Before starting your new site, you are going to need to decide on a great domain name for your site. This sounds easy enough, but with millions of domain names already registered, you are likely going to be in for quite the challenge.
Along with picking a great domain name for your site, you will also need to have a web host as well. More often than not, your web hosting company will also allow you to register a domain name, and some of them (like Bluehost) will give you a domain name for free at the time of sign up.
No matter where you are in the site ownership process, this article will help you get started in the process.
