Why You Need .Me Doman Name

Having a personal domain is one of the best ways to assert your authority online, showcase your talents, manage your reputation, and maintain a professional presence. Tamar, Namecheap Community Manager explained these reasons further in a blogpost:

PROTECT YOUR REPUTATION

What are people finding when they search for your name? Are they seeing your Facebook page? Your Twitter feed? If you owned your <firstname><lastname>.me, you could control your online reputation and push down all those negative search results.

How does that work? There are books and books in ORM (online reptuation management), but the idea is simple: put great content on your web page and link to the good stuff. There’s more where that came from, but that’s the idea.

SHOWCASE YOUR TALENTS

Are you great at web design? A funny videographer? A budding artist? A poet? Or are you none of these, but still have a great curriculum vitae or resume you want everyone to know about? Create a web page that showcases your web portfolio, your video library, your paintings, and your published and unpublished works. This is your website and it’s where you can shine.

ESTABLISH AUTHORITY

More and more people these days establish themselves as authority figures by creating their own space on the web. One of the easiest ways to do that is with a blog. Write about your passions, your dreams, or your professional experience, and use that as a way to establish authority.

MAINTAIN A PROFESSIONAL [EMAIL] PRESENCE

I don’t know about you, but it looks better to have a <firstname><lastname>.pw email than a gmail.com or a yahoo.com. If nothing else, get a personal domain so that you have a professional email address. It’s that easy.

Do you need more convincing? Of course not, you already know that this deal is too good to pass up! So hurry, because offer expires in two days!

    Its like you learn my mind! You appear to understand so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some percent to force the message house a bit, but other than that, this is wonderful blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
