Once we have chosen the plan, let’s create the domain, that is, the name of your site.

 

Create the website domain

It’s time to choose a name for your site. If you have a company, the domain can be your company name by adding the .com extension at the end. If you work alone or want to try your own business, you can use your first and last name or a name related to what you want to do, for example, usainbolt.com or 007.com.

How to create a cheap and professional website

SiteGround is the site that allows you to host your website affordably. There are other hosts that allow you to save. I chose SiteGround because it is also the best in terms of performance, updates and security. This way you can be sure to give the best digital experience to your site visitors. This also influences search engines which will give you greater visibility and better rankings.

The .com extension for the domain is still the most used, especially for commercial activities. If it is difficult to find your site with this extension, you can choose your country domain, such as co.uk, de, nl, au, se, in, ca etc..

Conclusion

Congratulations! You have created your site and started your digitalization process. Just with your website alone, you appear professional and credible. You can share your ideas and personality and attract clients and people interested in what you do and think. All in a simple, economical and professional way.
