I can’t stop buying domain names!
Right now I own 30. THIRTY! Some I’m using, of course, others are ideas. Site ideas, blog ideas, book ideas.
I may not have time to act on these ideas right now, but buying the domain name is a first step. I give myself a year. One year to do something with a domain name I purchase. If I don’t make any progress towards using it within that year, I let it go.
This morning I purchased yet another one. I had an idea while running and snatched the domain on Register.com.
Register.com is my domain registrar of choice. I’ve been using them for over 10 years. They have great customer service and an easy to use interface. My only complaint: price.
Before I checkout I do a quick google search for a promo or coupon code (side note: I do this for ever online purchase) and I always find one that saves me a few bucks.
This morning I found the ultimate one: REG5
Just plop REG5 in the promo field and get any domain for $5!
It only works for a year, but that’s all you need to secure a name. When and if you actually do anything with it, you can always negotiate longer terms with Register.com. I’ve done it for all my permanent sites like, RonisWeigh.com, GreenLiteBites.com, BlogToLose.com and SkinnyMinnyMedia.com. All of which I now own for 10 years.
So if you are in the market for a new domain name check out register.com and use the promo code REG5 for a cheap way to grab that domain name you’ve had floating in your head.
