Domain Name Registration and Domain Forwarding for Newbies

Have you ever thought about making your own site, but did not know where to begin?  The very first step on the road to making your own site is registering your domain name. This usually means that you're essentially paying money so as to get your website's name at a dot com arrangement. 

If you're fortunate, your domain name won't be already obtained, and you'll have the ability to enrol the site's name to get a comparatively low yearly fee. In the event the title you want is accepted, you have a couple of choices. You could select a different suffix, such as,, so long as these haven't already been purchased as well.

 While many sites that offer domain registry also doubles as a domain forwarding service, it is up to you to decide if this is what you need. If you just want to run a blog or other similar sites, consider creating an account on a site, and forward your registered domain there.

This brings up the question, "what is domain forwarding?" Domain forwarding is when you pay for your domain name, but assign it to an existing website. This is useful as it does not require you to pay for server space to host your web site. However, it has some disadvantages too. It will be harder to monetize your website if you just forward your domain to an account on the website you do not run unless you specifically sign up on a web site that in some way facilitates this.
