Choosing the right domain name is a very important step once you’re serious about setting up your blog / website, because they say this step is permanent. Well, not literally permanent, because you can always switch website names but its a very tedious process.
Should you go in for a Domain name or use one of the free hosts available online?
This is one of the most common questions people ask, because when you’re new, you don’t know whether you want to invest money or not. It could be a small idea and you’re not sure if you’ll continue after a certain point of time. I’d strongly suggest buying a domain name if you have space available since buying a domain name costs only $10 (roughly Rs 500). Alternatively, you can also choose to host your blog on wordpress.com which is totally free but if you are planning to monetizing your website via Google adsense, then wordpress.com is not the right option for you – You can choose blogger.com. In this case, your website URl will be http://blogspot.com/your_username and not www.your_desired_name.com
So, if you’re serious about starting up your website, go ahead and reserve your special domain name at NameCheap
