Are you familiar with Ted Cruz? If not, he is a senator from Texas who is (at the time of this post) currently running for President of The United States.
I bring him up…not for a political debate (so no political comments please), but to illustrate why you should get your own domain name…in YOUR name.
Senator Cruz’ official site is at TedCruz.org. However, if you go to TedCruz.com you get a warning page, and if you proceed after that you get…
a page promoting President Obama.
I hope I don’t need to explain why that’s a huge mistake for the Senator. Not only does he miss out on people who type in the .com address to find him but it hurts his branding online. That’s a huge deal running for President I think you would agree.
No, you’re not running for President. But if you can own your name online it’s a definite advantage to have for a few reasons:
Trust me, this DOES happen. You have a fallout with someone in business or otherwise and they might decide to retaliate.
Everything is online these days and the more you can portray a positive reputation the better.
You should still get your own domain name. You can always put one single page up and link to your social profiles (Facebook, etc….)
Always try to get the .com version of your name if possible.
You should control your own domain name…the reasons are obvious and it’s cheap. Go grab it.

Who doesn't pal? If you have a rich Uncle, you're good to go. If not, then you better get real and realize that latest 'opportunity' on that Facebook group where you can make 300 bucks over and over for doing nothing is complete bullshit. ARE YOU READY TO GET REAL?? >> >> >> >>
