In this session I’m going to talk about the domain name.
Now for those who don’t know what a domain name is it’s your website address.
I’m going to talk about how to get a good domain name for your site.
How to register that domain name and actually how to point it to your name servers.
And if you have not done this before.
Make sure you watch this.
So let’s talk about picking a good domain name for your web site.
Let’s make it short.
I’ll tell you why.
Take a look at the top 50 viral Web sites BuzzFeed Upworthy viral Nova Zirk net.
Little things distracted.
I noticed that the domain name has nothing to do with the topic that they’re on.
It has two words maybe three.
So keep it short.
Make it a dot com and stick with com.
Just believe me if you choose a long domain name people won’t remember it and you’ll miss a lot of free
direct traffic to your website.
Stick with two words or three Macs and there are a lot of good domain names still available.
You just need to be creative.
Let me show you guys how to do it.
I like to go to a Web site called Instant domain search dot com.
So let me show you.
Let’s say we want to build a pet Web site.
I’ll just start typing Petz lovers dot com.
Let’s try something else.
What about pet Soma.
See that it’s super short.
If I was going to build a Petz web site I would grab that domain name.
And by the time you watch this video I’m sure that domain name will be gone.
Personally I don’t register my domain name here.
Actually I do it at GoDaddy.
Sometimes you find a domain name but when you want to register it says that it’s not available.
But just keep searching.
Take your time maybe get someone from family involved to help brainstorm with you and remember to keep
it as short as possible.
It doesn’t have to be the exact same as your site topic because your site topic might be several topics.
Do you understand.
So let’s talk about registering a domain name at Go Daddy.
Of course there are a lot of places where you can register your domain but if you’re going to register
a brand new one I recommend to go with Go Daddy.
The reason why is you’re going to have a lot of time invested in this site.
Don’t go with a cheap register.
GoDaddy has one of the best interfaces and uptime and I particularly like them because when we’re going
to set the DNS if you already have a domain name somewhere else or use a different register it’s OK.
It’s up to you but I highly recommend you’d stick with Go Daddy.
You can go to youtube and search how to register a domain name but let me show you how to do this.
I already picked a domain name Patso my dot com
GoDaddy will try to sell you all of these domains here.
Do you just want to select one click select and continue to carked
and I would make it private.
So go ahead and pay the extra eight bucks to make it private just to protect yourself from spammers
and other unwanted attention.
So I’m going to scroll down and continue to cart and don’t select anything else you won’t need anything
Register it for just one year.
I’m going to go ahead and proceed to check out
and just agree to the terms and then you place your order and that’s it.
Now that we’ve got our domain name registered at Go Daddy I’m going to show you how to set your name
Now I just want to be clear here it’s not that hard to do it yourself but if you want someone else to
do it for you you can use one of your credits or purchase additional support credits.
First go to your hosting provider control panel.
I’m on host gator see panel interface.
You’ll scroll down and on the right you’ll find your name servers.
This is the primary name server.
And this one dot host gator that COM and this is the secondary one you’ll need both of these.
What we do now is copy the first name server and go to our GoDaddy dashboard click on DNS
scroll down here and there are your name servers.
Now click on change choose Custom and paste your first host gator name server.
The second one and save and what happens now is going to take a little while.
It says that it’s going to take 24 hours for your DNS to work.
But don’t worry it will take less than that.
About 10 or 15 minutes.
This is the end of the session.
See you on the next video.
