Every now and again I find something online that I really feel will change the way people interact online. The way they setup websites, and actually remove some of the stumbling blocks that could keep people from venturing online with their own blog or website.
People often ask me how they can setup a website for their business or a private blog. I then usually reply by telling them to get a domain name for their website or blog and then to start with the rest. I believe that you should have your own unique address before you can really be online. I know that you can have a subdomain at many blogging and hosting websites, but having your own name as a domain just adds to the credibility of your business or your blog.
Because of the fear of the Internet and the belief that it is very difficult and unsafe and expensive to get your domain I am happy to report that you can now get your domain and your hosting free of charge.
Just simply visit www.co.cc and register your free personal .co.cc domain name. If you want to register a prime domain name you may have to pay, but rather just search for a name that is free of charge. My own name (www.nicobaird.com) and also www.clickkliek.co.cc was free of charge. The prime domain names can be purchased for $3 and above and if you feel you want to register 100 domains it will cost you $10.
The .co.cc domain extension may not be as well know as .com or .co.za but remember that it does not matter if you live in Langenhoven Park, Heuwelsig or Fauna, as long as you give your correct address people will be able to find you.
If you already have a blog that is being hosted as a subdomain at blogging websites like Blogger.com, you can easily forward and mask your new free domain to point to your current hosting package.
