Without web hosting, your Website can’t be seen online.
Web hosting means “providing storage space and access for websites”.
I highly recommend Siteground Hosting. They are the biggest and most well-known hosting company and offer packages for as low as $3.99/month (which is super low).
Siteground Company that allows to you installs WordPress with just 1 click. So Really Amazing! When you first time registers to Siteground website they offer Free domain.

What is a WordPress Theme?
A WordPress theme changes the design of your website, often including its layout. Changing your theme changes how your site looks on the front-end, i.e. what a visitor sees when they browse to your site on the web.
