Register your own domain

Most people today would like to have their own website. To create your own website, you need hosting where you can place it. It all starts with registering a domain.

You do not necessarily have to have knowledge of programming. Nowadays there are several programs where you can set up a nice website in a few clicks.

Think of programs like Joomla, Wordpress, Umbraco, Drupal, Craft CMS, OpenCart, Maganeto, Kentico and many others.

With such a website builder, you can very easily put your resume or portfolio online, for example. As mentioned above, it all starts with choosing a good domain name. This can sometimes be quite difficult. Therefore, we give you some tips in this post.

Don't make it too difficult

If you have your own domain name you also want to be easy to find. One of the most important things you can do is choose a simple domain name.

For example, you can choose to keep your domain name short. If visitors want to return to your website later they will find it easier if it has a short name.

If you want an online CV or portfolio website then you might want to choose your first and last name as the domain name. You can then, for example, place a link on LinkedIn to make it look even more professional.

Avoid spelling mistakes

Perhaps one of the most annoying things that can happen to you when you register a domain. This not only makes it harder to find your domain but also looks sloppy.

To avoid this, it is advisable to run a spell check before domain registration. In addition to checking for spelling errors, it is also advisable to check the domain extension.

After all, you don't want to spend money on an extension that you don't want at all. If you are a company that delivers products or services only in the Netherlands then it might be best toregister a .nl domain.

Stay specific

If you sell a product or service it is an idea to incorporate this into your domain name. Think for example of MijnHostingPartner, where you can immediately see what kind of website it is and what kind of services are provided.

This is also good for the findability of your website so you can get the right customers faster.
