Before launching your blog or website, there are a number of things worth considering. In this weeks edition of Perfcast, David Peralty and I cover a broad spectrum of things you should consider such as:

Before Spending Money
Idea
Niche
Potential Posts
Research (competition, friends)
Interaction (commenting, collecting resources)
Can I do this for a long time?

Domains
brainstorming (instantdomainsearch)
what to choose (preference, .com, .net, .org, country codes, .info?)
where to buy them (namecheap, godaddy, from Host)
next step – nameservers!!! (just because they are registered, doesn’t mean they are “attached” to your project)

Hosted vs Self Managed
The hosted blogging solution versus the self hosted solution
Similarities
Differences

Control Panels (custom, cPanel, etc..)
