One of my friends bought some domain names. He said that owning a domain was very important. One of his domain names is hcn.name and he made a Chinese weblog on blog.hcn.name. However, I couldn't understand how important a proper domain name is and why he was so interested in it. I think domain names are just used to make up URLs. Many people don't want to try to remember your domain name. I think they like bookmarks or Google better. For me, if I want to find something, Google is enough. If I find a good website, I will add it to my bookmarks. So I seldom remember a website's domain name.
Some people advised me to buy a domain name for this blog. But I don't know what and how much a domain name can give me. I mean, owning a domain name, not web space. Traffic, pagerank, or Adsense don't seem to have to do with a domain name. Therefore, I still use this sub domain of blogspot.com.
Is it really important that owning a domain name? Or if you think it would be better to buy a domain name for this blog, what domains names are the best? Thank you for leaving your comments.
