Picking the right domain name for your business website is one dilemma to solve, deciding from whom to purchase it – is a completely different one. Here is one of the possible solutions and its motivations.
Have you thought about the option of buying a domain name as a part of your hosting account package? Might sound as a not serious, or low-expectations solution in the beginning, but better take it neutrally before to find it recommendable after reading the following:
- The hosting provider offering domain reselling is the one watching the market trends and therefore reliable enough to increase the range and quality of provided services.
Domain reselling alone gets stimulated by domain registrars as a reselling their product business to attract indirectly new registrants. Talking about domain providing added to the range of hosting providing services – it gets really logical as a part of nowadays tendency for service unification.
- You are using one client account (area) to pay for your hosting and your domain together.
Moreover things are getting easier in terms of support as the hosting provider is managing your domain too. Do not be afraid in that sense as a customer that the more services - under one cap the worse quality you will get for each individual one. Domain reselling as a business is quite easier to run than hosting reselling, not to talk that they both require similar professional skills, knowledge and experience. With domain reselling the only thing to be administered are the name servers – usually only once after the domain purchase; and the only thing to do is to watch them being updated on time;
- Your domain deal might prove to be cheaper being a part of a hosting account package.
Not to talk about the chance to get a domain registered free – as there are tendencies nowadays – when the domain reseller, being initially a hosting reseller can make such marketing moves as free domain provision for the premium hosting plans (premium customers). Being a domain reseller, your hosting reseller have a full control over the resold domains under his own account. This includes setting his own custom prices.
- Do not underestimate the quality of the domain names offered as a part of hosting account deals.
Having full control over the resold under their own account domains includes the resellers’ right for branding as well. Willing to prove themselves as featured resellers they usually pick a range of the so called TLDs (Top Level Domains) as .COM, .NET, .ORG, .INFO, .BIZ. Domain names with such TLDs as an extension are having a floating – comparatively high price, because of the high demand. When hosting resellers start running also domain reselling they are given by the domain registrars a considerable discount to make as good profit as stand-alone domain resellers. So you have a bigger chance to get a quality domain name with a TLD extension cheaper - buying it from your domain reselling hosting provider rather then from a stand-alone domain reseller or a domain registrar. Why? – because the main business of the hosting provider is to sell or resell hosting and he will probably use the domain reselling as a catch to attract more customers by increasing the range of provided services and decreasing the price of each individual one of them.
Hope those few advices have ranked to the level to update even a little your consumer must-know basis when it comes to registering your new website domain name.
