Why Do You Need to Buy Multiple Domains? - Multiple Domains
(Page 3 of 4 )
On average, owning a domain name costs around $10 to $25 a year (USD). This figure, of course, varies depending on where you’re buying your domain and what type of package you’ve purchased. The amount you’ll pay will also change depending upon your payment method (monthly or annually, for example).
Owning a domain costs money. Owning multiple domains, even when they’re purchased through the same company as part of a package deal, costs more. It’s a good idea to own one or two domains if you feel that you have a Web address which could have some very, very common misspellings.
It’s not a good idea, however, to buy up so many domains that you’ve got to get a second job just to support your Internet bills. Be discerning, and be sensible. In fact, run a test.
Open Notepad or a similar program. Type out the main domain name you’ve chosen fifty times in a row. Of these, find out which mistakes appear the most often. If you have friends or relatives willing to take the test, have then do so. This should give you an idea of which typos seem to pop up with the most frequency.
For example, you’ve decided to create a site called RespectDaTech.com, a domain that will be filled with interesting pages concerning the world of computer technology. You might find that it’s very easy to type out respectdtech.com when you’re trying to enter your main URL. In order to keep your traffic and avoid losing visitors, you choose to buy the domain respectdtech.com as well.
Now…what are you supposed to do with this extra domain you suddenly own?
