First Publish your website & get a domain name, Then add apps & do more thins. Because if you upload your photos and adding apps, then sometimes Google will index your photos & text. After you get your domain, then all your pages & images web address will change. So it will badly impact on your website. I highly recommend you within 1 or 2 days publish it & get a domain name, Otherwise, when you want to upgrade & getting a domain, you may face some problems. It is not Wix problems, But the Google & other search engine works like that.

4. First Publish Your Photography Website, Then Do More Things

Once you make something on your web page, you should either save or publish your site. Otherwise, your work will get discard..!!

Publish means to make your site publicly accessible. No one will get your website at the beginning. Google always index slowly for newer sites.

  1. It takes at least 1 week to get appear Your website on Google
  2. If your website shared by many people & linked on many sites like news channels or any trusted website, then you must have something good information on your website. So Google gives more importance to your website pages.
  3. Remember, Google considers website age also as one of the factors to give a higher index to your site. So, publish your website first.

Google always index slowly to avoid spam or untrustful websites.

So Publish Your Website now, before it is too late or before your competitors take your position.

At the beginning you may make several mistakes, that doesn’t matter.

Click Publish button that is in the Top Right Corner that I showed with red arrows

Publish Your Website

Once you clicked on “Buy a New Domain” You will see a search bar.

There you just type, which name you want to give your website.

type your domain name
type your domain name

Most of the time, you may see the domain name is not available.

Because someone who already registered that domain name.

Domain name is your website home page URL or your website address. Example:- www.google.com, www.selenagomez.com, ducktoluck.com, websitebuilderly.com. No need to take .com only. there are many wonderful domain exstensions available other than .com. E.g www.gatesfoundation.org, www.harvard.edu, www.Google.uk,  www.Dekora.fashion, www.Bse.london, www.Toureiffel.paris, abc.xyz, www.yoursite.club,  www.brians.photography etc.

See below screenshot to see an example of an unavailable domain name

I wanted to give www.jackiesphotography.com for the photography website name.

domain name search for your photography website
unavailable domain name

But .com is not available. However jackiesphotography.tv or.org and so many extension were available. Now I can buy any one of these domain name other than .com, Because someone already registered that .com domain name.

So, I tried a different one. Instead of .com, I used .photography.

My typed dot photography top level domain name was available
the typed dot photography top level domain name was available

Yes. That domain name was available & I can register it.

If you want .com domain name only, then just try with different words or add something on it.

  Note: If you really really wanted .com name only, then here is a tool to find it. Go to Lean domain search.  Type the words you want to include in your domain. Then it will show you available .com domain name & don’t register there. comeback & register on Wix

For example

typed dot photography top level domain name was available

Wait… what if you don’t have phone case print, metal print, cloth print like services/products?

Don’t worry, Wix will do it automatically for you using third-party service Print on-demand services. …!!!

You can set your own prices. When your client order, the order will go to both you & print on demand. But your customer thinks you are giving that service & the third party company name never revealed.

(You can track everything. In case they don’t deliver, Wix will take immediate action. The quality is good enough to satisfy your customers. I already bought and tested all the samples. Wix made deals with the best services, So you no need to think more about the quality.)

For example, if they order a phone case, then automatically the Wix connected third party will create the phone case of your client’s photo ( Because you already uploaded on your website &  They get the photo from the order.) & they will deliver on behalf of your studio..! You no need to worry about anything.
