Buying a Domain is Cheaper Than Buying a Coffee

I like discounted things, in fact, I prefer discounted things. I like my coupons from McDonalds that get me free coffees, and I will always buy the sale meat at the butcher a) because it’s pocket-friendly and b) because I think it tastes better.

So, why wouldn’t I love a discounted domain? Sure, you can’t eat it like my other two examples, but in ways, it feeds you more than a cup of fast food coffee or beef tongue ever could. Domains last, food expires quickly.

Here are some other comparisons to put just how cheap domains can be into perspective:

A .xyz domain ($1.99) costs less than that agenda you bought at the beginning of the year and stopped using after two weeks.

This was back when you thought that maybe if you wrote things down, you were more likely to do them. Not the case. Put your dreams and goals online. Then—because the entire world can see them—you will get shit done.

A .party domain ($2.00) costs less than the bottle of aspirin you’ll be needing the day after you win your beer pong tournament.

Was it worth it? Of course it was, but what’s even more worth it? Getting that party planning company you’ve been dreaming of off the ground with a dope ass web page. Don’t deny the world their hangovers.

A .date domain ($2.00) costs less than that time you went on that shitty Tinder date…

…with that mansplaining mortgage broker who suggested you pay for the entire bill because #feminism. #neveragain

A .space domain ($2.99) costs less than a ticket to the Planetarium.

Plus, there’s the added benefit of not having 8,000 kids on a field trip running and screaming around you. Do it.

A .cricket domain ($2.00) costs less than 1,500 live ladybugs.

I don’t have room for 1,500 ladybugs, you don’t have room for 1,500 ladybugs, nobody has room for 1,500 ladybugs. But you know what there is room for? .cricket.

A .men domain ($2.50) costs less than that incredibly pungent bottle of aftershave you’ve been buying since the 10th grade.

It’s time to expand your scent man, and your online presence.

A .win domain ($2.00) costs less than the money you lost to your fantasy football pool.

And it doesn’t hurt your pride as much either.

A .science domain ($1.99) costs less than buying the supplies needed to start your own meth lab in New Mexico to pay for your cancer treatment costs.

RIP Breaking Bad.

A .accountant domain ($2.00) costs less than that calculator you’re thinking of buying to help you attempt to do your own taxes.

It’s not worth it, trust me. Find an “.accountant” instead.

A .ca domain ($1.99) costs less than a box of Timbits.

Which I mean, are delicious, but do they feed your soul as much as that blog you’ve always wanted to start will? If they have any sour cream glazed left, MAYBE, but probably not.

At the end of the day, a discounted domain is well worth the small investment.

Why not skip the one day of coffee and Timbits and finally make those daydreams of starting your own online business, blog, or memorial site to Breaking Bad a reality?

And remember, there’s always more fun to be had with domains beyond .com. (check out our tips here) because a just that much.
