Save Up to 42% on Domain Name Transfers at Namecheap!
NEW! Namecheap: Save up to 42% during the Domain Name Transfer Sale at Namecheap! Do you run your own family history website or blog? Do you own your own domain name? If so, you may be paying TOO MUCH for your domain name.
Want to know MY domain name strategy?
I’ve been running my own genealogy sites since the mid-1990s. I also run several businesses where I need domain names using .com and other TLDs (Top Level Domains) such as .net or even .club! One lesson I learned the hard way: NEVER have your website hosting service handle your domain name registration. Why?
- Often the initial price for the first year of the domain name is reasonable; however, annual renewals become expensive, as much as $100 per year! Many of my web admin clients have had me transfer their domains to Namecheap in order to lower their annual costs for domain name registration.
- And if your website hosting service gets hacked (as happened to me), you not only lose access to your hosting account, but your domain name as well. This happened to me in 2010 and it cost me $300 in ICANN fees to file an affidavit and prove that I was the owner of the domain.
I now use Namecheap for all my domain name registrations and transfers. And right now you can save up to 42% on domain transfers for the following TLDs:
You can transfer up to a total of 100 domains AND you’ll get a year’s registration when you transfer, plus carry your existing time left over as well*.
