3 Reasons Why You Should Own Your Website

3 Reasons Why You Should Own Your Website

I know, I know…it’s just easier to set up your website on one of those “free” sites, right?

3 Reasons You Should Own Your Own Website
Own or Go Home

I mean, you simply set up an account with an e-mail address, password, set up your profile and you have yourself a website!

Or, maybe you’ve signed up with a company where you’ll pay a monthly fee and as a “freebie”, they’ll throw in a domain name.

Very cool.

Maybe….not so cool….

Why not?

Let’s say that you’re beginning to have some success with your business which is currently based on a free social media site or a free website.  All of a sudden the owner of the “free” site decides they would like to charge you a monthly fee.

What do you own at that point?

Do you own a domain name?

Do you own your site?

Nope. Nothing. Nada.

I’m all for establishing yourself on 3 or 4 social media sites, however, if you’re interested in building a rock solid business, it’s important to have a website where you own your domain name and you’re connected to a great hosting company.

  • Security
  • Stability
  • Branding

Oh, and let’s not forget….peace of mind.
