How To Start Your #Authopreneur Blog: Buy A Domain Name (Part 1)

Are you curious as to how to blog about your #authopreneur and #indiepublishing adventures?

Wait no more! Help is here!

In this 5 part video series, How To Start Your #Authorpreneur Blog, I teach you the very technical side of how to start your authorpreneur blog via a self-hosted WordPress site.

Trust me, It’s a lot easier than it seems.

In part 1, I teach you how to buy a domain name.

So what exactly is a domain name?

A domain name is your home address on the web. Similar to your physical home address, your domain name tells people where you are located.

For example, my domain name is It’s where people can find me online. For my domain name purchase, I used Namecheap. It cost about $10. (You can purchase your domain name here.)

When trying to buy your domain name, you want a name that’s catchy. Don’t be afraid to add your own personality. Remember this is your home, and you want people to remember you and feel welcome.

Try to avoid difficult names, double consonants or too long, complicated names.

I think if you use your real name or pen name for a domain name, it’s a great and effective way to brand, but ultimately your domain name is your choice.

Now let’s get to it. Watch the video as I break it down for you.
