If you have a plan to one day grow your business beyond Etsy then purchasing your own domain is a smart decision. Even if you are not ready to create your own website, you can purchase a domain and have it forwarded to your Etsy shop. Having your domain forwarded to your Etsy shop means when people visit your domain they will be taken directly to your shop.
Where You Should Include Your Domain
You should include your domain on your business card, labels, tags, social media profile pages and other marketing materials. This will help your customers become familiar with your domain, so when you are ready to grow beyond Etsy you can point your domain to your website.

Don’t Forget To Register Your Domain As Private
If you do not have a business address that you would like to display publicly on the web, I recommend selecting the option for private registration. Private registration keeps your name, address, email and phone number private to everyone except for the company you register your domain with.
