Domain Names are so Expensive, Why Do I Even Need Them?

Last Update: February 15, 2016

Getting your own domain name is almost a must if you want to do business online, and if you have been doing online marketing for a while now, you will already know this.

Getting Your Domain

Too many of you are afraid to purchase a $13 domain but I really don't get it. It's your business and it is what will get you paid.

You have to invest money to make money right? This is probably the cheapest business to get started and thanks to WA, we all can benefit from it. So what about the domain name?

Free VS Paid

Don't get me wrong, the free Siterubix are a great way to get started and is already worth the money. As an online marketer however, you want to worry about other things.

  • Branding yourself
  • Flexibility
  • Customization
  • Selling the domain

This all can be done with the free Siterubix sites, but you want to invest into something you actually own.

Goodbye Godaddy!

I used to get my domains with Godaddy for $1, but I ended up paying for it the following year because their renewal fees are insane!

WA has now added domains (which I absolutely love) and you really don't need to go anywhere else.

So on top of all the training, support, and website hosting, you can now get domains right here on the WA site.

Why WA Domains Rock

I know it can sound a bit pricey in the beginning, but you are actually saving in the long run.

Along with the savings, you also get site security and personal email. If you were to get these separately with another domain provider, you will pay a lot more than $13.

Site security is a big deal and I really hated paying for them when I didn't feel confident with Godaddy's service.

Now, I have all my sites hosted here and I know there is a solid team working in the background that will keep everything running smoothly.

The moral of the story is...Get your own domain! lol

I just don't get this $127 for the second year thing. I have about a dozen domains with GoDaddy and have had them for years. All of them are $10 to $15 a year. Remember .org or .info domains are just as good and they aren't even that expensive.

These 99 cent domains are good for a year but you are in this for the long run I went to renew one of mine and they wanted 127 dollars for the next year Be sure you renew it before 30 days of expiration or just go with namecheap.com and it is the same each year

$127? I suggest the discounted domains, so that you can get started and build your brand. Being a member of WA, you will start to make money before that domain name is ready to be renewed. Once that time comes around, your site will be a force on the internet and that $10 or whatever it costs to renew won't mean anything. This is just a great way to get people started with owning their own domain name, for a very, very affordable price. Thanks for sharing Walt!

I have never heard of this before. I have just renewed a couple of domains that I got for 99 cents and it only cost me around $12 for the entire year. Where did you get this domain from?

I had (still have, actually) a domain name with Blue Host and they also wanted over a hundred dollars for the second year. I will have to check if it is just the domain name I am paying so much for ?

Owning your own domain is owning your own little piece of internet real estate.

Thanks Russ, just thought I'd let our fellow members know about the savings that is offered, that most won't even know about.
