Yeah, I know, I know – I told you a couple months ago that, despite my reputation for being the techiest tech techster REALTOR in Tri-Cities, WA I’m not really THAT amazing.
But yesterday we had a web site class here at the brokerage, and people were trying to figure out what their domain names would be. Unless you have a difficult /unusual first or last name, a great idea is to use your real name as your domain name.
So, my suggestion is as follows – have a baby or a young child? Register his or her domain name now. Chances are, whatever they do in life as they grow older, they’ll need a web presence (even if they’re simply blogging about how you’re the worst parent in the world!).
A few years ago, we were contacted by a college student who wanted to run for president of his student government organization. He had the same name as our son, and he wanted to buy our son’s domain, just for a year, to launch his campaign. We didn’t let him, because once it’s out of your hands, it’s out of your hands.
I know their are a million things we have to do as parents, but this one is inexpensive, takes a tiny bit of time, and will help them out immensely.
