Register that Domain Name

A quick bit of advice… If you ever run across a domain name that interests you (and is available), then snap it up. It’s dirt cheap to register a domain name (less than ten bucks a year) and it may not be there next time you think of it. This has actually happened to me on two different occasions… I’d think of a domain name that I wanted for one reason or another, check to see if it was available (it was), and then get distracted. Then, just a few days later, I’d go back only to find that it was GONE. Don’t make the same mistake.

  3. I have a domain name I’d like to register, but there are so many companies offering to register the name, and their prices are different. I don’t know who to use! Any advice on which company to go with?

  8. I’m a big fan of GoDaddy as well, but it’s worth noting that Yahoo! Small Business is offering a promotion right now for $2.99 domain (one per new customer). You can always transfer it away to GoDaddy or whomever. I bought mine today.

  9. If you go with Dreamhost, they give you a free registration. Otherwise, GoDaddy is who I use, you can use SAVETEN to get 10% off (which is like 80 cents)

  11. I agree with you on picking up any good ones, but make sure you actually want the domain name before you invest.

  12. I spent a lot of time trying to find a URL for my blog. Of the twenty plus ideas I tried, only one was used by a real business. Every other site had a squatter trying to sell the URL for $20K or more.

    Sarah, I don’t know about Yahoo!s recent promotion, but when I checked a couple months ago, the low-priced registration required a 12 month hosting agreement that was overpriced.

  14. Awesome site you have here but I was wanting to know
    if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about here?
    I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get responses from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Appreciate it!
