    A lot of the methods revolve around creating your own domain. So I went to go daddy to see if I can get a domain for $0.99 but the offer is $2.99 and additional 14.99 a year. Is that 2.99 ever month a monthly fee? Also is there a way to find a domain in your niche that may be ranked old or outdated that hasn't been used that you can buy for a decent price. Or is it recommended to just start with a fresh domain instead of an older one? When typing in the name I want sometimes it says "Premium" which makes me confused. The price of those are really high in the thousands which makes me curious why its so high.

    So to summarize should I pick a random name close to the niche?Or is it possible to find an aged domain that has some history for a decent price close to the $3? For example if it was Drugs could pick something along the lines of LegendaryDrug

    Screw godaddy, register it at namesilo.com. Cheaper and free Whois protection. Think they also have some coupons which knock another dollar off or so, do a google search. Personally, I prefer to use a branded name - gives me more flexibility regarding Seo and looks/sounds more legit. It should be somewhat tied to the niche though, yeah. No good having a site about dogs called bluewidgets.com, right? Yes, you can find expired domains with pre-built links. In which case you'll probably have to go through godaddy auctions or something similar. However, for $3 don't expect to get anything decent. That said, there are a few good expired domains that are free to register, take a look at expireddomains.net

    Name silo, I'm looking to redirect the domain to a url(when its clicked I think that's how it works.) I was wondering is that the forwarding option after buying a domain? You forward and input the link you want it to go too?

    Honestly, I'm not sure as I haven't done it. The forwarding option sounds right, but I would reach out to their support to make doubly sure. I believe they have live chat.

    You can register domain at low price from GoDaddy, 0.99 domains are applicable for only new customers who are registering their first domain at godaddy. if its not working for you then you can use this coupon CJCR699B it will reduce your price to $2.99 (it works for old customer also) i used it few days back but can't use it again i think it works for only one time.

    The price you mentioned 2.99 is only for the first year and from second year you have to pay $14 for the renewal.

    If you can find good domain related to your niche in expired domains (not penalized of course) then you can register them.

    Hope That Help.

    Hi Mate!
    In my opinion, WebTG provided you a very cost efficient way to register your domain. But I'll also suggest you to use old one.
