Sharing a resume or portfolio.
If you have a resume or portfolio you’d like to circulate but don’t have a website, a personal domain is the answer. Because you can send a personal domain to nearly any place online, it’s a perfect solution if you have documents stored in the cloud. Link them to your personal domain to make them easier to find and download.

Once you see how easy that is, use it to create a personal website using a website-building platform like WordPress.
