It is necessary for me to greet those great men here for their powerful contributions so far. I want this thread to be as helpful for other bloggers (including novice) just the way i want to gain more from professional bloggers. Many of us are good in what we do and we wish to make it known and available to the world by getting a domain where we could share our brand. Getting a domain isn't the problem of majority of us, but the maintenance and the ability to run it effectively without crashing subway. I see that many people can't have business deal with you if you don't run a standard blog/site, while majority believe that you can't provide good service if the quality of your blog is poor. Now i seek sincere opinion from you all. Is it good to get a domain without good knowledge of web design, maintenance and optimization just to meet up with people's demand? Is it advisable to run a free domain/sub domain to learn some basic things about web before getting a registered one? Or Will it be good to handover all the affairs of a registered domain to a professional in order to meet up with standard?
