Alright girl, so you have this bomb af business idea and finally decided it was time to claim it for the online space. How do you do this? By snagging your domain! For my tech challenged ladies (no shade) here’s a run down:

Your domain is what you type into the browser or url. Think of it like an empty plate at ya man’s family’s BBQ.

 

Examples: www.babetoboss.co // www.fashionnova.com // www.emmeliedelacruz.com

Purchasing your own domain 1) let’s you #securethebag meaning that you don’t have to worry about your actual business name and domain being different because that tacky. 2) It gives you control in the online space.

You and your brand go right along with it and that’s just an extra level of stress you don’t need.
