The most important steps for your online entity are domain registration and hosting. If you have got the right domain name for your website then the other most important are hosting. I always thought that why Google, Facebook, and other main companies are getting success day by day. I found these two things; domain registration and hosting. This is the other thing how they are providing best services.
When you don’t care about money for business then your business get more quality and standard. Same is with domain and hosting. If you have the free domain and hosting, you will have limited resources and that domain will never be yours.
If you have your own domain then its address will be like as
http://yourname.com or http://yourcompanyname.com.
If you go with some free company then it will be like
http://yourname.freecomapnyname.com or http://yourcompanyname.freecomapnyname.com.
In the other words, you will promote that free company, not you. So, try to purchase the domain and hosting and from a famous company.
The first step in your website is domain registration. Domain name is not much costly. It cost only five to ten dollars for a year. Visit the most famous companies for domain registration like GoDaddy, BlueHost, NameCheap, HostGator and many many others. Check out their packages and choose the one that you can afford. Remember, the choice of domain name is the most important step. Ok, select package, pay and start your online business.
In all this process, buying a domain name is not the whole thing. Try to choose a domain name that is not only descriptive od your website, but also easy for people to remember. Think about your domain name’s keyword. It should be usable and can get easily rank in major search engines. As an example, if your domain name is about lemons, then check to see if www.lemon.com is available. If not then you can try with variations like www.freshlemons.com etc.
It is good practice to use two different companies: one for your hosting and one for your domain registration. That way if you part company with your website hosting company, you will still have easy control of your domain name. It is just better not to have all of your eggs in one basket when it comes to your personal website.
After registering the domain, the next step will be buying the hosting. A hosting company, actually, will allow you to place your website’s files on the internet for you. The location for these files will be pointed to your domain name using NS (nameservers). Always, try to have two different companies for your website. That way if you have some dispute with one of them, the other will still available for you.
