I think it depends what you need these domains for. There’s a blacklist of common spammy domains online and all the cheap ones are definitely on there. This is because most of these tlds have been used mainly for spam.
So this means they will be banned faster if you use them as profile links, they will be ranked low by google and other search engines and may have a number of other problems as well.
So i’d think long and hard if you really want to use them and how you’re going to use them.
Ill be using .com and other higher ranked domains more often now, but these cheap domains are at least a good starting point for those on a tight budget and cant afford buying dot com or other higher ranked (more expensive domains).
I would assume…that for SEO…and building a money site…you will not do this…but to have a different domain to put on your Instagram account …bio url it should be fine…that correct me if I wrong…I thought they were good for instagram…(if anybody thinks otherwise…I might be wrong…
Yeah I can tell you from experience …I’ve had sites deindexed by google …that were .xyz…and the same type of sites on .com were untouched…by the the…big googlebot…
Yes its true, however I will never be a GoDaddy customer again.
Their prices always change. The domains are only $1 for the first domain with a new account. It does not work for existing accounts. So it would defeat the purpose of ordering more than one since the additional domains are full price $10-$15. On top of that, they charge extra for WhoIs Privacy which is another $10/year. All in all you will end up paying $20-$30/domain/year.
This is why I love NameSilo Since they guarentee that their prices will never change, and the also offer free privacy. I am saving 200% (On domains without a discount) compared to GoDaddy, and also I get so many more great features for free with NameSilo.
@abbecain You are most certainly welcome. Its unfortunate that so many businesses have hidden costs and surprises. Makes it so hard to believe a good deal when you see it.
Your suggestion will still be great for those who only want to take advantage of one year.
You could get the domain from GoDaddy, then transfer the domain at the end of the term to a different domain provider such as the one I provided. They charge only $8 to transfer and you get that extra whois Privacy for free (check Godaddys Terms first since they may limit this feature with this sale). That way you are paying a total of $9 for 2 years with that domain
