Domain Name Registration
It all starts with a name. Your domain name is the "dot com" that points viewers to your website. The internet is now inundated with names so it's becoming increasingly difficult to select a name that's short and sweet. That being said, choose a name that reflects your brand or identity and try to keep it, well, short and sweet!
A couple of suggestions when purchasing a domain name. First, always purchase from a reputable domain name registrar such as Enom. Go Daddy and Network Solutions are great registrars but my experience has been that they charge for extras like domain name forwarding, ID protection or email. Second, when you register your domain name, always opt for domain name protection to avoid the spammers. Lastly, make notes as to whom you registered your domain with and when the renewal date is. Spammers will get a hold of your contact information and send you "Urgent Renewal Notices" encouraging you to renew your domain name for some exorbitant amount of money. Just say no!
