Business Names and URLs

It’s never easy to come up with business name ideas. I recently blogged about it on my Business Coaching Blog and thought I should mention it here because every business needs a domain name or URL to match their business name.

Domain Name Buyers Beware!

I just got caught with a hidden upsell that I thought you’d want to know about – especially if you have a lot of domain names as most of us have…

It’s the FREE private domain registration ‘upsell’ for FREE…

So what’s the catch? When your domains are automatically renewed, they PRIVATE REGISTRATION COSTS are added to the domain registration DOUBLING the COSTS per domain.

Owch!

If you don’t need the anonymity because you are your website e.g. www.MarcDussault.com, then this can be a saving of THOUSANDS of dollars per year.

You’re welcome!

Onward and upward!
