There are lots of things to be learned when getting started with your online business. First you will have to have a website and to do that you will need to obtain a domain name.
Let me tell you a little about what a domain is. For every website that is out there on the internet, will have an IP address. An IP address is like a mailing address. It’s where you can be found online. An IP address will look something like this 220.127.116.11. Remember this when you obtain your domain name; It’s much easier for people to remember a name than it is to remember a set of numbers. All domains have a suffix. For example.com which is the most popular. The other suffixes available are;.info,.net,.co,.org (which mostly refers to non-profit, but not always),.us,.ca,.biz,.mobi and.me.There might be others out there but those are the only ones I know of. For an Internet Marketer I would highly recommend.com. This one most recognized in the search engines and as an Internet Marketing you want the search engines to recognize you.
So when you are in the process of obtaining a domain name pick a name that is relevant to the information that will be on your website.
Obtaining a domain name is one of the first things you need to do before you build your website. You can go to GoDaddy or 1and1.com to obtain a domain for under $10 for the whole year. Really all you have to do is type a search for “domain” in Google and you will see all the different places you can obtain a domain name. Once you go there you’ll have to pick out your domain. If you can make it flashy, easy to remember then it will stick in peoples heads better and get you more traffic to your website. Obtain a domain name and you’ll be on your way to having your own website. Just follow the directions and you will have your website up and running in no time.
You can obtain a domain name in 5 easy steps:
1. Go to GoDaddy.com or 1and1.com
2. Obtain a domain name that is relevant to your website.
(you can get a discount on multiple domains).
3. You will also need hosting for your website.
(That will run you about $5.00 a month)
Tip: If you are very new to Internet Marketing and this is your first website you can go to Blogger to get your free website. The only thing is that it will have. a.blogger extension in the domain name. I would highly recommend that you still obtain a domain name in this case so that you will look more professional as you start out.
4. Start building your website. There are many good programs out there. Blogger is good to start out with and as you progress you can move on to WordPress. Learning WordPress is a very valuable skill in the Internet Marketing field.
Once you obtain your domain name and have your website built you will be on the road to your Internet Marketing career success.
Remember, this is your presence on the internet. It doesn’t have to be perfect the first time.
