These days it seems like everyone has their own piece of the web and by that I mean to say they’ve got their own domain name (shoot even I have one… well more than one but that’s a different story for another time). And the variety of different extensions available to people has grown exponentially as well including .me. io .biz and even ones like .life .guru and .expert just to name a couple
So with all these options it can make it difficult to get the domain name you want in some cases making you change the name of your blog or online business just to get that perfect domain name. I seem to get asked quite often “Luke, I want to setup a blog and I want this domain name __insert domain name here____.com” Now, .com was and still is a huge in terms of its association with domain names however there are plenty of other extensions out there that you can register that don’t require you to shell out big bucks for the .com domain name of your dreams. There are plenty of other domain name extensions that I would recommend to any business owner or blogger out their. If you own a restaurant try .local or something more country specific (.ca or .com.au). Do you have an online photography business then I would suggest .photography. The point is that instead of having to compromise on a .com just because its a .com why not get the domain name of your dreams just with a different and more relevent extension. If you have any questions post them below, I’d be happy to guide you and if I’ve convinced you to get a domain I always recommend using 1&1 to sign up for a new domain name.
