Yesterday, while having a conversation with a client, he asked me a question saying ‘Is there any advantage in a blog been hosted and is mine hosted? I hear bloggers talk about host and all that but I don’t know what they are saying. Please is mine hosted?‘ I replied thus: ‘*Smiles, hosted Google AdSense account or hosted blog?‘ and he answered ‘both‘.
Now, I wouldn’t say the client is been naive. As a matter of fact, I kinda like this. He is eager to knowing what hosted Google AdSense account and hosted WordPress blog means and that’s why he asked me. Although the answers are right there on Google search but I made him understand what they meant and I wanna do same here.
Which should be start off with first, Hosted Google AdSense Account or Hosted WordPress blog? Am pretty sure you’d go with the AdSense since it has some money talks engrossed in it and I kinda trust people when it comes to talks involving money lol.

What Is Hosted WordPress Blog?
WordPress in general has two blogging platform, the free WordPress and the paid WordPress. The free WordPress is the one created via www.wordpress.com while the paid is via www.WordPress.org. Please don’t get me wrong. When I said paid WordPress, I don’t mean you will pay the WordPress team in other to use their blogging platform but you will need to get a hosting account from an hosting company in other to use the WordPress.org blogging platform and getting an host could cost you some penny.
Since these WordPress blogs created using wordpress.org requires you having an hosting account, they are termed ‘Hosted WordPress blog‘. Another name for them is ‘self hosted WordPress Blog‘. Hence, whenever anyone is talking about a self hosted WordPress blog or hosted WordPress blog, he or she isn’t talking about the free WordPress, instead, they are referring to the premium WordPress which you installed via your web-hosting account.
