GoDaddy Black Friday Sale where you can get 5 dollar domain names. If you have been thinkng about getting online, now is the time to take that next step and pick up your domain name.
With almost 100 domain names to my account at GoDaddy, you could say I am somewhat addicted to using this domain seller.
If you are in any way looking to get yourself online, or if you have a business and do not have a website yet, I am not sure what you have been waiting for. Perhaps this is just the sale for you to get yourself going.
Lets say you have a few domain names (websites) you would like to have. I would highly suggest you get one with your name if possible and then another one with a product specific ring to it. This way you can separate yourself from your business in case you decide to change niches, but your main site remains and continues to build.
I would also suggest trying to stick with the “.com” ending as these are recognized and remembered a lot easier.
When you go though their website for this sale, they will let you pick up to 5 domains, though they are limiting the number of people who take the offer (they are a business) just like stores that will run out of merchandise. So this is the perfect weekend to move forward with all those thoughts that have gone through your head in getting yourself online.
After you get your domains, you will want to be able to host them and run a system where you can stay in touch with readers and customers. I highly suggest using GVO (which is where I have most of my sites). If you look up at the top right of this page you will see a place to enter your contact information. Go ahead and sign up and see how I am able to stay in touch with you to help you out in your business growth. This is referred to as an autoresponder service and it comes included with their service.
GoDaddy offers domain names at great prices. Check them out now to start branding yourself and your business with new .CO domains today.
Well, I had to settle for “TheDavidGardner.com” when I bought this website and set up this blog over a year and a half ago. Having such a common name left me without the option of snagging my domain name to brand myself online. Instead of being able to choose “DavidGardner.com” or “DaveGardner.com” an addition of the word “The” allowed me to have something comparible, but not quite the big one.
There are other options available like .info, .net, .me and many more that I could have tried to grab for branding purposes and recently I was able to grab a few of the new “.CO” extensions as GoDaddy was having a 60% off sale. I grabbed both the DavidGardner.CO and DaveGardner.CO domains yesterday at a great deal. I also picked up about 10 more sites related to niches I am interested in .
If you have ever been on GoDaddy before, you might be able to relate. It is addicting to go through the site and try to find domain names that might be available. There was one I was looking to get in the .COM extension a while back and it was listed as a premium domain which was for sale at $84,000! I was shocked for sure….and yesterday I actually picked up the .CO of the same domain name! I can only hope it’s value grows to that of the original domain.
Regardless of the fact that GoDaddy may try to work on the idea that sex sells, they offer a phenomenal service at a great price. If you have ever wished to start your own blog or business, now is the time to grab up your name (or your kids names for that fact…I grabbed my three girls names a while back!) to help with branding purposes so you can stick out well in a sea of others.
As time goes on and businesses become more numerous as the economy continues to stumble, it is important you can keep up with technological advancements to keep up with your client base. Having a website is just scratching the surface in regards to this. So head over to GoDaddy now and see what names you can come up with. You might even come up with the next big domain that everyone will know in years to come.
