Why should you own a Domain Name?

There are several advantages to owning your own Domain:

  • It's far more professional than a free ISP page. This gives visitors to your site more confidence is using your services.
  • It allows you to have your own email address at the site name, rather than your ISP - this is also more professional, and usually faster and more reliable.
  • Owning a domain gives you a permanent 'home' online - your web address need never change - your email need never change - This makes it far easier for people to stay in touch with you!
  • Changing your "address" and contact info can end up costing you more in the long run! If you print business cards, flyers, run advertisements, etc., and they all include your web site or email, all that has to be changed if you change your present information. Switch your Internet Provider (ISP) and your email and free web storage goes out the window. This never happens with a Domain, even if you switch hosts!
  • Domain Names and Professional Hosting are affordable! Where else can you "rent" this type of exposure for less than a dollar a day? (Based on average $20/mo Hosting and $22/yr domain ownership.)
  • Ease of doing business! With a Domain Name and web site (especially one that is easy to remember, guess, or recognize), your clients can have an easy way to always find you, no matter what time of day.
