Next step? Go ahead and purchase a domain from Google Domains or Go Daddy. Domains can range from $10-???, well unlimited. Some domains already owned by individuals are sold / bid on for as high as $10,000+ (wish I had bought kimkardashian.com right now). Regardless, you will to pay a fee yearly to renew your domain.
You want your domain name to be fairly simple, catchy, and memorable.
As far as hosting goes, I prefer BlueHost. BlueHost is one of the most popular hosting services and is average when it comes to pricing. Try to sign up for the yearly hosting package – you will get a better rate!
My advice? When creating an actual website, choose WordPress (avoid Wix at all costs). WordPress perfect for SEO purposes and are overall much easier to use than their competitors.
Alright… ready for the next step….?
