Why Do You Need Your Very Own Domain Name?
The domain name
is the address of your web site on the Internet for example 1stSingaporeWebHosting.com
There are many free web hosting services out there
offering free space, of course, with a free web address. Geocities,
to name a few.
If you are just looking for a home for your personal hobby
or photos of your son, it's perfectly ok to host your site on those free
servers. But if you are to expand your business into cyber world, you just
cannot do that.
You can't afford
not having your own domain name!
Never put your
business on a free web server with web address like this: www.freespace.com/freemembers/john/mybusiness/
What can you do
if this "freespace" company runs out of cash and closes its
door? Or it suddenly decides not to provide free services anymore and
start charging a ridiculous fee? Even if it asks you politely to move to
somewhere else, how can you update all the inbound links you have built
over years to your site? - to their site actually.
You will lose
almost everything you have developed if anything happens to that free web
server: traffic, business address, search engine ranking, inbound links,
a slight change at the free server can destroy your business.
What if the free space provider decides to change their URL naming
structure from /freemember/user to /member/user ? Then
everything is gone.
Let me tell you, it happened to me before. And I had no place to
complain since it was a free service!
In addition, did
you know that many free web servers are totally blocked out of some major
a domain name you avoid all the risks.
You also gain a lot of respect from your visitors and potential
your own domain name indicates you are a serious Internet
player. Would you buy anything from someone who can't afford
a domain name?
With a real
domain, you are also more likely to get listed and rank higher in Yahoo
and other search engines and directories. Forget about getting listed in
Yahoo with a Geocities address - even though Yahoo owns Geocities.
register a domain name, it's yours, forever, as long as you pay the annual
fee. That name goes with you - wherever you host it.
Unless you expect to do a minimal amount of business on
the Internet, you have to get
your own domain name!
