Domain Names and Web Hosting
Web Hosting is something you're eventually going to need if you're interested in building a real Internet marketing business. For instance, the website you are looking at right now is "lifetimeprosperity.com" and that is MY own personal domain. I picked it out about eight years ago.
The first thing you need to do is to pick a Domain Name that appeals to you and fits what you do online. Then you have to see if it's available. Many .com names are already taken, but yours may still be available. One neat idea is to simply use your own name.
So, what you need to do is go to a Domain Registration site and check the availability of the name you have chosen. You can do that at http://godaddy.com or http://namecheap.com . or any number of domain registrars. I have chosen these two because they are very reasonably priced. There are many others.
Once you have a domain name registered, your next step is to get a Web Hosting account. You see, your domain name needs to be hosted somewhere if you want to be able to upload websites to the web for others to see. There are literally hundreds of choices for web hosting, and I have only used a couple of them. For instance, I have had my site hosted at GVO for about 6 years now and I have been very happy with them. They provide phenomenal support, and their "uptime" is very high, meaning that they very rarely go offline for any length of time, which is extremely important.
GVO is also a business opportunity in itself, and for that reason, it's not the cheapest web host. It pays on multiple levels, and so once you get a few people in your downline, you can actually enjoy free web hosting. However, if are looking for the most inexpensive hosting account, you may want to go with http://godaddy.com. You can actually get both your domain name and your hosting account at one place, which can simplify things for you.
As I said, there are literally hundreds of places where you can get both a domain name and a web hosting account. If you decide to get a domain name at godaddy, and then you want it hosted at GVO, that is an easy thing to do. All you need to do is go into your godaddy account, select your domain name, and change the domain servers to point to your GVO account. I know it sounds like gibberish if you haven't ever done it, but believe me, it's nothing.
I have some websites hosted at godaddy as well as GVO. I have never had any trouble with either.
Once you have your own domain and hosting, you are going to want to build yourself a website! Here is a wonderful FREE website builder: MyFreeWebsiteBuilder.com.
An Autoresponder is an ESSENTIAL marketing tool. They allow you to capture the names and email addresses of people who are interested in your offers. This lets you follow up with those prospects over and over again on Auto-Pilot.
There are many Autoresponders on the net, some paid and some free. I don't care for the free ones because they usually include another member's ad at the top of every outgoing email...and that's not good for you!
Aweber is the Autoresponder that I use. If you are looking for the Rolls Royce of Autoresponders, this is it. Highest Email Deliverability, Unlimited Campaigns, Superior Customer Support, Easy to set up. Make sure YOUR followup messages get delivered by using the very best.
