I want to move my Domain or Not? Help Please!

by 1 comments
Hi warriors,

I bought a domain at Domain.com and want that name with my hostgator account. Does it matter for SEO or anything else if I move my domain name to hostgator or I will use my existing domain and update my nameservers only? Or is the only difference the anual fee I would have to pay for my domain name?

I don't have a clue! Help

    For SEO it almost certainly doesn't matter who hosts your "domain name". But who hosts your site does matter due to your 'neighborhood' ie who else shares your server in shared hosting (eg they may dirty the shared IP address).

    If you're happy with Domain.com then just keep the domain there and set the nameservers for HostGator.

    I generally prefer not move my domain to the website host. If I have problems with the host I cna always upload a backup copy of my site(s) to a new host and switch the nameservers.

    But if my domain name is held with the web host, they may prevent me fro moving it ... I'll be stuck.

    There is very little chance of problems with a good domain registrar.

    I hope thi shelps

    If you grew up and went to public school in North America, you know that the school system here is far from perfect. Kids have all different experiences, but one common thread is that everybody learns how to be an employee and not a manager. School isn’t just designed to teach you math, science and English, there are also lessons contained in the actual structure of school itself. When you hear the bell and it directs you to class, you’re learning to follow directions in a very Pavlovian fashion. You know that you can’t get caught in the hallways during class time, so you respond to the bell in order to avoid punishment. When you go into the classroom and sit in your spot in the row of desks and you know you’re not permitted to talk to other students and that the teacher has control of the class, you’re learning that your place in society is to quietly submit to authority.

    Just a quick question for you internet marketing gurus, or for those of you who have a bit of experience in marketing your own businesses. Which social media platform drives the most traffic to your website? Im obviously going to invest a bit of time and money in advertising my business through each of the main platforms, facebook, twitter, instagram etc. I was just wondering, more out of interest than anything (because as I said, I intend to utilize each platform to its max for my business) which of these social media platforms is responsible for the highest amount of visitors to your website?

    I was reflecting on some of the things I have been working on over the past few months since I have been doing IM full time and I thought it's been a massive learning curve but I am making some progress. I've done a few little things that have helped keep me focused now that I don't have the physical motivation of a boss and a workplace surrounding me to crack the whip so to speak when I get a little lost and unmotivated during my work day.

    Hey guys - I have a question that I've been thinking about a fair amount and wanted to discuss with all of you. SEO is one of the main areas of focus for internet marketing - there are a lot of people building websites and competing for search engine traffic. There is so much information out there about search engine optimization and you can virtually get lost for days trying to figure out what the best way is to promote your website or the product that you're selling through search engine rankings.
