Once you’ve made the decision to create your own website, the first thing you need is a domain name.
Your domain name should reflect the purpose of your blog. If you’re branding yourself, choose your name or the closest available version to it. If you’re promoting a product or service, choose words related to it, but keep it generic. That way, if the company or product changes, your domain name and blog will still be relevant.
My criteria for a domain name is …
• Easy to say.
• Easy to understand (especially on the phone).
• Easy to spell.
• Non-ambiguous (2, to or too).
• And the shorter the better.
.com is best. It’s the most popular.
.net is 2nd best.
When I get a .com domain, I always get the .net, too. I like having the pair of domains. I started this with my very first domain name. The .com name always forwards to my business and the .net forwards to the corporate site with the products. It’s a generic name, so even if I change companies, the name will still work.
Keeping your contact info the same is important as soon as you give someone your card, whether it’s paper or digital. You want that person to be able to find you, no matter how long it’s been.
I recommend GoDaddy for domain names. They are the biggest and most popular registrar. Live phone tech support is open 24/7. I always get answers and helpful advice.
If so, I would greatly appreciate it if you comment below and share on Facebook.
