One of the simplest ways to own digital real estate is by purchasing a URL and starting a blog. Owning a URL is similar to buying a plot of land, whereas creating a blog is like building a house on that land.
Mobile applications have become increasingly popular over the past 15 years with the creation of smartphones. Mobile apps take up digital real estate in iPhone and Android stores and on your phone's homepage.
You don't have to own a website to enjoy your slice of digital real estate. Social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok, allow you to own your piece of the internet by simply creating an account.
