Starting a Movie Website: Determine its Platform

Determining your movie website’s platform is one of the most important steps in starting a movie website. There are many options to choose from: WordPress, Blogger, Typepad, SquareSpace, Tumblr, and Vox. Pick your poison. Once you have chosen your movie website platform, you are now faced with another dilemma. If you choose a website platform that is not free, that requires website hosting, you will now have to select a website host for your movie website. If you choose a free platform, you do not have to choose a website host and you can beginning movie blogging almost immediately. We have already discussed the great debate of Hosted Websites vs. Free Blogging Services (read through it carefully) so there is no need to reiterate it. Determining your movie website’s platform, whether it is a free service or one that requires hosting will also determine your next step in starting a movie website.
