A Domain name is your personal identity on the cyberspace. With your domain name nobody can lay claim to your identity except you and you alone. People are continuously asking me; ‘why do I need a personal domain’? A personal domain is a custom web address that allows you to take control of your online identity by directing visitors to your site to view your products and services. Technically speaking one can say a Domain name is used in URLs to identify particular Web pages. For example, in the URL http://www.tomsulayman.com
On the Internet, your domain name is your unique identity. Any individual, business or organization planning to have an Internet presence should invest in a domain name. Having your own domain name, website and email addresses will give you and your business a more professional look.
The following are my 10 reasons you must have a personal domain.
1. It Makes You Look Professional: Having your domain name and going further to put in a website will make you look like someone who is serious about his business outlook.
2. Increase Your Visibility: There’s no doubt about this. I’m not going to say much about this than to tell you to google my name and see what happens. Your domain name will expose you to a lot of cyber coverage and visibility.
3. Protect Your Reputation: Unless you are perpetuating illegality with your name. One area I know very well where your reputation can globally secured, respected and protected is to have your domain name.
