You will not get your domain today.
There is something else to do … … to answer the question you have but do not want to ask.
Is it necessary to have a domain to blog?
We can not do it? With a Blogspot or WordPress blog?
I have heard this many times and here is the direct answer: if you are serious about blogging and want to get a passive income, create and grow a brand, become an expert, get sales and conversions, then you need a secure domain.
If you’re not serious, you just want to play with blogs whenever you have time, then you do not need a domain name.
You can choose your Blogspot or WordPress blog. Let me explain it.
Can you call your rented house as your own? I can not, right?
Would you decorate it by investing a ton of money to fulfill your dreams?
It is not a guarantee that it will remain there forever. And you must vacate it every time the owner asks for it. You must pack your things and leave.
Well … build your blog on free platforms like Blogger and WordPress is the same.
It is not yours. To rent. No matter how much you worked on your blog, if they decided to kick you out, you have to leave.
And that’s the number 1 reason not to create a blog on free platforms.
Free blogs seem less professional than self-hosted ones. ones. You would not take me seriously if I had a blog like abcd (dot) blogspot.com or abcd (dot) wordpress.com.
Having my blog on abcd.com definitely makes it look more professional.
Remember, such platforms are designed for everyone who wants to write something online, and not for you who wants to take blogs seriously.
You must adjust to the design restrictions. limited add-ons, fewer advertising options [also known as profit].
In other words, you have to live with what is available and allowed, such as living in a rented house.
He can not do things as he wishes.
Of course, they are free and easy to set up and maintain.
It does not need much technical or design knowledge. But, the negative aspects outweigh the positive aspects.
Do not? Now, let’s see the benefits of having your blog in your domain. Have total control over your blog.
You can choose the design, the themes, the add-ons, and the additional functions can do what you want to do with the blog: choose your advertising options.
You can build your brand. Can grow your business, you can become an expert, customers of the earth.
You can create your passive income stream. And the best part is that you own your blog.
You can even sell your blog for a good price in the future if you wish.
Of course, it will cost you $ 10 for the domain name and a little more for hosting the blog. If you are serious enough, you can make 10x and more of that cost each year.
So before you start brainstorming about your domain name, decide this first: do you want a free or paid blog?
Do you want to be seen as a serious blogger or not? Do you want to own your blog? or rent it?
