Most times when a client wants a website, they will leave it to the designer to take care of everything. This includes buying their domain name. Most designers are trustworthy so the point of this is not to scare you at all. The reason you will want to buy your own domain is because it is literally your property.
Buying your own domain name is really simple, if it is readily available and takes a few more steps if someone is selling it to you. You can visit a trusted domain registrar’s website and search for the name and go through a few prompts to own your domain.
By owning your domain, it is easier to connect it to a website, transfer, add encryption, and update your contact and payment information.
Your domain is similar to the deed to your home. You would not readily hand this over or trust someone else to hold on to it in hopes that they will give it back to you when asked.
There is no benefit to having someone else register your domain for you if you are able to purchase it in your own. If you can shop online, you can buy your own domain. It’s that easy.
This ensures that your domain is always safe and you have complete control of your property.
