To make it easier for you to understand the contents of the article, I am compiling this article into several sub-sections. I hope you read this article in order that no part is missed. (19659005) brand 'for a website

Choosing a domain name should not be any. Why? Because the domain name will be one of your website identity. Some of the following tips will help you in determining the right domain name:

1. Do not use free domain

 domain1 Many people may not want to shell out a dime to buy a domain. And the shortcut they take is to use a free domain.


If you are serious about creating a professional website, never use a free domain. Point, this is not to be bargained.

Why mas?

Free domain like .tk, .cf, .ga (provided Freenom ) and so on are often used by spam websites. And in the eyes of google, the free domain reputation is very ugly .

In addition, there are often cases where domains are not completely free. Maybe in the beginning of its use is not a problem, but I often encounter cases where website owners who use free domain suddenly can not access the domain for no apparent reason.

Some have experienced if the free domain they use is auctioned by the domain provider. Horrified right? So please avoid using a free domain. The price of is very cheap and there is no reason for you not to buy it

2. Make sure the domain name is not similar to other website

As I have said before that determining the domain name is the same as making the name 'brand' on your website. Then you should make sure that your 'brand' of your website is not the same as other websites, especially large websites.

Examples such as travelokaku.com blibliyuk.com etc. [19659003] Avoid selection of domain names similar to other websites. You must create the name of your website 'brand'

3. Whatever the domain name, .COM remains the best

Whatever your domain name later, try to use the extension .com. Except for domain names for government agencies and schools that use .go.id ,. sch.id .ac.id and so on.

Actually there are many domain extensions that you can use, such as .co.uk, .net, .info, .org, .me and so forth. But the most easily remembered by internet users is .com for example google.com facebook.com traveloka.com etc.

So it is advisable to prioritize the extension .com, if indeed the domain name with the extension. Com is not available, yes you may just use another domain extension as the last option.

4. Domain names should be easy to remember, avoid numbers and dashes (-)

Do not use domain names that are hard to remember, especially if they are hard to pronounce as there are numbers and dashes / minuses (-) [1945900]. ] For example: tokob4ju-cynntia.com

Avoid domain names as above because it's hard to remember and the writing is also not recommended. Avoid also domain names with alay writing, like changing letters with numbers.

Still confused in determining domain names?

I will make it easier. Suppose your name is Ekita and you want to create an online store. Create a domain name that is easy to remember, brandable and not accompanied by numbers or strips. For example EkitaShop.com .
Or if you want to create a website about recipes, the domain name you can use is DapurEkita.com . Easy is not it?

I consider the problem of determining domain name is finished . Make sure you have set up the domain name you want to use.

Step 2: Define CMS Platform

Maybe you are not familiar with the term CMS. Content Management System or CMS is a software used to create and manage a website easily.

And the CMS we will use this time is WordPress . Why I suggest WordPress?

There are many other CMS you can use like Joomla, Magento, Drupal, Prestashop and so forth. But I strongly recommend you use WordPress.

Some of the advantages of WordPress include: free, very secure, and website customization becomes much easier with the help of more than 30.000+ plugins and 2500+ free themes. Not only that, at least 30% of all websites are using WordPress (rather than other CMS) with a market share of 60% .

More specifically, you can see tables published by [19659044] WebsiteSetup.org to know more details about which CMS is the most popular

 how to create a website

WordPress that I mean here is WordPress.org (self hosted) WordPress.com (hosted) which has a website address such as namablog.wordpress.com .

Although both are in the same company, both are different .

Using WordPress.org (self hosted) means we must first have domain and hosting, then install CMS WordPress (which you can download for free) to your hosting. Using WordPress self hosted means you hold full control against your website. You are free to edit, crack or do anything to your website.

Different again when using WordPress.com and Blogger.com (Blogspot) ] hosted even if you get free hosting (rather hosting), neither WordPress.com nor Blogger.com gives you full access to your website.

If you violate their terms and policies, then you can be kicked out, the worst of your website will be deleted without notice. It's like this, you stay at home people, surely you can not do much in the house, you must follow the rules of the home owner and if you violate the rules … ..

…. then you will be kicked [19459011

  • The feature is very complete
  • The website looks professional
  • Hosted

    • The customization is very limited
    • Feature limited
    • Was-was if website will be deleted

    Up here, we agree using WordPress self hosted for our website later. Do not worry you will not have trouble using WordPress. You do not need to coding from the beginning of your website display later, everything is dicover by WordPress.

    Step 3: Buying Domains and Hosting

    As previously stated that the terms of building a website with WordPress self host is , first you must have domain and hosting .

    Domain and hosting prices are varied, about Rp. 500.00 per year (depending on hosting specifications). Is it worth that much? To build successful business is necessary capital and effort . These two things can not be separated. I think the price is not a problem if you really want to build your business to be more developed again. Building a self hosted website does require an initial cost, but the future positive impact is huge for your business.

    Okey, I'm ready. Where can I buy a domain and hosting?

    For the best domain and hosting place at a cheap price, my choice falls on Niagahoster.co.id . The reason I choose Niagahoster because the price is competitive, a list of varied hosting packages, often provide discounts, customer support response quickly and responsive.
