RTOD: Domain Name Pain

Posted by Chanelle Schneider on May 20, 2010

I‘ve been going back and forth with myself for a little while now regarding the purchase of a domain name. I started this blog a year ago to give myself the opportunity to finally get serious about what I wanted to do with my life. I feel that I’ve done a consistent job with this but would love to do more. I want to get into podcasts, more marketing, and, especially, blog designing. Having a blog with a registered domain name would afford me those opportunities. I strive to grow and educate myself by learning the things I wasn’t able to learn in school.

What say you, readers? Do you own your own domain name? What made you make the decision? Any tips to share?

    Hey Chanelle! I own my domain. I recommend it. Everything is yours then. Gives you a sense of “legitimacy” even if you already are legitimate. The trick is getting a good domain name. I assume your also going to do some self-hosting. In any case, let me know what you think and if you have any questions. I rather help you out than you waste time going to through simple issues I faced.

    • Hey there Josip! Thank you for the comment and the offer to help. I appreciate it! I am looking to be taken seriously as a blogger, so I think moving to my own domain is a necessary step. What issues did you face?

  2. Get a domain. They are fairly cheap per year and its like you said, the customizable features and abilities is the main reason. I have my own domain name and it was to make the site more professional and standalone. But most importantly it was because I wanted to build my own page design and include my own stylistic elements

    • LOL. “Get a domain.” Yes, sir! At the outset I was hesitant to get a domain because I wasn’t sure that I would be disciplined enough to keep up with the blog, but it seems to be working out so far. Also, I hate that I can’t customize this the way I would like to.

    I agree with everyone… Get a domain. 🙂
