The Process Explained
Generally people start with a name, a domain name.
Go to GoDaddy.com and try out various .com names.
Artists would do well to use their full name or nickname, possibly adding a word like "studios."
An example: "www.PabloPicassoStudios.com"
Small businesses might have a harder time. So many names have been claimed that your exact business name might be taken.
Don't worry. Your domain name doesn't have to match exactly. You might add a location name or initials to your business name. You might add a fun little description.
It is recommended to grab a ".com" if possible. Next in line would be ".net."
These are the suffixes folks are most familiar with.
But if you're confident in your marketing and like something else: .info, .org, .us... don't let me stop you.
You purchase the rights to a domain name in yearly increments from a company like GoDaddy.com. Costs should be in the $12.99/yr. ballpark.
Hosting a website is the next part of the process. Box of Sparks will host your site for $8 a month.
