Did you see this Squarespace Super Bowl ad from 2017?
It demonstrates why NOW is the time to register Your Own Name
Unless you have a very unusual name, there are probably SEVERAL people with your exact same name.
Just do a quick search on Google or LinkedIn or Facebook to see for yourself. And once somebody buys this domain name, it is unlikely it will be available again for many years. Whoever buys it will be using it for their own personal branding or business and won't want to let it go, for any price.
What you can do with a personal domain name?
- Use it for an ultra-personal email address! You can create as many different email addresses as you'd like using this domain.
- Create a simple personal web page with your contact information so your friends or business colleagues can easily get in touch. You could list all of your contact points, like your Facebook profile, Twitter account, Instagram, email address, or anything you want.
- Set your domain to automatically redirect to wherever you want: your Facebook page, your business web site, a social media acoount, etc. — no new web page required.
- Everybody you know will easily remember where to find you... by simply typing your personal domain name into their browser.
Once you purchase this domain name, as long as you own it, nobody else can use it. It's yours and yours alone.
But if you miss this one brief opportunity, it's gone forever when someone else buys it. And there are a lot of people with this same exact name.
Do it now while it's still available, and on sale!
You are purchasing directly from the domain registrar, so your payment is safe and secure.
The domain registrar uses an escrow process to protect both the buyer and the seller. In most cases you will take possession of the domain immediately.
