How to Look for the Best Domain Name Registration Service

November 24, 2011 by  Filed under: Domain 

Internet marketing is probably the most dynamic job that anyone can wish for today. In Internet marketing, people get to promote people online, in an extremely different marketplace, where tastes come and go, and where you cannot predict who is accessing a website at the other end of the world. Internet marketing is highly volatile as well: what is today’s apparently big trend might be tomorrow’s major dud, and what is tomorrow’s major crowd drawer might be yesterday’s corny joke. Moreover, the Internet is a highly dynamic environment where people are linked closely to one another, so that once news about something leaks onto the Internet, it can spread like wildfire in mere minutes. This means that if you have something good to offer, the world can know about it instantly – but if you have a bad name building up for yourself online, people will shun you even before you step out onto the Internet arena.

In order to best market yourself, you will need a good website that is well designed and easy to navigate. You will also need to have a good domain name that will separate you from everyone else and make you unique. This domain name has to be registered with a domain name registration service in order for you to formally pay your fees, and for other potential domain name buyers to recognize that the domain name is already your own and can no longer be bought. As an Internet marketer, you may need to find the best domain name registration service around, as there are now many domain name registration services available.

First of all, do you need only a domain name, and to register it, or do you also need web hosting space? Some web hosts also offer domain name registration, and because these hosts need to make a living, they are tied up with reliable domain name registration services. You can take advantage of these packages in order to find a package that will allow you to save money in the end, and still have the domain name registration that you need. However, make sure that the same hosting service also has good amenities and features to go with its hosting plans: although some hosts will offer you a lot of web hosting space and domain name registration, you might have only one or two years to keep the domain name before it expires and you have to pay another fee.

Second, what domain name extension are you going to apply for? Are you going to get a dot com, dot net, dot org, dot biz, or a country extension? For some hosting and domain name registration services, the fees will be the same no matter what your domain name extension letters are. However, for some exclusive domain name registration services, a country extension can be more expensive. You will need to scout for the lowest prices for the domain name extension that you want in order to get the best bargain for you.

Take note, moreover, that some domain names can be more expensive than others because speculators believe that they will be bought by more affluent companies, thus bringing the domain name registration service more money. This brings us to the third qualification for a good domain name registration service: you will need to have a list of possible domain names with you, and then look for these domain names and their prices through the domain name registration service’s search engine. You will need to see which the best domain is for the best price in order to get a better bargain. Prices will differ from one registration service to the other, so you will have to look through as many services as possible until you find the best price.

Lastly, do not settle for the first domain name registration service that you find. There are virtually thousands of registration services online, and you can have your pick of all of them through your favorite search engine. All that you need to do is to be wise enough to know which one offers the best prices, and for your country or the domain name that you would like to have registered.

These are only a few tips that you can follow as you look for domain name registration services. For more information, do your own research and talk to your fellow Internet marketers about their own domain name registration experiences.
