Reason 1:  Your own domain name looks professional, more permanent, less "here today gone tomorrow."

First impressions count even with a domain name.

What looks better to you? More professional?


Having your own domain name instantly conveys greater credibility.  Set yourself apart from the competition - your impression with a domain name is one of professionalism instead of being one of 100 MILLION affiliate marketers all hawking the latest, the greatest affiliate product/service. 

It's all SOCIAL Proof when you tie your domain name into all your social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram,YouTube etc) 

If you have your own Amazon Store, or ClickBank Store, you have a definite advantages having it integrated into your own domain name. 
You don't want ANY reason for people to question the professionalism or integrity or permanence of your business. 

If the mentioned reasons don't convince you of the value and essentialism of having your own domain name, I have one word for you Google.
If yoy want your site to be indexed then you need Google. What does Google like best? Actual domain names with real and legitimate content.  

Reason 2:  Redirects are easy when you have your own domain name

When you are provided an affiliate link to promote, you can easily set up your own domain name and have it point to the affiliate site. Easy and quick to do. If your affiliate link / program changes no problem. Just direct your domain name to your new Affiliate link or site. Remember when you own the domain name, you won't lose traffic or backlinks every time you change your affiliate programs.  Your domain name stays with you, grows with you.  

Reason 3:  Multiple domain names are cheap

Book your own domain name for as little as $10 per year.
Book multiple domain names and set up multiple redirects to your affiliate links or site.  Terrific for building niche sites with key word domain names. 
Want to book your own domain name now,

Build your brand, build your niche, build your web footprint, your social media circles, and your business for YEARS and YEARS to come.
Your products may change, your affiliate links may change, your niche may change but your domain name (and your business) can keep growing. .  

Reason 4: Build your brand or niche with word specific domain name(s)

Having your own domain name allows you to develop a site if you choose. Add content, your contact details, your specialties, key words,  landing pages (as many as you like or need for your various affiliate programs). Site Hosting is also cheap, and you can easily use one of many website editors to build your site on your domain name.   Integrate in your blog, a newsletter (list building), social media streams, YouTube channel, target your audience, direct traffic and more. Build it grow it, profit from it now and for years to come.  

Reason 5. Widgets

Having your own domain based website gives you the option to integrate really cool (and powerful sales tools) like LIVE CHAT using Facebook.  
If using WordPress you have lots of choices for integrating easily interactive widgets everything from payment links, shopping cart, social media sharing, auto-posting, video, apps and more.

  • I agree with this article for many reasons, most of which are mentioned. The added since of running a professional Site ties in with owning a business and having those whom you wish to do business with, feeling excited and secure about doing business with you. I am now setting up my own name as a domain. Thanks Sandi for this article.


    • Hi Luther, Glad you found the article helpful, thanks for saying so.

  • I agree too, as I own lots of free, which is a WordPress blog based site, I decided not to upgrade to thier business plan

    Which means I'm unable to make use of any plugin's, but having used a WordPress blog with lots of plugin's in the past, it required constant backups before updating

    Too much of a headache
