B250 Lessons Learned Week 3

Talking about domains and hosting this week has emphasized the point that we need to define our priorities as soon as possible. When we know if we want flexibility or power in our web builder, it really helps narrow down what direction you want to go in and who to choose to help you do that.

A sneaky trick we talked about this week is that you can buy domains similar to your competition, so that people are more likely to be sent to your site and so it’s harder for your competition to grow.

I am going to try and use my host as my web builder so I can keep everything under one roof and not have to worry about switching my domain to someone else. It seems like a pain because whoever you got your domain from doesn’t want you leaving their business. It is a greedy capitalist move that makes total sense, but I would rather not have to deal with it.
