Common misunderstanding: Domain names are not a website; they are the name that directs traffic to a website’s server! A domain or sub-domain name + hosting = a website!
Domain names help people find your website. They also provide you ownership of your website address, which makes it easier to remember and search for. You can control your website and the registrar that manage your domain name account. Plus, you can choose to sell your domain name if you want to.
However, there are some things to consider before registering your domain. Let’s go over some of them. Choosing the right domain for your website is an important part of the marketing process.
Choose an inexpensive domain name provider. Namecheap and GoDaddy are both good options. However, we sell them on our site, just with different interfaces of course. Namecheap is more straightforward, while GoDaddy is more advanced. You can register a domain name for as little as $0.99. But beware of introductory rates. These rates are meant to draw customers in, but they often increase when you renew. So, you’d be better off going with a provider that offers a low-cost domain name with great privacy protection like us!
