I've been using my site bizelion.net for a long time now. The member area of the host says since Jan. 30, 2006 so that's almost 14 years now. I am supposed to have unlimited web space, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited email accounts, etc. So some people would think I don't need another domain or other web hosting anywhere else.
I have had problems trying to install things and get a shopping cart to work with digital download items so I try other things if it seems like a good idea. Anyway, I found a deal where I can download a boatload of digital resell products and got a 10GB hosting account for free.
All I had to do was get the domain from any domain register site and my own host had the best deal on a domain with .work on the end instead of the higher cost of .com or .anything else and I was really shocked at the difference in prices at the other domain register sites. The problem I saw was if you pay for 1 year and then want to renew. They all get you on that second, third year etc. I understand costs go up but the host I have been using had the .work for about $4.95 per year and it was the same price per year if I paid for one, two or three. I didn't see a choice to pay for more than 3 years.
So, Yes I got 3 years on the domain, free 10 GB hosting and lifetime membership on the digital download plan.
What did all this cost me? Well the total was (rounding up) $95
I think it was a great deal so I'm not going to worry about spending that much on it.
I do not want to add links here and I'm not sure if I should say where I got the digital download membership or what the new site is ... maybe after I get some more set up on the new domain I will but for now, I'm working on it.
This post is really just to let people know they should shop around even for a domain, I don't mind that it's a .work instead of a more well known ending on it.
