How much does a domain cost – And why? (video)

GoDaddy posted a new video on YouTube called “How Much Does a Domain Cost – And Why?”.

The video targets newbies in domain names.

BTW “at their mercy” is a key phrase in the video. You will know what I mean when you see it.

The description of the GoDaddy YouTube video:

If you’re looking to start an online venture, securing a domain name is ground zero. Whether or not you already have an established business, you can’t have a dominant presence on the internet without a domain. But how much does a domain name cost? What are your options? How do you get started?

The Journey is what everyday entrepreneurs, like you, need to follow in the pursuit of online success. In this video, Emma and Justin tell you everything you need to know about the cost of a domain name.

Let’s get started!

00:50 – Why is there a range of cost with domain names?

01:41 – WTF is up with .wtf?

03:22 – Some things to avoid

04:19 – Where do I get a domain name?

05:30 – How do I protect my domain name?

Instead of asking yourself, “how much does a domain name cost,” you should be asking, “how much would it cost my business not to have a domain that amplifies my brand?” Finding the perfect domain name for your company isn’t always easy, but the cost of sacrificing immediate recognition, traffic and sales could easily outweigh the price of a domain.
