If I have a .com site, should my landing page be the same name but use a .net?

You can use the .com for a landing page. Unless you want to buy the .net too. Depends a lot on your long term objectives. Personally, I'd stay with the .com

The utiity of having several domain names, as Ms Debbie said, is to prevent anyone else to take it. For example if I buy only mybrand.com, someone else could come and buy the name mybrand.net or mybrand.org or else.
That's why it is often a good idea to buy many domain names, at this moment, a redirection towards the main domain name is simple.
Else, if you must choose one domain name, buy rather the .com one.

You may be right...won't know for sure until she gives us a definitive answer.

mmm, this is the first time I know that you should have both... I wonder what the right answer will be.

Whoever has the right answer should do a post on the subject and explain it to us all. Thank you.

It's really easy. A landing page can be any page including your home page.

However a landing page should be a page where you want your potential client, customer, visitor to land so that they can further converse with you.

It could be a simple contact page or a form where they fill out email, phone no, home address etc...

A squeeze page and landing are basically the same thing.

I think CozziKat has a domain name but needs a landing page for the examples we all provided?

It depends on your objective what the right answer is

thanks

Thank you you for a very simple yet comprehensive explanation. I think I need to go create a landing page and make it still on my site instead of showing current blog(s)... :)

I take it you want a landing page to gather leads, subscribers or new visitors?

A landing page can be a page, post, new .com, .net, .org domain. You can even create a siterubix site and solely use it as a landing page.

It depends how you defining landing page? Some people define it as the first page you land on your website. While that definition is not wrong historically a landing page has been described as a squeeze page or an opt in page that is its primary purpose is to collect information such as a name and email address for an auto responder to build a list. Can you define which one you mean please

No. The landing page should be your home page with your domain, not another domain. Use .com and nothing else that you have not bought.
The .com extension means that you are a company. The original extension application for the .net domains were for internet or network providers. The .org was originally for Non Profit organisations.
If you change the domain extension, you need to purchase a new domain with that extension, which becomes a totally new entity

My first thought is no but there should be a difference in the URL of your website and landing page for the purpose of your visitors being able to know the difference between the two.

no in any case it's not the same. Your dot com is a domain name, in the URL it will be followed by the page address, so a dot php !

Why Donna? It should be a page of your .com
The landing page is where people land when
they type in your domain name. Could be your
Home Page, or Welcome Page or your Blog Post.

Agree with what you said Ken.

Thank you Tarmizzy.

What would be the advantage of that? I'm curious to follow this convo, see what others have to say ...?

One of the advantages of owning a.net as well as a.com is it makes a.com more valuable in some people's eyes

I have assistingfuturestars.org .net .com and .info I wasn't going to let anyone else get my assisting future stars main hitters as some try to use your website to drive traffic to their sites

AHA! Now THAT is a good reason and plan of action, Debbie!

And as Debbie says that's another reason

I initially thought that we needed to scoop up related names [buying .com .net etc.] but didn't do it because of something Kyle said about not maintaining multiple sites, but it sort of makes sense that someone would do a copycat and skim off your good work!

Exactly. And you don't have to build the extra sites out, just own them so nobody else can.

it pays to get in on the discussions here!

How about this answer to a great question. You can, but you may not (and should not.) It is far to confusing and FB really ends up connecting them which gets way out of control Trust me on this one. I recommend going the business account or fan page...fan page being my favorite.

Yes, currently i have 2 fan pages & 1 email account. Ill stick with that. Thanks for replying.

Interesting! :)

This sounds like a situation that "sub-domains" would come in handy for (?) Maybe..I think..am I just way wrong? Oh well. Never mind.

Hmm... Not sure. :o)

I only mentioned the sub-domains because just before I'd read your question, DamianP (here at WA) had just blogged about them. Sounded as though it might help.

Than a Facebook page or group is the way to go. I started a page for my son's football team and it grew to over 600 members without hardly any effort. Facebook is a great tool

You can have as many accounts as you like just use separate email addresses

Barry

Thank You, Barry.

I agree !

David's right about Facebook. You can only have ONE official personal timeline, but you can make as many business pages as you want. You can also turn your personal profile into a business page if you don't want the personal page, but it changes a lot. Search the FB help files for this. And, yes, I know some people have lots of FB accounts, but, if they get caught, they will be deleted and you could have all accounts canceled and banned. You can have multiple Twitter accounts. Pinterest has personal and business accounts. Not sure about Google+.

Thank You!

I have 2 g+ Account Whit different mail but im only using 1

And Google+ follows you on the 1 that you use only?

I didn know that but It's Good to know

You can have multiple Facebook accounts also using different email addresses

Not worth the risk James!

James if you read their terms and conditions you can't on FB. You can on Google plus you can on Pinterest, don't know about Twitter and never use it

Yeah it's just a matter of signing up using different email addresses

Thanks, James. What about Google+ Should I just create a new account & start all over as a new person? Then go on to create the other new social accounts?

I know you can have as many accounts on twitter, fb, pinterest as you wish, but I would also like to know how to keep them all separate and in order. I suppose one way would be to sign up with the email from each diferent website, but I would like confirmation from an expert, too.

Okay Donna - you can have as many Twitter accounts as you have eMail accounts.

You can ONLY have ONE Facebook account - but with in that one account you can create many Fan pages - as they used to be called - are not reffered to - as just pages.

Twitter and Facebook are the only two social networks I deal with! :)

Yes, I think I understand about FB (Fan Pages), as I have that. Pinterest, I believe I have that covered! Google+ is my problem. Wherever I go, they follow me as me! How can I get them to not follow me as me! If I have other accounts which one would they pick. Sorry for the rambling but it does get a little confusing.

Never be sorry for anything -- Well within reason that is!

We will have to wait for a G+ expert to pass by.

As I say I only use and understand Twitter and Facebook! :)

:) Thank You!

I already deleted the 'Hello World'. 2 home pages still there.

To everyone who has joined me in trying to solve the issue of deleting my additional 2 Home Pages on my website: Late on Friday, I found out that my very dear friend had just died of cancer. I had to drop everything & get ready to go to the funeral on Saturday. I'm so sorry I just left you hanging! I'm back & starting to read all your helpful comments. Hopefully, we can get it worked out. Thanks so much to all of you!

Hi Donna, you should not have to delete your site. Is it your own domain, or siterubix? If it is your own domain, you definitely do not want to delete your site.

If you are comfortable with sending me a private message with the login details to your website, I will be glad to log in and see if I can fix your issue. Please explain to me in the pm exactly what you want to achieve.

~Jude

Hey Jude. Thanks for trying to help with my website issue. As per my above comment, I found out Friday evening that a close friend had passed. I had to hurry & go out of town for the funeral on Saturday, so I had no time to respond. Thanks again!

Sorry about your friend. I understand. Let me know if I can help. ~Jude

Thank You.

You have two problems: 1 with your menu and one with you designated home page.
Lets start with getting your home page - getting started to load as your home page.
Go to "Build My Website" and log in to your website. At the dashboard click on Customize. A menu will come up along the left side of your screen. Click on the bottom item "Static Page" In the popup menu choose the second option "static Page" click on the bottom button and you will be presented with a choice for your front page and a choice for your blog. Choose the page you want to be your home page and chose the page you want for your blog.

The menu problem is more of a problem to fix without seeing it. Go to appearance and menus. You need to delete both homes. I think you get rid of them by dragging them out of your menu but Iʻm not sure.

Bill, I did exactly as you directed! It worked! We did it! :) Thanks so much. As mentioned in the above comment, I had someone close to me pass away & that is why I have not responded for a couple of days.
