Custom Domain Names

Spilled Milkshake Designs will purchase and set up custom domain names for your Blogger or WordPress site. The price is for domain registration of one year. Renews yearly for approximately $15.

Custom Domain Names:

  • Invite quality links
  • Increase Google and Bing page rank
  • Increase reader trust
  • Boost credibility (to Google and to readers)
  • Boost your site’s authority status

Having a custom domain name is so simple, I can’t stress enough how important it is. If you want to be taken seriously as a blogger or business, you’ll need your own domain name. This domain name does not have to be set for a self-hosted WordPress account…you can purchase your domain name and point it to your Blogger or WordPress.com blog instantly making you appear more professional.

A great domain name is at the core of every online business, blog, website, and ecommerce destination. Your domain name is like the title of your book, describing to your visitors what they will find inside. Choosing the right domain is vital. It can tell people anything from what your mission is to where you come from. We offer over 7 different domain extensions, making it possible to get your message across through your domain no matter what you are saying.

Anytime you purchase custom domain names, you are purchasing from a Domain Name Registrar. Do NOT sign up for add-ons, such as hosting (even if free), email accounts, or any other site upgrades. The only potential upgrade you should possibly agree to isprivate registration. If you have privacy concerns, you may purchase private registration (We offer this at $10/year). Otherwise, do NOT purchase anything other than the domain name. Whether or not you purchase associated .net, .org, .info, etc. is totally up to you. I am generally satisfied with just the .com.

What is Private Registration?

All domain owners are required by ICANN, the governing authority on domain names, to publish contact information in the public WHOIS directory. With Private Domain Registration, ID Protect’s information is published in place of yours, so your address, phone number and more are hidden from prying eyes.
WHOIS is the public directory of contact information of people and organizations who have registered a specific domain name. ICANN, the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers, requires accredited registrars to publish all domain registrants’ contact information, as well as other details, in the WHOIS database, which is available to the public 24/7.
