Your Domain

Your domain name helps people find you online. I always recommend using your name, or at least owning your name and having it forward to your business. This helps if someone searches you by your name instead of your business name. While you can register your preferred domain name through WordPress, Shopify and Squarespace — having control over your domain settings is important as your website grows. Consider one of the following sites to register your domain with. Note: Don’t let this process overwhelm you! You can always ask your developer/designer for assistance registering your domain and pointing it in the right direction.

GoDaddy

Possibly the top name in domain registration (yes, that is a thing!) GoDaddy offers reasonable pricing and excellent phone support — if you can handle the constant up sells and borderline inappropriate TV ads. GoDaddy makes registering Domain Names fast, simple, and affordable.

Namecheap

Namecheap is an ICANN-accredited domain registrar and web hosting company, based in Los Angeles, California. Namecheap maintained a strong anti-SOPA position Aptly named, Namecheap offers domains for extremely reasonable prices while also providing excellent support. Another great option!
