Multiple domain names is also a good idea. This way you own all of the .com\.org\.whatever and make sure no other company or individual will be using your company name and misdirect customers there. Getting different spellings for your domain name might also be a great idea, for example, your site name might be www.myexample.com, but it might be ideal to also purchase, www.example.com, just in case a customer types it this way, both will redirect to your site.
Premium domain names are so coveted nowadays that they have reached ridiculous and incredible prices. shopping.de is 2.8 million. toys.com 5.1 million, beer.com 7 million, hotels.com 11 million, and 360.com a whopping 17 million!
Well, now I already have or have purchased a domain name. Great! Now onto hosting. Website hosting is a service that gives businesses or individuals the ability to post their website on the Internet. Think of it as “rented” internet space, given that your literally renting space on someones server with your website.
When someone types in your website address into their computer, their computer then connects to the server your site is hosted on and all of the web pages will be shown on their screen. For this reason it’s important to find a Host Provider that have servers up to today’s tech & security standards. If not, your site might have super slow load times, meaning the customer might get annoyed or impatient and just find a different website. Or worse, your site might be vulnerable to hackers and viruses due to the lack of proper security measures.
