Looking to get a domain, aka web address or URL, for your new or growing business?
Running a business usually means getting online. A domain name is typically the first thing obtained when starting your businesses life in the web world. Many people confuse a domain name with a website, but a domain name is simply the name used to visit a website and its pages. It is also used as a “professional/business email”, like [email protected] instead of [email protected].
Deciding on a domain name and where to get it will be easy. Every business needs a domain name to live online, knowing the benefits makes it easier to go ahead and get one.
Most people would agree that you need a website for your business. However, many small businesses can’t afford a website when starting. That DOES NOT mean that you should avoid getting a domain name. Purchasing a domain name for your new business can be used for a future website, but most importantly, it can be used now for professional email communication.
- Online Identity. A domain name gives your business a unique location online that is easily brandable. Think of a domain name as a street address, it tells people how to find you online, no matter if it’s an empty lot or a mansion.
- Avoid Being the “Amateur On Line”. Having a domain name gives you the ability of having a professional/business email address. You can have [email protected] instead of [email protected]. Your email address should be on my types of working, you want to promote mybusiness.com instead of aol.com. Many people also view @gmail.com, @yahoo.com, and @aol.com as non-professional and being a business amateur. People do refer to others with an AOL domain, as standing for Amateur On Line.
