Choose a Domain Name

The first step in making a website is to choose your domain name. A domain name is what you are going to call your website. To get a domain you have to register that name each year for a fee. www.make-a-web-site.com is my domain name. Getting a domain is only the 1st of three things required to make a website, you also need web hosting and a website builder. In step two I will show you where to find these.

DOMAIN TIPS

  • Make it simple
  • Register a .com domain name where possible
  • Keep it short

Your domain is important. I recommend either it be a cool catchy name or a description of what your website is about. For example, Facebook.com is cool and catchy but isn’t just about sharing pictures and updates or what you’re up to with your friends. On the other hand Creditcards.com explains exactly what the website is about.
