• I have had my own blog domain for well over 2 years now and I’m so glad I made the purchase. For 3 years I pay £15 with GoDaddy which I think is pretty good and it auto renews next year for another 3 years unless I change my mind. It has it’s benefits which I will highlight down below and also being hosted on WordPress also has it’s benefits.

    WHY SHOULD I SWITCH TO WORDPRESS?
    – Much faster
    – More customisable 
    – Lots of great plugins and features 
    – Recognised by Google
    – Buy pre-made templates
    – A lot more secure with the right plugins

    WHY SHOULD I BUY MY OWN DOMAIN? 
    – Looks good
    – Easier for others to find you
    – Can gain what people see when they search for you
    – Recognised as a legit website
    – Google knows where to place you in their search listings (being more on the first few pages and not miles back) For example: if you search for my blog via ‘shanylou’ I am literally the first listing which is awesome! 


    What do you think is good about hosting on WordPress and having your own domain?
