Getting Started | Domain NamesCongratulations on taking action towards creating a better future for yourself. If you’ve found this page you more than likely found a great opportunity and are now working towards your goals in succeeding with your new business. So, where do you go from here? Let’s get into it. Your first step would be to access your company’s back office and update your profile, address, and Information. Get familiar with the company’s compensation plan and adjust your financial information to ensure that you can receive payment.

- Try to include your company’s name within your domain name for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) reasons. An example would be YourCompanyNameLeaders.com
- You have a couple options as to what to do with your new domain name. You can forward your domain to your company affiliate link, or get a hosting account and install wordpress to your domain (Discussed in later tutorials). Ultimately, I recommend installing wordpress to your domain to help brand yourself as someone your prospects can get to Know, Like and Trust. If you’re using a company replicated site, people won’t know if there is a real person on the other side and that often leads to reduced sales. But, if you temporarily want to send prospects to your new domain name, forwarding it is a great solution for now. In the next tutorial we will change your nameservers and install your domain to your host. So, forwarding your domain is optional and you can skip to the next step if you decide to do so.
- If you decide to forward your domain, ONLY forward it. Do not “Mask” your domain in addition to forwarding as your company replicated site will often disable “cookies”.
