Domain Names and Hosting:

This is the most important step, the 1st step toward launching your niche, is to sign up for a web hosting package and having your own domain name. Of cause there are many free hosting and domain provider out there to name a few e.g.: Wordpress.com or blogger.com which seems to be the most popular choice. But do have some restriction pending on what you want or expect e.g.: video streaming.

So in this path I recommended to have your own domain name (name that is relating to your niche / products) e.g.: www.myniche.com, funny enough people perception plays a very strong role, what I mean is if your niche is on present like: www.myniche.com compare to myniche.blogspot.com or myniche.Wordpress.com, people tend to trust more to buy your products on your domain name. And that is just our human perception.

But hey having your own domain name and wed hosting package is inexpensive now a day, the cost of hosting per month is anything between $2 - $5 will provided some excellent hosting size and bandwidth; Plus your domain registration for somewhere between $6 - $12 per year. There are many Domain registrar and Web Hosting providers out there. For me these seem to be best for values: HOSTGATOR.com and GODADDY.com both have well prices and offers excellent support.

Now choosing your domain name, that can be very time consuming as some of the name you think may already been taken / registered. So make sure you take your time to have a domain that fit for your niche or products, for example if you are promoting diets products then your domain will be something like topdietpills.com. You may try many different words before you can find a free vacant domain name for your products. But make sure it’s relate to your niche also another point when selecting your domain try to incorporate keywords in your domains when possible.
