Use a custom domain name



Please, for the love of all things web-related, if you decide to do anything online, get yourself a domain name. Don’t rely on the 3rd party domain provided by services like Blogger, Substack, Tumblr, whatever. Yes, it’s an extra cost but owning your URLs is important. If Substack dies tomorrow, all your URLs are gone. And all the links scattered across the web that were pointing to them are now broken. So, again, please, get yourself a domain name when you create content for the web. And don’t forget that “Cool URIs don’t change“.

Manuel Moreale spiega perchè usare un proprio dominio online; sono pienamente d’accordo con il suo pensiero. Io sto cercando di eliminare i vari social per postare solo qui; ora anche su Tumblr si possono acquistare i domini visto che è controllata da Automattic l’azienda che possiede wordpress.
