This week I’m looking forward to creating a new website. After so many years doing the online business, we do have a few website now. But recently we’re looking for expansion on another industry so seem like having another website is ideal.
So, before looking for a website, we will try to brainstorm some website’s name by list out a bunch of them, at least ten names cross our mind.
And from the list of website names, we will cross reference with the name on GoDaddy website to get a preferable domain name. Godaddy will show if the name is taken or if not, it will show the price at that time.
We prefer GoDaddy because sometimes we will get a unique code and it’s cheaper at times. If you maintain the domain name for more than a year, normally it will be cheaper. So, you want to get a package of 2 years at least.
Once you bought the domain name, you need a hosting company. There are a lot of companies offering hosting services like HostGator, GoDaddy, exabytes, Bluehost and much more. You want to shop around and choose one that suitable for you.
For us, we prefer Hostgator. Maybe because of we quite familiar with the setup and structure for many years, also it was not too expensive.
