Video unrelated
I often buy domains and I could say that I am little bit addicted in that manner. I have done some efforts to cure such “addiction” but I still have a plenty of domain names and when it comes to paying for them I need to choose best company where to do that.

There are a lot of domain name sellers on the Internet but when I buy domain name which is always very important to me, I want to buy it at most secure place and at the same time I want to spend as less money as it is possible.

I found that and are probably most popular services for buying domains. is large company and they often offer cheap domain names, cheaper than other domain registers. But everything has it’s price. I found that Godaddy’s design is too much “spammy” for my taste. Buying domain there can be really torture, especially for beginners. Godaddy tries to make you buy more and more. While you’re going through the process of domain name registration, they offer you to buy their hosting, another cool domain and dozen of similar features. Whole process is complicated and you have to give your maximal attention unless you want to pay for something that you didn’t want to buy. I got frustrated with this on Godaddy several times and I decided not to use them anymore. I use them only to buy .info domain names because first year of .info domain name registration costs about one or two dollars which is far away cheaper compared to others.

More on Yahoo Domains

Businesses are fooling themselves if they think they can continue to conduct business without a website. This is because in today’s age, having a website makes many think a company is ‘official.’ But a website by itself doesn’t mean anything without a decent domain name. Granted, a company can try to cut costs by using a free domain name or a third level domain name offered by free web hosting companies, but visitors won’t view their site as being genuine.

Long, complicated domain names are associated with affiliate marketing or even scammers, so businesses need to try and stay away from them as much as possible. The best solution involves getting a normal domain name from a reputable domain name company. One of the best domain name companies around is Yahoo Domain Names.

Yahoo Domain Names is a great alternative for individuals who do not know much about domain names or website hosting. In fact, with Yahoo Domain Names, a person can get a domain name free should they decide to buy one of their hosting packages. The cheapest hosting package available is $11.95 a month plus a startup fee of $25. With this along with any other Yahoo Domain Name hosting package, webmasters get an online website builder. Basically, all they have to do is enter in their information and the site is created for them instantly.

Another reason one should choose Yahoo Domain Names is because of their domain name locking system. This helps prevent hijackers from stealing the domain name. With Yahoo Domain Names, the process of domain name locking is as simple as clicking a button. Webmasters can check to make sure their domain name has been locked by looking up their Whois information. If it says Status: Registrar-Lock, (which it will since Yahoo Domain Names was used), then they can feel assured that their domain name is safe from unauthorized individuals.
