Domain names is a great topic for those of you just starting your business as it is one of the early tasks you have. First, decide on a unique name for your business, then choose a unique URL (website address) that matches the name. Don’t design the logo first. Finding a unique URL can be tricky so be sure you have one that works before you invest in a logo. Why is it tricky? So many desirable URLs are already taken. That means you may need to be extra creative with the one you choose for your company.
Domain Name Basics
There are so many ways to secure your domain these days. You can go straight to a domain name provider like a Network Solutions or a GoDaddy, or you may even get domain names through your web hosting company. Domain Name prices are typically fairly low for available domain names, so unless you plan on buying a premium name which will cost you more than $20, you can really buy your domain name though the source that is easiest for you. For example, if you are buying a package through a web host and they provide 1 free domain name and your domain name is available and reasonably priced, then go for it. There is something to be said fir bundling your purchase for simplicity. Plus, when you do that, the web hosting company handles the details behind the scenes as far as where to “point” your domain for your website.
