According to Oxford Dictionary a “domain name” is ” the part of a network address which identifies it as belonging to a particular domain.” In other words-is the words, that people type into the address bar of their browser when they want to visit a certain website. In today’s video i share with you 3 very simple tips on how to choose your domain name. Please press play to watch it. 

So there you have them.

1. Your domain name should be easy to spell and remember 

2. Think long term when you are choosing your domain 

3. Remember you can always change it or get another one 

There are a few ways to start blogging for free like blogger and wordpress.com .I recommend you to self-host and here is why 

  • Free services limit the functionality and options for your site.
  • Free services limit how much you can customize the look and feel of the site.
  • It’s more difficult to make money from a free service (it can be impossible to add eCommerce/shopping cart functionality or to run ads). 

If you need any help on choosing a domain name you can also do an extra bit or research by going to amazon top selling books, google trends and also typing the words in your new domain in the Google keyword tool. Above all listen to your intuition when you are choosing a domain. You will be the one who will promote your domain and the name has to bring a smile to your face and fill you up with excitement and inspiration. 

 I have created over 400 WordPress blogs in the last 5 years and all of them have been done on a self-hosted platform. If you have any questions on setting up your blog please get in touch and I will help you to set up your blog.

Thank you so much for visiting my site. I was born and raised in Bulgaria (a small country in  Eastern Europe). I moved to Northern Ireland when I was 22 years old, full of hope, big dreams and an adventurous spirit. I am the mother of four wonderful boys and although I am very grateful for each lesson I've learned in my life, I wish that some things might have happened sooner, but everything has it’s place and everything that is  worthwhile is not always easy.  I want to connect with you. Get in touch.
