Buying a domain name cheaply with the help of GoDaddy to kick off the new year. Your new years resolution may involve starting your own business or just sharing your thoughts with the world. Having your own website is a must – even if you have no intention to use it straight away. If you don’t buy it, someone else could and even worse a competitor could buy it and use it ways you wouldn’t want.
I’ll show you how to buy a domain name cheaply and easily.
Choosing a Domain name
When you buy a domain name, the biggest challenge will be finding a short memorable domain name that conveys what you and your website is about.
Since all the good short names have disappeared (the ones people can remember) it’s quite common to choose a “longtail” domain name, so if you’re Paul and a builder in Birmingham, chances are the very catch domain name builder.com or builder.co.uk has already been taken. It’s time to think differently.
This is where you should consider other names, such as PaultheBuilder.com, wait, that’s gone too. Maybe PaultheBirminghamBuilder.com? It’s definitely longer but if someone is looking for YOU or looking for a builder in Birmingham, you’ve ticked the right boxes.
Choosing between .co.uk or .com
This is a no brainer. If you can, buy both. No two ways about. Buy both. Short and sweet. Of course, if say you’re in Canada, then .ca will be your country level domain name, so you would buy both .com and .ca.
Where to buy a domain name cheaply
Once, you’ve thought of a name it’s time to buy the domain name. All you need is a credit card, debit card or PayPal account to purchase and cost is low.
The great thing is right now there are some good deals on domain names from GoDaddy.com.
The best deals are the .com domain name for $2.95 (£1.82) for up to 5 domain names and £2.69 for a .co.uk domain name for the first year – even better is it includes something called “Private Registration” which means that, if you like, you can hide the name and address of the domain name, it’s always a good idea to do this to prevent some junk emails.
