I just registered a domain name. Now what?
Domain name registration is one of the most important steps to creating an online presence, but what should you do next? Well, that all depends on your online goals. A list of popular online goals is listed below — In most cases, more than one will make sense for you and your company. Check them out:
Share Information: If you want customers to learn more about your business when they visit your domain name, then a website is the way to go. On your website you can list contact information, information about your services/products, testimonials, and much more! You can use Website Builder to publish your site quickly.
Contact Customers: Email is a must if you want a custom email address that your friends or customers can use to contact you. Gmail® and Hotmail® addresses are commonly used for personal email and aren’t professional. If you purchase a domain name like coolexample.com, you can have an email like email@example.com.
Sell Products and Services: If your business sells products, then an eCommerce site is exactly what you need. It lets you collect payments online, share information about your products and services, and track online orders. Just think of how many customers you can reach when you’re available online! Many customers use Quick Shopping Cart® to create their online stores.
Make Money: If you are interested in selling your domain name for a profit, Go Daddy Auctions® can make this possible. Many customers make a significant amount of money by “flipping” domain names. If you think you have something worth selling, give it a shot! You have nothing to lose. Click here to learn more about Go Daddy Auctions.
