Domain Name Purchasing Made Easy


Buying a domain name isn’t necessarily a difficult thing to do, but there are a few hassles involved.  You’ve got to pick a name.  Then you have to find out if it’s available with your chosen top level domain (TLD) extension.  Then you need to decide if you want to buy privacy protection so that your name and address are hidden from the public and pesky salespeople.   And you need to shop around to find a domain name registrar that’s offering a good price, and the prices seem to vary from day to day, often dramatically.
