If you are a blogger and you want to bring your blogging to the next level, you should register your own domain name. More so if you intend to monetize your website.
In layman’s terms, domain name is the name that people will type into their browser in order to access your site; it is your address in the internet. In the case of this blog, it is techieshe.com.
Bloggers who are just starting out usually just create blogs in free blogging platforms like WordPress.com and Blogger.com. When your website address ends with .blogspot.com or .wordpress.com, it is considered only as a subdomain. This practice is acceptable since some people just want to know whether blogging is for them. It is however for the same reason why you should get your own domain name. By domain name registration, you send out the message to the world that you are serious with your blogging.
Another reason why you should get a domain name is the fact that having your own domain name makes branding easier. It gives a sense of authenticity and respectability to your site because it is not associated with other companies such as WordPress and Blogspot. In addition, having an email address using your domain name makes your communication with your site’s clients more professional and credible as compared to just using yahoo and gmail.
A domain name is a great investment for every blogger. If you are really serious with blogging, get one.
