How To Start A Blog Right – Step 1: Choose Good Domain name

Today, I'm going to share a few more tips how to start a blog right. All you have to do is follow the simple steps. 

Your blog domain name​

Before you can start your blog, you need a domain name. It's like mine www.businessandmarketingtips.com. You can think about it like myawesomewebsite.com.

Take some time and think about the domain name before you choose it.

I advise you to choose .com name. Find a domain name with your name or the one that is unique and describes your niche (what you do).

Make sure it's as short as possible so people could remember it.

Your personal name as a domain name

The best possible solution is to pick up yourname.com.

For example, I can tell you one of my websites is www.irenastopar.com (www.myname.com). 

Your niche as a domain name

Perhaps you don't want to use your personal name. In this case, I advise you to brainstorm and pick the name of your niche. Try to find as short as possible and make sure it describes what you offer on your blog.

When I was searching for the desired domain name for my astrology blog, I couldn't find what I wanted. Then, one of my student told me he won't use his anymore. So, I bought another domain - www.astrofoundations.com

Whatever you choose, it can work for you. For most niches, I think is the best if you decide to use the .com domain.

Advanced tip:

When you choose your domain name, you can buy as many domains as you want for your original domain name (like yourname.com, yourname.eu, yourname.live, yourname.guru, etc.). 

Register your blog domain name

So, if you don't have a domain name yet, go to GoDaddy or Blue Host and register the one you want to use in your business.

In the next post, I'll explain you the Step 2. ​

    Thanks for the great tips. Very helpful in choosing a domain. The basic is what a lot of us need to go back and review. Thanks again.

    • Irena says:

      David, thank you for your opinion. Whenever I face the obstacle, I always go back to basics. We often think that we don’t achieve great results because we need to know more. The fact is we all need to take more action.

    • Irena says:

      David, Thank you for your comment. I couldn’t more agree with you. When people try to make money online ofter rush for the money and forget about the most important basic things like a blog domain name.

  • Sam Nuku says:

    Thanks for the tips. I’m definitely with you in terms of using ones name for a domain name!

    Just works well with personal branding of a small business especially a solopreneur.

    The niche one is definitely viable as well so all helpful tips. Thanks again

    • Irena says:

      Sam Nuku, thank you for the comment. I use both.

      If I would just begin the online business and have only one thing to do, I would definitely choose the personal name for domain name and branding.

  • Great post Irena, very informative and very easily digestible. One thing I can add is NameCheap for registering a domain name. Very user friendly to us, live customer support, and an SSL for your domain for a buck 99. I don’t know if Godaddy offers this, they did not before, and I haven’t used BlueHost.

    I really like your site…
