How to Buy a Domain Name - Your Domain
(Page 4 of 4 )
You should absolutely take advantage of the online tools and features provided by your domain name registrar. These applications are designed to help you create the Web site you want, so use them. Even if you're great at HTML and have a working knowledge of page design, there's always more to learn. Using online tools and features can help take a lot of the code-writing work out of site creation, as well. The more time you save in creation, the faster your site will be up and running -- and hopefully, making money for you.
You're paying for your domain, which means it's definitely your realm to command. If you want to offer email, shopping, online forums, then you can. Create the site you want with the pages you want, but frequently check your site even if you aren't adding new materials. Since you control your own domain, you'll want to be sure everything is always working the way it should. Many registrars provide maintenance tools and technical support to help you with that end of running your domain.
When you buy a domain name, the site you create is fully yours. Only you can place ads, links, images and all those money-making extras. Explore different options and possibilities to learn more about how you can earn with your site, such as with Internet revenue-creating offers, which include affiliate programs and pay-per-click. When you own the domain, you make the decisions, so it's worth it to put a little time and thought into your site.
A Money-Making Site
It's possible to take advantage of any number of revenue-creating applications whether you own your own domain or not. Even with Web hosting, you can implement many tools and features on your site that will help put money in your pockets.
Having your own domain name, however, gives you more complete control of your site. If you despise seeing pages you create filled with banner ads and links you didn't place, having your own domain name is one way to alleviate the problem.
But owning your domain takes a lot of time and effort when it comes to site creation and maintenance. Before committing yourself and getting locked into a domain for a long time, explore all the options of Web hosting. You may find that you can create a money-making site for free, and that a few extra ads don't hurt much.
