I’ve bought, owned and use some fun domain names. I’m a pretty big advocate of owning more than one domain name and for good reason…Domain names are cheap!!! You can generally purchase a .com domain name for anywhere between $9 – $15 (and often you can find promotions for ‘non-.coms’.) That’s a small investment for a potentially great return. Below you’ll find some suggestions on when and why you might want to think about buying a new domain:
Do you know what TLD is? Don’t be too embarrassed. It stands for ‘Top Level Domain’ and to put it simply it’s what comes after the “.” in your domain name. It could be a .com, or a .net…and even and .us. If you’d like to be a nerd then you can find out more on Wikipedia. You can also get a brief history of gTLD’s (or Generic TLD’s) that were first introduced in the 80’s on the ICANN website. These included the ever popular .com, .net, .org, .edu, .gov, .int and .mil.
