Picking Your Domain Name





Usually, author websites have the author’s name as the domain name. Some authors have their nom-de-plume. Others have a cute and catchy phrase that identifies them and make them unique.

However, if you do not want to have a website or using a blog that has static pages, then your domain name stands by itself. Make sure that the domain name is available. You might not be able to get the one you want, but you can always add something to it to make it unique, or change the .com to.net or other.


A catchy, easy to remember domain name can bring you more readers. This is what’s placed after the www. You can pick your name, your pen name, or even the name of your series or one of the characters. Pick one that is best suited to your writing. Remember, it will be with you for a long time. Think name branding.
