The Soul Of Young Bloggers — Restrictions They Face
CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Blogging is one among the passions and hobbies of millions around the world. At least 10% of them are below 18, reports suggest. But the sad side of the story is that, the registration of domains and web hosting services is available only for the ones above 18. Thus thousands of young bloggers are still facing problems taking their blog into a new level.
I am also one among such bloggers. As I am below 18, I’m not able to register a custom domain other than the free ones. They can’t even try to use the best web hosting pack available. Thus the status of my blog has been tied up during the past few years. A custom domain is a must for today’s blogging system. As most of us look for custom domains rather than sub-domains. But the truth behind such a scenario is that sub-domain registered blogs have better quality posts as they are working hard to gain visitors. This system should be changed. Minimum age for registering a domain must be reduced to 10.
Thus the young and talented bloggers around us will be able to pull up their blog’s ranking upwards and thereby they will be able to fulfill their dreams and aspirations. Hope that this post will raise a social cause and the authorities would take necessary steps for the uplift of such young stars.
Another sad issue is that we, the young bloggers are still unable to display ads. As the popular ad network – Adsense and the providers allows it only after the age of 18. But this criterion has some legal explanations and logic thus let us keep it aside. But the case of domains is not like that.
It is not at all difficult to find such illegal registrars and resellers. If you need a domain or ad-sense account before the age of 18, it is as simple as getting a lollipop. The illegal resellers are that common. But due to the social responsibilities as a blogger, we try our level best to stay away from such malpractices. But the young generation may not be able to resist such offers for long. So I think that this is a social issue too.
Let us dream that the authorities would grant permission to the young generation to acquire domains and hosting legally.
Admin’s Note : HBB is a democratic site and hope you will love to have a different perspective on the issue.
