If You have a Domain in your mind Then better to Directly buy it (It Ranks more than EMD’s if done SEO properly), Though For Peoples who wanna target specific keywords on their website I suggest below idea

Now Before Buying a domain name for your website, ask yourself some questions like- on Which Topic You are Going to post regularly on your site, What are the Related keywords to your Topic.

Make a list of those keywords in your notebook which came to your mind and also collect ideas from other sources such as social medias, YouTube, Pinterest, Google.

What i actually wanna say to you is, From The list of synonyms of your domain you have collected, Choose a very relevant word/synonym for your website which you wanna Target and you think that is easy to remember.

What is Exact Matched Domain

These Type of Domain I call them to EMD(Exact Matched Domain), I have suggested this to you because they are easy to rank on Google than Non EMD Domains and people search that word directly, So Google Also Matches searched Keywords in domain, In this way It will helps You!!

Let me Show You an Example of EMD- If your keyword is about writing on “SEO services” then,

seo.com, seoservices.com or bestseoservices.com are called EMD, These are the words people search in Google and Help you to rank your website better in Future.

One more Example I show you, if you search “Latest Gadgets Review” in google the searched #1 page shows you the websites containing the keyword You searched on Google.

After buying domain the next step is to Good Hosting for storing data of your website.

How to Choose Best Hosting?

You can also see free hosting services on Internet claiming to host your website free of cost, But that is very bad idea to Host on Free Hosting Servers, Because They give you slow speed, Many shutdowns a day and even can delete all your data without your consultant.

Means there is not any Guarantee for your work that you done for your website by investing many hours a day, they can destroy all your work anytime, Also There are some more restrictions like Limited Hosting Space, Unwanted ads on your site etc.

However Google Blogspot hosting is much better if you have No Money for Hosting, Because it is more trusted, You will Get more security but it is more complex to manage, like plugins, SEO and custom scripts are very difficult to install in Google’s Blogspot Hosting. That’s why i am suggesting you to choose wordpress!!

There are other More huge disadvantages of using free Hosting services, So The Best ones are paid but a little bit more costlier, But I Guarantee After Purchasing a Good Hosing You will never face any problem from Hosting side + They give you like support services, much freedom to post and many other things.

Hosting plans are yearly or minimum of 3 months from Hostgator Hosting, Means You have to Purchase Hosting for directly 1 year from Hosting providers. Also Hostgator gives 3 Months pack too, But I will suggest you to buy 1 year Hosting plan from reputed companies also they Gives 30 days 100% money back Guarantee!!

So The Top Hosting Providers are Bluehost, Hostgator, Namecheap, SiteGround, iPage, Godaddy Hosting any many more Hosting you can find in Google, But the Best ones i mentioned here others you can see in image below.

How to Buy Hosting for my Website?

Bluehost is best and most costly even if You buy from Bluehost, they gives you free domain (any available extension domain which you want) with Hosting for 1 year (After Charges applies like in Godaddy).

So i prefer every Beginner to get cheaper Hosting from Namecheap or  Hostgator Hosting Plan.

After You go there, Depends on the needs you can purchase a plan and pay bill this will costs you according to the select tenure.

You may ask which Hosting Plan Should buy, For website Beginners I suggest To Buy starter plan for at-least 6 months package,

Because Ranking your website take sometime(more than 1 or 2 months). i.e there need much patience and Work For your website to be a successful blogger, You need Better Hosting to Grow Your Business.

However If you have decided to purchase starter plan or any Hosting plan which does not gives you SSL free, Then do not worry about SSL. Here also I Tell You How i get Free Cloudflare SSL Certificate to my website.
