You have two main options when buying a domain name: hand registering one for $10 on Go Daddy (or a similar site) or purchasing a domain name from a domain marketplace like Media Plow. Yes, you will be spending more for a domain, but these aftermarket sites help you as a business owner. We know the business of domain names. We know what will appeal to both you and your customers. Purchasing a domain from an aftermarket is a boon. Here are some of the other benefits.
The Pinnacle of Domain Extensions: The Dot Com
When folks tell you that they own a website, they don’t usually include the extension. It’s understood that the extension is “.com.” Anything less than a .com isn’t worth it and everything for sale on a domain marketplace is a .com. You get quality over quantity and that quality leads to more business.
Good .coms Grant You Instant Credibility
Media Plow sells premium names and there’s a reason these names are dubbed premium. Premium domains are very catchy and tell consumers what the site does. Don’t believe us? Cabinets.com did more cabinet business last year than their rival, the giant Home Depot, all because cabinets is their domain name. When you e-mail someone with your domain name attached, potential customers read your domain in each message, and a good .com will get you the traction you need to make a name for yourself.
You’ll find a large number of creative business domains on our site. These domains get more clicks, capture more new customers, and stick your domain name in consumers’ heads.
Don’t Waste Your Time
I’ve spent countless hours on Go Daddy, plugging in names only to find out that the name’s already taken. You’ll spend less time browsing a Media Plow and you’re guaranteed a good name that fits your business. I don’t know how many times I’ve given up on a name thread with Go Daddy, only to settle for a subpar name.
Don’t Settle for Less than the Best
More often than not when you search Go Daddy for a name, you’ll end up with your third, fourth, or thirty-ninth choice, and chances are that your thirty-ninth choice wasn’t nearly as good as your first. Media Plow can give you a homerun on the first try. You’ll find a name you want and one that you’ll be proud to own.
Ultimately, the choice is yours. But if you’re serious about your business and domain, you owe it to yourself to check out what Media Plow has to offer.
