Get Your Name for Christmas

Gus Wagner


What do you want to find underneath your Christmas tree and what do you really need?

Now that all of the Black Friday's and Cyber Monday's are over. I would suggest you should ask Santa for your name. Well, at least your online one.

You have probably Googled yourself before to see what the internet has to say about you but have you ever looked up to see if your personal name (Gus Wagner for example) is available as a domain? Chances are it might be available and, if so, you should grab it now as an investment in yourself.

Most registry services, we currently prefer GoDaddy, allow you to register your domain name for around $10 a year. It gets more affordable as you add years to your subscription as well.

Owning your own name also allows you to have a truly personalized email address like, Farrah@FarrahFite.com or similar. It's the 21st century and you shouldn't be using AOL, Gmail, or Outlook.com for your professional email address. TWEET THIS

What else can you do with your personalized domain? You can create your own website about yourself and your professional or personal achievements or you can point the domain to go to your LinkedIn or Facebook account thereby making it easier for people to find you.

So unless you want your name to be owned by someone else with your name, or someone that just wants to own your name, be sure to ask Santa for your domain for Christmas. TWEET THIS

Or just buy it for yourself!
