Now I am one who just loves WordPress and all that it can do for your website presence which can really give your business a boost. When I first started using WordPress I didn’t find it to be very user-friendly at all, but every time I switched over to Weebly or Webs, I always went back to WordPress for some reason. I worked with WordPress until I was finally able to figure it all out. WordPress has a bevy of plugins that you can use to really customize your website. The hardest thing in using WordPress was trying to figure out the menus. I thought it was the hardest thing in the world to figure out, but once you become familiar with WordPress you will find that it is an awesome platform on which you can build your business. And while it is, indeed, very complicated to use once you master it you will find that everything it offers is well worth the time in getting to know it.
When you are ready to start your business you’re going to need a domain name. When you decide on a domain name for your business you can go to GoDaddy to see if the domain name you have chosen is available. The extensions you can use, depending on the type of business you will be starting, are: dot.com; dot.net; dot.org; dot.co. I use dot.com for most of my businesses. I had momsinslippers.com when I started Moms in Slippers in 2002, but someone liked it so much that they took the name from me, used it for one year and now it is for sale for $2495 at Huge Domains. Isn’t that something. I was really disappointed to know that someone would just take my name from me because I worked so hard for it. The name is original and I loved everything it represents, but I learned to move on from it and decided to use momsinslippers.net. I’m still going strong and it still serves the purpose for which it was birthed. It just goes to show that Moms in Slippers is a great name and an even better business! (SMILE)
There are a lot of companies from which you can purchase your domain name, but I like GoDaddy and Bluehost. Here’s why. GoDaddy is super easy to use. You can purchase a domain name for as little as $6.99, but you don’t have to use their tools for building your website. Let me explain. Let’s say you decide on a name like, Precious Pearls. You do a search to see if it is available and it is. You make your purchase, but you want to use WordPress to build your website. You will have to sign into your GoDaddy account to change the DNS records so that you can use your domain name to build your site on WordPress through Bluehost. This is really easy to do. If you find any difficulty in changing the DNS records there is a wealth of information on the net on how to do this.
TIP: I use both GoDaddy and Bluehost to make my domain name purchases. I always check both when I’m in search of a domain name and whomever is cheapest, that’s who I go with. It’s truly your preference. They are both great!
