What's in a Name?

Creating your own personal domain name is ideal when you own your own home business. This is a way for your niche market to find and connect with you. It also enables you to market yourself on the web as well as off line marketing with an ideal business feel.

How To Get a Domain Name?
You might ask yourself... "How do I create my own domain name?" It really is a simple task and one that should be done as soon as possible. There are many domain hosting sites on the web. One example is http://www.godaddy.com/ You can purchase your ideal domain name for as little as $9.99. Here are a few tips when picking your domain:




  • Choose a .com rather than a .net, .us, .info! .com's are what comes to mind as a potential customer is searching, therefore allowing you to become more visible.


  • Count how many characters are in your domain name. The shorter the better in my opinion. You want something short and catchy that will grab attention as well as fit on print ads and business cards with a professional look.


  • Choose to allow your domain name to automatically renew each year to insure you will not lose it.


Once you own your domain be sure to link it to your site and give it a test run to ensure it is working properly. Take advantage of creating your domain today to better your business for tomorrow!
