Choosing your blog domain name

The next step is choose your domain name (website name). Deciding a domain name can be challenging. A domain name is the website ‘name’ or the web address where users can visit your site, for example,   http://www.myonlinescrawl.com.

A domain name with option for email address

Choose a domain with an option for you to choose an email address that uses your website address, for instance, femia@myonlinescrawl.comDon’t underestimate the power of an email address for your online presence.

TIP: Try not to use a personal email address because it’s not professional. 

Purchase a domain name through a domain name registrar which has its own set of features. You need to identify a name that fits your niche. Once you have done that you do your payment to register your domain name for a set period.  

Choose Brandable Domain

Choose a brandable domain name bearing in mind that you cannot change it once it goes LIVE. With the help of a trusted service provider, you quickly get started.

A shorter name is better for people to remember and to type into a browser. Once a domain is bought, you can’t change it later except the website names that can be changed.
