How do I get a domain name?
Welcome to WordPress Website Design for the Absolute Beginner. This journey will take you from absolute WordPress Noob to WordPress Ninja. Why another video series on WordPress for the Absolute Beginner? Because too many videos on YouTube are either done very poorly by very knowledgeable people (you can’t SEE or HEAR what they are doing) or done well by people who don’t have a clue about WordPress. The intent of the WordPress Website Design for the Absolute Beginner video series is to bring you clear, concise videos where you can hear what I am saying and SEE what I am doing. All done at a level that the beginner can understand.
Also done with no fluff, or B.S. to waste your time. So let’s get right to it.
Video 1 starts at the VERY beginning and assumes you don’t have a clue about websites. To give you your first clue, a website needs 2 things to live. First, a domain name (or URL) like www.WordPressWebsiteSecrets.com THAT is the domain name of my site. Second, a website needs a place to live. Where it lives is called a “Host” or “Hosting Company”. You have probably heard of companies like GoDaddy, or BlueHost. Those are companies that have servers where you can place all the files of your website and those servers “serve” up your data when someone requests your site.
The video below covers the very first step. Registering a domain name. But did you know that your domain name is not just a name? It plays a part in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs),
which essentially means – how Google (and the other search engines) determine who gets to be on page one (or two, or, … you get the picture) of a search for any particular keyword or key-phrase. In this video we discuss different ways to (wisely) obtain a domain name. Check out the video!
