How to Save Money on your Domain name

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-OhtB_XOq2iI/Ua_UwFGIlqI/AAAAAAAABhw/cYe44J838yE/s1600/12978329_s+(1).jpgI started my online journey with free blogging sites like BlogSpot to learn how to blog and write content. When I started making my own websites it wasn’t really good, it was more like simple website layouts and with no marketing strategy whatsoever.  It was free so I just tried to make the most out of it. BlogSpot’s design and simple user interface makes it really easy for newbies or beginners to make their own simple website but I wanted my own domain name and the ability to install WordPress themes so free blogging sites wasn’t the ideal thing to do at that time.
I found out that Yahoo Domains at that time when I was just starting out was offering $2 dollar domains with some limited web hosting and as a beginner at that time I thought that it was a fantastic deal. At first it was fine because I didn’t need that much disk space and unlimited bandwidth anyway since I was just starting out. After offering $2 for the domain and limited hosting for the first year which was an amazing for me, Yahoo Domains decided to increase their domain registration to $14 dollars a year which is a ridiculous increase coming from $2 dollars. Right there and then I knew I had to find a better deal.



I researched the web on the best domain and hosting deals and have found out that Godaddy Domain Registry is the largest domain registrar in the world and when I tried using their services it was very easy and user friendly. I also used some Godaddy coupons which helped me saved money on my domain registration.  In terms of web hosting I decided to go to Hostgator because of their quality web hosting and amazing customer service. What I also like about Hostgator is that they provide big discounts to first time customers like the penny web hosting where you get to pay only $0.01 for your first month of web hosting when you use the coupon code: 25fatwallet and the 25% discount when you use the coupon code: 25fatwallet when you purchase for a year on their web hosting services.  I did not use Godaddy web hosting for protection purposes, I did not want to be tied up to one company and I have read that if you do that, you are risking a lot when you encounter problems with your hosting provider.
I have learned that it is important to not always go the cheapest especially when you are building an internet business. I have learned that it is important to go for value and quality when choosing a domain and web hosting provider. When you chose value and quality in a domain and web hosting provider you are assured that you online business is in good hands.
