I woke up this morning with a migraine headache and could hardly get out of bed. After going downstairs and having breakfast I took 2 Advil I went back to bed. When I was sitting in bed I started to play around with my Ipad, and I started listening to some podcasts. I listened to 15 minute craft website tips and she recommended getting the domain name for your website. So I went to godaddy.com and tried to register craftsbyknight.com and it was taken. I called the number provided and the guy that owns the site answered and he bought it for his wife whose father is starting a business by the name of, you guessed it “crafts by knight” I gave him my contact info and he said he would ask his wife about selling me the page. I am kicking myself right now. I should done this first before choosing my name, but now I don’t know what to do.
I figure I have a few options, the first one is to wait and see if he is willing to sell me the page. I am going to do this for one week. My second option if I can’t buy the domain name from him is to change my name. I was thinking of the name “Jewelry by Knight” but this would be a huge hassle, I would have to create a new fb page, gmail account, pinterest account, and get a new etsy store.
I could register “jewelry by knight” before someone else gets it, but I don’t know what to do. Does anyone have any advice for me? I don’t know what to do.
UPDATE: craftsbyknight.net was available, so I am not going to change my name, I have craftsbyknight.net and blog.craftsbyknight.net as well as an email address, which I will set up later. It will all be up by Sunday. I can’t wait. the .net will forward people to my etsy store and blog.net will forward people to my wordpress blog.
