Your Blog – The Most Important Site
It is important to realize that your blog is the most important site you will put online, it is the gateway to everything you do online, it is how most people find you and find out more about you. In other words, it is a reflection of who you are and what you do online.
Choose A Domain Name That Reflects Who You Are
When starting a blog, the very first thing you should do is to register a domain name that reflects who you are and what you are going to do online. If you don’t buy your name now, once you become established online, somebody else will.
Ideally, you want to register your first name followed by your last name, with a .com extension, for example, lindakruger.com, if it is not available, try putting a hyphen between your name and last name, for example, linda-kruger.com. You can also use lindakrugeronline.com or linda-kruger-online.com.
The Extension Is Important
There are many different extensions you can get for your domain name, for example, .net, .org, .biz, .info, and the list goes on and on. It is best to get a .com extension because it is universally accepted across the internet and it is also one of the most original extensions out there.

You will see this:
Scroll to the lower part of the page to search if your chosen domain name is available:
If your chosen domain name is available, buy it. On the checkout page, you will have the option to add DNS management (this can help speed up your website) and ID Protection (to protect your personal information and reduce the amount of spam you receive). I would recommend that you choose both of these.
Enjoy your domain name search and let me know which domain name you bought for yourself!
