- You can have more than one such personal domain.
- You could use your own domain for purely a professional identity facet, preferring to keep anything personal off the internet/web. That's totally fine.
- Have an h-card on your home page with your contact info.
- Link to "other profiles" from your home page with rel=me.
- Use your domain as your identity with IndieAuth.
- Appreciate and practice IndieWeb principles
Content hosting possibilities
- You own your own domain but use Tumblr.com or WordPress.com or some other hosted content solution to publish content (like posts) on your site. You own your permalinks so you can change hosting and (with some work) keep your permalinks working.
- You use a full-service web site hosting service and have them maintain a WordPress or other CMS install and databases for you.
- You use a web hosting service and maintain your own WordPress or other CMS project install, backup your content (files and/or databases) etc.
- Just having a subdomain on a content hosting site, e.g. person1.blogger.com, person2.wordpress.com, etc. They still own your permalinks.
- Just having a profile page on a content hosting silo, e.g. twitter.com/person1 flickr.com/person2
- In both cases you're still subject to their policies on names and they could trivially give your name/identity away, e.g. as what happened with danah boyd and zephoria.tumblr.com (which she did get back), or the Tower Bridge on twitter.com/towerbridge
