domain registration

5:03 PM Thursday, January 31, 2008

A domain is your blog address. So it has to be easily remembered and easily connected to you. If you're registering for one for your online business, it also has to be easily connected with your particular kind of business. Ambiguity may cost you traffic and business, and therefore, cash inflow.

It's really a great thing that domain registration is very easy nowadays. Of course, you have to do your research first, make sure you've compared features, prices and quality of support being offered. Can you easily contact them for questions? Is there a 24/7 call support? Is transfer of blog content, for example, included in the package or not? Is it their policy to remind you of renewals, offers, maintenance checks and down times?

Registering for your own domain is also usually tied up with web hosting, and usually the same concerns apply. The most important thing is that you know your particular target audience and the purpose of your site, so you will also know your requirements. When you know what your needs are, the more you will also know what to ask of your provider.
