WordPress and Domain Names
Domain Names are the title of your Website. Icann are the governing body of the internet and they have explained in this video what a domain name is? Strange, we all visit websites but yet many of us do not know what a domain names are? Have a look at this short video and remember you will need a domain name for your WordPress Site. Godaddy is one of the most popular registrars on the internet, many WordPress users have their domain names regged at Godaddy.com This WordPress Video explains the world of Domain Names and how they can assist in making your WordPress Blog much more memorable and possibly “Searchable” on places such as Google and Bing There is even a strong after market for good Domain Names, one reason is that a good Domain Name adds to the branding power of a professional website or blog! It is basically self advertising and helps you with your marketing plan. Many people believe that generic term Domain Names get noticed by the Search Engines in preference to more obscure sounding names. What would you rather have “Crazy Hats” or the more generic term of “Hats” The second of these two Domain Names offers the option to have Crazy Hats as part of a stock supply but is not tied to just that one category! For your WordPress Blog you will need a domain name. Domain Names are registered every day by investors and by users. This WordPress Video will look at how we register our Domain Names and what is a Domain Name registrar, consider that a registrar is like a library and that Domain Names are like books we have borrowed? I say borrowed because we never fully own our Domain Names, we are required to renew them each year! You must remember that you need to renew Domains annually because if you forget, you will lose it to someone else! Normally you get reminder emails from the Domain Name’s registrar. You can also set the domain to “Auto Renew”
