Domain Name Advice for Novices

Submitted by sbd on

A friend, who is not that technical, asked me for a domain name provider recommendations. I thought it would be helpful to share the advice:

  • Price. You should never be paying more than $9.95 for a .com domain, regardless of provider.
  • Renewal fees. Be aware the rewnal fee. Do not get stuck with a large renewal fee although you can always transfer the domain to another provider for less than $10.
  • Do you own multiple domains? If so, it's easier to just manage them through one provider.
  • Do you need hosting immediately with this domain? If so, go ahead and get hosting and get the domain for free.
