What’s a cheap domain name? Back in 2006 there was a domain name that was bought by a company for $20 million, to keep it out of the hands of competitors – turned out that the domain name was sold a couple of years later for under $100,000! Then again, there are cheap domain names that were bought for just under $50, and sold later for over $10,000.
So, when you look to buy a domain name, you should make it a point not to overshoot your initial budget too much, even if you can afford to. Let’s talk a bit more about why this is so.
#1. There are many who buy domain names in bulk, as many as possible and later explore if any of the names got this way can be made into golden nuggets, offering much greater value than what they were bought for, either by reselling them for a higher price or by creating lucrative websites based on them.
#2. Then there are those seeking to develop websites without spending much on the expenses. So for them, to buy a domain name that is both cheap and close enough to what they were looking for is as good a deal as it gets.
What has happened over the last few years is that while the web has really exploded and there are hundreds of millions of websites out there, it has become extremely difficult to get a domain name exactly as you would ideally want it. As the oft repeated complaint goes, all the good domain names are already taken.
But does that mean that you should overspend while looking to purchase domain name? Clearly not, because it has been an observation of many SEO professionals that it is no longer critical to have a domain name with a ranking keyword (or a variation of the keyword) in it for a website to do well on Google’s SERPs. Websites rank high on their search results for a variety of reasons – having a great domain name isn’t one of them.
Indeed, there are several websites out there with cheap domain names that rank really well on Google’s SERPs. Yes, it is true that in the early days of the internet, domain names were very important and a good domain name helped to get more people to visit your site. But this is no longer the case, as internet users don’t really attach that much importance to a domain name anymore, as much as they do to the quality of the content.
That’s another reason why you should look to buy a domain name that is cheap. Also, you don’t always have to get .com extensions and feel upset when you don’t get them. There are so many other popular extensions such as .biz, .net, .co, .org and so on which are more easily available and just as effective.
Also, when you use these extensions, you would have to misspell the domain name or use hyphenations. You can use any domain name that you would like to. There is no evidence to suggest that the search engines favor .com extensions over the other extensions we talked about. So you lose nothing when you purchase domain name with .biz, .co, .org or .net extension.
