As a YouTuber, it’s important to have something that you control. Your channel is subject to YouTube changes, so even if you build up a following, if YouTube changes its rules or algorithm, it could be disastrous if you are on the wrong side of it.
This is why I recommend all YouTubers set up their own website, if your channel disappears, your viewers and fans can still find you easily.
For this, I use Bluehost, an affordable and reliable hosting company that makes it possible to create your own website at an extremely low cost. Get a free domain for your first year, and pay as little as $2.95/month with this link.
