How to easily setup your website domain
The first thing to decide about is your name. Whatever your topic or business is, you can either have a name similar to that for example:
Or you can just have something off the wall or a single word. If you can find one.
Alot of people "park pages" which means they buy a domain, and only collect revenue from the clicks on that page. These single page sites are sitting waiting on someone like us who wants the domain name like www.pizza.com so badly that we would be happy to pay 1 million bucks, which is exactly what happened to the new owner of that domain, who paid the Million bucks.
If your looking for ideas, checkout godaddy, as they will alow you to register your doamin, and its very cheap, along with more extra services to help you get your site running.
Also on the main godaddy page they give you always alternative options names for whatever you put in their domain name searchbox:
www.pizza.com is taken :
They at the very least give your mind something to work with, and expand on any of your ideas, which makes things easy for you.
They also have an ebay style site for people selling their good name domains, so you can easily pickup a bargain, or pay a bit more for what is considered a good named domain.
Once You have decided you domain name
Just work your way through the godaddy pages its very easy, and also cheap if you use promo discount codes. OHY3 is a 15% discount.
As with every company, you will be attempted to be sold every other option you can dream about. including every other .co.uk .org.tv.me.this.that.
I would suggest you just go for a single domain .com Your going to pay the price of 2 drinks to own it for a year, so at least once your commited, you can change your mind, add more or sell it yourself.
If you can think of a good one, then you can place it in the aftermarket for domains. Checkout how busy it is in the screenshot.
The best one is getting about $2000, while the others are getting all between $200 - $600. SO if you can pick a good name, then all the better, if it doesn't work out and you don't use it then at least you can sell it!
