Are You Paying Too Much For Your Domain?
Copyright secured by Digiprove © 2012
Like any other business an online business does come with certain expenses and one of those is the constant renewal of your domain name. This may not be necessary if you use BlueHost or Green Geeks as your web host because they both give you a free domain for life when hosting with them. Unfortunately not everyone hosts with them, I know I didn’t at the beginning, and even if you do you only get one free domain. The question is are you paying too much for your domain? I think it’s a safe bet to say that a lot of you are. I know I was.
If you are paying more than is necessary this post will show you how to reduce that cost thereby increasing the profitability of your online business.
How Much Does A Domain Cost?
What surprises me is not that there is a way to minimize your domain cost but that it’s taken so long for me to share it with you. I’ve known about it for awhile but it wasn’t until I got notification that my theelusivepotofgold domain was about to expire and that it was going to cost me $59 to renew it for two years that it dawned on my to tell you aboutDynadot my domain registrar of choice.
Ever since finding out about them I’ve been slowly transferring my domains over to them one at a time. Truth be told they’re a lot more than a simple Domain Registra, but I’ll let Dr. Domain show you what they’re all about.

So, what you need to remember is that Dynadot is an ICANN accredited registrar, not a reseller. This is why they are able to offer some of the lowest prices on the internet, speaking of which, all prices listed here are in US Dollars and yes, Paypal is accepted.
Anyway, transferring my domain from my old registrar to Dynadot only cost me $9.50 and because it also included a year of domain renewal I saved myself $40 over two years. This means that I have another $40 up my sleeve and I’m going to use that to purchase some more nifty plugins from JVZoo. Which ones? Well I reckon you’re going to have to wait for that information in one of my future posts.
