Owning personal websites has become quite a hit with today’s generation. While one can choose to have a free website, it is advisable to eventually buy your own domain. Now, one would ask us with a bewildered look on your face, and a domain is?

In simple terms a domain is that it is the address for your website. For example, say you have a website where you like displaying all the paintings you make, your personal website would be called: www.creativearts.com

If another free website building tool was hosting your site, then your website would come under their domain. The address of your website would then become something like: www.creativearts.freewebs.com, which suits you, coming easy on the pocket, but doesn’t suit the world, who cannot be bothered to remember which free domain your website is under and have no time to memorize such elaborate names. Good time to point out that our most frequently visited websites have short names: www.wikipedia.com, www.google.com.

When you are selecting your personal domain, we would advise you to opt for a .com, as opposed to a .in or a .org, simply because people out of habit, tend to think all websites end with a .com. Not our fault, seeing that initially most websites used to come under a .com.

Domain names should always be words that people would not forget. So if you are trying to improve your visitors with your list of impressive words, it’s highly doubtful they would be impressed if they cannot find their way to your website!

Use a domain name that would easily make your viewers understand what your website is going to be all about. A website that reviews books should have a direct reference to it in the title, say: www.bookwormsays.com.

Finally, domains tend to expire after a period of time. The best way to solve this problem is to set reminders for yourself to keep re-registering your account. Otherwise you would be left wondering why the heavy traffic has suddenly stopped!
