title-decoHow many domains do you need?

os-iconAt a minimum, you need one domain. This domain will be the main address to your site. You cannot expect users to remember your site’s IP address so you need a domain to serve as your shortcut. Besides, your email accounts will be using your domain name and everything else connected to your site relies on this short cut.

But we recommend that you have multiple domains pointing to the same site. Why is that? So that you get more and more users to your main site. Here’s an example.

controlpanel-iconIf your main domain is about your dog breeding business, you probably have a domain that sounds like www.alaskanmalamutes.com. But if you want to further increase the traffic to your site, get related domains like:

thumbAlaskanmalamutes.biz

thumbUSAlaskanmalamutes.com

thumbBestbreedalaskanmalamutes.com

thumbtopUSalaskanmalamutes.com

thumbAlaskan-malamutes.com

store-iconThese various domains can be all pointed to your main site. Think of it as different ads placed in various locations on the highway. Even if they all point to the same store, you get more and more exposure to different kinds of people on the highway.

thumbDomains are relatively inexpensive so you can continue to add more as you can afford it.

title-decoIs this on top of my iPage account?

link-iconNo, your first domain is free with your iPage account. Succeeding domains, on the other hand, will be charged to your account. A central charging makes it easier for you to keep track of your funds and monthly expenses. To start, you can have 4 to 5 domains all pointing to the same page, if you can afford it.

Then you can eventually branch of to various spelling versions of your site, regional domains like a .co.uk or .eu.
