Setting up a new website is not very hard…
Especially if someone walks you thru exactly what to do.
We put this post together to help out a friend; and since it is pretty useful, we thought everyone might benefit from it as well.
So let’s get started, and we’ll show you how you can set up your first professional website for about $2-$3.
Getting A Domain Name Dirt Cheap
Getting a domain name is pretty simple; but too many people are overpaying for their domain names.
With a little research, you can find a domain name for your new website dirt cheap.
Head over to your friend Google, and do a search for the keywords…
“godaddy coupon” or “namecheap coupon”
Here is what I have found….
As you can see, you can get your first domain name from GoDaddy for a whopping 99 cents.
This is a special for new customers; so if you already have bought a domain name from GoDaddy, then you may not be able to take advantage of this offer.
If that is the case, simply head over to NameCheap, which has domains names for as low as 48 cents.
Spend a little time thinking about your domain name… And how you want to use it.
Also, one other thing you should consider before choosing a domain name…
Most people don’t realize that they can set up more than one website on a single domain name name.
For example, you could have one generic site on abc.com
And a completely different site targeting baby toys on abc.com/baby-toys
And another on abc.com/digital-cameras to review difernt digital cameras (and make some affiliate commissions)
We’ll show you how to do that below…
So think about that as you are searching for domain names.
All Good Domains Are Taken…
Not true. Take your time and keep checking…
And as you do your domain name research, you’ll come up with some other ideas as well.
Also, add a “-” (hyphen) and see if your chosen domain name is available.
So “burnfat.com” may be taken… But “burn-fat.com” may be available; and no, hyphens will not affect any SEO or Google love to your sites.
Also, look at alternatives to “.com”.
We use “.net” sites quite a bit… And “.us” works really well if you are a US resident (plus they are really cheap).
Again, the extension does not harm you in any way from SEO or Google’s view… At least from our experience.
The only extension we have ever had a problem with is a “.info” domain.
So we would recommend staying away from those.
You Gotta Have A Domain Name
So, do your Google search for GoDaddy/Namecsheap coupons, and get inside and find your domain name.
You gotta have one before you go any further.
And you can find a great one for around $1…
BUT… as promised, we wanted to show you how tog et multiple sites on one single domain name.
We did a short post on that below… So click the link and you’ll see what we mean.
It may make a difference on the domain name you actually choose.
