    How to Buy a Domain Name - Picking the Name

    (Page 3 of 4 )

    After you've done your own reviews and decided on a registrar, you've got to think about actually creating your domain. It all starts with the name itself. Remember, all the Web pages you create will contain this domain name in the address. If, for instance, you choose Goathead as your domain name, your pages will have an address which goes something like this: The domain name will forever be associated with your site, so choose well.

    In a sense, the name you choose for the domain is one of the more important decisions you're going to have to make about your site. You want to choose a name that's easy to spell and remember, primarily because you hope to get plenty of traffic and attention for your site. If that site is hard to find because of a cumbersome domain name, you aren't doing yourself any favors. People will refer to your site by the domain name, so make sure it's something that might stick with them.

    Picking a domain name usually isn't as easy as thinking up what you want and paying the money, though there is an element of that. It's likely that the name you want will already be taken; the Internet, after all, is a very popular place. Be sure to have a list of several acceptable possible domain names when you sit down to complete your transaction. This will help you save a lot of time and frustration.

    You'll also need to decide on a method of payment, since it's likely that any bank account or credit card you use will be set up so that the price of your domain name is automatically withdrawn at regular intervals. You'll also have to decide on whether you want to buy a domain name on a yearly basis or some other span of time. If this is your first domain, it's a good idea start slowly and work your way toward a more long-term domain goal.

    Once you've decided on a registrar and have some ideas of names and payment options, you can set up your domain online. After filling out a few online forms and providing your information, you'll be ready to start building a site on your very own domain. This is when the work really starts.
