Beware of the extension
Before talking about hosting, let’s take stock of the domain to choose. As you may have noticed, any domain ends in .COM, .IT, .NET .ORG etc., so which extension to choose for the blog?
The answer is simple .IT if you want your blog to be read only by Italians .COM if you think you want to translate your blog into multiple languages. The .COM extension is the most used therefore it will sound more professional than .NET or .ORG.
The choice of domain

Avoid putting dates or things that become obsolete over time like Travel2022 because it is clear that the following year your domain will no longer look professional.
