Part 1: The Domain

The first thing you will need to do is get a domain or a URL _(ex: [https://www.medium.com/)_](https://www.medium.com/)) It is the link that you will send to people or the address you will put on your resume.

There are a few places to get a free domain, but the easiest and most reliable is Freenom.

>>Before searching for a domain,** you will need to create a login**. Otherwise they will show as unavailable and you will need to create a login anyway in order to register it. Keep this in mind when you return to the site for more domains, always login in first.

Step 1: Head to Freenom and click on Sign In. Create a login or just use Gmail or Facebook socials to login.
