What is Pay Per Click Marketing?

What Pay Per Click Marketing Is?

Have you heard the common term in the online world, PPC (=Pay per click)?

Today I’m going to briefly explain what Pay Per Click Marketing is and why you should start using it.

Get Customers to Your “Store” Using PPC!

When you have a website and a lot of valuable content you want to get visitors. As in any business, you want the customers to walk into your store.

Let’s imagine that you have a grocery store and everything is ready there waiting for the customers. You would like more customers to walk in because it doesn’t help at all if you have done everything perfectly inside the store if no one takes the step to walk in.

That’s what PPC does for you. Gets the customers to walk into your store.

Get Highly Targeted Visitors

When people search different things in the search engines you want that they would see your website. There are two ways for that SEO and PPC (Read what is SEO and why you will need it). PPC allows you to get fast in the search engines.

You can make a PPC-campaign using any term you want. You can get your website appear when someone searches for example

  • How to earn money online
  • How to learn guitar faster
  • What are the best books to read in 2016
  • What is the best way to use social media
  • Or literally anything.

The visitors that you get from PPC campaigns can be ultimately targeted. They are already searching something related to your online business.

It means that they already have a need that you can fill with your products or services.

Still I want to mention that PPC should never be the only way to get traffic to your website. SEO and social media marketing are also the vital part of your online business but PPC can give a great boost to get more visitors and more revenue.

Two Examples

 

What Pay Per Click Marketing Is

Example from Bing.

In the picture, you can see the example of PPC ads. I made the search “How to earn money online” and the first things that I see are the paid ads.

Pay Per Click 101

Example from Yahoo.

Again I made the search using the same term “how to earn money online” and surprise surprise! PPC ads are again the first ones to appear. Using PPC can be the ultimately powerful way to get more traffic!

Start with Yahoo and Bing

I recommend you to start your first PPC campaign with Bing and Yahoo. Bing and Yahoo still get almost 30% of the market share of the search engines so that’s a huge amount because there are millions of searches made every day in the search engines.

Bing and Yahoo still get almost 30% of the market share of the search engines so that’s a huge amount because there are millions of searches made every day in the search engines.

You can get your ads for the both of the search engines from Bingads.com.

Using Google Adwords to get ranked in Google is also very smart but it requires more knowledge and you need to know better what you are doing. That’s why it’s recommended to start with Bing and Yahoo. They are more lenient for the beginners.

Google is also more filled with highly experienced professionals than Bing and Yahoo. It means that you will more easily get ranked and traffic from Bing and Yahoo because the competition is not so high.

Earn More Than You Pay

In PPC, you pay for clicks. You pay that people end up to your website.

Make sure that you will earn more than you pay. If you pay $100 and earn $50 it’s not wise. But in the beginning, you can just start with little money to learn.

Don’t be afraid to make little mistakes with PPC because the mistakes are proof that you are trying. If you lose $10 in PPC it can probably teach you more than buying a $10 pizza from the local restaurant. (Read, Perfection – Not Required in Online Business)

This was only a little introduction to “PPC World”. I will be adding more information and step-by-step instructions how you can make your own PPC campaign.

But if you are already eager to learn more go right away to Wealthy Affiliate which teaches you literally everything you need to know about PPC and also all the other things related to earning money online.

How to Expand your online business?

In order to succeed in online business, you will need to be persistent and to some things over and over again to make the breakthrough.

My advice is to practice daily. Devote time every single day to your online business. Take little steps to the success. Think it this way,

“Everyday you are one day closer to the breakthrough.”

If you have been asking yourself  “How to Expand My Online Business?” Today I will give you 7 tasks that you can do daily to be more successful.

Writing valuable content is one of the most important things in the online business. You need to have valuable content in order to get people interested in your products or services.

Writing daily can definitely give an enormous boost to your online business. You don’t need to publish the post right away if you don’t have the time to write it until the end that day.

Writing daily will also boost your writing skills and your texts will be better all the time. And you will be able to write faster.

Remember also that the Perfection is not required in the online business.

2.Make Videos or Podcasts

Articles are not the only way to communicate online. Videos are a huge resource and I recommend to use them in your online business.

You can also link the videos in your articles to make the message more powerful. In videos, there can be text, pictures, music and many other things. So videos are very versatile and many times can convert better than the text only.

Take a little video and upload it to Youtube. Find the good keyword for the video and leave the link to your website and get more traffic.

Podcasts are also a powerful way provide value. Podcasts are easy because they can have listened to the bus, in a train, while driving or literally anywhere.

3.Search Keywords

Right keywords are the key to getting ranked in the search engines. Finding right keywords can lead to a huge traffic from the Google and other search engines. (See How to Find the Best Keywords for a Website?)

You don’t have to write the article right away.

You can, for example, search for 10 different keywords and write the posts other days.

Using proper keywords can literally boom the traffic in your website. For free.

4.Make Social Media Marketing

Social media can be the other free way to get a ton of traffic to your website.

Use the time to post in Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+. You can also search for more followers and engage with others. (See How to Get More Twitter Followers Instantly? – 5 Ultimate Tips)

Use the time to automate your posts and tweets. This will save a lot of time in the future.

Use social media to attract more visitors to your website.

5.Study and Explore New Things

We never should stop learning in life and the same applies to the online business. Read the articles and watch videos about the different subjects.

How to do better SEO, social media marketing or write better articles. Or go just through a new training program like Wealthy Affiliate, Chris Farrell Membership, Affilorama or Niche Blitzkrieg.

New ideas will take you to the next level and give you more inspiration and motivation.

6.Ask Questions

Einstein was asked how did you become a genius. He answered, “I never stopped asking questions.”

If there is anything you don’t know ask from someone. If there is a skill you would like to master, ask someone who has already mastered it.

Wealthy Affiliate is an online community where you can ask any questions related to the online businesses and you will always be answered. You can personally contact many successful online entrepreneurs.

Tony Robbins tells many times why successful people get the better results. They ask better questions. Start asking questions!

7.Search Images

As you have written the text or only got an idea of the new text, use the time to find great images. (See How to Find Millions of Free Images.)

If you don’t have the inspiration to write an article right away add first the images and write then.

The important part to be an efficient writer is to plan out your texts ahead. But it’s not always necessary to write the text first and then add images. You can have the vision of the text in your mind and then write it with the flow.

DO SOMETHING EVERY SINGLE DAY.

When you keep on doing the things every single day you are all the time taking little steps closer to the breakthrough and success.

How to Get More Twitter Followers Instantly? – 5 Ultimate Tips

How to Get More Twitter Followers Instantly

How to Get More Twitter Followers Instantly? – 5 Tips

Social media marketing is the crucial part of the online business. If you don’t use it you will miss a big part of the possible profits. Using social media can be also time-consuming if you don’t know what to do there.

Today I’m going to give you five tips how to get more followers on Twitter which is one of the biggest and powerful social media networks online.

As you get more followers you will get more visibility. And when you get more visibility you will get more potential customers to your business and more profit. You have also better possibilities to affect people’s life positively.

After reading this text you don’t need to wonder anymore how to get more Twitter followers instantly.

TIP 1 Provide Important Value

This is the foundation of social media marketing and online business in general. You will need to provide some value for the customers that they will be interested in you. Provide something that will make their life better or easier.

For example, if someone is looking for ways to lose weight, you can give him good tips.
If someone is looking for how to make business better, you can help him.

Give people something valuable. When the people have received something useful from you, they will initially trust you more and you will gain some authority in their eyes.

TIP 2 Follow People interested in the same subject

One great way to get more followers is to follow other people. That’s because they will probably follow you back.

Crucially important is to get “targeted followers’”. It means that they are interested in the same subject as you are. If you are interested in the online business you can follow the people that are also interested in the online business. You will more likely to get more retweets and likes when your followers are targeted and interested in the same subject.

It is often said that 10,000 targeted followers are better than 100,000 non-targeted followers.

That’s definitely true because what profit it will give to you if 100,000 people follow you but they aren’t interested at all in your subject?

Still, be careful not to follow (+unfollow) too many people at the time. Twitter rules prohibit this behavior and Twitter has banned some accounts who have made this.

But I would say that if you are not following more than 200 followers/day you shouldn’t be afraid of being banned.

How to get unlimited twitter followers

Follow people on Twitter to get more followers.

TIP 3 Use Twitter Tools

If you want to make social media marketing effectively, you will have to use tools. Using tools will save tons of hours of your time over the years.

The magical word in the online business is AUTOMATION. The more you automate the things the better.

If you use for example every day 5 minutes to do something that makes over 30 hours a year. If you write the same tweet 365 times you will lose 30 hours if we compare that you could use the tool that publishes the tweet 365 times for you.

Twitter tools will also help you to follow more targeted people faster. My favorite Twitter tools are Manageflitter and Tweepi.

TIP 4 Use Images

There are 3 reasons for this.

1.Images will get the attention better than only the text. You can also try to get people’s attention using CAPS LOCK or USE EXCLAMATION MARKS!!! But be aware that this can irritate some people.

2.Images are easier to find in Twitter. Some people may scroll your images afterwards and they may click the image you had published before two months. But it’s quite unlikely that they would find the text you published before two months.

3.Images help to remember the message more easily. People are visual by nature. We are just attracted to images and they help us to learn better. 1 word tells more than the thousand words. (See How to Get Free Images)

Tip 5 Use Motivational Quotes

People just love motivational quotes. They are short and easy to remember. People tend to retweet motivational quotes more than “average tweets”.

Retweets help you to get new followers because more people will see your profile. Think for example, if 1,000,000 could see your tweet how many of them will eventually follow you. Compare if 10,000 people see your tweet how many of them will follow you.

The changes are way higher for the first one.

Summary

With these 5 tips you will get more twitter followers for sure.

1.Provide important value
2.Follow People Interested in the same subject
3.Use Twitter tools
4.Use Images
5.Use Motivational Quotes

Follow me on Twitter.

The Ways to Avoid Scams Online – 5 Incredible Tips

Using these tips you will never fall into scams.

There are thousands of scams online. We can easily say that people have lost millions of euros in the pocket of online cheaters who are earning money illegally or with unethical ways.

I have written this article to help you avoid online scams and save your money from the cheaters. You should only use your money for the reliable online programs. I also made a video where I walk you through these 5 tips to avoid scams online and I give you some very practical tips. I believe you will enjoy it.

Tip 1 Avoid Too Big Promises

The old saying goes, “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is”. There are online programs with the false testimonies like, “I earned 10,000$ within the first week.”

That kind of promises may sound appealing but as far as I know that kind of promise is never true. Everything worthwhile in life requires efforts and it’s exactly the same with the online business.

Would you imagine to earn $10,000 within the first week in the normal business where you don’t invest a single dollar (or $10 maximum)? Don’t imagine to make $10,000/month right after starting in the online world. That’s not the reality.

I know that you can make $10,000/month, $20,000 or even $100,000/month online because many other people are doing it honestly. But the point is that all of those guys have made lots of work to achieve their online success.

Tip 2 Read the Reviews

There are a lot of reviews about the reliable online programs. If the program is legit and you can benefit from it, the chances are that someone else has used the program before and wrote the review about it.

I write reviews here in YourOnlineRevenue to tell you about the legit products and warn you about the scams. I write my reviews as honestly as I can, so you can trust in my words about the programs.

I have one experience when I didn’t use this principle. I went to one website that promised me a lot of Twitter followers for free fast.

The page looked like the scam and I thought that probably I need first to search more about this website in Google.

I was so excited about the possibility to get more followers that I didn’t read the reviews. The result: The website sent 2 spam messages to all of my Twitter followers.

The good thing was that I didn’t use any money there and I learned the lesson that it’s always important to investigate first if something seems a bit suspicious.

Many times I have been about to try the interesting product but then I have realized read some honest reviews before and decided not to waste my time.

Just make a quick search in Google, “Is PRODUCT_NAME a scam?” or “PRODUCT_NAME review”.

NOTE: Some people are writing positive reviews about the scam products because they may earn the commission if you join. Be careful and read for example 3 reviews before joining or find the reliable source where you can find the product.

Tip 3 Investigate the Founders

Everything depends on the leader/founder. Is the founder reliable? Does he shows his face and identity or is he unknown like the mystical Q in “TooDamnEasy” program.

Can you find information about the founders on the internet? What other people say about them?

Do they have a long experience? Do they use their own principles in order to succeed?

Tip 4 Ask Reliable Online Entrepreneurs

In Wealthy Affiliate, you can find persons who have a very long experience in the online business. Some of them have been doing online business even 15 years.

You can contact them personally in WA and in my experience they have always answered the questions.

Their eyes are experienced to see which one is a scam and which one is a legit program.

You can also always ask us in YourOnlineRevenue.com and we promise to give find you the honest answer. Just leave the comment below and most of the time we will come up with the answer within 24 hours.

Tip 5 Investigate the Free Material First

Usually, you can find the free material from the program. In Wealthy Affiliate, you will get 10 free lessons, 2 free websites and other features for free. You can try if the program is really legit or not.

All of the programs don’t provide free material but you can find it from the other websites.

For example, Chris Farrell Membership (a legit program) has free teachings in Youtube. You can see if the program is really providing value.

Niche Blitzkrieg is also a legit program but there is not a free trial. Still there is a full money-back guarantee and you can find a lot of reviews on the Internet.

My #1 recommendation Wealthy Affiliate provides 20 free videos lessons for free. After studying their free material you can well decide if you want to continue to their premium program or not.

BONUS Insight!

I have been in the online business for a good while. One natural thing I have noticed is that the more I review”Make money online” -products, the faster I spot scams.

Many scams just follow same patterns and they give you the same story in a little bit different covers.

Let’s take for example three programs Phoenix Power Rising, Pure Leverage System and My Lead System Pro. All of them are based on the following idea:

1.You join to their program
2.You invite other people to join
3.You make money when your referrals buy something.

All of them have very high membership fee which will motivate you to refer other people so you could earn back the money you have lost to the program.

When you gain experience on your online business your eyes will spot scam products much faster than before. In addition, you will see what it really takes to make lots of money online.

The Ways to Avoid Scams Online – Summary

Using these 5 ways to avoid scams online

1 Avoid Too Big Promises
2 Read the Reviews
3 Investigate the founders
4 Ask Reliable Online Entrepreneurs
5 Investigate the Free Material First

You will never fall into the scams.

If you can’t find any information about the program from the Internet, no one of the online entrepreneurs know about it, the program doesn’t offer any free material I would say that the programs are a scam. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY IN SCAMS.

What is Affiliate Marketing Online? – Explained Simply

What is Affiliate Marketing Online

Think about big companies, for example, Amazon, Target or Walmart. They sell millions of products every day. Would you like to have your own part of the winnings made in their sales? That’s possible through affiliate marketing.

Have you heard that term “affiliate marketing”?

Today I’m going to explain to you what is affiliate marketing means and how you can earn money doing that.

Amazon, Target, Walmart and many other (also very small) companies have “affiliate programs”. That means that anyone can sell their products.

You put the link to your website, social network, email list or anywhere else. When someone clicks the link and ends up buying some of their products you will get the commission of the sold products.

The commission varies a lot  in different affiliate programs. For example, the commission in Amazon’s products is 4-10% while other companies may give even 80% commission. And everything in between. (Here is a great and illustrative lesson by the successful affiliate marketer how affiliate marketing works in practice)

Why Being an Affiliate Marketer is Great?

You don’t need former experience or skills. You don’t need own products. But you need to be willing to learn.

The process of affiliate marketing is simple. Company A sells products. You (affiliate) leave the link somewhere on the Internet. Person A buys the product. The company gets money and you get money. Simple?

The great thing is that many times you can get the commission from the products that you are not even linking!

If you have the link for example to Amazon kindle books. Someone clicks the link but end up buying men’s boxers, you will get the commission. If someone buys the $500 TV, you will get the commission.

There are no income limits in affiliate marketing. Do you know Pat Flynn? He is the guy who makes over $100,000/month online and a big amount of his success comes from affiliate marketing.

Who is Affiliate Marketing for?

Affiliate marketing can be a great way to earn for anyone. Here are some examples

  • If you are a student and want to earn extra income
  • If you are a housewife and want to earn extra income
  • If you want to live anywhere you want and earn money online
  • If you want to be your own boss = entrepreneur
  • If you want to earn passive income
  • If you want to sell products that are highly profitable
  • You name it! 🙂
What is Affiliate Marketing Online

Is he an affiliate marketer? Probably.

In my opinion, affiliate marketing is just a great resource but many people are not even aware of that. I didn’t know this opportunity before but I’m glad that I have found it.

There Are Tons of Affiliate Programs on the Internet!

Amazon, Target and Walmart are by no means the only affiliate programs. There are affiliate programs for any niche that you can imagine. Just write to Google “some niche + affiliate program” and you will find an affiliate program in any niche.

Wealthy Affiliate also helps you to find relevant affiliate programs that you may want to be part of.

Even the smallest niches have affiliate programs and you will be astonished how many they are.

Remember, affiliate marketing is not a MLM-program or anything related!

Are You Willing to Pay the Price for Success?

Are You Willing to Pay the Price for Success

“We see their glory but don’t understand the story.”

Have you seen that iceberg already in my Wealthy Affiliate review?

In my opinion, it illustrates greatly the price for success. How do you understand success?

One great definition of success is “The correct or desired result of an attempt.” In other words, you do something and when you get the desired result, you have succeeded.

What does success mean in online business? For many people, it means extra income, full-time income or financial independence. What is a success for you in online business? $200/month, $1,000/month or $10,000/month?

There is Always a Price for Success!

Let’s say that you want to earn the full-time income online, working from home. In order to achieve that, you need to work a certain amount of time. You need to learn the skills to provide value for people. Then you need to reach the people for example in your website, social network or on the email list.

First of all, this requires time. You can’t expect to learn everything in one day. But you can expect to learn it in one year.

But the interesting thing is that when people start the online business and confronts the first failure (see the iceberg), many people quit. Some people succeed for the first try but most of the successful people have failed many times before making the real breakthrough.

Thomas Edison failed 10 000 times before inventing the light bulb. How many times you are willing to fail?

Before I thought that failure is the opposite of success. Now I know that failure is the part of success.

Disappointments and THE GOOD NEWS

We disappoint usually when our expectations don’t come true in the real world. That may happen in our life. We don’t know what the future brings.

But remember the Good news! There are also a lot of situations when you get more than you have expected. Like this guy who started earning over $10,000/month after working online for a bit over one year.

Don’t let your expectations define  your success.

Sometimes you will get more than you expected, sometimes less.

Focus on giving your best and you will get what you earn. If you get fewer rewards than you expected think how you could work better next time and get rewarded bigger.

Price for Online Success

Success online isn’t different than success offline. There are no shortcuts. (Although some scammers so claim falsely!)

You will need to work. You will need to learn. You will need to be persistent.

But think about the consequences. Work for a “normal job” for 3 years. You start by earning $2,500/month. And after 3 years you are still earning $2,500/month or if things go well $2,600/month. Would it be better to work online for 3 years and start earning $10,000/month?

I’m not saying that you will automatically earn $10,000/month after working 3 years online. It depends on highly how much you are willing to work and pay the price. As I said before you will get more or less as you have expected. But don’t let your expectations define your success.

Having an online business requires also some discipline as any other important thing. You may just want to scroll Facebook news feed but that doesn’t build your business. You need to focus on the most important things. Good concentration will give you better results in less time. (Remember Pareto 80/20 Principle)

Good Concentration -> Good Results. Bad Concentration -> Bad Results.

Are You Willing to Pay the Price?

Those who pay the price will get the prize. Nothing worthwhile in life comes without work and the price. You know it’s easy to get a fast pleasure eating fast food, drink beer, horse around with your friends or and doing things like that.

If you want to be fit, earn $10,000/month or achieve something worthwhile, honestly, sometimes you need to delay the gratification.

But think about the prize. Is it worth it? Where do you want to be after 3 years? If having an own online business and earning passive income would be great results start your own online business in Wealthy Affiliate for free today!

Alexa also gives statistics of the many other metrics where are the people located using that site, how engaged people are, what is their gender, education and so on. (You can follow me on Pinterest.)

But how reliable Alexa rankings really are and is it important to get your Alexa ranking better? Let’s find out!

How Does Alexa Get Their Data?

Alexa gets their data from people who have installed Alexa toolbar in their browsers. Alexa then tracks the traffic of those users and gets the statistics according to the users of the toolbar.

There are also other plugins and toolbars that Alexa uses to track their traffic.

Still, Alexa certainly doesn’t get the track from all of the users on the internet but only a little amount of it.

Alexa ranking can give you some insight of your website popularity and traffic but it’s not the most reliable one. There are many reasons why you shouldn’t concentrate on the Alexa ranking too much.

If you want to know how your (or any other) website is ranked in Google I recommend you to use Jaaxy. It’s Free to start and very easy to use.

Example from the Successful Online Entrepreneur

 

The highly successful Online Entrepreneur and creator of the Wealthy Affiliate Kyle told his own experience. He wanted to test the reliability of Alexa by his own websites. He has many own websites and he chose to compare two of them, let’s call them Website A and Website B.

Website A got unique 20,000+ visitors per day while Website B got “only” 1,000+ visitors per day. So according to that, Website A’s Alexa ranking must be way better than B’s ranking. Was it?

NO! Website B was getting actually double the traffic that A was getting according to Alexa. So Alexa’s ranking and statistics were totally false.

You Can Actually Buy Alexa Rankings

There are different tools and packages that Alexa sells. I don’t recommend them. You can get the same (and actually more accurate) information for free from other tools like Google Analytics.

Alexa rankings aren’t reliable also for the reason that there are many ways to manipulate the Alexa traffic.

Buy Alexa Ranking

People are actually paying money to get their Alexa ranking better

If you are interested in that kind of tools you can find them on Google but I don’t recommend to use them because Alexa ranking is not so important. Use your money for better tools like for Wealthy Affiliate premium to learn more about earning money online.

Alexa Ranking Tells Something but…

According to Alexa, top-ranked web pages on the internet are

1.Google
2.Facebook
3.Youtube

Yahoo, Wikipedia, Twitter and Amazon are also in the top 10. So we can definitely say that Alexa ranking gives you some information about the traffic and ranks in the search engines. These websites are highly popular and deserve their place in the top.

Still, I wouldn’t concentrate too much on the Alexa ranking because

1.It doesn’t show traffic accurately
2.The rank can be easily manipulated (you can buy better rankings).

Instead, I recommend you to concentrate more important things in your Online Business like creating valuable content, SEO and others.

5 Benefits of Having Own Domain Name, and Where to Get it?

where to buy a domain name

Let me start saying that getting your own domain is nowadays dead easy. You don’t need special skills or knowledge.

Would you like to have your website’s name be “yourwebsite.wordpress.com” or “yourwebsite.com”. I prefer the latter.

5 Benefits of Having Your Own Domain

1.You Own a Website. When you have an own domain, you now have some own space on the internet. And all the time you build and develop your website your space gets bigger and better.

2.Control. Having the own domain gives you the freedom do literally anything you what within your website. Design, context, text, images, links, money making sources, everything is under your control. You can even make your website a social media or community if you want.

3.Ranks better. Having an own domain seems to rank better in search engines than subdomains, like xxxxxxx.wordpress.com, xxxxxxxxx.blogpsot.com, xxxxxxxx.siterubix.com or others.  Subdomains can also rank very well if the website is high quality but own domains tend to rank better.

4.Brand/Authority. Do you know the Brands like Youtube, Facebook or Amazon. Those are all highly successful websites and at the same time ultimately valuable brands. Those brands are worth millions (or even billions). Having your own domain gives you credibility and reliability because your visitors will recognize you easier.

5.Domain is an asset. Its value grows. Think your website as a real estate. You own the land and the house from the country called Internet. As you build your house (your website) bigger and better its value grows. All the time you put effort to make it better its value rises on the Internet. You can actually own many websites like you can own many houses but be careful not to concentrate on too many things at the same time.

There are also other benefits but these are at least very crucial reasons. Let’s go into the process of getting the own domain name.

Namecheap – Cheap, Easy and Practical

I have bought my own domain names from Namecheap.com. Some of the cheapest domain names are under 1€ for the first year but most of the domain names cost a bit under 10€/year. With he price of one pizza you can have an own domain. Certainly not expensive.

You can search for different domain names by typing your search in the box and click enter.

Benefits of Having Own Domain Name

NameCheap shows you which domain names are available.

The page shows you the results. You can buy your domain name can end to .com, .org, .net or whatever you want. Still, I recommend you to have .com domain name because they rank better in the search engines.

After viewing the results, you can consider which one of the domain names you want to buy. You add it to the cart, create an account (takes 30 seconds) and you have an own domain name.

To be honest, before getting interested in website stuff and online business I thought that having an own domain name (like mywebsite.com) would need some skills and it would be difficult. But as you can see it’s actually dead easy!

Domain Hosting

After you have your own domain you will need to get domain hosting.

There are countless places where to buy domain hosting on the Internet. I’m using domain hosting by Wealthy Affiliate which includes in the premium membership. Wealthy Affiliate’s domain hosting is reliable and high-quality.

I have never had any problems with Wealthy Affiliate‘s domain hosting and they have 24/7 support if you have any issues.

Summary

Own domain name is certainly worth it. It costs only about 10$/year but the benefits can be enormous.

I recommend you to get an own domain NameCheap because it’s easy and fast to use. It doesn’t require any special skills and as its name says, it’s very cheap.
