Furthermore, additional Service services and other offers to expand the website. In the end, these cost much more than a complete package, which has to be paid from the beginning. The biggest disadvantage of such free websites is that they are generally only subdomains. The link name is therefore usually structured according to the scheme "www.name-des-anbieters/name-ihrer-subdomain.de". Often the ending is not even .de, but other, less known and, above all, less serious-looking endings are used.

You can determine this part yourself and adapt it to the name your website should have. This way your website will be associated with the name faster and will be found faster by potential visitors. In addition, a domain is divided into further areas, often in a precisely defined order. This is the case as soon as you do not offer only one main page, but divide it into a number of sub-pages. These, hierarchically even lower parts of your domain are usually indicated with a / and are located behind the Top Level Domain ending. In the end these are Third Level Domainsthat you create yourself on your website. Here, too, each name, i.e. in the best case the name of each subpage, must be unique. In another case there would be overlaps and it would lead to a multitude of display errors. With your own domain, which is sensibly structured and hosts an error-free website, you can draw attention to yourself or your site. This makes the site especially fast and easy to use, both from Googleas well as by potential visitors. Through this serious, ad-free and well thought-out structure you can create a flawless internet presence with your own domain.
