0.13 Choosing a domain name

Now, you are about to choose your first domain name for your website.

You will have it included for free with your hosting with our deal with Hostpapa here.

You will ask yourself, what domain name shall I choose for my course website?

Here are a couple of guidelines to keep in mind:

  1. Aim to stick with .com extensions
  2. If your desired .com is taken, .net is a good option
  3. Something easy to pronounce and spell
  4. Your name is perfect for a personal website
  5. Try to keep your domain name short

Have a look at the domains from my list of 100 blog income reports, and use that to inspire your own journey.

If you are out of ideas, feel free to attend my weekly Instagram live office hours (you will get access soon), or just ask our tutors in the chat widget on the bottom right.

Hi good day sir Scott. How do I remove the add-ons from my billing plan. It's a whole lot of money on HostGator. Also I wanted to know if it's possible to be charged on a monthly basis rather than altogether at a time as I don't have much altogether.

Hello,
I really want to take this course, and I thank you for this precious opportunity that you are giving us here, the problem is that right now and I don't have a credit card, I don't have many choices here in Algeria, the process of getting a credit card can take a while.

However, I have recently created a website with a ".wordpress.com" free domain name, can I use this one, just to keep up with the course, until I get the necessary money and the credit card to buy a HostGator domain name before the end of the course because I really want to follow this course and get the certification.

Could you tell me, please?

Hello Tutor,
Before reaching this lesson I got a link in mail (from Scott max) and then I bought a domain from hostgator from that link. At that time I didn’t know we have to stick with .com or .net. My domain name is e-pharma.club.
Would it be a problem for assignment or certificate?
