Having a website particularly a blog which holds dynamic content naturally grabs attention simply because it brings content and drives audience. Not only that blogs are search engine friendly, nowadays, blogs are more than just a regular web journal where a person can write all about himself his daily grind.

Blogs had become popular and is continuously evolving with the aid of social media where bloggers can easily share their posts online to as many people in their circle with the use of microblogging platforms like Twitter and content sharing avenues through Tumblr and Yahoo Meme.

If you’re a blogger or a promising webmaster, would it be great if your name is your domain URL and not yourdomain.blogspot.com or yourdomain.wordpress.com?

Having your name as your domain name makes you more professional and recognizable. It’s like having your own home and in this case, your very own domain is your address that people can easily remember and attribute with especially if you’re trying to build your portfolio and web presence as a business.

There are many domain registrars out there that offer cheap and affordable domain names and if you’re planning to put up an e-commerce business, your Product URL is crucial to building your brand’s identity. It is the information that people will look up on the internet and if they found out that your business is created on a free domain, do you think they will buy from you to think that you don’t even have your own online identity? Think again, will you?

  1. I was lucky enough to be able to have my name as my blog’s domain name. When I first gained an interest into blogging just this year, I found that the domain name moralde.com is not available. I was kinda let down because this name would have been perfect for my very first personal blog. Before buying a domain name however, I took 3 months to study and prepare for the initial materials to publish. At the last hour, before I bought an alternative domain name, I checked for availabity of ‘moralde’ and found to my surprise that it is now available. Yes, it’s luck, it’s fate.

    You’re right in saying that it’s like having a home. I love it when some ‘relatives’ from everywhere send me messages of having stumbled upon my blog and asked about where I live and who my father, grandfather, etc…., and that they’re proud of my blog. They feel they also have a home in cyber world. 🙂

    With my blog, amateur as I am, I’d like to call it more as ‘personal’ than ‘professional’ though. 🙂

    We all have different reasons why we choose a domain name. In your case, you’re lucky that you were able to get the domain name you wanted although at first it wasn’t available. Maybe it was really destined for you. With your blogging, everyone of us start from scratch, it’s all up to us to keep the sail.

    Your right. Free websites are a waste of time and will never acomplish anything. I do recommend people tray wordpress.com as a practice site. That way they get to check out the WordPress dashboard before they try it on their own server.

    Thanks

    Hi Allister,
    Thanks for dropping by. I started this blog on Blogger.com and after gaining some momentum, I then decided to buy a domain and self-hosted it after a few months when I started earning.

    It’s actually much cheaper than most people think to host your own domain, and it looks much more professional. It’s definitely recommended for anyone who is serious about blogging.
