As you’re thinking about creating a website, it’s helpful to define your goals. Your website is your online storefront and presence. It’s important that it represents you in a professional manner. Beyond that, what else does the website need to accomplish? For one thing, your website needs to quickly tell visitors what you do and what you offer. You want visitors to arrive at your site, read a few lines, and think, “Ah, I’m in the right place.” It’s also helpful to answer questions your visitors might have. Put yourself in their position and think about what’s most helpful to them
Good question. Some businesses have done that successfully. But the main reason against this strategy is simple: you don’t own the social media platforms.

The correct answer should be YOU. (The domain name is the name of your website, the something-something.com that represents you.) Even if you choose to have a web designer set up your domain name and host your website, the domain name and the hosting should be registered in your name or your company name. Otherwise, you don’t own it and if your web designer disappeared off the face of the earth, you would not own your website name.
