Do you really need a domain name? Have you started several blogger or other free blogs that have taken on a life of their own? It is easy to accumulate hundreds of pages of valuable content and comments…. only take wake up one day and it is gone. Sure the information may have been backed up on your hard drive.. but why was it deleted? Can free hosts legally delete free blogs?
There are thousands of horror stories online about losing a website overnight on a free blogging platform. Obtaining a domain name is inexpensive and a great way to create a professional home online for any income generating project.
Making money blogging happens over several months or longer. This content that is built up over time may contain several back links. Link juice as it may be called. Try not to build up too much on servers that you have no control of. Free hosting companies do not care about you. Yes, that is a bit harsh but it is true. A free hosting company will not have a support phone number available or employees waiting on standby for immediate support to fix the problem.
Never lose your online home …. free hosting services do not care about you. They have no motivation monetarily to help your servers prosper.
How else can a domain name help?
Freelancers can give their services a home online. Local business and global contacts can easily find about how you can help them.
Established brick and mortar businesses can have simple information about services, products, rates, and reliable contact information.
It is amazing how many hair salons and other service based businesses have a disconnected phone number listed in the yellow pages or there is only an address listed with search engines. Try The Niche Blogger for FREE! Click Here for a FREE 3 Day Trial
