blog service

(redirected from blog host)

blog service

A website that lets anyone write and publish their own blog that is hosted on its servers. With pre-designed templates providing the blogger with a choice of page look and feel, the blog host typically offers a free, ad-supported service and a premium service without the ads. A common option is the use of a private domain name instead of one appended to the blog service; for example, freedmantalkstech.com rather than freedmantalkstech.wordpress.com. See blog and blog publishing software.
