What are the things that one might want to consider when requesting your own domain ?


Whatever the domain you want is, it's already gone. Once you find a domain your biggest risk is that someone else will buy the same domain with a different suffix and impersonate you, so if yours is zmau.com (don't bother checking, it's already gone) then someone might buy zmau.net or zmau.org etc, so when buying the domain you might want to consider buying as many suffix options as you think reasonable.

Beyond that it's pretty cheap and straight-forward, $10 to $20 a year on average. You can't buy it outright, you need to renew it every year, or every three if available.
