Before you renew, Check your rates!
When you renew your website URL addresses, take a look at the costs! Typically, website URL addresses are less than $25 / year to renew, and if you are paying more than that, you need to consider moving that URL address, which is easier than you anticipate to do. JeremiahsAutomotive.com, one of our JASPER Owner Installer websites, had a URL address with Network Solutions and got a renewal notice from them which he promptly sent via email for us to check on. In looking at the costs, we were able to save him more than $170 dollars in the renewal of his two URL addresses.
Network Solutions was one of the first .com URL product companies, and if you bought your online website URL address from them, you need to review the costs. Jeremiah had his on automatic renewal, and luckily, his credit card information had expired, leading to us looking at the costs for him. Their program is a plus - plus cost for the URL addresses set up for an automatic 1 year on each URL address renewal, "plus" a 5 year private registration fee, "plus" a forward fee if the URL points to any other address. His combined costs were in excess of $200 for the year for 2 URL addresses. We set him up with our program, which has a flat fee of $24.99 per URL address annually.
Most companies consider the cost of their URL as a simple cost of doing business and are unaware of other options or believe the steps are too difficult. Another issue is that they feel their website will go down as a result of that transfer in URL ownership for long periods of time while the transfer is completed.
The facts are, it is an easy transaction, and the change in where your URL address is parked as far as downtime is minimal.
Other issues are: I don't know my user name and password. If you are listed as the owner of that URL address with your name / phone number / email address on file, then you simply submit for a new password reset via online request or a direct call to the company.
I hope this information has helped you to streamline costs and to feel more at ease about your online marketing options. If you have any further questions, simply give us a call.
