So you’re a small business owner. You have your idea. You know what your business is about. Next step is to buy a domain that will represent your business on the web. This is probably by far one of the most challenging options you have. With billions of domains already purchased; is there a chance that the one you want is available? There are many options to buy a domain such as through Host Gator, GoDaddy, or Rapid Domain as just to list a few registrars where you can purchase your online real estate. Most of the time domains can run you an average of $10 per year depending on options or how many years you choose to buy them for.
Domains come in many varieties such as a .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info and many more. Which one do you buy? More than one domain? Different variations of your business name? According to Hubspot it is recommended to buy more than one domain extensions if you are looking to completely brand your business. However if you are thinking of using the extra extensions for additional traffic then it will not help you. Here is a link to Hubspot’s recent blog post on How to Choose the right website domain(s). This post goes in-depth on what to consider when you are ready to make this move for your business.
