Why Do You Need Your Very Own Domain Name?

The domain name is the address of your web site on the Internet for example

There are many free web hosting services out there offering free space, of course, with a free web address. Geocities, Tripod, NetFirms, Fortunecity, just 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:

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, bookmarks...

Even 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 search engines!

By having a domain name you avoid all the risks.

You also gain a lot of respect from your visitors and potential customers. Having 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.

Once you 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!
