Really cheap domain names for freelancers
Here’s great news- cheap domain names for freelancers. If you’re looking for a new domain name (or a couple dozen,) now’s the time to buy. Namecheap.com has some crazy deals on top-level domains (TLD) starting at only $0.88 (eighty-eight cents) per year. Of course, you can’t get a .COM, .NET or .ORG for that price. Still, you can get some awesome TLDs for next to nothing.
If you are a freelance writer or entrepreneur who wants to get your name out there, a personalized domain name is a great place to start. A TLD with your name is a fantastic way to start building your own personal brand. I was fortunate enough to get the .COM for my name a long time ago. However, if I were to relinquish it now, I am sure getting it back would be a chore.
Even if you can’t get the .COM version for your name, though, there are still some really cool choices available to you that are really cheap. For instance, I just signed up for JeffGrundy.xyz and a few others – all for $0.88 each. Wow, talk about cheap.
I really like Namecheap because they accept PayPal, so that’s one less site you have to worry about when it comes to sharing your credit card or other personal financial information. Namecheap is also one of the bigger players so you don’t have to worry about them skipping town or closing up on you anytime soon, (I had a major problem with RegsiterFly some years ago.)
So, what types of domain names can you get for $0.88? Here’s a quick list:
Looks like 14 different TLDs to me. With that many options, I am sure you can find yourself a cool domain using your name. If you pair that with a $5 self-hosted WordPress site from Digital Ocean (the best hosting service ever,) you’ll be all set with a powerful server and your own cool domain name. Create your portfolio and blog, and then show off your talent to the world.
