Maybe I Should Have Kept That Domain

Before I finally settled on alwaysbcmom.com as my domain, I registered a couple other ones. I've been using one of them, justgottasharethis.info, but I never did anything with the other one. Just last week it expired, and I let it. I don't feel too bad about it, since I think I only paid $2.99.

I was just reading this web hosting blog and read that someone registered pizza.com and then sold it this past April for $2.6 million. I doubt that I would ever get that kind of money, because I'm probably the only one who would ever want the domain I registered, and I didn't even want it after I got it. What they're really saying on this blog, though, is that if you have a domain name that you want to register, whether for your blog or for your business, you need to think really hard about registering it now, before someone else does. They may be willing to sell it to you, for a price, or it may be the domain name they need for their business, and you may be out of luck.

Besides information about domain names and how much you should pay for one, this Web Hosting Geeks blog has information about E-Commerce, generating traffic with search engines, and designing your site for SEO. The blog is associated with the Web Hosting Geeks review site, which has some good reviews of web hosting providers. If you're thinking about getting a new web host, this looks like a good site to visit first. You can find out which web hosts are the cheapest, which ones have the best customers service, and how much space and bandwidth you'll get with each, as well as what their customers think of them.

Oh, and if you haven't registered that perfect domain name - do it now.
