What is a URL? It’s the www thing you get for your website. For example, you have seen here how I just became a member of the Aaachoo Social Network, and that I’m also a distributor for YooTalk powered by Global Pros.
Each of these companies gave me a standard website (www.yootalk.com/mattsavage) for YooTalk, and Aaachoo gives you a basic link, in my case http://www.aaachoo.com/index2.php?siteId=5543 . Both of these options let your potential customers land on your page, yet they are both confusing.
The solution is to buy a URL (www) address from GoDaddy, for about $10 bucks for the year. Simply go into GoDaddy.com, and then search for a URL address you like…in my case I searched for different ones for YooTalk, ie YooTalkWeTalk.com, Yootalkamerica.com, yootalk2me.com, yootalk4less.com, etc. For Aaachoo, I searched for options like aachoo4me.com, aachoosocialnetwork.com, my-aachoo.com, etc. Finally I settled on www.aaachoonet.com, and I also bought www.aachoonet.com, just to make sure I got the A’s right, and make sure that if someone puts in either 3 a’s, or 2 a’s, that they’ll pull up my site. Call me Einstein, call me Edison, call me simple. It’s all about the simple for simpleminded folks like us.
The result is that it makes it a lot easier for me to advertise my page, and makes it natural for potential clients to go there. People like to see www, and then they like to see .com. It make them warm and fuzzy, you know how dumb we all are.
No matter what company or what brand your building, GoDaddy makes it easy and inexpensive to register URLs.
