Domain name

First, you start with a domain name. It’s what you type in the URL bar. Maybe you already have your domain name registered, but if you’re not sure what you want it to be I have some tips:

  • Don’t make your name too long.
  • Be creative and memorable.
  • Say it out loud a thousand times. How does it sound?

  • You can register a free domain name with Squarespace when you buy one of their website plans. After the first year the domain name is around $20,- per year. It's also easy to connect a domain name if you want to register your domain name somewhere else.

    I'm an introverted online business owner with wanderlust. I believe that being an introvert is one of the best assets a business owner can have. Introverts are excellent at working alone. They can work towards a goal without getting distracted. Plus, introverts are amazing at learning new things. I'm here to empower you to make your own website as awesome as you are. From the comfort of your own home. In your own time. So you can live the life of your dreams.
