    To my horror someone registered my number one sweet and short web domain choice just this last Saturday. :cry::angry:

    I just registered a few alternatives with Yahoo today to make sure I don't loose those. I have about ten more to lock down and I was wondering if there is better way to do this than paying $9.99 a year one at a time with Yahoo or Go Daddy etc.

    I'm thinking of the future and I don't want to discover that I lost out by being 2 days late again.

    The additional domains when registered will point to my main service site with that service description when entered in a browser unless I build a separate site for each service. They will mainly be used on fliers, door hangers & postcards and be geared toward a specific service.

    Example:

    www.quick36.com is way easier to remember and enter than www.betteroutdoorproducts.com

    :waving:

    Dooooh! Already registered 3 domains with Yahoo. This day is not going well. :cry:

    * side note * I have another totally unrelated business and my former co-worker who is the webmaster of that establishment charges me $20 a year for domain registration. In fact I don't have a web site up for it. It's a fairly obscure type of business that has a super narrow market and it's almost pointless in putting up a website. Point being I'm sure I'd get quicker service from him on some things but it would cost more - that's why I blew $30 today at Yahoo instead of $60 with my old co-worker.

    Anyhow I'm looking for the most flexible way to bulk register more domain names for the niche services I will offer.

    Just called a web literate friend and he recommended the hosting site www.startlogic.com

    It says on their main page that "Host 50 Domains in one" - not 100% sure what that means. Is that just accepting forwarded domain to the one that is hosted? Before I inflict more damage I think I will let this rest for the rest of the day.

    :hammerhead:

    Also to add to the confusion he also recommended www.1and1.com :dizzy:

    GoDaddy.Com is the best I have used so far. Their prices are good and their site is better than most.

    Does go daddy have the feature like yahoo has that allows you to forward at NO extra charge one domain to another for the basic registration fee? $9.99

    www.startlogic.com offers domain registration for $6.95 plus free privacy. Can't beat that.

    Besides from what my html literate friend told me they have decent service - even if you're on hold a long time when you need to call in.
