Name


When you set out to create a website, you must already have in mind what you want to use it for right?

If not you need to think about that, as this will have an influence on the name you give your website, you will want to name it after something similar to the purpose it will serve.

For example, I want to create an online presence where I want to reach out to people on the importance of using organic products for babies.

My website name should reflect such, so I go for something like “baby Organic Blossom”

I hope you get my drift now?

Though some people do prefer to use their names to represent their product.

But it is all up to you, you just need to go with what you think reflects the image of your brand the more.

So once you have your name set, you will need a tittle to go with this.

In most cases, while just starting out, you can choose your title to be the same as your website and change it later if you decide you no longer want that.

But your website name cannot be changed except you choose to create another one.

Note: when we talk about website name, we are also referring to your domain name, so where ever you see website name or domain name, kindly be aware they are the same thing. We might say domain is where your website is found.

Choose Domain


This is where the domain we mentioned earlier comes in. When using the SiteRubix site builder, you have an option to select from three different types of domain to build your website.

On a free domain

Free to register domain, known as subdomains, as you do not own the webspace they are built upon.

On Domain, I Own

You can choose to build your website on a domain that you already own. your very own webspace.

Register A Domain

Or You can buy your own domain as you build your website. This will cost you about $10 to $15/year.

But since we are building a free website, you should select the first one, on a free domain.

Then you input your chosen name

make sure to use small letters and the names should be put together.

If you are lost on name ideas, you can use the free searches this awesome keyword tool provides to check out available names.

If you are not familiar with a keyword tool, check out this post.

Website Title


Here you will select the title you want for your website. In most cases, your website domain may also serve as the title for your website, or you can choose to go for something else.

It is totally up to you to decide what you want.

But here, we are sticking to the same name as our domain which is Baby Organic Blossom

When writing your title, it is better to capitalize the first letters, we believe it helps give it more presence. And you will have to keep the words separated.

i.e. Baby Organic Blossom ( feels great)

and: baby organic blossom ( looks so tiny)

or: BABY ORGANIC BLOSSOM (seems too loud)

which one would you prefer?

Go for it!
